Types Of Braces


At Atlanta Smile Studio, we have many different types of braces available to our patients. During your consultation, Dr. Venn will help discuss your treatment options, and assist in determining the best treatment for you.

Metal Braces

Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces. Today, metal braces are more comfortable than ever before. Made using a high-grade stainless steel, metal braces straighten your teeth using a combination of metal brackets and archwires. Want to add some color to your braces? With metal braces, you have the option to add colored rubber bands.

Gold Braces

Looking for something different than the typical silver braces? Gold braces are similar to your traditional metal braces. They are made of stainless steel but are coated in gold.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic Braces are less visible than metal braces. They are made using clear materials and are used for both older teenagers and adult patients with cosmetic concerns. Clear ceramic braces are both larger and more fragile than metal braces. They require more attention to oral hygiene and are often used more on upper front teeth than lower teeth.

“Invisible” Braces – Invisalign

What exactly is Invisalign? This type of treatment uses a series of clear, removable, and nearly invisible aligners to straighten teeth. With Invisalign, you can eat and drink what you want, and can also brush and floss with ease!

“Invisible” Braces – Lingual Braces

Lingual braces are placed behind the teeth and are therefore ‘invisible’ when you smile. Lingual braces are customized to match the unique shape of your teeth. Lingual braces are a great option for athletes, musicians, models, and adults.
