Are you someone who is self-conscious or even embarrassed about your smile? Many adults spend their entire lives covering their mouths when they laugh, smile, or talk. They feel stuck because they do not want to wear adult metal braces for years. They are concerned that other corrective teeth straightening procedures could be too invasive or too expensive.
Now, there are effective, safe, and affordable cosmetic braces solutions to fit your lifestyle.
Q: How can teeth be straightened in only six months with adult clear braces?
A: We use the latest technology and techniques in dentistry to move your teeth quickly and safely with clear adult braces. The key components of the treatment are the use of unique, clear braces and a primary focus on moving the teeth that show when you smile.
Q: Six months sounds good, but will I still have a mouth full of metal braces for the whole time?
A: No! We can use clear braces that are barely visible to gently straighten your teeth.
Q: How are clear braces more comfortable than regular braces?
A: Clear cosmetic braces use low force to move teeth gently. Many people think that the accelerated braces treatment means simply “tightening” regular braces to get the teeth moving, but that is not true. We utilize standard orthodontic mechanics, but with an emphasis on the cosmetic appearance of your teeth rather than the position of your bite.
Q: Do clear braces damage the teeth, roots, or gums?
A: There are no more risks of root damage or other issues than those associated with traditional orthodontics. Since the forces used with clear braces are lighter and teeth are seldom extracted, there are actually even fewer risks involved.
Q: Will I have to wear a retainer?
A: Yes, as with any teeth-straightening treatment a retainer is necessary to maintain the straighter position of your teeth. If you don’t want to wear a removable retainer, you can have a bonded retainer placed. There are a variety of options that you can choose from according to your personal preference and situation.
Q: What’s the catch?
A: There is no catch. If you are an adult (16 years and older) with crooked or spaced teeth and you’re not looking for a major alteration to your bite, this could be the solution for you! Most adults ARE candidates for Clear Braces.
