Metal Braces

The most common type of braces used by the orthodontist are comprised of metal brackets. Although long-established, they have become more comfortable and efficient through the years in producing beautiful smiles and stable bites. We use the best quality braces and give you the option to customize your look with our array of elastic color selection. 

Ceramic Braces

These kinds of braces function similar to metal braces, but alternatively match your tooth color making them less visible. These brackets typically appeal more to adult patients or older teen patients who may have cosmetic concerns. While these clear braces are a bonus esthetically, they can discolor and fracture easily therefore we only use them on the upper anterior teeth and reserve them for patients who can keep up with the high maintenance care. You can speak to the orthodontist is these are right for you.

Your orthodontist will decide if Invisalign is the right treatment for you. Invisalign® treatment moves your teeth in small steps to the desired final position using a series of clear aligners. We use the state-of-the-art iTero 5-D intraoral scanner to digitize images of your teeth. No impressions or molds are necessary. This scan is the basis for the fabrication of the aligners. Each aligner is precisely manufactured to fit your mouth at each stage of the treatment plan. The aligners are to be worn for 20-22 hours a day and are only removed when eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. Each aligner moves the teeth as specified and is worn for 1-2 weeks each. Once you reach your final aligner, an overall outcome assessment is completed. If everything is perfect, you are ready for retainers. If adjustments are needed, a refinement is started.

iTero 5D Scanner


Our computerized intra-oral scanner reduces the need for mouth filling, gooey, alginate impressions that are typically used to make molds of our teeth. Our hi-tech scanner allows us to digitally visualize your teeth and gums and can even simulate what your teeth will look like after orthodontic treatment.
