Gulland Orthodontics and Dr. Charles Gulland offer a handful of options for your treatment. Each has their advantages depending on your specific needs, so talk to our orthodontist to see which option is right for you. If you have any questions about the different types of braces available in Hermitage, Pennsylvania, please give us a call at 724-981-3950 or 724-588-2235 today.


The most common and durable type of braces is metal braces. A high-grade stainless steel is used in the brackets and wires to ensure strength and optimal level of tension.


If you are hoping for a more discreet option without sacrificing durability (as well as keeping the option to treat jaw alignment issues), our orthodontist may suggest ceramic braces. Ceramic braces have a tooth-colored, translucent appearance that is less prominent than their metal counterparts.

Aligner Therapy (Clear Aligners)

The most discreet option for orthodontics is clear aligners. Aligners are clear plastic overlays which, using computer-simulated 3D models, gradually shift your teeth from their original place to their optimal, most aligned position. Not all misalignments can be helped with aligners alone, so ask Dr. Gulland if clear aligners are the right option for your needs.
