At Bright Smiles Family Dentistry in Garner, NC, we believe that a straighter smile is the gateway to boosted confidence and improved oral health. Dr. Rouhani and Dr. Hartman are here to offer state-of-the-art orthodontic solutions tailored to meet your unique needs.

What is Orthodontics?

Orthodontics is a specialized branch of dentistry focused on correcting teeth and jaws that are positioned improperly. Crooked teeth or teeth that do not fit together correctly are harder to keep clean, can be lost early due to tooth decay and periodontal disease, and cause extra stress on the chewing muscles, which can lead to headaches and TMJ syndrome.
But it’s not just about appearance—orthodontic treatment ensures the proper function of your teeth and creates a well-aligned smile, contributing to your overall oral health.

What To Expect at Your Orthodontic Consultation

Your journey to a straighter smile begins with an orthodontic consultation at Bright Smiles Family Dentistry. During this visit, you will:
  • Meet Our Team: You’ll be greeted by our friendly team and introduced to Dr. Rouhani or Dr. Hartman, who will be guiding you through your orthodontic treatment.
  • Discuss Your Goals: We want to hear about your dental concerns and your smile goals. This helps us tailor the treatment plan to your desires.
  • Undergo a Comprehensive Exam: We’ll take a thorough look at your teeth, jaw, and oral structure, including x-rays and digital scans, to assess your needs.
  • Review Your Options: After the examination, we’ll discuss the recommended treatment options and answer any questions you may have.
  • Plan Your Treatment: Once you’ve decided on the best course of action, we’ll outline your treatment plan, cost, duration, and what you can expect during the process.

Orthodontic Treatments in Garner, NC

At Bright Smiles Family Dentistry, we offer a variety of orthodontic treatments to help you achieve the smile of
your dreams. These include:

Clear Aligners

Clear aligners are a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable acrylic trays that straighten your teeth like braces. Not only are the aligners invisible, but they are also removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment; plus, brushing and flossing are less of a hassle.


As a premier provider of Invisalign in Garner, NC, we offer a clear alternative to metal braces for adults and teens. These clear aligners are the virtually invisible way to improve your smile without interrupting your life.


Sometimes, achieving the perfect smile requires more than just aligners or braces. We provide a range of orthodontic appliances, such as palatal expanders, space maintainers, and more, designed to address specific issues and ensure comprehensive care.


After your teeth are straightened, retainers are used to hold them in their new position. We offer various types of retainers, from traditional wire retainers to clear retainers, ensuring your smile stays put long after the braces come off.
