braceMTraditional Metal Braces

Many adults still have painful memories of the big clunky braces from the past. Luckily, times have changed, and so have metal braces. Modern braces are smaller and more comfortable than ever before with low profiles and strong adhesives.

braceC   Ceramic Braces

Clear braces are made of a ceramic material. They are most popular with adult patients and older teens because they offer better aesthetics than traditional braces.  The ceramic brackets blend in with the teeth, making them less noticeable than metal braces.


braceI   Invisalign

Invisalign consists of a series of customized, clear BPA-free plastic tray aligners that are removable and typically replaced every 2 weeks to keep your teeth moving in the desired direction.
