Are Gold Braces Even Practical?

Adult learns about gold braces

Nowadays, there are tons of alternatives to traditional metal braces! We’re proud to offer a number of different types of braces, including metal braces, clear ceramic braces, Invisalign® clear aligners—and gold braces.

Although gold braces aren’t as well known as the other types of braces, they’re still the preferred choice for a number of patients, including children, teens and adults.

We offer gold braces as a unique alternative to traditional metal braces, because we want you to feel confident and stylish while you undergo your smile transformation. Whatever your preferences may be, we want to accommodate you.

So, gold braces are certainly stylish, but are they practical? Here’s what you need to know.

Gold braces are equally as effective and equally as durable as metal braces!

We have great news for anyone considering gold braces. Yes, they’re just as effective and just as durable as metal braces. When it comes to gold braces vs. silver braces, the only difference is the appearance!

Gold braces are actually made of high-quality stainless steel, the same material used for metal braces. To make gold braces, the metal brackets and wires are covered in pure 24 karat gold.

It sounds pretty fancy to have 24k gold braces, doesn’t it? These one-of-a-kind braces are strong, durable, high-quality, effective and trendy.

How much do gold braces cost?

When you find out that gold braces are coated in 24k gold, it may lead you to wonder, “do gold braces cost more?”
Not in our office! At Cooper Orthodontics, gold braces are the same price as regular braces. For all of our treatments we offer a number of affordable payment plans. During your complimentary consultation, we’ll work with you to create a payment plan that meets your financial needs.
