Getting Braces In Tucson

At Leber Ortho, our mission is to provide you with the best options for braces in Tucson and to help you Smile Big. We offer clear braces, metal braces, Invisalign and Invisalign Teen to help you fix your bite and Smile Big.

Why Get Braces

When making a decision about whether or not to undergo a braces treatment, we want you to feel as informed and empowered as you possibly can.

Creating a beautiful smile

For most people, a beautiful smile is the most obvious benefit of braces. At Leber Ortho our mission is to provide our patients with beautiful smiles and to see them Smile Big. When you meet with Dr. Eric Leber, he will take the time to get to know you so he can create a treatment plan that meets your individual needs. Don't worry - age is not an issue! If you are looking for braces for a child or braces for an adult, we can provide a dental plan to help you reach your goal.

Establishing proper function of the teeth

Getting braces will not only provide you with a beautiful smile but will provide proper dental function. Through your orthodontic treatment at Leber Ortho, we will help resolve any problems like crooked and crowded teeth, overbites or underbites, incorrect jaw position and other jaw related disorders. The lasting benefits of proper functioning teeth include:

  • Straight teeth are easier to clean, which may prevent tooth decay and gum disease
  • Proper dental function will decrease the abnormal wear of tooth surfaces and improve speaking, biting and chewing functions

At Leber Ortho we can provide you with the right orthodontic treatment to provide you with a beautiful smile and properly functioning teeth. Call Today for your FREE consultation!

Types of Braces at Leber Ortho

This is a great time to wear braces! Gone are the days when a metal band with a bracket was placed around each tooth. You can choose brackets that are clear or metallic color. You can choose the color of the ties that hold the wire on the brackets. Wires are also less noticeable than they used to be and the latest materials move teeth faster with less discomfort to patients.


Not a fan of the wires? Invisalign® uses a series of custom-made plastic aligners that are virtually invisible. Invisalign® is a great option for patients who don't want anyone to know they are straightening their teeth and want to smile more during their treatments. Learn more about Invisalign®.

Traditional Braces

Traditional braces are usually referred to as “metal braces” and are generally the most common. They are formed by bonding metal brackets to a patient’s teeth and connecting them through an arch wire. Traditional braces contain elastic bands that encompass the metal bracket. The elastic bands allow our patients to pick from a variety of colors during each appointment throughout the course of their braces treatment. This process allows the teeth to shift over time creating that “perfect smile”.

Clear Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces are structured like traditional braces, although, the bracket is composed of clear material. Ceramic braces are popular among many because they are less noticeable than traditional braces. It is important to note that patients who choose ceramic braces need to be cautious of their oral hygiene because the material is delicate and can acquire stains.

Questions About Braces

Are Braces Painful?

The overall process of placing the brackets on the teeth is painless. After the archwire is installed to the brackets there may be some mild soreness or discomfort. This may last for a few days or up to a week.

What is the average cost for braces?

The cost of your braces will vary depending on your individual needs and treatment plan. We will work with you to create a payment plan that fits your budget, and you will know what to expect before beginning treatment. Learn more about the Cost of Braces.

What is the best age for braces?

The good news is that patients in need of orthodontic treatment can benefit from treatment at any age. The ideal age for braces is between 10 and 14 years of age. However, adults can get braces too to help improve their smiles.

How long will I have to wear braces?

This will depend on your treatment plan and your unique needs. Most patients can count on wearing full braces between 12 and 24 months, followed by the wearing of a retainer to set and align tissues surrounding straightened teeth.
