Advances in braces design and materials have enabled the development of several types of braces that are almost or completely invisible.  They include Invisalign®, Incognito™ and Harmony braces.  For those who opt for more traditional metal or ceramic braces, technology innovations have enabled the creation of lighter, smoother and more comfortable designs.  Of course, there are advantages and cost implications for each option, which can be discussed with Dr. Andolino.

Following are descriptions of the various types of braces available:


Imagine braces that don’t use wires or metal brackets, a treatment that is virtually pain free and doesn’t require you to change your eating habits or lifestyle. Invisalign® can straighten your teeth, and you can experience the benefits of a great smile, without having to deal with a mouth full of metal!
