Your Corning, NY Orthodontist Offers Multiple Types Of Braces

Dr. Melissa L. Brown and her team offer the following treatment options:

Metal Braces


Metal braces, made of high-grade stainless steel, are the most common type of treatment. Today’s metal braces are smaller and more comfortable than ever.

Clear Braces


These braces are made of a clear, ceramic material. Though they tend to be a bit more fragile, these tend to be very popular with adult patients who are looking for a more discreet alternative to metal braces.

Clarity™ Advanced Ceramic Braces


This innovative system of braces features small translucent brackets that are virtually invisible, so you won’t have to worry about matching your bracket color to the shade of your teeth. They are also extremely comfortable and durable, allowing you to correct your smile while looking and feeling your best.

Invisalign® and Invisalign® Teen


The Invisalign System is a series of clear aligners that are custom-made to fit your teeth. These removable trays gradually move the teeth into the desired location, no metal or wires involved! Invisalign is available to teens and adult patients, based on their orthodontic needs. Ask us if you are eligible for the Invisalign System!
