Gold braces add a distinct sense of style to wearing braces. They are very similar to traditional metal braces, made of stainless steel, but electroplated with a thin layer of gold. This gives them a distinctive and unique appearance.
This cosmetic option has the same advantages as traditional metal braces. Some individuals choose gold braces simply because they are attracted to the metal and others feel they give a warmer appearance.
Surprisingly, the cost of gold braces is comparable to most clear braces.
For those allergic to nickel, a component of stainless steel, gold is an alternative choice. Gold braces make orthodontic treatment possible for patients with nickel allergies.
