Leveraging Cutting-Edge Technology for Expert Orthodontic Treatment

At Lakewood Dental Arts, we combine the most advanced orthodontic technologies to create a personalized treatment plan for every patient. Modern braces are thinner, more attractive, and more comfortable than ever, and modern treatment alternatives mean you can achieve a straight smile virtually invisibly. We're proud to offer a wide range of orthodontic treatments, including:

Small Traditional Braces

Despite a plethora of alternatives, traditional metal braces remain the most popular orthodontic treatment we offer. That's because traditional braces provide a reliable, durable, and cost-effective treatment for almost any orthodontic condition. Composed of high-grade stainless steel, our traditional braces are up to 30% smaller than standard braces, providing a more comfortable and aesthetically appealing treatment that offers better stability and control for an improved orthodontic outcome.


Invisalign is a revolutionary alternative to traditional braces that straightens teeth without the use of metal brackets and wires. Instead of braces, Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners to straighten the teeth. These aligners fit directly onto the teeth, are virtually invisible when worn, and are easy to pop in and out for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. This means almost no one will know you're straightening your teeth, you can still enjoy your favorite foods, and maintaining oral hygiene is as easy as ever!

Clear Braces

Clear braces use the same technique as traditional braces, but the brackets are made from a transparent ceramic composite material. This means clear braces maintain the same durability and reliability of traditional braces, but offer a more discreet, aesthetically appealing solution.

3D Imaging Technology

We strive to incorporate cutting-edge technology into every aspect of our treatment process, and that starts with the evaluation. At Lakewood Dental Arts, we're proud to use advanced 3D imaging technologies that allow us to create a fully-realized digital model of your bite and smile without the need for impressions. This means we can create a more accurate model and treatment plan without needing to use gooey, uncomfortable putty during your evaluation.
