Mullen Orthodontics specializes in Metal Braces (Traditional Braces), as well as Ceramic Braces.
Metal Braces (Traditional Braces) for Adults and Children
Traditional metal braces are smaller and more comfortable than ever, and Mullen Orthodontics treats a wide range of problems with them.
Metal braces have been used for decades to help give people the beautiful smiles that they have always desired. Modern braces are smaller and more comfortable than ever. Dr. Mullen uses traditional metal braces to treat a wide range of problems. These include aesthetic issues, functional problems, or most commonly, a combination of both. Today’s metal braces can be very inconspicuous. But a lot of our patients, both kids and adults, enjoy adding some color to their smile, by switching the colors on their braces at each appointment.
Dr. Mullen is able to straighten crooked teeth and to give you a beautiful smile that you can be happy to see when smiling in the mirror every day. Orthodontic treatment is faster and easier than ever when the latest technology is used, which helps improve your orthodontic treatment experience.
When many people think of orthodontic braces, they may believe they are only for the young as an unfortunate rite of passage. Many adults these days are more comfortable with wearing braces, both at home and in the workplace. Mullen Orthodontics treats more and more adult patients each year with traditional braces. Furthermore, several patients have been in their 70’s!
Ceramic (“Tooth-colored”) Braces
Ceramic braces are very popular for many of our adult and adolescent patients, because they are much less noticeable, but work just like traditional braces. Consult our Ceramic Braces Page for detailed information.
