Metal Braces

Brackets are bonded to the front of each tooth and are then connected by the archwire which serves to guide the teeth into the desired positions. Today’s metal braces are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive than in the past.

Ceramic Braces

Due to their aesthetic appeal, ceramic brackets are very popular amongst adult patients. A patient should consider that ceramic braces are more fragile than traditional metal braces and the elastic ties can discolor between orthodontic visits.

Clear Aligners

Clear aligners are customized, comfortable, removable, and virtually invisible. Ask us if clear aligners are the right treatment option for you.
