What are the different  of types of braces I can get?

When it comes to the different types of braces, most people only think there’s one type of braces. But in reality, there are a variety of braces that all vary in how they work and in their appearance. Braces are all made of the same components, but how they are applied can be very different.

Metal Braces

Held on to teeth with space-age adhesive, metal braces are the most common type and they come in silver or gold. Traditional braces are more effective at treating extreme overcrowding than other options like clear braces or Invisalign aligners. Traditional braces are also less expensive than these types of aligners, which can be a major advantage for those who cannot afford the cost of Invisalign. Despite this, traditional braces do have some disadvantages as well, including the metal mouth appearance that they give.

Tie-less Braces

Tie-less (aka Damon System) helps reduce the pressure exerted on teeth and require fewer adjustments. Damon Clear is part of Damon Smile, which combines tie-less brackets and high-tech archwires that are clinically proven to move teeth quickly and comfortably with spectacular results. Damon Clear combines the best of traditional clear braces and efficient technology to deliver a discreet treatment experience with results that go beyond straight teeth.

Clear Braces

Clear or “tooth-colored” brackets bond onto the outside surfaces of your teeth, similar to conventional metal options. Clear braces are similar to traditional metal braces, except they have clear brackets instead of metal ones. This makes them less noticeable, and a more popular choice for adults who want to straighten their teeth more discreetly. Invisible braces like Invisalign and other clear aligners are not the same as clear braces, because they don’t use a wire at all.


Low-profile customized braces that fit on the inside surfaces of your teeth so no one can tell they’re there. Invisible braces have the same components as conventional braces, but they’re fixed to the back of your teeth, on the tongue side. Because they’re behind your teeth, they’re nearly invisible.
