Clear Aligners

Clear aligners (like Invisalign or Clarity Aligners) are an awesome alternative to braces. Unlike traditional braces, you can remove clear aligners to eat, drink, and brush your teeth! This allows for more flexibility and better hygiene.

Ceramic Braces

In a nutshell, clear braces tend to be more comfortable than traditional braces and lower-maintenance than clear aligners. The brackets are small and smooth, with rounded corners to reduce rubbing and irritation. They are a great middle-ground between clear aligners and metal braces, giving you an option for treating complex issues while keeping a low profile.

Lingual Braces

Lingual braces are placed at the back of your teeth, instead of cemented to the front like traditional braces. This not only makes them almost impossible to see, it also allows you to get used to speaking and eating with your braces more quickly. They are especially useful for those who play an instrument, sing or participate in public speaking.

Metal Self-Ligating Braces

Self-ligating braces are the traditional form of treatment that uses metal brackets, wires and rubber bands to straighten your teeth. This method is ideal for more complex treatment needs. You can customize your look by choosing from our huge selection of colored rubber bands!
