Why Should You Get Braces?


Braces offer a variety of benefits that help you achieve a smile that is healthy and beautiful


Healthy Smile

Straighter teeth and an aligned bite make it easier for you to keep a healthy smile. With straight teeth, you can more easily brush every surface of your teeth and properly floss between your teeth. Aligned bites also help you avoid dental problems, such as unnatural grinding or wear, cracked teeth and more.



A straighter smile is often associated with being more attractive and successful. In addition, a straighter smile can give you a healthier smile, which most people tend to feel more confident showing others.



Types of Braces


We offer several types of braces that work with your unique needs and personal preferences



Metal Braces

Metal braces are what most people think of when they think of braces. This type of braces uses metal brackets that attach to the front of your teeth and a wire that runs through the brackets. With today’s technology, the brackets are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive.


Ceramic Braces

Also known as clear braces, this type of braces works just like metal braces. However, instead of having metal brackets, the brackets are made of a clear material, which makes them less noticeable to others. This helps patients maintain a more natural look during their treatment. It is important to remember, however, that ceramic braces are more fragile and can become discolored between visits.


Lingual Braces

Lingual braces work like traditional braces, but the brackets are placed on the back side, or tongue side, of the teeth. This makes lingual braces virtually invisible to others while still producing the same results as traditional braces.
