We offer an alternative to traditional silver-colored braces. Our gold braces have the same durability as traditional stainless steel, but they have advantages beyond just aesthetics. Some patients may have allergic reactions to the nickel in stainless steel. Gold braces eliminate that irritant, allowing those patients to consider braces for orthodontic treatment.
Gold braces offer a unique look and an alternative to the silver-colored metal of traditional braces. You can add a little bling to your smile!
Gold braces are just as durable as the traditional stainless steel braces, so you don’t have to worry about them breaking easier than traditional metal braces.
The gold on the braces prevents those sensitive or allergic to nickel from reacting as they would to stainless steel. This means gold braces provide an extra treatment option.
Gold braces offer the same treatment time and effectiveness as traditional braces. Treatment time for braces varies but typically averages 12-36 months.
Gold braces are popular with adults because of their unique appearance, but teenagers like them, too! The gold plating offers several advantages beyond the aesthetic ones.
Gold tends to attract plaque less, so gold braces are easier to keep clean. The color tends to corrode less, though certain acidic foods can change the color over time. The gold plating also means fewer allergic reactions for those sensitive to most metals. In short, gold braces offer a treatment alternative to patients who might not otherwise be able to consider metal braces.
