Traditional Metal Braces

Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces and are more comfortable today than ever before.  Orthodontist, Dr. Bond, only uses the highest quality braces for our Charlotte NC patients!  Braces made of high-grade stainless steel.  Metal braces straighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires. With metal braces, you have the option of adding colored elastics (rubber bands) for a more unique, custom, and colorful smile.

Metal braces have long been the workhorse of orthodontics and in the hands of a board certified orthodontist like Dr. Bond, they can be the most affordable treatment options and have the best results.

Clear Braces

Ceramic braces function very similarly to metal braces, but they are made of clear materials and are therefore less visible on your teeth than metal braces. For this reason, ceramic braces are used mainly on older teenagers and adult patients who have cosmetic concerns. While they are visually less prominent, they do require more attention to oral hygiene as ceramic braces are larger and are more brittle than their metal counterparts. For these reasons, ceramic braces tend to be used more on upper front teeth than on lower teeth.

Self Ligating Braces

Self-ligating braces, like Damon Braces, are made from the same materials as traditional braces. However, self-ligating braces do not require the use of elastics to move teeth, meaning fewer appointments and less friction being placed on the tooth. Self-ligating braces come with traditional metal or clear/ceramic options for brackets. They are the same size as metal braces, but use a specialized clip in place of elastics to help the arch-wire guide teeth into place. The clip helps reduce the amount of pressure being placed on the tooth, and requires fewer adjustments because there are no elastics to replace.

Invisalign &
ClearBond Aligners

Clear aligners are a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable acrylic trays that straighten your teeth like braces. Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment, plus brushing and flossing are less of a hassle. The aligners are comfortable and have no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment.

Our custom made, in-house aligners are called ClearBond Aligners. ClearBond Aligners take advantage of our in-house digital scanner and 3D printer technologies to be able to design, customize, and print all in our Charlotte office!


You've worked hard for your beautiful smile; keep it that way!

Finally, your braces have been removed and your smile is beautiful, straight, and best of all, metal-free! However, your orthodontic journey isn't quite completed. To keep your smile looking its best, you'll have to wear a retainer to preserve and stabilize your results. Retainers are needed to control or limit potential changes in tooth position. They are used after braces treatment to hold teeth in their correct alignment while the surrounding gums, bone, and muscle adjust to the new positioning of your teeth.

At Bond Orthodontics, we want our smiling patients...to keep smiling! We use the latest technology in our Charlotte office to custom print retainers for our patients.

Early Orthodontic (Phase I) Treatment

Early treatment (also known as Phase One) typically begins around age eight or nine (Phase Two will begin around age 11 or older). The goal of early treatment is to correct the growth of the jaw and certain bite problems, such as underbite. Early treatment also helps to make room for permanent teeth to come in properly, lessening the chance of extractions in the future.

If your child is between the ages of seven and eight and shows signs of needing orthodontic care, or if you have been directed by your family dentist to visit the orthodontist, please contact our practice and schedule an appointment. Our team will provide your child with an initial exam, and discuss with you the best steps to take toward caring for your child's smile.
