Traditional Metal Braces
Our doctors utilizes the most advanced low profile bracket technology with shape-memory, super-elastic wires. Unlike older braces and stiffer wires these advanced appliances provide patients with faster and more comfortable treatment that require less frequent adjustments.
The new generation metal braces are designed with patients’ comfort in mind. Our brackets have smooth edges and a lower profile design so they do not interfere with the lips & cheeks. In addition, these braces are easier to brush and floss with so patients can maintain a cleaner look and healthier smile throughout their treatment.
Invisalign Clear Aligners
After more than 20 years in research, Invisalign developed the most advanced clear aligner as a discreet alternative to traditional braces. Instead of wires and brackets, Invisalign clear aligners relay on innovative technology and materials to gently align your teeth.
Invisalign a series of clear, removable trays (called “Aligners”) that move your teeth as you sequence from one to the next every 10-14 days. This process is monitored throughout treatment by the doctor to insure movement is taking place safely and accurately.
The Aligners are removable and highly aesthetic which makes them a great option for adults and teens. Oral hygiene is also less of a hassle since they are removed for eating, drinking, brushing .
Each set of Aligners are custom made for each patient and with our 3D AI software we can show you how your final smile alignment will look before you begin treatment.
Invisible Ceramic and Clear Braces
Clear braces are made of ceramic and are less visible on your teeth than metal braces.
A common concerned about clear braces is that they stain over time. Dr. Kuper-Smith use the highest quality ceramic braces that ensure that your brackets remain clear and your teeth look clean throughout treatment.
There is also no differences in treatment with ceramic braces vs. metal braces. They move teeth the same way and take the same amount of time.
