Want to straighten your smile effectively and discreetly? Invisalign® and ClearCorrect™ aligner therapy are great options for adults and older teens who want straighter teeth on their terms.
Invisalign and ClearCorrect use a series of clear straightening trays to gradually and gently move your teeth into position, giving you a straighter, more beautiful smile that you’re proud to show off. The best part is that the aligners can be removed for short periods of time, so you don’t have to give up eating your favorite foods, plus you can brush and floss your teeth normally.
Six Month Smiles
Get the smile of your dreams before your next dental cleaning thanks to Six Month Smiles!
Six Month Smiles uses tooth-colored brackets and state-of-the-art wires to move your teeth faster than traditional braces. The wires have "shape memory," which allows us to make fewer adjustments to the braces while still giving you dramatic results.
Benefits of Six Month Smiles
- High-tech wires move teeth quickly and require fewer adjustment appointments
- Average treatment time is only 6-9 months
- Tooth-colored brackets are less noticeable
- Fewer adjustment appointments mean you save time and money
Conventional Metal Braces
Certain advanced orthodontic issues can only be treated with metal braces. In other cases, patients like the fact that they don't have to worry about losing their braces or taking them off before eating as with clear aligners. Metal braces work 24/7 to keep your treatment plan on track and straighten your smile.
If you are interested in the advantages that metal braces have to offer but don't like how they look, ask our team about lingual braces. Lingual braces are applied to the back of the teeth instead of the front and work just as quickly as traditional metal braces. Lingual braces can even be less noticeable than clear aligners!
