We also offer orthodontic treatment in the form of a retainer, most often recommended after braces have come off or to provide very minor orthodontic adjustments.

We offer the following orthodontic systems at our Smithtown, NY dental office:

Retainers: A Useful & Limited Orthodontic Option

A retainer is a removable or fixed orthodontic appliance that, compared to traditional braces, applies a reduced amount of pressure on the teeth to maintain an aligned smile. Retainers are typically only worn for a portion of the day, and their useful applications are often limited to retaining your smile results following orthodontic treatment.

After we examine your mouth, we will be able to make an informed diagnosis that will lead to the right treatment plan for you. If a retainer can fix your orthodontic concern in a way that will save you time and money, we will be happy to recommend it as an option!

Invisalign: A Discreet Alternative to Braces

Invisalign clear braces are an excellent teeth-straightening option for both teens and adults. Most patients prefer clear braces over metal braces due to their ease of use and ability to remove the appliance during meals. Instead of using uncomfortable metal brackets and wires to the teeth, the Invisalign system allows us to custom-fit your smile with thin, clear, plastic trays designed to wear throughout the day and night. The clear aligner trays will gently push your teeth into the correct position. Throughout the duration of your treatment, you will switch the aligners out for a new one that continues the progression of smile-straightening treatment.

The Center for Cosmetic Dentistry is proud to offer the top Invisalign clear braces services near Smithtown, NY and beyond, because ours are delivered by Dr. Shapiro and Dr. Palmieri, Invisalign preferred providers. Their training and expertise have qualified them to provide a wide selection of treatment options, including accelerated Invisalign services that can cut your treatment time in half!
