Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces and are more comfortable and aesthetically pleasing today than ever before. Gone are the days of a mouth full of metal, the modern option is much sleeker. These braces are made of high-grade stainless steel; metal braces straighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires. With metal braces, you have the option of adding coloured elastics (rubber bands) for a more unique and colourful smile. These braces are often a common choice for children, being able to pick and change their favourite colours is usually a selling point for them!
