What are Braces?

The Braces


In technical terms, braces are fixed orthodontic appliances that consist of brackets and wires that slowly and gently move the teeth into place for an aligned bite and a stellar smile. This is the long way of saying: Braces give you the straight teeth you’ve always dreamed of.

The Benefits of Braces

Braces will whip your teeth into shape and they’re an effective way to treat a host of dental issues such as overjet, underbite, spacing, crowding and crossbites.

While a perfect smile is awesome and the obvious benefit of braces, treatment can actually improve your speaking and chewing, make teeth easier to clean to fight off tooth decay and gum disease and boost your overall health.


Will Braces Work For My Smile?

You’re probably imagining the metal variety when you hear the word “braces” but there are other options as well, including ceramic braces, gold braces, and behind-the-teeth braces. Even those traditional metal braces are much smaller and more comfortable than they were in the past.

While most people are candidates for braces, no two sets of teeth are the same. Therefore, you’ll want to schedule a free consultation with Dr. Kwong so he can evaluate your bite and present you with the best options for your particular case.

What Our Patients Are Saying

Dr. Kwong is the nicest orthodontist you'll ever meet! Not only is he kind and understanding, but he also took the time to explain all the different steps of my Invisalign treatment. As an adult getting braces for the first time, I was apprehensive about looking like I was a teenager again,but throughout the entire process Dr. Kwong was helpful and understanding of my concerns.
