Lightforce braces

LightForce is a digital orthodontic system that uses customized 3D-printed braces for each patient, improving accuracy and reducing treatment time by up to 50%. The custom fit of the braces leads to shorter treatment periods and fewer office visits. They are also aesthetically pleasing and can make your band color stand out!

Self-ligating braces

Self-ligating braces are an innovative type of braces that use built-in clips instead of elastic color bands to hold the wire in place. This allows for more comfortable and efficient tooth movement, as the clips reduce friction and require lighter forces. Self-ligating braces can also require fewer appointments and can lead to shorter treatment times.

Spark Aligners

SPARK is the most recent, technologically-advanced, clear aligner system. It is locally made here in Southern California, so the turnaround time for your custom-created aligners is faster than ever. Like Invisalign, SPARK uses 3D technology to create their aligners, but they go the extra mile to trim and polish the edges to prevent irritation on the inside of lips and gums – a big plus for our patients. 

Invisalign Aligners

Invisalign is a clear aligner system that straightens the teeth discreetly without the hassle of metal braces. It is a popular option for straightening teeth because it is hardly noticeable, removable, more comfortable, and has no food restrictions. Using digital scanning, we will create a digital model of your teeth to show you a simulation of your new smile even before the treatment begins.
