With any treatment route you take, the ultimate end result is the same: a beautiful new smile that makes you want to live life differently. Your Cool Braces smile will sell itself.

Traditional Metal Braces

Who says traditional braces aren’t cool? Made of high-grade, stainless steel material, metal braces use bracket-and-wire technology to guide the teeth into the ideal alignment.

Our wizard Dr. Tahir can treat almost any condition – from minor crookedness to complex bite misalignments – with metal braces.

Clear Ceramic Braces

Looking for a less noticeable treatment option? Clear braces use durable ceramic brackets that blend in with the natural color of the teeth. It’s like an invisibility cloak for braces.

Designed for comfort and durability, clear braces could be your perfect match.

SPEED Braces

SPEED braces help reduce treatment times, make for a less noticeable appearance, and fit more comfortably due to their considerably small size. These braces use an energy-storing component called a ‘Spring Clip’ that works like a computer chip inside your braces.

The Spring Clip is ‘programmed’ by Dr. Tahir – and the magic begins.

Damon® Self-ligating Braces (Metal and Ceramic)

Damon self-ligating braces are a cooler alternative to traditional braces. With a passive ‘clip’ mechanism that hinges brackets to the wires without the use of rubber bands, Damon braces are more hygienic, more comfortable and more efficient than traditional solutions. 

Choose Damon clear braces or metal braces for your glow-up.

SmartClip™ Self-Ligating Braces

Another option in self-ligating braces, SmartClip brackets use an “intelligent” clip mechanism that enhances comfort and improves the efficiency of treatment. That means fewer visits to our office (even though we wanna see your face, we know you’re busy.)

WildSmiles® Designer Brackets

WildSmiles designer braces make treatment more fun. Unique souls deserve unique treatment options! Choose from Disney-themed brackets, college sports team brackets and signature shapes (hearts, diamonds, flowers, footballs and more.)

Cool Invisalign® for All Ages

Admittedly, Invisalign clear aligners aren’t braces, but they still deserve a spot here. If you’re looking for a virtually-invisible, removable treatment option, you may want to consider the Invisalign system

Whichever treatment delivers ideal results (Dr. Tahir will guide you to the right treatment for your case) and makes you feel the coolest throughout your experience is the perfect option.



Your smile is a work of art. Let’s make you a magnet for life’s opportunities.
