Types of Braces

These are the different types of braces available with our orthodontic treatment. Call to find out which option is best for your orthodontic needs. 

Traditional Braces

What most people think of when they hear the term “Braces”. Least expensive but most noticeable option.  However technology has made these much less bulky than in the past. 

Ceramic Braces

These are the same shape and size as traditional braces but are made of ceramic for clear or tooth colored brackets and are much less noticeable. A more expensive option than traditional braces. 


These are clear aligners worn all day and removed during meals. This avoids brackets or wires.. People find Invisalign much more comfortable than conventional braces and more compliant.

What Patients Are Saying

“I have confidence in Dr Snow and I love his bedside manner, he’s so friendly and relaxed. I think he does a great job of telling me what is going on, what they are doing, etc. I also love Cara, it’s always a joy to spend time with her. I don’t mind going to the dentist at all.”

Laura L.

“I am not a good patient because I am afraid of needles and drills, but they put me very much at ease. I will definitely return and recommend his practice to anyone and everyone that I can.”

Andrea R.

“I have been a patient of Dr. Snow’s for about 4 years now. I was very impressed with the quality of care given at each visit when I arrived. The hygienists were very through and did a great job cleaning my teeth. I am impressed with Dr. Snow and his office staff. He is the best dentist I have ever been to.”
