Gold braces are comprised of high-grade stainless steel coated with 24-karat gold. An extremely popular option, they offer a distinct look that patients of all ages love. They’re also very similar to traditional metal braces in that they work exactly the same way. The only difference is their appearance – which means the right choice for you will depend on your unique personality and personal style.
An overview of gold braces
Your gold braces treatment will begin during your initial consultation at 360 Orthodontics. During that meeting, Dr. Partovi will perform a careful examination of your mouth – taking x-rays, measurements and impressions. This allows her to assess the severity of your dental issues, while creating a customized plan to correct them.
If you decide to move forward with gold braces, Dr. Partovi will use a special dental cement to attach tiny brackets to each of your teeth. From there, she will connect the brackets with a wire and elastic rings. Throughout your treatment, you will return to the office so Dr. Partovi can check in on your progress and tighten your braces periodically. In this way, she applies the precise amount of pressure necessary to shift your teeth and align your jaw – producing the ideal smile you deserve.
Benefits of gold braces
Patients of all ages love gold braces because they give them the opportunity to express themselves with a unique and distinctive look as they straighten their teeth. Plus, because they’re made of high-grade stainless steel (not actual gold), they are extremely strong and can move your teeth quickly – achieving a straight and healthy smile as soon as possible.

Are braces painful?
There was a time when braces were very painful. However, that’s no longer the case. Thanks to profound advancements in the dental industry, straightening your teeth with gold braces is now an extremely comfortable experience.
As such, the appointment during which your gold braces are placed will be entirely free of pain. However, you may feel slight soreness in the days that follow, and after each time your braces are tightened, due to the movement of your teeth. To manage this discomfort, Dr. Partovi recommends eating only soft foods for awhile and taking an over-the-counter pain reliever.
How much do gold braces cost?
Because every patient’s dental issues vary in severity and require a different length of time to achieve an optimal outcome, the final cost of your gold braces can vary greatly. After evaluating your teeth, mouth and gums during your initial consultation, Dr. Partovi can provide you with a comprehensive quote, outlining all of the costs involved so you’re completely prepared for the investment.
