Metal Braces 
Brackets are placed onto the front surface of the tooth and are made of metal. The brackets are bonded to the tooth surface with a glue-like material. Arch wires are attached to the brackets that will apply a gentle pressure on the teeth causing them to move.
Clear Ceramic Braces.
Ceramic or clear braces offer the same benefits as metal braces, work in the same way and have the same components,however,the brackets are tooth-coloured or clear and are therefore less noticeable.

Clear Aligners. (Invisalign)
An alternative to braces is the Invisalign system which uses a series of clear removable aligners that move the teeth into correct alignment. When eating or brushing and flossing, the aligners can be removed.
