Thank you for choosing Malone Orthodontics as your trusted Alpharetta orthodontist. Our goal is to provide you with a beautiful smile for the rest of your life – something you can be proud of to build your confidence. We put comfort as top priority and want you to feel at home in our office and during your orthodontic treatment. Braces are one of the most popular treatments for straightening teeth, but with so much progress in orthodontics, we offer a variety of treatment options for our patients to achieve a healthier, more beautiful smile.

Metal Braces

  • Made of high quality stainless steel
  • Most common type of fixed orthodontic appliance
  • Reliable, effective, & economical
  • Smaller, lighter, and more comfortable than in the past

Ceramic Braces

  • girl-with-ceramic-braces.jpgBlends in with the natural tooth color – aesthetically appealing
  • Hard to notice
  • Less durable than metal counterparts
  • Brackets do not stain, however, the elastic bands do

Although the price for ceramic braces is typically higher than traditional metal braces, the aesthetic benefit outweighs the higher cost. These braces are used for all ages and celebrities wear them too! The technology of these types of braces continues to improve.


  • You don’t have to worry about sticky or hard foods
  • Removable at any time
  • Aesthetic
  • Less office visits during treatment
  • Same results!

Invisalign is a popular option and is a removable appliance, unlike fixed braces, which are cemented to teeth. These aligners are made of a smooth plastic material and are worn at all times aside from eating or brushing your teeth. Invisalign® is the clear alternative to traditional braces.
