Serving Western North Carolina with Affordable Adult Braces Options

There are more options than ever to get a more comfortable and long-lasting alignment. Nearly 1/4 of braces wearers are adults who want to change their alignment. Many adults who are interested in braces are afraid of how it will fit into their life. Thanks to recent innovations in orthodontic technology, braces have come a long way since the awkward, bulky appliances most people remember from their youth.

Contemporary braces options like Invisalign® and Damon System Braces® offer more freedom and are easy-to-maintain. At Black Orthodontics, we are proud to offer some of the most comfortable and forward-thinking treatment options.


Invisalign’s durable and discrete aligners have completely changed the orthodontic experience.  Many people report seeing an improved smile in as little as four to six weeks. All you need to do is wear your aligners 20-22 hours every day. Invisalign aligners are made using a thin and transparent material that camouflages into your mouth. You won’t have to interrupt your life because you’ll only need to do a progress evaluation every 10-16 weeks. Plus, you can complete many appointments virtually, meaning you won’t even need to come into our Asheville office!

Damon System Braces

Damon System braces use a self-ligating bracket that holds an archwire in place rather than using elastic ties. Because the bracket is self-ligating, you don’t need tightening, resulting in less overall friction throughout treatment. A passive self-ligating system secures itself, so you’ll need less in-person visits during your alignment. Damon System Braces are excellent alternatives to surgery, palate expanders, tooth extractions, or headgear.

What Are The Benefits of Adult Braces?

Investing in your smile is always a smart decision. Achieving a symmetrical alignment will refresh your outlook and boost your self-confidence. But it will also promote the longevity of your smile. Smiles with crowded teeth are more likely to develop gum disease or tooth decay. Teeth that are out of alignment put extra pressure on your head and cause chronic migraines and jaw pain.

Uniform teeth are healthy teeth. It’s easier to keep teeth clean when they conform to a natural pattern. Eliminating crowded areas helps promote more effective brushing and flossing. By aligning your teeth, you are proactively preventing long term health complications that may cost you more money than an alignment down the road.
