Have you been dreaming of a straight smile but hate the idea of having to wear ugly, bulky wire braces? With modern orthodontic technology, you don’t have to! At Donaldson 3D Orthodontics, we offer several solutions to the problem of highly visible braces that will transform your smile with hardly anyone noticing!

Each of the cosmetically appealing orthodontic solutions we offer are suitable for both young patients and adults, so even if you’ve delayed straightening your teeth for years, you’re still eligible for these wonderful solutions!

Metal-Free Brackets – Practically Invisible!

The most noticeable part of every teeth-straightening system is the brackets. Brackets are bulky, made of steel or titanium, and generally need a rubber band to hold the wire in place, making them even bulkier! If you’ve ever heard the term “metal mouth,” then you know all about traditional braces.

While our metal braces are smaller than the brackets of the past, they still aren’t invisible, which is why we offer ceramic brackets that match the color of your teeth! These brackets are just as effective as traditional ones but have the added benefit of being almost unnoticeable! Paired with our heat-activated nickel titanium wires, you’ll be able to get straight teeth without sacrificing aesthetics!


For patients who want a truly unnoticeable orthodontic solution, we offer Invisalign and Invisalign Teen! With these systems, both you and your loved ones can get a perfect smile without any metal, ceramic, or any visible parts – just a series of clear plastic aligners that you wear throughout the day and night!

Invisalign is surprisingly unnoticeable, and once you get used to wearing your aligners, you might even forget that you’re wearing them! Made of a strong and super-thin plastic, Invisalign is worn for 22 hours out of the day and is removed when you eat and brush your teeth. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks and is then swapped out for a new one that moves your teeth just a little bit further.

Invisalign can treat many of the same problems that traditional braces do, and it’s getting better all the time! There are some severe alignment issues that can be fixed only by traditional braces, however, which is why we’ll always want to have you in for a full set of 3D orthodontic scans before we proceed with a treatment plan.


If you want to whiten your teeth before or after an orthodontic sequence, we’re happy to help make a bright smile a reality for you! We use custom-fit trays that you take home and use over several weeks. By wearing your whitening trays as prescribed by Dr. Buddy, you’ll have a bright, white smile before you know it!

If you have been putting off orthodontic treatment because you or someone you love doesn’t want to wear traditional braces, the time has finally come to take the leap! With our aesthetically pleasing and practically invisible solutions, you can get the straight smile you’ve always wanted without compromising your look!

If you’re ready to start your journey toward the perfect smile, call us today at 337-465-4139 or fill out our online appointment request form. We look forward to seeing you soon!
