Braces We Offer
We believe that it is important to educate our patients on all of their options, which is why we have taken the time to lay out our different braces options below. Should you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out!
Clear Ceramic Braces
LightForce braces use clear or transparent 3D-printed brackets so while they are just as effective as metal braces, they are much less noticeable.
Using state-of-the-art technology, Damon braces are able to give you a broader, more healthy smile all while putting less pressure on your teeth.
Braces are made up of 2 important parts: the bracket and the archwire. We will attach brackets to each of your teeth, and use the archwires throughout your treatment to gently position your teeth into a more preferred position.
While the beginning of your braces treatment can result in some uncomfortableness, it definitely doesn’t hurt! A little bit of over the counter tylenol or ibuprofen will knock any soreness you might have out.
We believe that getting the smile of your dreams shouldn’t result in stress, which is why we offer flexible payment plans. We will go over the cost of treatment in your complimentary consultation!
There are a couple of food restrictions when you have braces. Once you start treatment, Dr. Heinz will review all restrictions with you.
We recommend brushing after every meal, or three times a day, in order to keep your teeth and gums healthy!
Yes, you definitely do! Your dentist will ensure that your teeth and gums are staying healthy during your orthodontic treatment.
