Read on to learn more about our braces services and how we can help you achieve a healthier, more beautiful smile.

Types of Braces:

At Hills Dental Studio, we offer two types of braces: Invisalign braces and ceramic braces. Each type of braces has its unique features and benefits, and we’ll help you determine which one is the best fit for your needs.

Invisalign Braces:

Invisalign braces are a popular choice for adults and teens who want to straighten their teeth discreetly.

Instead of traditional metal brackets and wires, Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually shift teeth into place. 

Here are some of the benefits of Invisalign braces:

  • Virtually invisible: Invisalign aligners are made of clear plastic, making them almost invisible when worn.
  • Comfortable: Invisalign aligners are custom-made to fit your teeth, making them more comfortable than traditional braces.
  • Removable: You can remove your Invisalign aligners when you eat, brush, and floss, making it easier to maintain good oral hygiene.
  • Effective: Invisalign can treat a wide range of orthodontic issues, including crowding, spacing, overbites, underbites, and crossbites.

Ceramic Braces:

Ceramic braces work similarly to traditional metal braces, but the brackets are made of tooth-colored ceramic material instead of metal. This makes them less noticeable and more aesthetically pleasing. 

Here are some of the benefits of ceramic braces:

  • Discreet: Ceramic braces are less noticeable than metal braces, making them a popular choice for adults and teens.
  • Durable: Ceramic braces are strong and resistant to staining, so they won’t discolor over time.
  • Effective: Ceramic braces can treat a wide range of orthodontic issues, just like metal braces.
  • Smaller brackets: The brackets used for ceramic braces are smaller than traditional metal brackets, making them more comfortable to wear.

At Hills Dental Studio, we’ll work with you to determine which type of braces is right for your unique needs and lifestyle. Contact us to schedule a consultation and learn more about our orthodontic services.

Treatment Process:

At Hills Dental Studio, we understand that starting orthodontic treatment can be an exciting but daunting process. 

Our experienced team of orthodontists is here to guide you through every step of your treatment, from your initial consultation to the final results. Here’s what you can expect during your braces treatment:

Initial Consultation:

During your initial consultation, we’ll perform a thorough examination of your teeth and gums, take X-rays and photos of your mouth, and discuss your orthodontic goals and concerns. 

Based on this information, we’ll recommend the best type of braces for your needs and create a customized treatment plan.

Braces Placement:

Once you’ve decided on the type of braces you want, we’ll schedule an appointment to place your braces. The process of placing braces typically takes about 1-2 hours and is a painless procedure.

 We’ll clean your teeth, apply bonding adhesive to your teeth, and attach the brackets to your teeth. Once the brackets are in place, we’ll thread the archwire through them and secure it with elastic bands.


After your braces are placed, you’ll need to come in for periodic adjustments to ensure that your teeth are moving according to the treatment plan. 

During these appointments, we’ll replace the archwire, adjust the elastic bands, and make any other necessary changes to your braces. These appointments typically last 30-60 minutes and are scheduled every 4-8 weeks.

Completion of Treatment:

Once your treatment is complete, we’ll remove your braces and provide you with a retainer to help maintain your new smile. 

The retainer will need to be worn for a certain period of time each day to ensure that your teeth remain in their new positions.

At Hills Dental Studio, we’re committed to providing our patients with exceptional orthodontic care. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and learn more about how we can help you achieve the smile of your dreams.

Cost and Financing:

At Hills Dental Studio, we believe that everyone deserves a beautiful, healthy smile. We offer competitive pricing for our orthodontic treatments, including braces. The cost of braces can vary depending on several factors, such as the type of braces and the length of treatment.

Factors Affecting the Cost of Braces:

  • Type of braces: The cost of ceramic braces or Invisalign may be higher than traditional metal braces.
  • Length of treatment: The longer the treatment, the higher the cost.
  • Additional treatments: In some cases, additional treatments such as tooth extraction or jaw surgery may be required, which can increase the overall cost.

During your initial consultation, we’ll provide you with a comprehensive treatment plan that includes a breakdown of the total cost of your braces treatment.

Financing Options:

At Hills Dental Studio, we understand that orthodontic treatment can be a significant investment. That’s why we offer financing options to help you afford the cost of braces. We work with various financing companies to provide our patients with flexible payment plans and low-interest rates.

Here are some of the financing options that may be available to you:

  • Payment plans: We offer flexible payment plans that allow you to spread the cost of your braces treatment over several months.
  • Dental financing companies: We work with dental financing companies that offer low-interest rates and flexible payment options.
  • Insurance: Depending on your insurance plan, orthodontic treatment may be covered partially or in full.

Our team will work with you to determine the best financing option for your needs and budget.


At Hills Dental Studio, we’re committed to providing our patients with the highest quality orthodontic care.

Our experienced team of orthodontists is dedicated to helping you achieve a healthy, beautiful smile that you can be proud of.

I went to Hills Dental Studio earlier today to remove my wisdom tooth. Dr Craig assisted me. I was very nervous but Dr Craig communicated with me throughout the procedure to ensure I was still comfortable and not in pain. This helped me relax. Thank you Dr Craig for your kind and professional service. I will definitely be recommending Hills Dental Studio to everyone I know.
