Your Richmond Orthodontist

Dr. Mahlmann

Creating beautiful smiles, beautiful faces, and helping people change and improve their lives is a passion of Dr. Lee Mahlmann’s. That is why he chose to be an orthodontist.

He knows how a beautiful smile opens many doors in a person’s life by making them more confident and outgoing and helping their self-esteem. He has learned through many years of practice that it takes a team effort to achieve a goal of a great smile. He has created an environment that brings everyone together as a team with a common goal.

The resulting smiles are truly helping patients become all they can be.

Dr. Catharine Borders knows that a smile from a loved one, friend or complete stranger can brighten someone’s day. She chose to become an orthodontist to create beautiful smiles for her patients that will give them the confidence and self-esteem to smile and brighten the day of those around them.

She earned her Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry with a concentration in biochemistry from the University of Louisville. She graduated valedictorian from the University of Louisville School of Dentistry, where she received her Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree. After dental school, she attended residency at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston School of Dentistry, receiving her certificate in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics and Master of Science in dentistry. Dr. Borders served as chief resident during her residency and currently serves as a part-time professor of orthodontics at UT-Houston dental school.

Dr. Borders is a board-certified orthodontist.

Metal Braces

Metal braces are the most common type of orthodontic treatment and have been effectively used for decades to correct a wide range of dental issues. At Mahlmann & Borders Orthodontics, we use high-quality metal braces that are more comfortable and efficient than ever before. These braces consist of metal brackets and wires that gradually move your teeth into their desired positions. Metal braces are highly durable and can treat complex cases, including severe misalignment, overcrowding, and bite issues. With regular adjustments, metal braces can help you achieve a straight, beautiful smile that lasts a lifetime.

Clear Braces

For those who prefer a more discreet option, clear braces offer the same effectiveness as traditional metal braces but with a less noticeable appearance. Clear braces use ceramic brackets that blend with the natural color of your teeth, making them less visible. This option is ideal for patients who want to maintain a more natural look during their orthodontic treatment. At Mahlmann & Borders Orthodontics, we provide high-quality clear braces that are both aesthetically pleasing and efficient in correcting dental issues. Clear braces are a great choice for teens and adults who are concerned about the visibility of their orthodontic appliances.

Clear Aligners

Clear aligners are a popular and innovative orthodontic treatment that provides a nearly invisible way to straighten teeth. These custom-made, removable aligners gradually shift your teeth into the desired position without the need for brackets or wires. Clear aligners are comfortable, easy to clean, and allow you to eat and drink without restrictions. At Mahlmann & Borders Orthodontics, we offer top-of-the-line clear aligner systems, such as Invisalign, to ensure our patients receive the best care possible. Clear aligners are suitable for treating mild to moderate orthodontic issues and are a fantastic option for both teens and adults seeking a more flexible treatment.

Advantages of Orthodontics Across All Ages

Orthodontic treatment offers numerous benefits for patients of all ages.

For Children

Early orthodontic treatment can address and prevent developmental dental issues, guiding the growth of the jaw and teeth. This proactive approach can reduce the need for more extensive treatment in the future.

For Teens

Orthodontic treatment during the teenage years can correct misalignment issues while the jaw and teeth are still growing. This is the ideal time to achieve optimal results with braces or aligners.

For Adults

It's never too late to achieve a beautiful smile. Orthodontic treatment for adults can improve oral health, boost self-esteem, and enhance professional and social interactions, regardless of age.
