Smiles in Progress

There's a Perfect Fit for the Perfect Smile

We offer a variety of orthodontic treatment options to get you and your family smiling in no time! Depending on your condition and personal preferences, you may be able to choose between metal or clear braces.

Metal Braces

Metal braces are the most widely used type of braces. They are strong and can withstand most types of treatment. Using SureSmile’s advanced braces technology, your treatment will be precise to provide a fast and successful treatment outcome.

What are Metal Braces?

Traditional metal braces use a series of brackets that are attached to each teeth in a patient’s mouth, that are then connected together via metal wires. The tightness of the wire is what ultimately pulls the teeth into their designated positions over time. Metal braces are an incredibly straightforward system and, as a result, are one of the most effective ways to correct certain dental-related issues available on the market today.

How does SureSmile technology improve each treatment?

SureSmile technology allows your orthodontist to take precise 3D scans of your teeth, which are then used to create virtual molds. With this type of information, your orthodontist can literally plan out the movement and angles of each tooth over time – thus creating a treatment option that is far more precise and that gets even more effective as time goes on.

What is treatment like with Metal Braces?

When you have metal braces, there are certainly some foods you’ll want to avoid. These include anything that is particularly hard, sticky or chewy.

What is typical treatment length with Metal Braces?

Most people wear metal braces for about two years.

How much do Metal Braces cost?

One of the first questions we receive is ‘how much will braces cost?’ While the cost of orthodontic treatment varies depending on each patient’s condition, we are ready to help you find a plan that can fit your budget and needs. We will work with you so that you know what to expect before beginning treatment. For your convenience, we accept most major credit cards and insurance plans.

Clear Braces

Clear braces are usually made out of some form of ceramic material and, as a result, are far more discreet than other types of treatment options that are available.

Clear braces operate in much the same way as traditional braces – meaning that brackets gradually move your teeth into their desired position over a long period of time.

Why Clear Braces?

Clear braces are usually made out of some form of ceramic material and, as a result, are far more discreet than other types of treatment options that are available.

What is a typical treatment experience with Clear Braces?

The typical treatment experience with clear braces is usually one that is more comfortable than traditional metal braces, largely due to the construction of the brackets themselves. You don’t have to deal with a mouth filled with metal for an indefinite period of time and because the braces are so discreet, most people probably won’t even realize you’re wearing them at all.

What is the typical treatment length with Clear Braces?

Again, the typical treatment length will vary depending on a number of personal considerations – but most people can expect to be in them for about two years, give or take.

How much do Clear Braces cost?

Overall, clear braces work out to be roughly the same cost as traditional braces. While the cost of orthodontic treatment varies depending on each patient’s condition, we are ready to help you find a plan that can fit your budget and needs. We will work with you so that you know what to expect before beginning treatment. For your convenience, we accept most major credit cards and insurance plans.

Lingual Braces

Lingual braces are very similar to traditional metal braces – but the brackets are placed on the tongue-side of the teeth. This type of braces is far less visible than traditional braces.

What is a typical treatment experience with Lingual Braces?

The typical treatment experience with lingual braces is similar to traditional metal braces. A patient with lingual braces is more likely to experience tongue pain due to the position of the brackets. Depending on the patient’s specific needs, lingual braces are not always available to all patients.

What is the treatment length with Lingual Braces?

The treatment length will vary depending on a number of personal considerations – but most people can expect to be in them for about two years, give or take.

How much do Lingual Braces cost?

Overall, lingual braces tend to be a little more expensive than traditional braces. While the cost of orthodontic treatment varies depending on each patient’s condition, we are ready to help you find a plan that can fit your budget and needs. We will work with you so that you know what to expect before beginning treatment. For your convenience, we accept most major credit cards and insurance plans.
