|Traditional Silver Braces
Braces are one of the most common orthodontic treatments available. While “traditional” makes these braces sound like they’ve been around for a while, they are actually more efficient than those used just ten years ago. They are smaller, more comfortable and more esthetic. Braces work to improve your smile by gently realigning your teeth. Braces consist of a system of metal brackets, wires, and bands. The brackets are attached to the front of your teeth and are connected to each other through the use of a wire and bands. The colored bands have become a cool and fun way to express your personality. As we adjust the wire, the braces guide your teeth to their ideal positions for your new, beautiful and healthy smile!
|Cosmetic Ceramic (Clear) Braces
Clear braces are a popular choice for adults and teens. They are the same color as your teeth for a more discreet orthodontic option. The ceramic braces work just like metal braces. Braces (metal or clear) correct orthodontic issues such as crowded teeth, gaps in teeth or spacing, misaligned teeth or problems with the bite, (crossbite, open bite, underbite and overbite). In addition, our ceramic braces are stain resistant, so you can smile with confidence!
Self-Ligating Braces are braces that do not need the color ties. This means that they do not have elastic or rubber bands connected to them (because the braces hold the wires by themselves!) Some people will benefit from these braces and will have reduced treatment times as a result. If these braces are right for you, Doctor Sionit will discuss them with you at your consultation. By using the latest technology in brackets and wires, our self ligating braces can help minimize irritation and discomfort to both lips and teeth. They also facilitate easier oral hygiene care for a healthier result.
|Incognito Hidden Braces
Incognito braces are 100% custom braces designed to fit the contours of your teeth and be completely out of view. Instead of putting the brackets on the front of the teeth like traditional braces, the brackets are fixed to the back of them on the lingual or tongue side. There is minimal discomfort and speech interference. If you can be treated with traditional braces, it is likely that you can be treated with Incognito Hidden Braces.
Invisalign is an effective treatment for many adults and teens. We provide each patient with a custom set of clear aligners using the latest 3D imaging technology, the iTero® digital scanning system. Periodically you will receive a new set of aligners and as you switch aligners your teeth will gradually and comfortably shift, resulting in a beautiful smile! 90% of Invisalign success begins with the diagnosis and workup the doctors customize for you; this is why seeing an orthodontic specialist is critical to achieving the optimal final result. Actual treatment times will depend on your particular case. However, Invisalign can be one of the most convenient and efficient ways to straighten your teeth. Dr. Sionit has over 15 years of experience with Invisalign, so she will be able to determine if this is the best treatment option for you.
