Types of Braces at Star Smiles


metal braces

Metal braces have never been easier to use thanks to modern technological advancements. Straightening your teeth with metal braces is possible because to the use of stainless steel brackets and archwires. In order to produce a unique and colorful smile, colored elastics (rubber bands) may be applied to metal braces.


self-ligating braces

Self-ligating braces are made using the same materials as normal braces. Self-ligating braces need fewer appointments and apply less friction on the teeth since they don’t use elastics. Self-ligating braces may be worn with a variety of brackets, including metal, ceramic, or translucent. A special clip helps the archwire guide teeth into place instead of elastics, making them about the same size as metal braces. This means that there are less changes to make because of the clip’s lower pressure.


clear braces

Ceramic braces are less obvious than metal ones since they are made of translucent materials. Older teenagers and adults worried about their looks frequently turn to ceramic braces in order to achieve their aesthetic goals. Ceramic braces, which are less apparent than metal braces, need more oral hygiene care since they are larger and more delicate.



Transparent aligners are a set of clear, removable, and comfortable acrylic trays. For brushing and flossing, the aligners may be removed, enabling you to eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Because the aligners include no metal, patients don’t have to worry about mouth sores.
