Short-Term Orthodontics

Many adults would love to have even, beautiful teeth that they don’t hesitate to show off in a smile, but aren’t interested in the long-term commitment of traditional orthodontics. The prospect of wearing braces for years keeps them smiling behind their hands or with closed mouths.

We offer two options for amazingly fast and discreet teeth straightening. If you only need straightening to the teeth visible in your smile, Six Month Smiles™ might be perfect for you. Another option is Invisalign™ clear aligners, which make it possible to have straight teeth in as few as 9-15 months if you have more complex orthodontic needs.

Straight Teeth in Six Months or Even Less!

Six Month Smiles™ uses a revolutionary technique that moves only the teeth visible in your smile. The gentle but accelerated method can eliminate gaps, crowding, and overlapping in only about six months. For some patients, it’s even less!

Another advantage to Six Month Smiles is how discreet they are. The brackets are clear, and the clear or white-colored wires are barely visible. Even though the process is fast, the method uses a low force that increases comfort. The short treatment time also allows for improved hygiene and the opportunity for an even cleaner look when it’s done.

To top it off? Six Month Smiles is often less expensive than traditional braces, aligner therapy, or veneers! Say hello to gorgeous, straight teeth in a matter of months!

The Clear Alternative for a Straighter Smile

Invisalign™ invisible aligners are an innovative solution that allows you to have straight teeth in as little as 9 – 15 months! These aligners can correct overcrowding, widely spaced teeth, overbite, underbite, or crossbite.

Invisalign uses advanced 3-D computer-imaging technology to prepare your entire treatment plan from the current positioning of your teeth to your final smile. From this plan, clear thermoplastic aligners are created. These are similar to teeth-whitening trays and are custom made to exactly fit your teeth. When you place the first set of aligners, they use gentle forces to move your teeth gently into position. Approximately two weeks later, you replace them with the next set of aligners, and progress through treatment for about a year. You only need to come into the office for evaluation every four to eight weeks. Total treatment time is based on your personal needs and goals.

There are some distinct advantages to the Invisalign system. The best part is that no one will know you’re straightening your teeth because the clarity of the aligners renders them almost invisible! The aligners are all in one piece, with no metal or wires to be checked and adjusted, so not only are they comfortable, you get to spend less time in the dentist’s chair. Then there’s the convenience factor. Though you wear the aligners all day as well as while you sleep, they are easily removable for eating and brushing. You can eat and drink what you want while in treatment, with no food restrictions. And keeping your teeth clean and free of plaque is just as easy as it was before treatment, because there are no braces to get in the way of brushing and flossing.
