Invisalign Roxboro

Invisalign® & Invisalign for Teens

Unlike traditional braces, this kind of orthodontic treatment doesn’t rely on a system of metal or ceramic brackets and wires. The Invisalign system is made up of a series of custom clear trays called aligners that are removable and nearly invisible.

Dr. Smith and Dr. Heymann are Invisalign Elite Preferred Providers of Invisalign and only the top 5% of providers get to say this. That makes Smith & Heymann Orthodontics your leading Invisalign provider in Chapel Hill, Durham, Roxboro, and Mebane.

Damon Clear Braces

Sometimes known as clear braces, ceramic braces provide a less obvious treatment for our patients in Chapel Hill, Durham, Roxboro, and Mebane.

Ceramic braces use the same components as traditional braces, but instead of metal, the brackets on the front side of the teeth are made of see-through ceramic material.

Metal Braces & More

Many patients we treat at Smith & Heymann Orthodontics choose traditional metal braces to straighten their teeth. While metal braces are the most common type of orthodontic treatment, you have other options, too.

After your first free consultation, Smith & Heymann Orthodontics will talk to you about which treatment would be right for you based on your unique needs and smile goals.

Fixed Vs. Removable Appliances

At Smith & Heymann Orthodontics, we believe our patients should be educated on their treatment options.

It’s important to understand the difference between fixed and removable appliances. Fixed appliances, like braces, are attached to your teeth and aren’t taken off until you complete your treatment.

Removable appliances, like Invisalign’s aligner system, are worn about 20-22 hours a day but can be taken off easily. Besides the obvious differences, our doctors use Invisalign aligners to treat mild to moderate orthodontic problems.

At Smith & Heymann Orthodontics, we generally use fixed appliances for comprehensive and serious and treatment.
