Invisalign

Clear Aligners, such as Invisalign, are a series of removable plastic trays that straighten your teeth, much like braces.  Because they are removable, you have more freedom to eat what you want without fear of breaking brackets and your teeth are easier to keep clean.


Clear (or Ceramic) braces

Clear braces can be a great alternative to conventional braces. They are made of a clear material and, thus, less visible on your teeth than metal braces.  Many older teenagers and adult patients prefer this more esthetic option.  Oral hygiene is even more important with these braces, however, due to staining possibilities with the clear brackets.  With great oral hygiene, we can achieve a great smile, without the visibility of metal braces.

Traditional metal braces

The most common type of braces are metal braces, which can straighten your teeth.  Oral hygiene is important, as always, to maintain efficient treatment. You can also add colors elastics to help express your colorful smile.
