Metal Braces 2.0

Metal braces have been a mainstay in orthodontics for years, but they’re not stuck in the past for a second. At Westfall Orthodontics, Dr. Westfall is excited to offer the latest smaller, sleeker, and more efficient versions than ever before. 


So, what makes these new metal braces so unique? 


  • Affordability: One of the biggest perks is the cost. Metal braces are often the most budget-friendly option, making them popular for families.
  • Strength: These braces are built to last. They’re incredibly durable and can tackle many dental issues, from simple to complex.
  • Customization: Want to add a splash of personality to your smile? Modern metal braces allow for colorful bands, allowing you to express yourself while your teeth get in line.


The advancements in metal braces mean you can maintain the balance. You get the reliability and effectiveness that metal braces are known for, but with added comfort and style. Whether you’re a teen eager to show off your school colors or an adult looking for a tried-and-true method, metal braces offer a fantastic solution.

The Low-Key Magic of Clear Braces

Clear braces might be your perfect match if you’re looking for a more discreet way to straighten your teeth. At Westfall Orthodontics, Dr. Westfall offers this subtle yet effective option to our friends in Richlands, Abingdon, and Bristol.


So, why are people falling for clear braces? Here are some top reasons:

  • Blends Right In: The biggest draw of clear braces is how they seamlessly blend with your teeth. They’re made of materials that mimic the color of your enamel, making them less noticeable.
  • Strong but Subtle: Don’t let their delicate appearance fool you. Clear braces are almost as sturdy as their metal counterparts. They can handle a variety of dental issues without drawing attention.
  • Comfort: The materials used for clear braces are often softer on your cheeks and gums, reducing irritation and making the adjustment period easier.


Clear braces offer a fantastic middle ground. You get the effectiveness of traditional braces without the metallic look. It’s like having the best of both worlds—strength and subtlety. Clear braces are a compelling choice for those who want to keep their orthodontic journey low. Dr. Westfall and our team at Westfall Orthodontics are eager to help you explore this option. We’re committed to giving you the insights you need to make an informed decision about your smile.

Invisalign: The Freedom to Smile

Invisalign is the go-to for those who crave flexibility in their orthodontic treatment. Dr. Westfall and the team at Westfall Orthodontics are thrilled to offer this innovative option to our communities in Richlands, Abingdon, and Bristol.


So, what’s the buzz about Invisalign? Let’s break it down:

  • Eat What You Want: With Invisalign, no food restrictions exist. Just take the aligners out and enjoy your favorite meals and snacks.
  • Easy Cleaning: Maintaining good oral hygiene is a breeze. Just like when you eat, you can take the aligners out. This way, you can make brushing and flossing your teeth easier than usual.
  • Quick Progress: Invisalign aligners are changed every few weeks. Why does that matter? You’ll see faster improvements than traditional braces.


Dr. Westfall designs your Invisalign aligners to fit your teeth, providing a comfortable and virtually invisible treatment experience. They’re trendy among adults and teens who want to perfect their teeth without the look of traditional braces.

If you value convenience and discretion, Invisalign could be your ideal choice. Dr. Westfall and our dedicated team at Westfall Orthodontics are here to guide you through the process. We aim to provide all the information you need to decide whether Invisalign fits your smile journey.
