Metal & Ceramic Braces
How much do they cost?
The average cost in Texas is $3,900 with insurance and $5,400 without insurance.
Do braces hurt?
Today’s braces are much more comfortable than ever before. Thanks to light Nickel Titanium wires! While you may feel a little uncomfortable during the first few days, over-the-counter pain medication and orthodontic relief wax will help reduce the pain.
Are there color choices available?
You can “dress up” in a number of different ways to fit your personality – you want orange elastics to show support for Houston Astros? We got it. Or you want the braces that are less visible? We have clear ceramic or gold aesthetic ones for you.
How do braces affect my lifestyle?
While there are certain foods, such as soft fruit, that are better suited, there are some that you should avoid during treatment – chewy food (e.g., bagels), crunchy food (e.g., popcorn), sticky food (e.g., gum), hard food (e.g., nuts), and sugary food (e.g., candy).
What happens after my treatment is done?
You need to wear retainers for the rest of your life. Yes, that is right! You need to wear it for as long as you want your teeth straight. Otherwise, your straight teeth will gradually revert to their original state.
Do I need to still see my general dentist during orthodontic treatment?
You need to continue seeing your general dentist regularly for cleanings and checkup during ortho treatment.
