Types of Braces in Atlanta and Marietta, GA

Braces

Wright Orthodontics offers several types of braces for children, teenagers and adults in Atlanta, Marietta, and the surrounding communities of Georgia.

Why Are There Different Types of Braces?

One of the primary reasons that people feel uneasy about getting braces is the way that they look. Modern designs for braces take into consideration aesthetics in addition to the proper realignment of the teeth. By offering different types of braces, Dr. Wright is able to encourage more people to take the journey of orthodontic treatments.

How Can I Learn More About the Types of Braces?

There are primarily two types of braces — traditional metal braces and ceramic braces.

What Are the Benefits of the Different Types of Braces?

Metal and ceramic braces work using the same fundamental principles. A combination of bands, brackets, and wires place a specific amount of constant pressure on the teeth. The primary differences between metal and ceramic braces are:

  • Brackets and bands used for ceramic braces are clear (wires are made of metal)
  • Metal braces may be more affordable
  • Ceramic braces tend to be more comfortable to wear
  • Metal braces are more durable than ceramic braces

The type of braces that are best for you depend on your lifestyle, budget and other factors. We can provide you with a side-by-side comparison for your orthodontic treatment so that you feel confident in your decision.

How Much Do the Different Types of Braces Cost in Atlanta?

Metal braces are typically covered by dental insurance, and ceramic braces may be covered at a different level or not at all.
