    Context: At an orthodontist appointment. The orthodontist has to put "a small metal plate" between the patients teeth so she can pull the back teeth in.
    Yo diría una "pequeña placa de metal".
    ¿Está bien eso?
    Gracias

    Puedes poner una "pequeña placa de metal", "una plaquita metálica" o "una pequeña placa metálica" (mejor que "de metal", pero eso es una cuestión de gustos).
