Types of Braces
Traditional Metal Braces
The most basic, common, and affordable type is regular metal braces. These are made out of top quality stainless steel and are a great choice for treating all types of orthodontic cases. The metal brackets are bonded (“glued”) to you teeth and are joined together by an arch wire which moves your teeth in a desired position. The brackets can be customized with colored elastics, making them a great choice for younger patients who get excited about changing colors every visit.
American Orthodontics Iconix braces are the new kind to join the types of braces family at Orthodontic Experts. These particular braces are stainless steel champagne- colored brackets that offer the aesthetics of “rose” gold. Due to their champagne color, they allow for more translucency of the enamel, resulting in a whiter smile. A touch of style goes a long way towards helping our patients look and feel best during their treatment. Iconix braces is the new kind of braces that everyone is talking about. As Iconix braces are made of stainless steel, they are just as durable and effective as traditional metal braces, and they do not require special maintenance or any extra work on your part. Iconix braces offer the excellent alternative for our patients who prefer the elegant look of rose gold, as well as patients with nickel sensitivity.
There are two different types available for gold braces: Iconix stainless steel champagne gold- colored braces, and Iconix Gold 24K gold-plated brackets. Both of these types of braces provide the refined and sophisticated look of brilliant rose gold, making them great options for orthodontic patients looking for an aesthetic upgrade. Why Choose Iconix Braces? Well, when you’re matched with gold wire and clear ligatures, these types of braces offer our patients a pleasing cosmetic system that requires literally no sacrifice on your part. It is our top priority to provide our orthodontic patients with the highest quality products available and that is why we have added the Iconix braces to our types of braces inventory.
The least visible option is lingual braces. Lingual braces are attached to the back surface of the teeth, making them completely unnoticeable to other people. Lingual braces are custom made and harder to work with, making them the most expensive alternative. Because lingual braces are the most “invisible” option, they are a great choice for young professionals and adults who don’t want anyone knowing that they are wearing braces. We are proud to offer two types of completely custom made lingual braces (Incognito Hidden Braces, and Harmony Invisible Lingual Braces) to the residents of Chicagoland area.
