There are Four Different Types of Braces
- All porcelain (mainly porcelain).
- Porcelain metal.
- Gold alloy.
- Basic metal alloys.
All-ceramic braces are made of porcelain-based filling materials. It is recommended to use them when restoring anterior teeth. Because its color is closer to natural teeth. The dentist or dental technician may need to remove certain tooth structures to attach porcelain braces to the teeth. This material is highly wear-resistant.
Porcelain metal will be connected to the outside of the metal structure to provide tooth support and provide a good seal to prevent leakage and reduce the recurrence of tooth decay. When porcelain is fused with metal, it is easier to repair than all porcelain. A dentist or dental technician will remove a moderate amount of tooth tissue during installation, but it is very durable and powerful.
Gold alloys are composed of gold, copper and other metals, and provide a very powerful material that adheres to the tooth structure. The gold alloy is resistant to wear and fracture, and does not wear out the teeth in contact with it. This material has a high degree of biocompatibility with gum tissue.
The base metal alloy contains non-precious metals and provides strong strength for braces and teeth, and is very corrosion resistant. When preparing to use basic metal alloys, the dentist or dental technician will remove the minimum amount of healthy tooth tissue. This material is resistant to wear and is gentle on neighboring teeth.
