If You Want Faster Results …

You should ask about Six Month Smiles. This is similar to traditional braces since it also uses brackets and wires to move teeth.

The difference is how those brackets and wires are used. Specifically, Six Month Smiles focuses on the teeth at the front of your mouth. These are the ones that are easiest to see when you smile. That also means moving those teeth can make a bigger difference in how your teeth look to others.

Six Month Smiles can correct a number of issues including gaps between teeth, overbites and underbites, crooked teeth, and crowding.

And as the name suggests, you could have your new smile in about half a year. This can vary by a month or two depending on your specific situation, but it still can transform your smile is less time than traditional braces.

If You Prefer To Be Discreet …

You should ask about ClearCorrect aligners. This system forgoes brackets and wires for a different approach to straightening teeth. Each set of aligners is custom-made for that patients.

The series of aligners are designed to gently push your teeth gradually into their new positions.

Like braces, they can be used to correct a wide range of alignment problems. Unlike braces, the aligners blend in to the point that they are practically invisible when worn over your teeth.

For many adults, this is the biggest selling point of this system. You can work on changing your smile without calling attention to what you are doing. That can help you feel more comfortable wearing your aligners in both professional and personal situations.

ClearCorrect has another advantage over braces that we want to mention here. You can — and should — remove your aligners during meals. That means you don’t have to give up any of your favorite foods during your treatment.

Add Whitening For An Even Better Smile

After you finish straightening your teeth, you can take your smile transformation to another level. Professional teeth whitening can remove deep stains. This can help your new smile stand out even more.

We offer both Zoom in-office whitening and Opalescence take-home whitening kits, so you can choose the one that works best for you.
