At Cocoona, we specialize in cosmetic dentistry and offer a variety of braces types that suit your functional and aesthetic needs.

Metal braces are the most common type of braces to straighten teeth for teenagers and adults. They are very effective at moving teeth quickly and conveniently. They are easy to work with and can be customized with different nice colors.
We offer up-to-date technology in metal braces which are smaller, comfortable, neat and more attractive than older styles.
Advantages of Traditional Metal Braces
Conventional metal braces are a great choice because of their strength, durability and ability to move teeth fairly quickly. The elastic bands/modules attached to these brackets come in multiple colors and can be customized to allow a unique look for you or your child’s braces. Since metal braces are fixed to the teeth, they are much harder to lose than removable options. This will help eliminate the cost of replacement.
Disadvantages of Traditional Metal Braces
The main disadvantage of metal braces is that they are more noticeable than some newer options. And since they are not removable, metal braces will require more effort to clean. While they are more noticeable, they are still very common and they provide very effective results.
Ceramic Clear Braces
Ceramic braces are made of clear/white composite material. It works exactly like metal braces but are significantly less noticeable.
It is a great choice for older teens and adults who want to straighten their teeth with as little attention as possible. Many people will not even notice that you are wearing braces if you opt for a ceramic option.
Advantages of Ceramic Clear Braces
Ceramic braces are less noticeable than metal braces but still have enough strength for most orthodontic uses to straighten your teeth with less public attention.
Disadvantages of Ceramic Clear Braces
The most common and frequent question we get does clear braces get stains. In fact, the ceramic material is prone to stains but unfortunately, the clear elastics used in ceramic braces do get stains if you eat specific food types such as curry or if you drink too much black coffee. However, since these elastics are usually changed monthly, this is not a huge concern for many people.
Clear aligners such as Invisalign are a transparent piece of plastic aligner that is used to move your teeth gradually and perfect your smile without having metal or clear braces fixed to your teeth. Clear aligners are removable so you can easily clean your teeth and eat anything you like without having to worry about your braces.
At Cocoona dental, we make a detailed mold of your mouth and create customized, clear aligners that slip over your teeth, gently moving them over time. The aligners are replaced every two weeks in order to gradually move teeth into their final positions. In cases of minor to moderate crowding, spaces or misalignment of your teeth, this is often a better option to straighten your teeth, reduce crowding, close minor gaps, and fix bite issues. And this is definitely the best and perfect option if you want to straighten your teeth without the extra attention. Consider Clear Aligners if you’re ready to perfect your smile without the visibility of traditional braces and call us now to book your appointment.
Advantages of Clear Aligners
In some cases, Clear Aligners can be as affordable as normal braces and provide numerous other benefits:
- Extremely invisible, most people won’t be able to tell that you’re wearing them
- Since Clear aligners can be removed, eating your preferred type of food will not be sacrificed. You can eat anything anytime you like.
- No brackets to break, no wires to dislodge or poke your cheeks which lead to less unexpected visits to the orthodontist.
- With the proper car, the aligners won’t become discolored.
- Generally, clear aligners are gentler to your mouth soft tissue as compared to normal braces.
Damon system and Self-Ligating Brackets
The Damon system offers several benefits for patients. It is made from stainless steel for stability and a clear material for aesthetics. The smooth rounded structure improves patient comfort while maintaining excellent performance.
The Damon System uses a self-ligation technique which utilizes lighter wires and lower friction brackets to move your teeth while gently resulting in faster treatment times due to its sliding mechanism, strong, mechanical base bonding and solid walls structured to control tooth movement.
In addition to greater comfort, the Damon System as well as self-ligating brackets, eliminates the need for rubber elastics around each bracket which make it easier to clean and maintain good hygiene.
Self-ligating braces, just like Damon braces, offer many benefits for patients. They use a self-ligation which means that the wire is held by a mechanical door built into the braces instead of the rubber elastics. This will eliminate the friction caused by elastics which enables the orthodontist to use lighter forces to move teeth gently and efficiently.
Advantages of Damon and Self-ligating braces
- Expansion devices are usually less required
• Fewer visits to the orthodontist as compared to conventional braces
• Longer time intervals between visits which saves your time
• Easier to keep clean than conventional braces
• Available in metal and ceramic for Aesthetic orthodontics

Orthodontic treatment uses appliances, tooth removal, or surgery to fix the way teeth and jaws are aligned. There are many ways to treat poor bit. Expert opinions differ about when to start treatment. Your dentist or orthodontist may give you a choice between early or later treatment or may prefer one specific approach.
Fixed orthodontic appliances are sets of wires and brackets cemented to the teeth. These are commonly called braces. Over a period of about 24 to 28 months, the wires are tightened and adjusted, gradually applying enough force to move the teeth.
Functional appliances use the muscle action from speaking, eating, and swallowing to create forces that move teeth and align the jaws.
Child and teen treatment
The aim of treatment in the childhood and teen years is to move permanent teeth into place. The orthodontist will time the treatments to match your child’s natural growth spurts.
Treatment for crowding, the most common malocclusion problem, may mean removing (extracting) some permanent teeth. But orthodontists avoid removing permanent teeth when they can
