smile arc protection
Our Smile Difference
Smile Arc Protection / Vertical Incisor Display is the placement of brackets that are placed closer to the gums than traditional brackets. This results in a beautiful, more natural, and aesthetic smile.
Three Secrets to the Best Smile
Smile Arc – Natural, aesthetic smiles tend to follow the contour of the lips. We’ll make it so the bottom edge of your upper teeth match the natural curve of your mouth.
Vertical Incisor Position (VIP) -This simply refers to the portion of your front teeth that are visible when you smile. Ideally, you’ll want to see your teeth in their entirety.
Smile Width – While we’re trying to show off as much of your individual teeth as possible, we’re maximizing the number of teeth that are visible when you smile.

How We Help
Digital orthodontics is the next revolution to the specialty and we are happy to offer digitally designed, custom brackets as well as Invisalign for faster, more efficient treatments with perfect results!
Braces have greatly improved over the years. We offer metal and ceramic braces to fit every lifestyle. Choose from effective and affordable metal braces as well as nearly invisible ceramic braces, which blend in with the teeth.
Clear aligners, such as Invisalign and Spark, fit over the teeth snugly, placing pressure in strategic ways. They are invisible when worn and can be removed for eating and drinking. They require fewer office visits for more convenience.
We offer a variety of other treatments including gummy smile treatment and gum recontouring so you can look and feel your best. Learn more and see if one of these options are right for you and your loved ones.
