360 Orthodontics Offers Gold Braces
Gold braces create quite a fashion statement, but if you suffer from metal allergies, they are also a fantastic option to get you the beautiful smile you are looking for. Although traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces, gold braces are a great alternative for those looking to either stand out, or for those people who are allergic to the metal used in traditional metal braces. Gold braces are actually a stainless steel core, which is then coated in gold.

Historically, some of the earliest dental brace systems were made of gold, or a mix of solid gold and silver. Gold has always been a popular choice for dental and orthodontic procedures because gold is a softer metal and easy to shape around a tooth. Today, dental professionals use stainless steel as a base coated in gold vs. using solid gold because the cost of gold has risen dramatically over the past several decades. Additionally, because gold is such a soft metal, braces made from solid gold can shift more than those with a stainless steel base. A stainless steel base actually work much better than solid gold braces because fewer adjustments are needed.
