Dr. Griffin can discreetly straighten your smile and benefit your health.
Traditional braces remain the most common type of braces for orthodontic treatment. They are made from high-grade stainless steel, with small brackets attached to each tooth. Everything is linked with a thin archwire, which applies pressure on the teeth causing them to move slowly into the correct position.
Braces can be more effective in the treatment of overcrowding than any other method, and they are typically less expensive.
Ceramic braces are less noticeable but just as effective! They are similar to traditional braces in design and function. However, instead of being made out of metal, the brackets are made of transparent ceramic. This makes the braces less noticeable because they blend with your teeth’s natural color.
With this option, you can straighten your teeth without drawing attention to them during the process. It doesn’t matter if you have an important event coming up or if it’s another day at the office, you can smile, laugh, and talk freely. Ceramic braces are an excellent method for discreetly achieving the smile of your dreams!
Invisalign® moves your teeth into a better position in the same way traditional braces do. This system provides you with a more discreet look because the aligners are not made of metal. Instead, they are made of a clear, flexible material, and look like trays.
Each pair of custom-made aligners provides you with an ideal fit and full comfort at all times. Invisalign® clear aligners are completely removable, allowing you to enjoy your favorite foods and drink. Also, you are able to take them out for important occasions and you can floss and brush your teeth as normal.
