A Plethora of Options

What comes to mind when you think about achieving your dream smile?

Your imagination may come up with endless possibilities, which is the best part of having many options to straighten your teeth. There is no universal approach to getting a smile that sparkles; only the results matter.

Are you wondering what option may be right for you? Your search ends here! Let's look at the various orthodontic appliances readily available for you at LVL Orthodontics.


BRIUS is the newest orthodontic treatment option offered at LVL Orthodontics. Truly invisible, BRIUS is what some would call "braces behind the teeth." While producing the same stunning smile, BRIUS works almost twice as quickly as conventional braces or aligners.

BRUIS is a suitable option for those looking to straighten their teeth behind the scenes, but it may not be the best option for those looking to correct an extreme overbite.

Traditional Braces

Traditionally, braces are the most common form of orthodontic treatment. They are typically used to correct bite issues, misaligned teeth, or tooth crowding. Commonly worn by preteens and teenagers, metal braces are usually installed for one to three years.

In addition to quick treatment times and customizable brackets, regular braces can be used for multiple types of orthodontic correction. Although traditional braces are relatively easy to clean after eating, they come with a few dietary restrictions, such as no hard or sticky foods.


The Invisalign system uses clear aligners to realign teeth. As the name suggests, these aligners are completely clear and unnoticeable to the naked eye. Invisalign is made of plastic and is typically most popular with adults wanting to correct their bite or straighten overcrowded or misaligned teeth.

Invisalign has a shorter treatment time and can be the most aesthetically pleasing option for those looking to brighten their smile; however, clear aligner trays have to be swapped out after a certain period as the bite and teeth adjust.

What's the Right Choice for You?

There are various things to consider when choosing an orthodontic treatment, from costs to visual looks. Whatever your end goal, we are here to help guide you and make recommendations to achieve your dream smile!
