Metal Braces, Modern Benefits

Dr. Glenn Glass and our dedicated team at Glass Orthodontics are excited to offer cutting-edge braces to our community. Our traditional metal braces are not just robust and durable — they're also surprisingly affordable.

Gone are the days of bulky, noticeable braces. Thanks to advancements in orthodontics, our metal braces are sleeker, subtler, and more comfortable than ever. They're champions at tackling complex dental challenges, often speeding up your journey to a perfect smile.

And let's talk about cost-effectiveness. Our metal braces achieve amazing results without the need for overly complex technology or pricey equipment.

Champagne / Gold Braces

These champagne brackets give you the power of traditional braces but look cool, like clear braces.

The gold blends beautifully with your smile, giving you an attractive sparkle.

What Makes Our Braces Stand Out?

Metal braces are a combination of carefully designed components working together to align your teeth into a perfect smile. Let's explore the parts that make this transformation possible.

Dr. Glass uses top-quality brackets crafted from a blend of stainless steel, nickel, and other metals. These brackets are designed with precision, ensuring your comfort and effective treatment.


Dr. Glass securely and comfortably attaches these metal brackets to your teeth with a special dental adhesive, ensuring they stay in place throughout your treatment.


This isn't just any wire. It's a carefully shaped metal line that Dr. Glass expertly adjusts to guide your teeth gently and efficiently into their ideal positions.

Elastic Ties

Elastic ties are rubber bands that secure the wire to the brackets and maintain the correct level of tension for tooth movement. These bands stretch out over time, so you’ll change them regularly to keep your treatment on track.

They also add a personal touch to your braces with a variety of color choices!

Rubber Bands

These rubber bands, or elastics, aren't just for show — they're a key part of your treatment. Dr. Glass uses elastics to fine-tune your bite, ensuring your smile isn't just beautiful but also functional.

Orthodontic Bands

Orthodontic bands are the foundation of your braces. These sturdy metal rings go around select teeth — usually your molars — to anchor the entire braces system.

They provide a stable base for attaching brackets and wires to ensure each component works together for effective tooth movement.


Spacers are small rubber bands that gently create space between your teeth before placing orthodontic bands. These tiny yet mighty devices slip between molars to create a perfect space for the metal bands.

How do braces work?

Braces apply continuous pressure over time to slowly move your teeth into alignment. The process begins with Dr. Glass taking detailed photos and X-rays of your mouth and possibly using our iTero Element scanner for a precise 3D image.

Using these images, Dr. Glass outlines the specific movements each tooth needs to make to give you a healthier, straighter smile.
