A Variety of Braces for a Variety of Lifestyles

Sims Orthodontics knows that braces aren’t a one-size-fits-all solution. To accommodate the various lifestyles of our Pensacola patients, we offer multiple types of braces made of different materials. We’ll discuss which ones are a good fit for you at your complimentary consultation.

Metal Braces

Metal braces are made of high-grade stainless steel and are the most common type on the market. Metal braces have come a long way in the last several years, and today, they are smaller, more comfortable, and more attractive.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces are made of a clear, translucent material. Their cosmetic appeal makes them a popular choice for adult patients.

Gold Braces

Gold braces are made of stainless steel coated with 24-karat gold. They are popular with patients of all ages!

Lingual Braces

Lingual braces are attached on the lingual or inside surfaces of the teeth. They are less noticeable, and some patients even prefer them over the ceramic braces.


The Invisalign System is a series of clear overlay templates called “aligners,” which are generated by computer simulation to gradually move the teeth. This system is available to adult and teen patients with certain orthodontic bite problems.
