Clear Braces

Straighten Your Smile!

Many older patients shy away from traditional orthodontic treatment, and it’s not hard to understand why – after all, noticeable wires and brackets can mar an otherwise polished, professional image. That’s why Dr. Prentice offers a worthwhile alternative here at Ponderosa Dental Center: Invisalign. Invisalign treatment uses clear, aesthetically pleasing aligners instead of the regular braces model, allowing patients to maintain their self-confidence while still beautifully correcting misaligned teeth and gaps.
