Traditional Metal Braces
Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces and are more comfortable today than ever before. They are made of high-grade stainless steel. Today's metal braces are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive.

Ceramic Braces
Ceramic braces are made of translucent (clear) material therefore less visible on your teeth than metal braces. They are most popular with adult patients, due to their cosmetic appeal. While they are visually less prominent, they do require more attention to oral hygiene as ceramic braces are larger and are more brittle than their metal counterparts. For these reasons, ceramic braces tend to be used more on upper front teeth than on lower teeth.

Invisalign® straightens your teeth without wires and brackets, using a series of clear,
customized removable appliances called aligners. It's virtually undetectable, which means hardly anyone knows that you're straightening your teeth. This system is available to adult patients with certain orthodontic bite problems. Ask us if you are a candidate for the Invisalign system.
The Invisalign® System uses advanced 3-D computer graphics technology to precisely calibrate and manufacture a sequence of custom aligners designed to move your teeth in small steps to the desired final position prescribed by your dentist. Each aligner is worn for two weeks and only taken out to eat, brush and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next, your teeth will begin to move gradually, week-by-week until the final alignment prescribed is attained. To ensure the best possible results, only a dentist who has been trained and certified by Align Technology can diagnose and treat using Invisalign®.
