Today you'll see your new smile for the first time.
How your teeth look.
Hopefully you've taken great care of your teeth while in treatment. Flossing and brushing will impact how good your teeth look when your braces come off. Stains, tartar and marks called decalcifications may show if you did a poor job.
Getting braces off consists of a few steps:
1. Removing your brackets. 2. Removing and cleaning glue from your teeth. 3. Some dental contouring and polishing may apply. 4. Getting fit for your new retainers.
We pride ourselves in making our debonding process comfortable for everyone.
Getting your retainer.
We customize retainer options and will help you decide on the combination best for you:
1. Clear Overlay (Essix or Vivera®)
2. Traditional Wire Type (Hawley or Wrap Around)
3. Fixed Lingual
Please ask us about our Peace of Mind and Retainers for Life (R4L) programs.
Amazing smiles must be maintained. Teeth have a tendency to move from ideal position. Good retainer habits will keep you smiling for life.

Great smile. Great lifestyle. Great benefits for you.
With crooked teeth increased dental plaque buildup is common. Bacterial proliferation between teeth increases potential for gum disease and can lead to heart problems. Straight teeth eases hygiene and can improve your health.
Your smile is one of the first things people notice when meeting you. A smile is a big part of making a first impression. A smiling face tells people that you’re positive, outgoing and worth getting to know.
Emotions are contagious. When you smile your brain releases endorphins and serotonin which improves mood and relieves stress. Smiling makes you feel better inside and appear more attractive to others.
