For a more discreet look Levens Orthodontics is proud to present Sapphire braces. Unlike many “tooth colored” braces our choice is truly clear braces for your smile. Our transparent sapphire braces take on your natural tooth color because they are truly clear. And because these man-made sapphire braces are milled from one crystal there is no porosity in the material. You never have to worry about your braces staining. Only your closest confidents know you are wearing braces. The superior strength of the sapphire crystal also means they are low-profile and smaller than most clear braces for your comfort.

There are no compromises in how these esthetic braces work compared to traditional braces. Strength, comfort and effectiveness all add up to one clear choice for your treatment—the clear sapphire choice!
