Types of Braces

Metal Braces

Metal braces, as the name suggests, are made of a metal, specifically, stainless steel. They are often referred to as traditional braces, as they are the first type of braces to be used. There are several types of metal braces, and Dr. Partovi only uses the highest quality and newest technology.

Lingual Braces

Lingual braces are tucked in the backside of your teeth, no one needs to know you are having braces unless you deliberately open you mouth wide enough to show them.

Gold Braces

Gold braces are stainless steel braces coated with 24-karat gold and are popular with patients of all ages.

Clear Braces

Clear braces serve as a cosmetic alternative to traditional metal braces by blending in more with the natural color of the teeth or having a less conspicuous or hidden appearance.
