If you need teeth straightening, you may be happy to find that you have a variety of modern options to help give you the smile you have always wanted.

Types of Braces

At Almaden Valley Surfside Kids Dental, we provide these types of braces:

  • Traditional Braces: Made from metal, this type of braces is the most common teeth straightening treatment available and has been the option of choice for generations. Modern metal braces are smaller, made of biocompatible metals, such as stainless steel, and use modern techniques to straighten teeth.
  • Clear Braces: Clear braces are not actually clear. They are made of a ceramic material that is matched to your natural tooth color, which blends into your smile for a discreet appearance. They function just like traditional braces.
  • Clear Aligners: As the most recent development in orthodontics, clear aligners use customized, removable oral appliances that slowly shift your teeth into the optimal position for your smile. We offer one kind of clear aligner: Invisalign® clear aligners for both adults and teens.

When you have your initial orthodontic appointment with us, Dr. Derick Phan will examine your mouth and jaw, often using digital X-rays, to find out which treatment will be best for you. Our orthodontist and team will discuss these options with you and answer any questions you may have about the different types of braces in Almaden Valley and San Jose, California. Call us at 408-770-9383 today to learn more.
