For adults and teens that would like their smile to be straight, Invisalign is also an “invisible” option. For extreme or uncommon abnormalities Invisalign won’t work. Dr. Snow will suggest the best orthodontic treatment for each individual based on their oral situation.
After having braces fitted, your teeth with hurt – there is no getting around it. Over the counter pain medication should easily treat the pain and Dr. Snow will give you the best tricks-and-tips ensuring your discomfort is to a minimum.
Once your smile has transformed and your teeth are lined, your braces will then be removed. After having your braces removed Dr. Snow will fit your mouth with a retainer that will keep your teeth from moving back and misaligning. The retainer is prescribed to wear for a period of time then best practice is to wear the retainer at night.

We utilize CEREC® to provide our patients with same day restorative care. This saves time, money, and hassle by eliminating the need for multiple visits and temporary fillers.
Dr. Snow will remove the damaged section of your tooth, then take a three dimensional image of your tooth with the CEREC camera. The data transfers to a computer, from where we can design the filling or crown to be milled out of a ceramic block.
We use ceramic because it has proven to be durable and long-lasting. It also matches the color of teeth, providing you with a healthy, attractive smile.
