• Charlottesville & Zion Crossroads braces for all ages

    At Charlottesville Orthodontics, our family orthodontists, Dr. Weis and Dr. Patel, understand that each patient is different. Each patient has a unique orthodontic situation and lifestyle, so certain types of orthodontic treatment may be better than others. That is why we offer several types of braces for kids, teens and adults at our Charlottesville Downtown, Hollymead, and Zion Crossroads orthodontist offices. We want you to receive an orthodontic treatment that will yield the best results for your smile and make your treatment process as comfortable as possible.

Types of braces

Metal braces

These are the standard, traditional braces seen on most patients undergoing orthodontic treatment. Made of stainless steel, modern dental braces are now smaller and lighter than ever. They also offer customized options like having colored elastic ties on the metal brackets.

Metal braces are a practical orthodontic treatment option for children, teenagers, and adults. Learn more by scheduling a free orthodontic consultation with us today.

Clear braces

Made of ceramic, clear braces are our most popular braces for adults due to their translucent cosmetic appeal. Clear braces can handle many of the same orthodontic issues as metal braces and are a popular option for adults or teens who may not be candidates for Invisalign clear aligners but still want a more discreet braces option.

Our office proudly provides clear braces near you in Charlottesville and Zion Crossroads. Schedule your free consultation today to learn more.


The Invisalign® system is a series of clear, plastic overlay templates – called clear aligners – customized just for you. Invisalign is a form of orthodontic treatment made for those wanting a discreet and flexible way to straighten teeth. Popular with teens and adults, Invisalign clear aligners are removable and don’t require as many appointments to our office as traditional braces.

We also have a state-of-the-art digital scanner, so long gone are the days of taking messy impressions or molds of your teeth! Your Charlottesville orthodontist will create a computer simulation using your scan to design an Invisalign treatment plan that gradually moves your teeth to the desired position. Schedule a free consultation today.

Lingual braces

Lingual braces, also called invisible braces, are the most unnoticeable braces option available. Lingual braces sit on the inside of the teeth where they can not be seen by others, as opposed to traditional braces, which sit on the outside of your teeth.

These behind-the-teeth braces do not work for all orthodontic issues. The best way to discover if you’re a candidate for lingual braces is by booking your free orthodontic consultation at Charlottesville Orthodontics.

Iconix Aesthetic Braces

We are excited to announce we now offer Iconix Aesthetic Braces. Iconix braces provide the durability of stainless steel braces with the aesthetics of “white” gold braces, which some call a “champagne” color. A smooth zirconia finish guarantees the color will not peel or brush away. Iconix offers a pleasing cosmetic system with no change in the standard braces technique and can treat most orthodontic issues. Get started on the road to a straighter smile with Iconix gold braces in Charlottesville today!
