Traditional Metal Braces
Traditional metal braces are the most common type, and are more comfortable today than ever. Made of high-grade stainless steel, they straighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires. With metal braces, you have the option of adding colored elastics (rubber bands) for a more unique and colorful smile.
Clear (Ceramic) Brackets
With Clarity ceramic brackets, you’ll have a lot to smile about, even before your braces are removed! By incorporating the strength and function of traditional braces with the aesthetics of translucent ceramic, Clarity brackets can give you the same orthodontic results without the need for large, noticeable metal braces.
They move teeth with the same efficiency as traditional braces and are safe to use for patients of all ages. Made of innovative new ceramic material for an attractive appearance, Clarity brackets are also extremely durable and fracture resistant.
Consider Invisalign to get the beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted — without braces. A complimentary consultation with one of our doctors can determine if Invisalign is right for you.
Invisalign uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you’re wearing. So you can smile more during treatment as well as after. Invisalign is made with 3D computer imaging technology and has been proven effective. More than 70% of orthodontists in the US and Canada are certified to treat with Invisalign.
Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. The aligners are also comfortable, with no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment.
No metal and wires usually means you spend less time in a doctor’s office getting adjustments. Invisalign also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start, so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
