Invisalign® consists of a series of clear aligners that allow you to straighten your teeth in an inconspicuous way with little interference in your daily life. The best part about your whole journey is that most people won’t even know that you’re straightening your teeth.

Digital Orthodontics


We use Digital Indirect Bonding. Indirect bonding to digitally place brackets of several different kinds on patients’ teeth. This process works by taking a digital scan of a patient’s teeth and uploading it to a specialized software. From there, Dr. Shems will digitally place the brackets in a precise position and then 3D print a model of the patient’s teeth with the brackets in the correct position. Once this step is complete, a tray will be created to transfer brackets from the 3D printed model to the patient’s teeth.

Types of Braces

Treatment Options

We offer several treatment options ranging from 3 months to 2 years to best match your needs and to best guide you through your orthodontic journey. Whether Invisalign or braces best suites you, we are so excited to be by your side to help you achieve the smile of your dreams.
