What Do The Different Types Of Braces Have In Common?

Whether you choose a clear type of braces, a bracket-free type of braces, or choose to go with traditional metal braces, there is one benefit that will be consistent across your choices. While many orthodontists place each bracket individually, Dr. White uses a method called indirect bonding. With indirect bonding, a mold is taken of your mouth, and the brackets are placed on the cast. This allows Dr. White to get a much more accurate placement, also allowing several adjustments to be made to create a truly perfect alignment.

Indirect bonding is a faster method for application, resulting in more efficient, more comfortable, and more accurate results for you!

Metal Braces

Dr. White can help you decide if traditional metal braces are the best treatment choice for your case. Traditional metal braces are stronger and more resilient than ever before, and can be heat activated to speed up the treatment process. At White Orthodontics, the archwire band and braces can even be customized with cool shapes and colors, making braces stylish and fun!

Braces Behind The Teeth

braces behind the teethDr. White also offers braces that are placed on the back of your teeth so you can hide your treatment without hiding your smile. Lingual braces are often used in combination with SureSmile's robotic wires, to create fast and efficient tooth movement with incredible results. This is a favorite treatment option for many adults who want the benefits of a healthy bite and a beautiful smile but don't like the idea of traditional metal braces.

Clear Ceramic Braces

clear ceramic bracesA more discreet treatment alternative to metal braces is ceramic braces, which are made to match the color of the teeth. You can even choose tooth-colored brackets to blend in with your teeth, so they are even less noticeable. Ceramic braces are made of a clear composite which doesn't stain upon eating or drinking. This allows you to straighten your teeth and obtain a beautiful smile in less time and less visits!


invisalign clear aligners

Invisalign® is an excellent option for patients who want a nearly invisible orthodontic treatment with the following benefits:

  • Invisible aligners- Invisalign clear, removeable aligners cannot be seen when you or your loved one are wearing them!
  • A Comfortable, Customized fit- Dr. White will utilize advanced technology to create an impression of your mouth, so your aligners fit perfectly into place to avoid irritation.
  • A Faster Treatment with better results- In only 9-15 months, Invisalign offers a 50% faster treatment solution than two years with traditional braces.

When you or your loved one begins the Invisalign® treatment you will receive several sets of custom fit aligners, and in just a few months you will have a straighter smile!

Invisalign Teen

Invisalign® Teen may straighten teeth quicker and more comfortably than traditional treatment. With traditional braces, certain food options can bend or break your braces. With Invisalign removable aligners, you’re free to eat whatever you want! They're also virtually invisible, so classmates and friends won't even know your teen is wearing braces!

To find out if Invisalign treatment is the right treatment option for your teen, download your FREE Savings Certificate and call 804-477-8426 to schedule your free White Orthodontics Smile Consultation today!
