Metal & Clear/Ceramic Braces in Kyle, TX

A straighter smile for a confident future.

At The Village Orthodontics in Kyle, TX, we understand that each smile is unique, which is why we offer a comprehensive range of braces to meet the diverse needs and preferences of our patients. Braces are a fundamental tool in orthodontics for correcting a variety of dental issues, including crooked teeth, overcrowding, gaps, and bite misalignments. Here’s a closer look at the types of braces available at our practice, designed to guide you toward making the best choice for your smile transformation journey. 


Traditional Metal Braces

Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces and have been the go-to solution for orthodontic treatment for decades. They consist of high-grade stainless steel brackets attached to each tooth, connected by a thin archwire, which is periodically adjusted to gradually move the teeth into the desired position. Today’s metal braces are much smaller and more comfortable than in the past, making them a reliable and effective option for patients of all ages.


  • Highly effective for a wide range of orthodontic issues
  • Cost-effective option
  • Option for colored bands for a personalized touch 

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces function similarly to traditional metal braces but feature brackets made from a clear or tooth-colored ceramic material that blends more seamlessly with your natural teeth. This option is particularly popular among teens and adults seeking a less noticeable orthodontic solution without compromising the effectiveness of treatment.


  • Less visible on the teeth
  • Effective for various orthodontic needs
  • Offers a more aesthetic alternative to metal braces

Lingual Braces

Lingual braces offer the most inconspicuous form of treatment because the brackets and wires are placed on the backside of the teeth, making them virtually invisible from the outside. Custom-made to fit the unique contours of your teeth, lingual braces are an excellent option for those concerned about the aesthetic aspect of orthodontic treatment.


  • Invisible from the outside
  • Custom-fit for comfort and effectiveness
  • Suitable for most ages and orthodontic issues 

Clear Aligners

Clear aligners, such as Invisalign®, are an innovative and discreet alternative to traditional braces. This system uses a series of custom-made, clear plastic trays that fit snugly over your teeth, gently moving them into the desired position over time. Aligners are removable, allowing for easier eating, brushing, and flossing.


  • Virtually invisible
  • Removable for eating, brushing, and flossing
  • Generally offers a more comfortable treatment experience 

Self-Ligating Braces

Self-ligating braces use a specialized clip in place of elastics to hold the archwire, reducing the amount of pressure exerted on the teeth and requiring fewer adjustments. This system can come in metal or ceramic options and provides a more comfortable and often shorter treatment period than traditional braces.


  • Reduced discomfort and fewer office visits
  • Available in metal or ceramic
  • Can result in shorter treatment times 

Choosing the Right Braces for You

Selecting the right type of braces is a decision that will significantly impact your orthodontic experience and results. At The Village Orthodontics, our dedicated team is here to provide detailed consultations, assess your specific needs, and recommend the best treatment option for achieving your dream smile. We combine our expertise with advanced orthodontic technology to ensure that your treatment is as effective, efficient, and comfortable as possible.

Braces for Children

Early intervention can play a crucial role in the development of a child’s smile and overall oral health. At The Village Orthodontics, we recommend an initial orthodontic evaluation by age 7 to identify any potential issues that may benefit from early treatment. Braces for children not only aim to correct misaligned teeth but also guide the growth of the jaw and development of proper bite relationships.

Braces for Teens

The teenage years are the most common time for orthodontic treatment, as most permanent teeth have erupted, making it an ideal period for correcting dental misalignments. We understand the importance of self-esteem and confidence during these formative years, which is why we offer a variety of braces that cater to the aesthetic and functional needs of teens.

Braces for Adults

More adults are choosing to undergo orthodontic treatment now than ever before, thanks to advancements in technology and the availability of discreet treatment options. At The Village Orthodontics, we offer a range of braces designed to meet the unique needs and lifestyles of adult patients, ensuring that it’s never too late to achieve the smile you’ve always wanted.
