-Clear Aligners: Invisalign® is a system of clear aligners made of plastic-like materials that can snap on your teeth. They look like some styles of retainers. One favorite benefit is there is no food or drinks restriction because they come on and off with ease. These are also one of the least noticeable options when it comes to improving the alignment of your teeth.

-Ceramic braces: Ceramic braces are the fun style in the world of orthodontics. These braces are made of ceramic materials rather than metal, which means they can blend in with your teeth making them harder to see by others. Additionally, they can come in many colors for teens who love a good flare and splash of color in their life.

-Traditional braces: Metal wires and rubber bands make this style of braces easy spot. They work by using the materials to align your jaw into the ideal place. Traditional braces are proven to be reliable despite their less than fashionable appearance.
