Available in low profile and miniature models, 3M metal braces are more comfortable than ever!
The first concern most people have when it comes to getting braces is the look. But braces have come a long way from the large, traditional metal brackets you may have in mind.
3M offers metal braces which are smaller than standard braces but are still just as strong. That means you can get your perfect smile with less discomfort – and brushing may be easier, too! 3M metal braces are designed to match the curve of your teeth, so they're more likely to stay firmly attached throughout your treatment.
The unique design accommodates natural anatomy of the tooth.
Smooth surface allows for increased patient comfort.
Smaller bracket dimensions not only equal greater comfort but also lead to better hygiene.
They fit your lifestyle and your individuality – choose from a range of colorful band options to customize the look.
First, you’ll get x-rays, take photos, and make an accurate mold of your teeth. If you have any x-rays from your dentist, bring them along. This is the time to ask all your questions – so come prepared!
This appointment may last for up to two hours. The braces will be bonded to your teeth using a special adhesive and curing light. Finally, your orthodontist will run an archwire through the braces to hold them in place.
Adjustment appointments may be recommended every 4-8 weeks throughout your treatment. These routine "adjustments" go much faster than getting your braces in the first place.
