Other Types of Braces
Lingual braces that are hidden behind your teeth. They are customized to fit the shape of your teeth perfectly. Since they are behind the shape of your teeth, they are difficult to see from the casual observer.
Made from the same material as traditional metal, but don’t require the use of rubber-bands and wires. Instead, they use a specialized clip that holds your teeth in place.
Invisalign Clear Braces
Sets of Invisalign clear aligners that are comfortable and removable. They are made from plastic trays and are customized to mold to the shape of your smile.
Damon braces are designed to be discreet, comfortable and easy to keep clean. Dr. Jacquie Smiles offers her patients in NYC with Damon braces. The Damon System is not just about revolutionary braces and wires, it’s a whole new way of treating patients.
MTM® Clear Aligner is the virtually undetectable way to align your smile without traditional braces. MTM Clear Aligner uses clear, removable aligners to correct slight misalignments (such as crowding or gaps). “MTM” stands for “Minor Tooth Movement” – a process for aligning upper and/or lower teeth requiring minimal movement.
