Traditional Metal Braces

An Improvement on the Original

Today’s traditional braces are smaller, more comfortable, and more precise than ever. Small rubber bands are used to secure the wire to the brackets.

Each visit, you get to choose the color of your bands—from rainbow to solid colors to silver to blend with the metal.

Clear Braces

A less conspicuous way to align Your Teeth

Clear braces provide the same straightening power without the metal. Advancements in orthodontic materials allow clear braces to blend with the natural shade of your teeth.

We color match your braces to your teeth for a more natural look. While no braces are completely invisible, clear braces come close.

Self-Ligating Braces

A clever way to get a Beautiful Smile

Available in metal or clear versions.

Instead of using rubber bands to secure the wire to the braces, self-ligating braces have built in technology to secure the wire. They’re easier to clean and offer a great choice for someone who does not want colored rubber bands as a fashion accessory.

This technology can make for shorter appointments and can often align teeth more quickly.
