Braces in Zionsville and Carmel


We offer a variety of braces options

Keep things sleek with clear, esthetic, or custom braces, or express your style with classic braces and colors!

Metal braces

Traditional metal braces use stainless steel brackets to guide your teeth into the desired positions using Dr. Godley's custom wires.  With today's technology, braces are smaller, making them less noticeable and more comfortable than they were in the past.

Clear ceramic braces

Clear braces use a ceramic tooth-colored bracket that is nearly invisible!  We offer these braces in both a "self-ligating" feature or custom-made using LightForce braces to keep them as esthetic and sleek as possible.

Gold champagne rhodium braces


Similar to traditional braces, champagne gold braces also use small, durable metal brackets.  However, these braces offer a more elegant, stylish look due to their lighter color.  These braces appear brighter and less noticeable than the traditional silver brackets.  Dr. Godley's lighter champagne braces are plated in a precious metal known as rhodium, and a great option for patients with sensitivity or allergy to nickel.

Self-ligating braces

These braces feature a special clip or "door" that secures the wire, so elastic color ties are not needed.  We offer this feature in combination with our clear esthetic braces, which creates a very discreet look.

Specialty / Custom Options


InBrace® is a lingual braces system in which the braces are secured on the back side (tongue side) of your teeth, where they are hidden and out of sight.  Although speech and comfort are affected more than with classic braces, these are a great option for those looking for an esthetic treatment and want to avoid challenges associated with clear aligners.


Lightforce braces are digitally created, 3D printed, and fully customized to your individual tooth anatomy.  Made with a ceramic material, these brackets are clear and esthetic.  Using a digital scan of your teeth, Dr. Godley designs your braces and their positioning for efficient, seamless treatment.


Steps to your perfect smile

Meet your orthodontist and learn about your options at your complimentary consultation.


If you are ready to get started, we offer some same day options.  Our team will bond your series of braces and secure your first wire.  If you opt for a treatment that requires customization, we will schedule you to return for bonding of your braces.


Every 6 to 10 weeks throughout your treatment, you’ll visit our office for a wire adjustment.  Over time, you will see your teeth and bite shift into their new positions.

It is important that you have excellent dental hygiene during your treatment, and visit your general dentist for check-ups and cleanings.

How do braces work?

After Dr. Godley develops a treatment plan for you and you're ready to start, our team will bond a series of braces (brackets) to your teeth.  Braces have a special slot to hold orthodontic wires in place, so after they are bonded we guide and secure the archwire into place.

Throughout your treatment, you’ll visit our office regularly for wire adjustments to keep you on track.  Over time, you will see your teeth and bite shift into place.  After treatment, Dr. Godley will help you select which retainer type will be best for you to keep your beautiful results intact.
