We create treatment plans that correct teeth alignment, using expedited processes whenever possible. Our Hamden orthodontic office provides patients with three main braces options:

Metal Braces – These appliances use metal wires and brackets to guide your teeth and readjust your beautiful bite. Monthly visits with Dr. Schpero are required for routine adjustments. 

Clear Braces –This orthodontic option is less noticeable than their traditional counter parts. Made of ceramic, tooth-colored brackets and wires, these braces follow the same treatment process as traditional metal braces. You are invited back to our dental practice for monthly adjustments. 

Invisalign® - This treatment system utilizes a series of clear aligners that gradually moves teeth into alignment. Worn on both the upper and lower arches, set of trays are provided every few weeks to advance movement. Nearly invisible in the smile, Invisalign® clear aligners allow patients the convenience of discreet treatment to straighten their smile without changing their daily activities. These custom aligning trays are fit directly to the contours of your smile, and patients can view simulated final results before treatment even begins.

I want to thank you for recommending Invisalign braces when I first visited your office 14 months ago. My dentist highly recommended you since one of your specialties is adult orthodontics. It has been such a positive, easy experience using the clear aligners and I am thrilled with my new beautiful, straight teeth. You cannot imagine the additional self-confidence it has given me.

As you know, work in sales and marketing and I am in my late 50's. For years I have wanted to straighten my teeth because I was always self conscience of my teeth. I wish I had visited your office years ago because the process of the removable, Invisalign aligners allowed me to continue to transact business and enjoy social activities with people no realizing I was wearing braces.

All of your office staff was so professioal and accommodating with appointments, and I want to thank you personally for the dental guidance and encouragement you have given me. You have literally changed my life and I wish I had decided to do this procedure years ago.

Dr. Schpero is absolutely amazing. The experience from start to finish has been seamless, and dare I say-painless?! Dr. Schpero is the consummate professional, making sure that I understood each step and answering any questions or concerns that I had. I could see an improvement in my teeth almost immediately, and, now that my braces are off, I cannot tell you how happy I am with how my teeth look. I would recommend Dr. Schpero to anyone, and thoughly enjoyed my entire experience with him and all of his staff. Thank you so much, I will actually miss seeing you and your staff on a monthly basis!
