Braces

Whether your orthodontic needs are mild or complex, braces are the most efficient way to align your teeth and jaw. Traditional metal braces have long been the treatment of choice to correct the widest array of dental issues and create amazing smiles for adolescents, teens, and adults. Luckily for you, braces are smaller and more comfortable than ever before! 

 

Treatment with metal braces includes high-grade stainless steel brackets that are securely bonded to your teeth, connected with a nickel-titanium wire that is held in place with elastic bands. Often a variety of specialty appliances, like a Herbst appliance or palatal expander, are used along with braces during your treatment journey to ensure your smile is picture-perfect! 

Invisalign®

Invisalign® orthodontic treatment is the premier, clear alternative to braces that can help you get a stunning smile in a super discreet way. Invisalign uses a series of virtually invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that gently straighten and shift your teeth into the proper position and bite alignment. Invisalign is a popular treatment for teens and adults with active lifestyles. 

With Invisalign treatment, you’ll receive custom aligners that you’ll wear for one week cycles, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will shift — little by little, week by week—until your smile is perfectly transformed!

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces are made of a single crystal sapphire material and are less visible on your teeth than metal braces. Often ceramic braces are requested by older teenagers or adult patients who have cosmetic concerns, but are looking for the features of traditional braces. While they are less visible, ceramic braces are more brittle than metal braces, and are only used on the upper six front teeth.
