There are countless adults out there who would LOVE to straighten their teeth, but there is one problem: they can’t imagine facing the world with a mouthful of metal braces. For people in Covington, however, they now have a more aesthetically-friendly alternative: Invisalign. With this system, a patient can straighten their teeth while no one around them knows they are undergoing treatment. Or, for those with no time to waste, Six Month Smiles can deliver results in as little as…well…six months!
If you were to look at a person using Invisalign, you probably wouldn’t be able to tell. That’s because this treatment uses a series of thin, see-through plastic aligners to shift the teeth as opposed to brackets and wires. Not only are they virtually invisible, but removable as well, meaning patients don’t have to alter their diet or brushing habits like with braces. Just by wearing a series of progressive aligners, patients with crooked, crowded, and gapped teeth can get the smiles they’ve always wanted.
Have a teen at home in need of orthodontic care, but they would literally die if you made them get braces? Now you don’t have. Invisalign Teen works the same basic way as standard Invisalign, but with two changes that make it ideal for younger patients. One, each aligner has a small blue dot towards the back that fades as it is worn, helping parents and teens keep their treatment on track. And, every treatment comes with at least six replacement trays, which is perfect for even the most clumsy or forgetful teen.
Six Month Smiles is able to work much faster than traditional braces because it only shifts the teeth that show when a person smiles. Because fewer teeth are involved, they are able to move much faster without the need of additional force. Six Month Smiles also has a much more subtle appearance than regular braces, featuring see-through brackets as well as tooth-colored wires. With this treatment, a patient can dramatically improve their smile’s appearance without the time commitment of regular braces.
