Cosmetic Options for Adults
Braces are often seen as a symbol of adolescence, but braces are not just for young people anymore. Advancements in orthodontic care have made orthodontics more appealing for adults; wire or plastic braces options that are more discreet than ever before. There’s also an increased focus on esthetics and straight teeth for professional and social reasons. And of course, the desire for a lifetime of greater confidence with a beautiful smile.
Bellevue & Sammamish is home to a large workforce of professionals working at some of the world’s most cutting edge technology companies. Dr. Rooz is happy to help them improve their smiles, which can give them a lifetime of confidence and the ability to reach their full potential.
Our Most Popular Treatments for Adults
PORTH Clear Aligners (Invisalign)
Aligners are clear plastic trays that fit closely over the teeth, apply pressure on the teeth and slowly but steadily move them.
- 3D Printed Plastic Trays
- Ready in to pick up in a day
- Comfortable and discreet
- 18-22 hour daily wear time
Lingual braces are a popular option for many adults seeking to improve their smile as they utilize the technology of traditional fixed braces.
- Braces are placed behind your teeth
- Most efficient treatment for most patients
- Fixed, 24 hour daily wear time, minor diet restrictions
There’s no one-size-fits-all treatment at PORTH, every treatment plan is specific to each patient’s needs. Our personalized treatment extends beyond the clinic, including flexible appointments and affordable ways to start treatment.
We offer the option for remote monitoring, so we can better accommodate your busy work or travel schedule.
Most Advanced Technology
Clear aligners are designed and 3D printed based on a digital simulation of teeth in their ideal positions. Our braces are digitally positioned on the teeth and we use 3D printing technology to bond the brackets on the teeth.
Use Your Health Benefits
Your dental plan, FSA and HSA benefits are welcome here. We will work with you to create a payment plan that fits your budget, and you will know what to expect before beginning treatment.
More Treatment Options
Esthetic Adult Braces
Esthetic braces are made of ceramic, which is tooth colored. This makes the appearance of the braces less visually “loud” as the brackets almost blend in with the teeth.
For adult orthodontic patients who prefer to avoid traditional braces when seeking to straighten their teeth, clear braces would be the next best choice.
Accelerated orthodontic treatment is often a favorite choice for adult patients. Bone micro-perforation is currently the only available option that is most likely to speed up the treatment.
At the time of your consultation, and throughout your treatment, we will walk you through all your options and discuss the pros and cons of accelerated orthodontics in detail. Dr. Rooz uses special instruments to create tiny holes in the bone tissue around your teeth which induce lots of inflammation and helps your teeth to move faster.
Orthognathic Surgery &
Treatment for Sleep Disorders
Jaw surgery has become easier than ever, primarily through advances in digital technology in orthodontics and appliances used to set the jaw after re-positioning them in the ideal location. We work with a few extraordinary surgeons, and our interdisciplinary team has improved the lives of many patients with skeletal issues.
Sleep disorders have been a primary focus in dentistry in recent years, and several appliances are available to address them. The use of orthognathic surgery to advance the jaw has been one of the most successful approaches to treat sleep disorders to date.
After you finish with your orthodontic care and your teeth are straight, we will give you a clear plastic appliance that is called retainer.
These clear retainers are removable. Whether your treatment plan had Invisalign or clear braces, you will have two plastic trays.
You will wear these retainers full time in the beginning, and later you may only wear them at night. Faster treatment time requires slightly more clear retainer wear.

MAIL ORDER ALIGNERS
Why Ariel opted for PORTH
clear aligners instead of mail order aligners
Ariel switched to PORTH clear aligners because it addressed the root of her issue, bite, and the cost was the same as current treatment.
HIGHLY RECOMMEND! I had braces before and never wore my retainer. My teeth had shifted and I hated my smile. This place had great reviews so I took a leap of faith. Staff so was friendly and the office is beautiful.
I am 8 weeks into my treatment and I am extremely happy with my results using the clear aligners. The payment plan also make it easy and affordable to maintain.
I have wanted to have my teeth straightened for years. As an adult, I was hesitant to get braces and bother with the process; it seemed like a big ordeal with lots of ortho options out there to research. I am so happy I went to Porth! I highly recommend Porth to anyone, any age. My experience here has been excellent from start to finish. Dr. Rooz has been so patient, helpful, and kind. I can text when I have a question or concern and hear back quickly. I love the ability to have weekend and evening appointments. The office is clean and modern and the staff are warm and friendly. And most importantly - I am thrilled with the progress of my new smile! I have so much more confidence and can't wait until masks are off so everyone can see.
