Coloured Braces - You’ve embraced the idea that you’re going to have braces the next couple of years. In fact, now you want to have a little fun with them. Why not try some colour?
Lingual Braces - The iBraces™ system braces are completely customized for each patient. They are placed on the back side of your teeth, making them completely hidden from view. No one will know you’re wearing Lingual braces, unless you tell them!
Invisalign® Teen - Invisalign straightens your teeth without wires and brackets, using a series of clear, customized, removable appliances called aligners. It’s virtually undetectable, which means hardly anyone will know that you’re straightening your teeth.
