Many people associate orthodontic treatment with an embarrassing aspect of those awkward teenage years. As an adult, you may not be enthusiastic about the idea of sporting metal braces for years, but you probably aren’t happy with crooked teeth either. Visit Clint Bruyere, DDS, in Longview, and you won’t have to choose! We offer Six Month Smiles, the premier esthetic adult teeth-straightening system.
The advancements of modern dentistry have not bypassed orthodontics. In the past, there was essentially only one option. The same bulky metal brackets and lengthy procedure would be prescribed for a teen with severe bite problems, or an adult with unsightly crooked, gapped, or crowded teeth. Today’s focus on individualized, targeted treatment has brought us the revolutionary Six Month Smile system.
The system is similar to traditional orthodontics, with a few important differences. Lightweight, clear brackets replace the familiar metal variety, and the discreet tooth-colored wire blends with your smile. The result is virtually invisible braces! An additional benefit of clear brackets is that they are smooth and lightweight. Therefore, they are much more comfortable to wear than metal braces.
Six Month Smiles is not right for everyone. It is for adults only, and designed for primarily cosmetic enhancement. By eliminating the steps needed for major jaw realignment, the timeframe of treatment is dramatically reduced. The name isn’t misleading – most cases are completed within four to nine months, with an average time of six months.
The reasons to straighten your teeth are many. Studies have shown that people with beautiful smiles are perceived as more intelligent and likeable, as well as more attractive. Feeling embarrassment every time you smile can drain the joy from life’s happiest moments. Additionally, your oral health can benefit greatly, as crooked or crowded teeth can trap plaque where you cannot reach to clean.
We offer a full range of cosmetic dentistry options, if you wish to continue enhancing your smile. Many patients follow teeth straightening with teeth whitening for an unmistakably dazzling smile. If you are embarrassed by your crooked, misaligned teeth call (903) 708-6116 and schedule an appointment – you can smile with pride!
