Clear braces are made of ceramic material and are, therefore, less visible on your teeth than metal braces yet are also available with colored elastics. Ceramic braces are used with patients who have cosmetic concerns. With clear ties, they are visually less prominent, yet they do require more attention to oral hygiene.
Clear aligners are a series of invisible, removable, acrylic trays that straighten your teeth like braces. Aligners are tight when initially inserted and become more comfortable with extended wear. Aligners are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment, however, they require excellent wear to achieve the desired results.
Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces and are more comfortable today than ever before. Made of high-grade stainless steel, metal braces straighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires. With metal braces, you have the option of adding colored elastics (rubber bands) for a more unique and colorful smile.
"Dr. Cartier is a well qualified and passionate Orthodontist. She has attended top schools and is Board Certified, which few Orthodontists are. Being Board Certified indicates a willingness to go the extra mile to stay on top of all the latest procedures. Though education is very important, so is being committed to being the best that you can be in your field, and Dr. Cartier demonstrates this. Dr. Cartier has worked on both my children and the results are truly amazing. Dr. Cartier is clearly one of the most qualified and caring orthodontists, and I highly recommend her."

"As an adult I found myself needing braces. I inquired with friends to find a good orthodontist, and I received consistently positive recommendations for Dr. Michelle Cartier...in fact no other orthodontist was even mentioned. I scheduled a (free) consultation with her, after which I felt completely confident that she could correct the problems I was having. The results were fantastic. I am very happy I did it. The atmosphere of Dr. Cartier’s office is personable yet professional, and her effervescent personality made my orthodontic experience actually enjoyable. Since that time she has seen both of my children and given them beautiful smiles too."
