Braces in South Bend, IN

Dental braces are available in South Bend. Braces move teeth or adjust underlying bone. Retainers may also be necessary after dental braces are placed, especially for adults. If you have misaligned teeth, our dentists will discuss your goals with you and develop a plan that will straighten your teeth, aid in chewing, and create facial balance. We’ll explain the pros and cons of all your options, including clear braces and other types of cosmetic dentistry, such as veneers.
