Choose the Orthodontic Solution For Your Smile

  • February 15, 2015

We treat all ages for a variety of ailments, but one of our favorite things to do is to treat adults with orthodontics.

Adults? That’s right! Adults! We are used to seeing kids running around with metallic braces sparkling in their smiles, but adults often get overlooked because most adults don’t want to be metal mouths!

That’s one reason why we love this process so much. We love to see adults find out that they don’t have to wear metal braces if they don’t want to! There are other orthodontic options that all you to get the smile of your dreams without any of the embarrassment of having tinsel teeth.

Let’s take a look at some of those options together so that you have a better idea of what’s available you here at Total Dental Care in Columbia, SC.

Dental Lumineers: Instant Orthodontics

Instant orthodontics? We have to be kidding, right? Well, we kind of are.

Lumineers are NOT orthodontic treatment, but we are including them in this information because for some patients, Lumineers can accomplish the smile goals in a single appointment instead of spending months trying to get a better smile.

For smiles that simply have gaps or a little bit of overcrowding, Lumineers can be a great solution. The Lumineers will cover the gaps or crowded areas and make it appear that your smile is perfectly straight! Talk about an easy solution!

Six Month Smiles: Improve Your Smile

As we said, Lumineers are only for some smiles. There is a group of patients out there who just want to have a nicer smile! They are tired of the crooked front teeth, the crowding, or multiple gaps throughout their smile zone.

This is where Six Month Smiles is able to step in and save the day. In an average of six months, you can completely transform the teeth in your smile. We use clear brackets and tooth-colored wires to blend the braces into your smile like camouflage.

People will be able to see the braces, but they won’t stand out. The best part is that you’ll only be wearing them for 6 months! Then you’ll walk away with a stunning smile that you can’t wait for people to notice!

ClearCorrect: Repair Alignment Issues

Finally, we come to ClearCorrect. For many of our adult patients, this is the orthodontic treatment to lean on! ClearCorrect adjusts your entire arch of teeth using clear plastic aligners. We make a series of aligners that you will switch out every two weeks.

The aligners are designed to fit tightly against your teeth to add pressure and movement. Over a period of 12-18 months, your entire smile will be transformed into something you can be proud of!

The best part is that NO ONE will notice these aligners. You can go to work, go on dates, or interact with other parents in your community with NO PROBLEM and NO EMBARRASSMENT!

It doesn’t get any better than that!

Are you an adult who is seeking orthodontic care, but you’ve been afraid that metal braces were your only options? Think again!
