How orthodontic treatment from your family dentists in Williamsburg, Virginia can give you an outstanding smile.


Have you been thinking about straightening your smile? If so, chances are you are wondering about your orthodontic options. The truth is, there are more orthodontic options for you to choose from than in the past. The family dentists at Williamsburg Family Dentistry in Williamsburg, Virginia offer a full range of orthodontic services to give you an outstanding smile.

You want your orthodontic treatment to be comfortable, discreet, and affordable. You also want to achieve a straight smile quickly. Consider these options to provide the benefits you are looking for:

Conventional metal braces, with metal brackets and wires; this treatment is what most people think of when they consider orthodontic treatment. It’s been used for decades with great results.

Ceramic braces, with tooth-colored brackets and wires; this treatment provides a discreet look and excellent results.

Lingual braces; these are brackets and wires which are attached to the back of your teeth, providing a discreet look and great results.

Another popular orthodontic option that doesn’t involve braces is Invisalign. The Invisalign system uses clear plastic trays called aligners, which you change at 2 week intervals until your treatment is complete in about 9 to 15 months. Invisalign offers a very discreet look and the convenience of being able to remove the trays to brush, floss, and to eat.

Orthodontic treatment offers many lifelong benefits. Consider that straight teeth are:

  • More attractive and appealing
  • Easier to keep clean with brushing and flossing
  • Less likely to chip or break because of tooth wear
  • Less stressful for your jaws because you will have an even bite

You and your smile deserve comfortable, discreet, and affordable orthodontic treatment and your dentist can help. To find out more about orthodontic treatment options, call the family dentists at Williamsburg Family Dentistry in Williamsburg, Virginia today.
