Metal braces

The Benefits of Your Cropwell Braces

Traditional braces have stood the test of time due to their strength, durability, and affordability, consistently ranking as the top orthodontic treatment year after year. Today's braces are better than ever, capable of correcting a wide range of oral issues, from the simplest to the most complex. Traditional metal braces often work faster at closing gaps and aligning teeth than other treatments, potentially reducing your overall treatment time. They also represent a cost-effective option for budget-conscious patients.

Metal Braces

The most common type of braces, traditional metal braces, are typically constructed from high-grade stainless steel. They straighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires. Today's metal braces are more comfortable and fun than ever - you can choose colored elastics to add a dash of personality to your treatment! For those preferring a subtler approach, we also offer clear or tooth-colored elastics.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic Braces offer another excellent option for straightening your smile. They function the same way as metal braces, but the brackets are made with clear ceramic material. They're very popular with our older teen and adult patients due to their discrete nature. Since the brackets tend to be a bit larger and more brittle than their metal counterparts, we usually don't recommend them for our younger patients. Ceramic braces are often used more on the upper front teeth than the lower teeth.

Your Cropwell Braces Journey with Designer Smiles Orthodontics

At Designer Smiles Orthodontics, we provide personalized, advanced orthodontic care, focusing on each patient's unique needs. Our treatment process begins with gathering comprehensive data about your oral health, which informs the creation of a customized treatment plan. This plan, which includes the optimal placement of brackets and the application of precise pressure, initiates the process of remodeling, gradually guiding your teeth into their correct positions.

However, maintaining these new positions requires constant pressure, which is why regular use of a retainer is crucial once your braces are removed. Our team, led by Dr. Barry Benton and Dr. John Benton, leverages state-of-the-art technology and leading-edge techniques to provide efficient, comfortable care that transforms your smile.
