Should I Get Metal Braces?

At Romeoville Dental Center, we love giving our patients the smiles they’ve always dreamed about. If you have been living with a crooked smile that leaves you too embarrassed to show those pearly whites in pictures, then our orthodontic services are a great option to help straighten your teeth and give you the smile you have always wanted.

There are a variety of different orthodontic treatments available, from Invisalign® to ceramic braces to traditional metal braces. For many patients, metal braces are still the gold standard to ensure a healthy and straight smile.

Advancements in Metal Braces

Metal braces have changed a lot over the years, and today’s metal brackets and wires are much smaller and less painful than their predecessors. Many metal braces even incorporate heat-activated wires that can use your natural body heat for faster results and less pain.

Versatile & Affordable

Metal braces are versatile and can be used to treat anything from minor misalignment issues to more serious cases of crooked teeth. They are also usually the most cost-effective from of orthodontic treatment.

Express Yourself Using Colored Bands

If you have kids that need braces, they might be fans of the colored bands that are usually available with traditional metal braces. Unfortunately, metal braces are the most noticeable form of braces and may require longer treatment periods than other options. But that doesn’t mean you can’t show off some style while you straighten your teeth!

Consult with Your Dentist

If you’re looking to straighten your teeth, schedule a consultation with Dr. Arora or Dr. Patel. Every patient has different needs so our dentists will help you determine which orthodontic service is right for you. Metal braces may be the best option for some, but there are also other orthodontic treatment options we can discuss with you, including Invisalign clear aligner therapy. These retainers are an inconspicuous way to straighten your teeth in just six to twelve months. For additional information, check out our June 2017 blog post comparing metal braces and Invisalign.

Hands down the best dental office to receive your dental and cosmetic needs. The staff is always very friendly and welcoming. It’s also so nice knowing that they have 3 amazing doctors on staff who know their craft. No matter which provider you see, you just know you’re in great hands. My last visit was with Dr. Sheikh for Botox. She’s very thorough and has a keen eye for detail. I’m two weeks out from my Botox treatment and let me just say, my skin has never felt so smooth or looked as radiant as it does now. Always a pleasure visiting Dr. Sheikh!

Please look no further! This entire office has their act together. I’ve been seeing Dr Sheikh and she is so patient and gentle.She is also a perfectionist and listens to your concerns and delivers options. I’ve also seen Dr Nina and Dr Patel and certainly no complaints with either of them. I’ve had 3 crowns and numerous fillings and no problems with any of the work. Thanks for building my complete confidence!
