Metal & Clear Braces in Muscle Shoals

Metal braces are the type of orthodontic treatment that most people are familiar with. While traditional braces are the most noticeable form of adult orthodontics, the modern brackets of today are actually much smaller and less noticeable than they've been in the past. Metal braces are also the least expensive type of orthodontics, allowing a patient to have a more cost-effective treatment. Metal braces are often a popular choice for children because they come with the opportunity to change the color of the bands every visit!

Clear braces provide a more discreet way to straighten teeth while still reaping the benefits of orthodontic treatment. Made of a ceramic tooth-colored material, these braces function just as metal appliances do, but in a much less noticeable way. They can sometimes have larger brackets, but because of the clear nature, this is not noticeable to others. Clear braces are more delicate than traditional braces, and are typically recommended for adult orthodontic treatment. They are a perfect treatment option for patients who may dislike the idea of wearing a visible metal appliance on the teeth but still desire the opportunity to achieve a perfectly aligned smile.

Clear Orthodontic Aligners in Muscle Shoals

Not a fan of traditional braces? You're in luck! We are proud to offer clear aligners to help you achieve the smile of your dreams. Patients will wear each set of customized, removable aligners for two weeks before moving onto the next set, in a process that gradually straightens the teeth.

Clear aligners offer an unparalleled level of convenience and affordability. Because the aligners are removable, a patient can continue eating their favorite foods and drinks with no dietary restrictions. Additionally, clear aligners provide very comfortable treatment and are nearly invisible to others!
