Braces in Richmond Hill

It’s great to have choices, isn’t it? At Lefferts Braces, you are not confined to just the traditional option of metal braces. We have three great possibilities for you, including metal, but also two that are designated as being clear, so that it is less obvious that you have braces on, or even impossible for someone else to notice.

Our braces in Richmond Hill are designed first and foremost to give you the straightest and most attractive smile possible. When your teeth are properly aligned, it also means that you will not experience discomfort from crooked teeth, nor will you have difficulties flossing, which if that occurs means you will be more prone to tooth decay and gum disease. Metal has been in use virtually since orthodontics began. And in some cases, they still may be the best way to go. Today’s metal braces are more lightweight and even stylish. Or you can choose ceramic. Our braces in Richmond Hill are constructed similarly regardless if they are metal or ceramic. The biggest plus is that because ceramic is very close to the color of your teeth, it blends in. Where there is a major difference, however, is when you get Invisalign. These clear braces are made of transparent plastic. They are nearly undetectable to anyone looking at you. They are more comfortable than other types of braces, and they are removable. They stay in most of the time, working hard to reposition your teeth, but take them out to eat, brush, and floss. Avoid the food restrictions of metal and ceramic braces; enjoy the advantages of more efficient oral hygiene. And all the while, you’re getting optimal orthodontic care.

All you need to do is contact our office and we will schedule a time for you to come in for a consultation and examination regarding our braces in Richmond Hill. No matter which one you go with, you can’t go wrong.
