How We Work with Orthodontists
We will work in conjunction with all types of specialists to get the best outcome. Like a general contractor, we have the house plan and hire out the other specialists to create the foundation needed for the restoration.
We may need more space for an implant or may need to create restorative space for a proper restoration. When this happens, we work with orthodontists to create a great outcome for a prosthetic.

Take Your Smile to the Next Level
Professional teeth whitening is designed to safely whiten your smile by several shades in a short amount of time. Our doctors use a special whitening formula to avoid over-whitening, tooth sensitivity, and gum irritation while producing a bright, confident smile.
Veneers are thin porcelain shells that cover the front surface of your teeth, masking cosmetic imperfections such as chips, stains, or asymmetry. After orthodontics, veneers can help you improve the brightness and balance of your smile.
Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that cover damaged, cracked, or badly decayed teeth. At Cary Prosthodontics, we take great care in creating crowns. Each restoration is carefully designed to complement your bite and blend in with your other teeth.
If you are missing teeth, our doctors may recommend dental implants. Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that connect crowns, bridges, or dentures directly to your jawbone. Our doctors use digital technology to precisely plan implant treatment and determine if you need orthodontics before implant surgery.

FAQs from Patients Who Need Orthodontics
Why visit Cary Prosthodontics instead of a general dentist?
At Cary Prosthodontics, we work with highly trained orthodontists to deliver the best possible treatment outcomes. Unlike general dentists, orthodontists specialize in diagnosing and correcting misalignment. They also offer the latest orthodontic treatments including Six Month Smiles.
What about mail-delivery aligners?
We've all seen commercials advertising low-cost, mail-delivery aligners. While it can be tempting to opt for a more affordable option, our doctors do not recommend it. With mail-delivery aligners, there is very little planning involved, and there are no check-ups to monitor your progress. When you work with our office serving Cary and Raleigh, you get a dedicated doctor who will carefully plan your treatment and monitor your progress every step of the way.
Should I get clear braces or clear aligners?
Your orthodontist will offer their recommendation on whether clear braces or clear aligners are right for you. The best type of orthodontic treatment will largely depend on the complexity of your case.
