Invisalign and Six Month Smiles for Pasadena, TX and Beyond
In the past, you had to wear traditional braces to achieve a genuinely straighter smile. Not everyone is interested in wearing traditional bracket-and-wire braces, though. Adults can feel especially nervous about undergoing treatment with traditional braces because of the associations involved.
Thankfully, there are now non-traditional options for adult patients to consider. With these options, it’s never been easier to achieve a straighter, healthier smile without drawing attention to the treatment process itself.
Our orthodontic options include:
Six Month Smiles®
One of the downsides of committing to treatment with traditional braces is the length of time it takes. Orthodontic care with traditional braces can often take a year or more to complete. But with the revolutionary Six Month Smiles system, it’s possible to help patients achieve beautiful results in just half a year. What’s more, Six Month Smiles uses clear brackets and tooth-colored wires instead of normal brackets and wires. As a result, your braces will be less noticeable.
Our second solution is one of the most popular orthodontic systems currently available. Invisalign is often perfect for anyone who needs to make minor cosmetic adjustments to their smile. Instead of using brackets and wires, it uses a series of clear aligners. As you go through your treatment, you’ll wear every aligner for about two weeks before moving on to the next one you’ve been supplied with. Each aligner will move your teeth a predetermined amount and bring you gradually to your beautiful new smile.
Besides using clear aligners to move your teeth, you can also enjoy all of your favorite foods as you undergo treatment. That’s because your aligners are removable. You can easily take them out when you eat, allowing you to enjoy a completely unrestricted diet. You’ll also take them out when you brush and floss. This will help you ensure that your teeth and gums stay clean as you work on straightening your smile.
