Treatment Options

We offer several different treatment options based on affordability and aesthetic considerations.

Invisalign

Invisalign® is a series of custom-made aligners that are created just for you and are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you simply wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements Dr. Joe plans out for you. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You simply place in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks until your treatment is complete and you achieve the confident smile that you've always wanted. The best part about the whole process is that most people won't even know you're straightening your teeth.

Invisalign Teen

Invisalign® Teen is a custom Invisalign® system designed for the dental needs of teenagers. Teens can now straighten their teeth with a series of clear, removable aligners. There are no metal wires or brackets, and teens can still eat and drink what they want. Invisalign® Teen is the easy, comfortable way to straighten teeth without anyone knowing!

Metal Braces

Metal braces are the most widely used and most affordable system of straightening teeth. Tiny metal brackets are bonded to the teeth, and a wire is passed through the brackets and held in place with elastic ties. The ties can be metal colored for a discreet look or colorful, depending on what you like. Best of all, the elastic ties are changed each month during your visit, so you can choose different colors based on the season, a holiday, or even your mood!

Clear Braces

Clear braces are a great alternative for patients who want a more discreet or aesthetic alternative to metal braces and are not candidates for clear aligners such as Invisalign®. Clear braces work the same way as metal braces, but clear brackets are used instead of metal ones, so the braces blend in with the natural color of your teeth. Dr. Joe also uses tooth-colored wires for a near-invisible appearance.
