“My teeth are gorgeous! Dr. Mann worked his genius mechanical skills and I now have a gorgeous smile!
It's one thing to have superior clinical skills but Dr. Mann has the best bedside-manner of any of my physicians. Loved his positive and sunny personality! I highly recommend Dr. Mann; especially to adults who have waited to get braces or perhaps need braces again! My husband said that if Dr. Mann can get me to comply with all the care needed then Dr. Mann can get any teen or child to comply!
Tampa's gain is Gainesville's loss of a great orthodontist!“

Clear (Ceramic) Braces
Ceramic braces are made of clear materials and are therefore less visible on your teeth than metal braces. For this reason, ceramic braces are used mainly on older teenagers and adult patients who have cosmetic concerns. While they are visually less prominent, they do require more attention to oral hygiene as ceramic braces are larger and are more brittle than their metal counterparts. For these reasons, ceramic braces tend to be used more on upper front teeth than on lower teeth.
Clear Aligners (Invisalign)
Invisalign is the clear alternative to metal braces for adults, kids and teens. These clear aligners are the virtually invisible way to improve your smile. Invisalign treatment is heavily reliant on patient compliance, as the clear aligners must be worn at least 22 hours per day. This is a great option for working professionals or patients of all ages seeking a discrete way to straighten teeth and obtain a beautiful, healthy smile.
