To help ensure you’re making the right decision when it comes to achieving the perfect smile, here’s a look at some of the options that Dr. Zainali offers:

Traditional Braces 

When someone mentions traditional braces, they’re typically talking about metal or ceramic braces. And while both of these types of braces have been around for quite some time, technology has enabled them to be a much more patient-friendly option than they once were.

As far as cost, metal braces are considered the best value available as they provide a reliable and effective solution that’s also economical. Ceramic braces are a bit more money but offer the added benefit of blending in with your tooth’s natural color.

Who Should Consider Traditional Braces?

Traditional braces are typically the optimal option for kids and teens that need a reliable solution to fix their smile. For parents on a budget, metal braces make for the best option for their children because they’re a no-risk solution while being the most cost-effective as well.

Ceramic braces, on the other hand, are generally well suited for adults that are looking for braces that are less visually evident than their metal counterpart (and can be worn comfortably in the workplace). And while ceramic braces are becoming more popular among youth, they do require quite a bit more care than metal braces to maintain their visual appeal.

Invisalign is a type of clear braces that, unlike traditional braces, are removable. The treatment process starts with using molding to assess your current smile. From there, a series of clear, removable aligners are created. Each aligner is worn over a period of 2-3 weeks as they work to straighten your teeth gradually.

Who Should Consider Clear Braces? 

Clear braces like Invisalign are a great option for adults or older teens that are looking to achieve a perfect smile discreetly. While they’re generally not suitable in severe cases, or with younger children, they’ve become popular due to their flexibility (you can remove them) and unobtrusiveness (people may not even notice you’re wearing them).
