What Are Metal Braces?

Metal braces stand as a tried-and-true solution that gives you a straighter smile and elevates your overall dental health.

At ATX Braces, we embrace metal braces because of their versatility and practicality for patients of all ages.

Our metal braces feature robust stainless steel brackets and wires, designed to ease your teeth into their ideal positions over time.

How Braces Work

Metal braces work their magic by applying a constant and subtle nudge to your teeth. This gradual pressure guides your teeth to their new positions as your treatment progresses.

They excel at addressing issues with your bite, aligning your teeth, and enhancing the overall look of your smile.

At ATX Braces, we use the latest advancements in metal braces technology to offer you treatment that makes an impact and lasts a lifetime.

The Components of Braces

Metal braces consist of different components, each crucial in improving your smile. Let’s look at what those parts are and what they do for you:


Brackets are small, square attachments affixed to the front surface of your teeth. They secure the wires and elastics responsible for helping your teeth move where we want them.


Archwires are slender, flexible wires that thread through the brackets. These wires exert pressure on your teeth, gradually coaxing them into correct alignment throughout your orthodontic treatment.


In certain treatment cases, Dr. Brenner or Dr. Konstantoni may use bands or metal rings to encircle your rear teeth. These bands provide additional support to the overall braces configuration, contributing to the effectiveness of your orthodontic journey.


Elastics, or rubber bands, are vital connectors linking various brackets and bands. They play a pivotal role in fine-tuning your bite and addressing specific tooth movements by applying targeted pressure where needed.

Go for the Gold:
Champagne-Colored Braces

ATX Braces proudly offers Iconix braces so you can showcase your beautiful smile throughout your entire treatment and beyond.

Gold-colored Iconix brackets combine durability with discreetness. They’re as sturdy as traditional metal braces yet boast a unique color that allows them to blend seamlessly with your teeth.

Unlike ceramic braces, these gold brackets are less prone to breakage, making them a reliable choice for getting your dream smile while adding a touch of elegance to your appearance.

How Braces Benefit You

Metal braces from Dr. Brenner and Dr. Konstantoni at ATX Braces offer a range of advantages to bolster your oral health and overall well-being:

Improved Self-Confidence

Your smile is your best accessory, and when you love it, it shows! One of the exciting aspects of undergoing orthodontic treatment is proudly displaying your newfound smile, accompanied by a boost in self-esteem.

Better Bites

A well-aligned bite means your upper and lower teeth fit together seamlessly, like puzzle pieces. This enhances the functionality of your teeth and prevents them from premature wear and tear.

Enhanced Oral Hygiene

Straighter teeth are easier to maintain! When your teeth are no longer crowded or overlapping, reaching every nook and cranny becomes simpler while brushing and flossing. Closing gaps between teeth can also prevent food from becoming trapped, improving oral hygiene.

Elevate Your Smile's Aesthetic

With properly aligned teeth, brushing and flossing become more effective. Closing gaps between teeth also prevents food particles from getting stuck, promoting a healthier and more attractive smile.
