Alternatives to Traditional Braces ,

If you want straighter, more attractive teeth but you don’t want to spend the time it takes for traditional braces to work, you are not alone.  Traditional braces and clear trays like Invisalign can take years.  This is not an attractive option for many adults.  But what are the alternatives?

If you want to improve the appearance of your smile and don’t need major bite changes, porcelain veneers may be an option.  Porcelain veneers are very thin porcelain shells that are laminated to a tooth to create a new surface. The thin, custom-made pieces of porcelain are permanently bonded to the front surface of a tooth to restore or improve the tooth’s position. If done well, they can dramatically improve a person’s smile and overall facial appearance.

Six-month braces are another option for patients who desire straighter, more attractive teeth but do not want to go through the time involved with traditional braces.  With six-month braces, patients can get the esthetic, straightened look that they desire in just six months.  This can be achieved by mainly focusing on correcting just the teeth in the front and not making major changes to your bite.  The system is similar to traditional braces but uses white wire and white brackets.  Six-month braces are the fastest way to achieve the straightened look you desire without doing veneers.

Many cosmetic dental practices offer both porcelain veneers and six-month braces.  If you want a straighter more attractive smile, but do not want traditional braces, contact a qualified cosmetic Dentist in your area to get more information about these procedures and how they may benefit you.
