When you’re looking for braces, our team here at Shelley A Tretter DMD MS INC can help. Whether you’re an adult looking for a solution to straighten your teeth, or a teen considering clear braces or clear plastic aligners, we have the answers to help you make the best choice.

Traditional/Metal Braces
When people think of braces, this is what comes to mind. Traditional braces use metal wires and brackets attached to teeth to gently apply pressure to your teeth and shift them to where they need to be, giving you the smile you’ve dreamt of.

Ceramic Braces
Ceramic braces are similar to traditional braces but instead of metal brackets and wires, the brackets and wires are tooth-colored and natural looking.

Invisalign®-Style Braces
Probably the most popular option for adults, Invisalign-style braces use a series of clear, plastic aligners that slowly move your teeth into place. The aligners can be removed for eating, drinking, and brushing, and are clear, so most people will never know you’re straightening your smile.

Lingual Braces
Lingual braces are the same as traditional braces but instead of having the appliance glued to the outside of your teeth, lingual braces are glued to the inside of your teeth.
