Metal brackets are the standard type used by most orthodontists. These are socially well accepted among young and adolescent patients and tend to be a rite of passage for most teens. Our metal brackets are made of high-grade stainless steel here in America.
These brackets are made of translucent material that blend well with your teeth. Anterior/Upper teeth are usually visible in a normal smile. For this reason, many of our patients choose to upgrade their braces to clear brackets on their upper teeth.
Invisalign is a series of aligners used to straighten your teeth without the need of brackets. Treatment with Invisalign is preferred by patients who desire the almost invisible nature of these aligners. Based on the diagnosis and treatment plan set forth by Dr. Martinez, Invisalign fabricates a series of custom made clear aligners just for you. Each aligner is worn for two weeks until the desired result is achieved. Invisalign does require full time wear. Often times, additional aligners are needed to achieve desired treatment outcomes. Invisalign works best with certain cases. If you are interested, we encourage you to ask Dr. Martinez during your complimentary consultation if Invisalign is right for you.

In Addition, the iTero scanner allows us to simulate your treatment outcome instantly.
