Straighten Your Smile with Invisible Incognito™ or Invisalign® Braces

by Karin Grinbaum

Two different kinds of state-of-the-art invisible braces help meet your individual needs


This is the only 100% invisible, fixed-braces system available. Unique, precision and comfortable Incognito braces are made from real gold. A fixed appliance that goes behind the teeth, these are best known as hidden or lingual braces. They are placed on the tongue side of the teeth, using technology that custom-fits the system behind each tooth. 

  • Suitable for all ages
  • Reduces treatment time
  • Maintains your appearance during treatment
  • Can’t be lost or misplaced
  • Ideal for allergy sufferers
  • Treats the most complex cases

Smiles + Grins Orthodontics is a center of excellence Incognito™ provider.


Invisalign replaces wires and brackets with a series of barely detectable plastic, removable and comfortable aligners. These clear retainer braces move your teeth to the desired position — week by week and millimeter by millimeter.

  • Particularly suitable for adults and most teenagers
  • Less visible than traditional metal braces
  • Eat and drink what you like during treatment
  • Hassle-free brushing and flossing
  • Removable for job interviews, eating, etc.
  • 3-D technology ensures each aligner fits snugly over your teeth
