Teeth Straightening Treatments at Orthodontics of Santa Barbara

We offer a variety of treatment options to meet the needs of every patient we see at Orthodontics of Santa Barbara. Whether you need traditional braces or want to explore less visible teeth straightening options, we can help.

Invisalign Clear Braces

Invisalign clear braces are the nearly invisible treatment option for straightening your teeth. They're the practical option for adults and teenagers looking for the most discreet teeth straightening option that helps you maintain a natural-looking smile, while you receive treatment. Invisalign® clear aligners are comfortable and removable, as well, so they're perfect for anyone who wants to avoid some of the restrictions other treatments may require.

Clear Porcelain Brackets

Porcelain brackets are another form of clear or natural-tooth colored braces that make them nearly invisible, while being permanently affixed to your teeth until treatment has been completed. They're a great option for patients looking for a natural appearance, whatever their age.

They're strong, durable, and deliver fast results for adults, teenagers, and children.
