What Are Braces Made From?

Dental braces are made either entirely from stainless steel or a combination of metal and ceramic/dental-grade clear plastic. A bracket will be bonded to each tooth with the help of dental adhesives, and wires will be run through them. The ends of the wires will be fastened to a stable support, which will allow us to tighten or loosen them to alter the pressure applied to the teeth. When transparent or tooth-colored brackets are used instead of metal brackets, they stay under disguise and are less visible against the teeth, making them more aesthetically pleasing.

Why Choose Braces?

Effectiveness: Braces are very effective in the treatment of most types of malocclusion. Issues like open bite, closed bite, crossbite, overbite, underbite, etc., can all be treated using braces.

Strong: Metal braces offer high strength and durability. They don’t snap or break easily, allowing them to stay effective for the entire duration of the treatment period.

Aesthetic: Traditional metal braces are less aesthetic, but clear braces can be made to match the color of the teeth, helping them stay under disguise. For children, they can also be customized to look colorful as well.

Inexpensive: Compared to alternatives like Invisalign, ClearCorrect, or other clear aligners, metal braces are pretty affordable.
