Your tired of your teeth looking crooked, so you decide it’s time to talk to your dentist about setting them straight. The only problem is, you don’t want to have to wear traditional braces. How can you get a better smile without all the bulky metal? You might be surprised to know there are other alternatives that can give you a beautiful smile quicker and easier. Your dentist may suggest Invisalign aligners or Six Month Smiles®. Read on to learn more about each one and how they can give you a stellar smile in no time.
Why Choose Six Month Smiles®?
There is so much upkeep with traditional braces. The metal brackets and wires require a lot of dedication, and as a busy adult, you may not have that kind of time, nor do you want to walk into work with a mouth full of metal. This is where Six Month Smiles® can help! Closely resembling traditional braces, these are crafted from clear or tooth-colored materials.
Not only are they more visually appealing, but they realign only the teeth that are visible when you smile! Using digital x-rays, photos, and bite impressions, your dentist will work to generate a plan that will move your front teeth to proper alignment and location.
Forget years of having to wear traditional braces, with Six Month Smiles®, you’ll see your teeth begin to shift into position gradually within three to eight months, giving you the smile you’ve always wanted.
Why Choose Invisalign?
If you’re looking for a way to straighten your smile without having to avoid certain foods, visit the dentist multiple times, or deal with the irritation of brackets and wires from traditional braces, Invisalign may be for you. This treatment provides customized oral trays that help to align your teeth and blend with your natural smile. They are hard to detect by others, so you don’t have to worry about anyone noticing your treatment.
Your dentist will capture impressions to create new, customized aligners, each representing a different stage of your smile. After wearing one for a few weeks, your dentist will instruct you to move to the next.
While it takes anywhere from 8 to 18 months for Invisalign treatment to be completed, these allow you to:
- Eat what you want
- Brush and floss like normal
- Remove them for a short time (an event)
- Avoid multiple dental checkups (You will need to attend regular checkups so your dentist can be sure your teeth are making good progress.)
There are other options for orthodontic care. Don’t let your crooked teeth or the idea of traditional braces keep you from showing off a beautiful smile. Talk to your cosmetic dentist today about Invisalign or Six Month Smiles® to determine which option is right for you!
