Understanding the Various Types of Braces

At Dr. Kineret’s Orthodontics office, we offer a variety of choices for your braces from metal braces to clear braces and many, many colored band choices too! We also offer Invisalign! We will discuss the right braces option for you at your complimentary consultation.

Metal Braces

Metal brackets are silver in color. Thanks to the latest technologies, the metal braces are smaller than ever and you can make them colorful and unique with fun and bright colored bands! We have one of the biggest selections of vibrant color choices in Placer County!

Clear Braces

Clear braces, or “tooth colored” braces, are ceramic brackets made of composite materials. They are very strong and do not stain. The bands that hold the archwire on to the ceramic brackets are often white, clear or colors if you so desire. This is a great alternative to the traditional metal brackets.

The clear bands can stain if you do not take proper care of them. Your orthodontist will review with you what you should and shouldn’t eat to avoid any unnecessary staining. Although the bands are changed monthly, you won’t have to live with it long.
