Whether you participate in business meetings, social events, or family gatherings, you want to walk into a room with confidence and present yourself with your best smile. If you’re looking to improve your smile with the best orthodontist on the Upper West Side, you’ve come to the right place.

Our award-winning orthodontist has helped thousands of people reach their goals of achieving their ideal smile. He can fix crooked and protruding teeth, reduce the gaps between your teeth, or ensure proper alignment so that you have a healthy bite through a variety of treatment options including the ones below.


Braces have been around for a very long time and are the most common type of orthodontic treatment. Using brackets (attached with special orthodontic adhesive) and wires that fit into the brackets, the teeth are gradually pulled into the correct alignment. There are several types of braces available.

Metal Braces

Metal braces were the first type to be used and are a tried and true treatment. Over the years, the technology behind metal braces has changed dramatically, greatly improving both the comfort and the appearance of wearing metal braces.

Clear Braces

Clear braces are an option for people who choose braces but have concerns about their visibility on their teeth. With clear braces, the brackets on the front of the teeth are made of a tooth-colored ceramic that is specially selected to match your teeth. This makes clear braces dramatically less noticeable than metal braces.

Lingual Braces

Lingual braces are the ideal option for patients who want the most discreet orthodontic treatment available. With lingual braces, the metal brackets are placed on the back of the teeth, instead of the front. This makes them one of the least visible orthodontic treatment options.


When Invisalign was invented, it quickly became a popular orthodontic treatment because of its virtually unnoticeable appearance on your teeth. It is ideal for many people, especially adults, who are understandably concerned about the aesthetic effect of braces. Instead of brackets and wires, with Invisalign, the teeth are straightened using a set of clear plastic trays, which are called aligners. These are custom-molded to your teeth and every two weeks, you shift to a new aligner, with each one coming closer and closer to the desired alignment of your teeth. Because they are transparent, Invisalign aligners have almost no effect on your appearance.
