Braces & Invisalign®

Traditional Metal Braces

Traditional silver or metal braces use bracket-and-wire technology to straighten teeth and align the jaw bones. These braces are made of high-grade stainless steel and are specially designed for comfort and durability!

Our experienced orthodontists can treat most conditions with metal braces. Treatment with metal braces may last anywhere from 12 to 24 months. Depending on your specific condition, treatment may last longer or shorter than average.

With traditional braces, you can customize your braces colors to match your style! Whether you prefer a funky rainbow style or a sleek monochromatic style, you get full creative freedom every time we replace your rubber bands.

Gold Braces

Interested in a more unique alternative to traditional braces? Gold braces function the same as traditional braces, are equally as effective as traditional braces—and add a little extra flair to your smile.


Gold braces are made of high-grade stainless steel brackets and archwires, coated in 24-karat gold. You can choose gold-colored elastics to complete your look with a discreet, monochromatic color scheme.

Clear Ceramic Braces

Clear ceramic braces are ideal for patients who want traditional braces, but prefer a more discreet option. These braces are made of durable ceramic materials that blend in with the natural color of the teeth.


Using ceramic brackets and transparent rubber bands, ceramic braces can be virtually undetectable when you’re laughing, smiling or speaking!


Because they function the same as traditional braces, ceramic braces can be used to treat almost any condition. Ceramic braces may take anywhere from 18 to 36 months to straighten the teeth and align the jaw bones.
