Orthodontic Solutions Offered at Our Boerne, TX, Office
Traditional braces are a longstanding solution to correct a host of dental misalignment issues such as crowding, crooked teeth, gaps in your smile, and more. Your orthodontist can fit custom braces that gently move your teeth into alignment, resulting in a straighter, more symmetrical smile. In addition to braces that have metal brackets, our Boerne location also offers braces made of tooth-colored ceramics that achieve a sleeker, more natural look.
If you’ve got minor misalignment issues, Invisalign may be the perfect option for you. Suitable for teens and adults alike, this “invisible” orthodontic solution involves a series of custom aligners that help you achieve a straighter smile over time. Removable, comfortable, and incredibly convenient, Invisalign is an extremely popular choice for those who may not need traditional braces to address misaligned teeth.
Braces and invisible aligners are just part of the orthodontic solutions we offer; our practice provides patients with appliances that promote alignment and good dental wellness. From palatal expanders and retainers to headgear, custom dental appliances can play an integral role before and after your orthodontic treatment. They make great results possible for years to come.

Dentistry vs. Orthodontics
When it comes to specialists in the field of dentistry, you may not know the difference is between a dentist and an orthodontist.
Both dentists and orthodontists help keep your mouth healthy; they just do so in different ways. There are several advantages to receiving treatment from an orthodontist over a standard dentist:
Orthodontists and dentists both attend dental school after their undergraduate studies. An orthodontist receives additional training in malocclusion and related dentistry subjects through a residency program.
While more and more dentists offer Invisalign, orthodontists create more involved orthodontic treatment plans. Their intimate understanding of irregularities in the teeth and jaws means treatment can be quicker or more effective.
"Thanks for a great experience" More High Praise for Our Practice
I can finally say I LOVE my smile! Dr Hulme knows his stuff! I went to other orthos who said I would need jaw surgery to fix my bite, but Dr Hulme was very confident he could fix it without surgery. He and his staff are amazing, everyone is kind and efficient and I would definitely recommend anyone to come here!
The staff and Dr. are amazing. They keep me informed on each step and what to expect. My daughter is treated so respectfully and she loves it. Each time she goes for an appt. she comes out proud and educated on how to take care of her braces or retainer. Thanks for a great experience.
