Types of Braces

Dr. Maura Milas Vroman and the rest of the staff at Vroman Orthodontics would like to thank you for considering us as your Moline, IL orthodontic practice. We work hard to ensure our patients are welcomed into a friendly, comfortable environment where they can receive the quality treatment they deserve. We offer a variety of services using the latest innovative technologies available to guarantee results our patients can be proud of. Learn more about the types of braces we offer below, and feel free to contact us with any questions regarding your treatment.

Metal Braces

Known as the most traditional form of braces, metal braces use high-grade stainless steel to straighten our patients' teeth. Today's metal braces are much smaller and more comfortable than they have been in the past. Additionally, we have found that metal braces tend to be very popular amongst our young and adolescent patients who get to add personality to their braces with colored bands of their choice.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic (clear) braces are made out of a translucent material that is very popular amongst our adult patients. Their cosmetic appeal combined with their innovative technology truly separates these braces from the rest. We have found however that these ceramic braces tend to be more fragile than ordinary metal braces, and the elastic ties can discolor over time.


Unlike ordinary braces that use metal wires and brackets to straighten your teeth, the Invisalign® System uses a series of clear aligners to deliver excellent results. Invisalign combines 3-D computer technology with 100-year-old orthodontic science to create custom made aligners specifically for you. These aligners are translucent and are virtually unnoticeable to the naked eye.

While Invisalign is a great choice for straightening your teeth, we have found that it is not for everyone. Invisalign is only intended for adults and teens that are candidates for this treatment. The only way to find out if Invisalign is right for you is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Vroman who will discuss the best treatment for your specific condition. Check out our Invisalign FAQ page to learn more about this unique system.
