At Harnick Orthodontics in Albuquerque, we offer a variety of different treatment options to fit your needs and your lifestyle. Below is a breakdown of the options available to you. Dr. Harnick and our team will discuss the options with you during your initial consultation to determine the best fit for you.
Metal braces are still the most widely used among our child and teen patients. Our modern brackets are much smaller and less noticeable than braces of the past. Our patients love choosing different color ligature ties!
Ceramic braces are the same size and shape as metal braces, except they have tooth-colored or clear brackets that blend with your teeth. These braces are less noticeable than traditional metal braces so they are often chosen by our adult patients who want to minimize the appearance of braces.
Invisalign consists of a series of custom-made, removable clear aligners that gradually shift your teeth into the desired position. Dr. Harnick is a VIP Diamond Provider of Invisalign which means he is in the top 1% of all providers of Invisalign in North America! He has treated a variety of conditions successfully using Invisalign. Because they are nearly invisible, this is a popular option among our teen and adult patients. No one will even know you’re straightening your teeth!
