Costs to suit your budget.

Invisalign® Clear Aligners

Invisalign clear aligners are a top choice for patients of all ages! We don’t want our patients to be limited in their treatment options based on their age, lifestyle, or preferences. No matter your age, you can be treated with Invisalign clear aligners. We offer Invisalign First for kids, Invisalign for teens, and Invisalign for adults. Invisalign technology is comfortable, discreet, virtually-invisible and highly-effective. This form of invisible braces works in a series of clear, flexible trays, custom-made to fit your smile. Each set of clear aligners in your treatment plan is designed to shift your teeth into a beautiful alignment with gentle yet consistent force.

Advanced LightForce Brackets

We offer advanced LightForce bracket technology for metal braces! These modern brackets are 3-D printed and customized to each individual tooth to shift the teeth with increased comfort and precision. LightForce technology uses highly-advanced, custom-designed brackets that increase the efficiency of treatment and minimize the need for adjustments. LightForce brackets are 3-D printed specifically for each patient to improve placement accuracy and reduce treatment time. These brackets also use indirect bonding trays that eliminate the need for manual bonding and placement to maximize the end result. If you’re interested in LightForce bracket technology for your personalized treatment plan, please reach out to us!

INBRACE Lingual Braces

Lingual braces are similar to traditional, metal braces, except lingual braces are invisible! We offer state-of-the-art INBRACE custom-designed, invisible braces that are bonded to the back of the teeth instead of the front. These braces use ‘gentleforce’ technology and advanced ‘smartwire’ loops to accommodate healthy tooth movement. Each smartwire loop is custom-made to fit individual teeth, and doesn’t use friction or sliding mechanism force. Many children, teens and adults choose lingual braces for their discreet placement. These braces are equally as effective as traditional braces, but they don’t have the same evident appearance. Lingual braces also eliminate the possibility of discoloration left on the front of the teeth. If you aren’t diligent about brushing and flossing your teeth and avoiding foods and drinks that stain the teeth while wearing traditional braces, you may notice some minor discoloration once your braces are removed. Although discoloration is not a big deal and can be easily reversed with whitening treatment, lingual braces might be the better option for you if this is one of your concerns.
