Traditional Braces

Traditional metal braces are still the most popular way to get the straight and beautiful smile that you want. Today’s braces have been improved and are smaller and less invasive than ever. 

Damon Braces System

Damon braces require less tightening and fewer adjustments because they utilize shape-memory wires. Instead of using elastics to hold the archwire in place, Damon braces use a sliding component that is a part of the brackets.

Wildsmiles Braces

Wildsmiles allows you or your child to show your style, creativity, and hobbies with every smile. Wildsmiles brackets break away from the traditional square–instead, there are lots of fun shapes to choose from!

Clear Braces

With clear aligners (or clear braces), you experience only a minimal change in your appearance. Metal braces, on the other hand, are much more noticeable to everyone around you.


The Invisalign method involves a series of clear alignment trays that are custom made for your teeth. Invisalign trays are made of a clear plastic, which is more comfortable than metal brackets and wires.

Guide to Braces

Braces are easy. Said no one ever. As many of us know, getting braces can be a complicated process if you don’t have resources available to learn about all that’s involved in the process. They’re not just a cosmetic procedure; braces are important for aligning our orofacial structure and teeth in a way that is healthy, functional, and strong. We’ll be using our teeth for the rest of our lives, so we should take good care of them! 

At Showtime Smiles Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentistry, we believe an important part of the orthodontic process is teaching our patients about what options are available before getting braces, how the procedure is administered, and how to properly maintain braces afterward. Between choosing what types of braces to get and figuring what foods are okay to eat, getting braces can be confusing and complicated! We want everyone with braces to be fully informed about the process, so they can confidently wear and care for them.

To help patients navigate the process, here’s our guide on how to maneuver the world with braces. It includes the answer to anything you could ever ask about braces from our orthodontic expert, Dr. Dan! And if you still have questions about getting braces in McKinney, we’re always happy to answer.
