Types of Braces
Clear aligners, like Invisalign, are a way to straighten your teeth without the hassle of metal braces. Most people won’t even realize you’re wearing them. There are many types of clear aligners and Dr. Zahrowski will help find the appropriate clear aligner treatment to straighten your teeth and fit your budget. The process is simple. We scan an image of your teeth into our computer with a 3D laser, Dr. Zahrowski makes the appropriate adjustments, and you’ll have new clear aligners ready to start moving your teeth at your next appointment.
Traditional braces are the most common form of orthodontic treatment and allow the orthodontist to accomplish the most precise tooth movements. Braces today are made of stainless steel and are much smaller, making them more comfortable and attractive than ever before. We use the smallest braces that can effectively accomplish the desired tooth movement.
Clear or “ceramic” braces are much less visible than traditional braces. Clear braces at our office do not discolor and offer the same advanced, precise treatment capabilities of metal braces. The clear braces may cost a little more but can provide adults with an excellent result and the confidence to smile normally without showing off their braces.
