Traditional Metal Braces

metal_thickMetal braces are the most common type. They are made of high grade stainless steel, titanium, or chromecobalt. Today's metal braces are smaller, more comfortable, and more attractive.

Self-Ligation Brackets

Self-ligation brackets ("SL") are metal or clear braces that eliminate the need to tie in archwires to the braces.

Ceramic Braces

clearCeramic braces are made of translucent (clear) material. They are most popular with adult patients due to their cosmetic appeal.


Gold Braces

Colors can be added to match your outfits, favorite sports teams, school colors, or holiday colors.


invisalignThe Invisalign system is a series of clear overlay templates – called aligners – that have been generated by computer simulation to gradually move the teeth. This system is available to adult patients with certain orthodontic bite problems. Ask us if you are a candidate for the Invisalign system.


Lingual (invisible behind-the-teeth)

lingualLingual and Incognito braces are placed behind your teeth so no one will know that you are wearing braces unless you tell them. Incognito is a brand name of lingual which are created using state-of-the-art technology and are 100% customized to the shape of your teeth and to your dental condition. With Incognito, you get efficient, effective tooth movement and great aesthetics. For more information, see our Incognito page.


"Fast Braces" and "6-Month Smiles"

"Fast Braces and "6-Month Smiles" are orthodontic systems, offered by two unrelated companies using different systems, that are advertised and marketed by the respective companies and the dentists that use them as special braces capable of shortening treatment time. These systems are primarily marketed and utilized by general dentists who lack the formal orthodontic training of 2-3 years after dental school to learn how to properly straighten teeth, which is required to be  an orthodontist. Rate of tooth movement is primarily limited by biologic processes. Research has shown that promises like this of faster treatment are unproven and are primarily marketing gimmicks used by non-orthodontists.

Always choose a real orthodontist and one who is BOARD-CERTIFIED by the American Board of Orthodontics. (americanboardortho.com) For further details on ways to properly reduce your treatment time, please contact our office.
