Are you tired of your teeth being crooked? Do you want to smile and have everyone notice how perfect your teeth are instead of how uneven they are? Denise DiBona, DDS, LLC is committed to providing you with traditional and short-term orthodontics in Red Bank, NJ and the surrounding areas.

We understand that not everyone is born with straight teeth. We offer the solutions you need to ensure you have the straight, beautiful smile you have always desired. No one should have to live with crooked and misaligned teeth when they do not want to.

Traditional and Short-Term Orthodontic Options

Depending on your situation, we offer both traditional orthodontics and short-term orthodontics for a fast track to straighter teeth. These options include:

  • Traditional metal braces: use brackets and wires to move teeth into proper alignment and improve bite
  • Invisalign for adults and teens: use clear plastic aligners to gradually and discreetly straighten smile
  • Clear braces: function like metal braces but use clear or tooth-colored brackets and wires
  • Thermal NiTi (nickel titanium) straight wire braces: functional orthodontics that form to your mouth and improve your oral functions (eating and speaking)

Your Orthodontic Consultation

If you are in need of an orthodontic treatment, Dr. DiBona will discuss everything with you in detail. Before you settle on a treatment, we will take X-rays and examine your mouth, looking carefully at your teeth to determine the best action for you. At this time, Dr. DiBona will recommend a treatment type for you and discuss how long the treatment is estimated to take.

Traditional braces are typically recommended for younger teens. Although adults and teens can also wear traditional braces, Dr. DiBona usually recommends Invisalign, clear braces, Snap-On Smiles, or another option that best fits in with your lifestyle.

Invisalign for Adults and Teens

Invisalign is a great option for teens and adults who want to straighten their teeth without others noticing. Invisalign offers a clear solution to traditional metal braces and eliminates any type of self-conscious feelings you may have had with metal braces.

During the Invisalign treatment, you will have custom-made aligners that are shaped to fit your mouth perfectly. You will receive a series of comfortable plastic aligners to wear throughout the stages of your treatment. You will graduate to the next set of aligners every two weeks or so depending on your progress.

One of the best advantages of Invisalign is the ability to see your finished smile before you begin treatment. This is possible through the Invisalign Outcome Simulator. Invisalign technology also gives us an estimate of your treatment time, which typically takes 12–18 months.

Invisalign is a great option because it allows you to have freedom to remove the aligners when you need to, including when you eat and clean your teeth. If you are interested in Invisalign, please feel free to discuss your options with Dr. DiBona.
