Do you worry that your crooked or gapped teeth detract from your smile? Many adults desire the results of orthodontic treatment, but until recently, the only option was traditional metal braces. Fortunately, modern technology and dental advancements have led to the development of many options. Talk to your cosmetic dentist about which option is right for you:
Six Month Smiles
Six Month Smiles is a new orthodontic system designed to make your smile straight in just six months’ time. This system uses tooth-colored braces and wires to reposition your teeth. It works more quickly than traditional braces because it’s designed to simply to align your teeth into a beautiful smile, not adjust your bite. Those who choose Six Month Smiles come in for regular adjustments. The system works quickly, is discreet, and positions your visible teeth into a straight, beautiful, and perfectly aligned smile.
Invisalign is an entirely new way to straighten teeth. This system is perfect for adults and teens because it uses clear, removable trays that are nearly invisible. Those who choose Invisalign must commit to improving their smiles at home, because the trays must be changed out approximately every two weeks. The trays are customized for your mouth and slowly adjust your teeth into a straightened position. The process usually takes between nine and 15 months to complete. The clear trays are only removed for eating and must stay in place during sleep.
