Types of Braces

We provide our patients with affordable and superior orthodontic care in Garden City, NY as well as the surrounding areas, including Hempstead, Franklin Square, and Mineola. We Are Proud To Offer Many Types Of Braces Including Damon Braces, Ceramic Braces, & Invisalign®. Dr. Susan Tierney uses the most comfortable, effective, and advanced braces available. Please read below to learn more about each type.

  • Clear Ceramic Braces Ceramic braces are made of translucent (clear) material. They are most popular with adult patients, due to their cosmetic appeal. The only drawbacks to ceramic brackets are that they are more fragile, and the elastic ties can discolor between orthodontic visits.
  • Damon Braces: No elastic or steel ties are used with the Damon System. This technology creates less friction and results in greater comfort for the patient. The Damon Braces System reduces both treatment time and the number of adjustments that are usually performed.


  • Invisalign®: The Invisalign System® is a series of clear overlay templates—called aligners—that have been generated by computer simulation to gradually move the teeth. This system is available to adult patients with certain orthodontic bite problems. Ask us if you are a candidate for the Invisalign system®.
