Straighten Up! Adult Braces Popular Choice
- Posted on: Jan 14 2014
Adult braces are becoming a very popular choice in the US. About half of all orthodontic patients are now adults – remember when braces were only spotted on teens? Adults with crooked, but healthy, teeth have discovered that taking the plunge can be life changing. Most people want to have a great smile because they know that it can make a difference in both their personal and professional lives.
Braces have changed a lot over the past several years. Today we can even straighten your smile in half a year. Using Six Month Smiles, your crowded teeth can gain the room they so desperately need and that gap can be closed.
Six Month Smiles treatment time averages… you guessed it – Six Months! Brackets and wires used in treatment are clear so they are almost invisible. How can Six Month Smiles straighten teeth in so little time when standard orthodontic treatment takes 12 to 18 months? Simple, orthodontic treatment for children usually involves moving teeth to improve their bite, or jaw size or any number of complications. For patients over 15 years of age, Six Month Smiles is perfect because it focuses on our smiles.
Not all patients are candidates for Six Month Smiles. Some people who have teeth that are discolored or misshapen will have a better cosmetic outcome using dental veneers rather than braces. Dental veneers can give the appearance of “instant orthodontics” while also giving you a beautiful white, translucent smile.
