The Original


The traditional method of creating a beautiful smile now has new offerings – clear, gold or silver brackets.

About Braces

Braces (sometimes called brackets) are the tried-and-true appliances of the orthodontist. They can be used from very simple to extremely complex cases and can be made out of traditional metal or ceramic materials (clear braces). Braces are a great choice for any treatment.
