Metal braces are the most common type of braces and are smaller and more comfortable than ever. They are durable, easy to keep clean, and can be dressed up with different colored elastics bands for a unique smile every month.
What Are Braces Made of?
Metal braces straighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires.
Brackets are bonded to the front of each tooth and connect to one another by an archwire, helping to guide your teeth where Dr. Tompkins wants them to move.
With metal braces, you have the option of adding colored elastics (rubber bands) for a more unique and colorful smile.
