Each retainer can be customized with additional components, such as active springs, bite plates, labial acrylic, and more. We offer a wide selection of colors and patterns beyond the classic translucent pink. Color charts are available upon request.
If you do not see your specific appliance on the list, please call us directly about an expanded list or custom order. A price-list and color chart are available upon request to serious inquiries.

Please allow at least 4-5 business days for standard retainers and metal appliances. Advanced appliances may need more time. For mailing accounts, allow additional time for transit. Rush two-day (48 hours) turnaround available in case of emergencies by special request for an additional charge.
Our warranty for most appliances is 90 days from the delivery date. If an appliance breaks within that period of time, we will repair it for free. If an appliance breaks after the warranty has expired, we will repair it (if possible) for a partial fee or remake it at full price. If an appliance was made incorrectly, we will remake it for free. In the case where an appliance fits the model but does not fit the patient, there is a possibility of a distortion due to a poorly-taken impression: thus, a new model will be necessary for a remake. Any "redo" appliances must be returned to the lab in order for the warranty to be applied. Distortions happen occasionally, but an excessive amount of remakes not at the lab's fault will lead to regular charges.
