You've got treatment options.
We offer everything from braces that don’t need any tightening (self-ligating) to esthetic braces that almost disappear against your teeth.
Or you can choose Invisalign which allows us to improve your smile without braces.
At your initial consultation we are happy to discuss and show you all your options to find a solution that fits your look and your lifestyle.
Getting your braces on consists of a few steps:
1. Cleaning your teeth.
2. Bonding brackets to your teeth. This involves some dental glue and a cool curing laser.
3. Inserting archwires into brackets. Elastic ties of your color choice when needed.
You’ll be comfortable and relaxed throughout the process.

It's an exciting time. Unveiling your new look!
Today you'll see your new smile for the first time.
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

How your new smile lasts for a lifetime.
Now that your braces are off–smile and do these few things to maintain your smile for life.
Wear your retainers
as directed for as long as you want to keep your teeth straight.
Initially, you may
find it difficult to speak with your retainers in. Practice
speaking, reading or singing aloud to get used to them faster.
Always bring your
retainers to your appointments.
Daily clean retainers with toothbrush and Dawn® dish-soap or other anti-bacterial soap. It's okay to use warm but NO HOT water. Thoroughly rinse with water or mouthwash afterwards. This will remove tartar buildup and help eliminate odors.
Soak retainers weekly in Retainer Brite®, Efferdent® or mixture of 2 ounces distilled white vinegar and 6 ounces of water, but this DOES NOT take the place of brushing.
Retainers should ALWAYS be stored in their case and placed out of pets' reach. Pets love to chew on them!
Keep retainers away from hot water, car dashboards, pockets, washing machines, and napkins.
when swimming and playing sports.
Contact us if you have any questions or concerns about your retainers OR if you feel they need adjusting. Please DO NOT try to modify them yourself.
"Smile951 has been my family orthodontist for six plus years. Both my boys have beautiful teeth thanks to Dr. Pesh and his team. I have referred many of my friends & family to Smile951 and honestly I wouldn't go anywhere else. Dr. Pesh and his team are always courteous and professional to my boys and I.
