Silver metal braces are the most commonly used braces in orthodontic treatment, and are made of a durable mixture of stainless steel, nickel and various other metals in small amounts.
There are hundreds of variations of these braces, but all have the key characteristic of having overhanging edges, or “wings”, around which a metal or elastic tie is used to hold the orthodontic wire in place.
Elastic ties come in several different colors and are responsible for the decorative “braces colors” seen on young patients’ teeth.
These types of braces allow the wire to be tied in very tightly to the bracket, allowing excellent control in aligning crooked teeth.
Generally, these silver metal braces cost less compared to clear braces or other cosmetic options.
