What are braces?

Braces are an orthodontic treatment option that can help you achieve a smile that is straighter and healthier! One of the most common orthodontic treatments, braces work to improve your smile by gradually, gently aligning your teeth. Braces are made up of metal brackets and wires. The brackets are attached to the front of your teeth and are connected to each other through the use of a metal wire. As we adjust the wire, the braces guide your teeth to their ideal positions in your smile. At Joy Dental, we also offer ceramic braces that are the same color as your teeth for a more discreet orthodontic option.
