Choose From Different Kinds of Braces
Traditional braces are still the best choice for many people of all ages to adjust the alignment of teeth. We often recommend braces for cosmetic dentistry reasons, but they also improve your mouth’s function and the uniformity of your teeth. Orthodontics treatment with traditional braces varies in time from patient to patient, depending on your age, degree of misalignment, and other issues. The usual length of treatment is one to three years.
In addition to traditional metal braces with silver-colored wires and brackets, we offer a discreet braces option. Ceramic braces are the same size and shape as traditional braces and work exactly the same way. Because they use tooth-colored or clear brackets and tooth-colored wires, they’re not as noticeable as metal braces.
Enjoy the Convenience of ClearCorrect Aligners
An inconspicuous alternative to braces is ClearCorrect, an orthodontic treatment that uses a series of smooth plastic aligners instead of metal wires and brackets. ClearCorrect aligners are:
- Invisible – It’s likely no one will realize you’re wearing them.
- Comfortable – There are no wires or metal to irritate your mouth.
- Removable – Eat, drink, and brush and floss normally.
- Fast – Though it varies, treatment time can take as little as six months!
