Metal Braces

Metal braces are what most people think of when they hear “braces.” One of the most common used orthodontic solutions, they have evolved into an advanced option in today’s day and age. Made from high-grade stainless steel for durability and designed with a smaller bracket for cosmetics, they are more comfortable and subtle than ever.

Clarity Clear Braces

For many patients, Clarity clear braces are the perfect solution. With the durability of metal braces and the subtlety of Invisalign, they provide an effective treatment without the look of traditional braces. Clear braces provide clarity but will also not stain so that patients can walk around feeling confident in their smile. However it is not all about looks, comfort is important as well, Clarity clear braces have a smooth rounded shape to avoid discomfort in your mouth.



Unlike traditional bracket and wire treatments, Invisalign is a set of aligners that is not only clear, but also removable for your convenience. This option is geared toward adult orthodontic patients and is designed by computer simulation to gradually give you the beautiful smile you’ve always dreamed of.
