Metal Braces

Metal Braces

Today’s metal braces are made from high grade stainless steel. They are smaller, more comfortable and used to treat many orthodontic problems.

Types of metal braces include:
  • The micro mini braces - are one of the smallest most comfortable and least visible metal brace available.
  • The self-ligating braces - utilizes a “sliding door” technology to attach the wires to the braces
  • Damion braces - are a specific type of self-ligating brace  
  • Behind the teeth braces - no one will know you are wearing braces unless you tell them 
  • Gold braces - are stainless steel braces coated with gold
  • Removable braces - including expanders and removable functional appliances which are used to augment treatment

Colorful Braces


Colors can be added to all of the above types of braces and changed at every visit to match school colors, holiday colors, sports teams, etc.

Clear Braces

Clear Braces

Clear braces are made from a translucent (clear) ceramic material that blends in with the natural color of your own teeth. They are highly cosmetic braces and are popular with both adults and teens that may be sensitive about having their teeth straightened at any age. Clear braces work just like metal braces do.
Invisible Aligners

Invisible Aligners

Invisible aligners consist of a series of custom made smooth, clear (virtually invisible) plastic tooth aligners, fabricated especially for you, that fit over your teeth. Every two weeks a new aligner is inserted to gently and gradually move your teeth into place.
Adult Braces

"Short-Term" Friendly Adult Braces

Short-Term Adult Friendly Braces emphasize moving teeth efficiently into the appropriate position to affect change rather than addressing every imperfection. The vast majority of adults with crooked teeth are candidates for “Short-Term” orthodontic treatment.

“Short-Term” orthodontic treatment generates an aesthetically pleasing smile within 6 to 10 months for most adult patients. Call today to find out more.
