Metal braces are the most popular with kids and teenagers. They love using different colors of ligature ties. These braces are much smaller than ever before.

Translucent or clear ceramic braces are the most popular with adults. You have to be very close to someone to be able to see them. And because they are a ceramic material, they are more fragile.
