Treatments that Fit your Lifestyle

We offer a wide selection of treatments to meet the individual needs and desires of each of our adult patients. Not only do we offer traditional metal braces, we also offer Clarity™ clear braces and Invisalign clear removable aligners. Clarity™ clear braces are the clear alternative to metal braces, but they offer the same benefits. They are an ideal treatment option for those cosmetically minded adult patients who desire the strength of braces without the metal look.

Invisalign works without the use of any brackets or wires. Instead, the Invisalign system consists of a series of clear aligners that you wear over your teeth for a couple of weeks at a time. These aligners are completely translucent and virtually invisible and will slowly move your teeth into their new, straight positions. With Invisalign, you can perfect your smile discreetly while still maintaining your pearly white smile.
