There is a reason why traditional metal braces are still so common – they are efficient and effective! But today’s metal braces are much sleeker and less noticeable than ever before, while still able to effectively move even the most difficult malocclusions.

They are less noticeable than metal braces, however they are not as strong as metal brackets.
