Types of Braces

Orthodontic Treatment in Vancouver, WA

At the office of Dr. Lauren Cai, we're proud to provide world-class orthodontic care to patients throughout the greater Vancouver, WA area. We strive to personalize treatment for each of our patients, designing a custom plan that makes orthodontic treatment fit into your lifestyle – not the other way around. We know every patient is different and offer a wide variety of treatment options to our patients, including several varieties of braces.

Metal Braces


The days of huge, clunky metal braces are over! Modern braces are thinner, lighter, more comfortable, and more aesthetically appealing than ever. Metal braces offer a reliable, durable, and cost-effective treatment option for almost any orthodontic condition.

Incognito Braces


Incognito braces, also called lingual braces, are the only form of orthodontic treatment that's completely invisible. Just like regular braces, Incognito braces use metal brackets and wires to straighten teeth – but the brackets are mounted to the inside (tongue side) of the teeth! This makes Incognito braces impossible to see from the outside.

Clear (Ceramic) Braces


Ceramic braces use the same basic mechanism as traditional braces, but the brackets are made from a clear ceramic composite material instead of stainless steel. This makes clear braces far less noticeable than traditional braces, providing an aesthetic advantage. However, clear braces are slightly more fragile than metal braces, so we usually recommend them for adult orthodontic treatment.
