You’ve always wished you had the straighter, picture-perfect smile you see in advertisements and on TV. Some are lucky enough to be born with a beautiful, straight smile, but for those who aren’t, there are options. At Jeffrey B. LaMura, DDS, we have comfortable treatments for repositioning your teeth and improving the appearance of your smile. Call today for a smile assessment to find which option is best for your teeth.
It’s possible to get a straighter smile without traditional wires and brackets with Invisalign. The Invisalign system uses a series of clear plastic aligners to gently, but effectively, reposition your teeth. These aligners are custom made with digital images and impressions of your mouth, ensuring a comfortable fit. Every two weeks or so, you’ll swap aligners to a new set, which continue the progress of repositioning.
Treatment can take anywhere from 9 to 18 months, but most patients experience positive results between twelve and 15 months. You’ll need to wear your aligners for 23 hours each day, only removing them to eat, drink, and clean your teeth. However, since they’re removable, there are no restrictions on what you can eat, and cleaning your teeth is easier than traditional orthodontic options. You can brush and floss like normal. And the best part, Invisalign aligners are virtually undetectable when worn, so the world doesn’t have to know you’re straightening your smile. Dr. LaMura offers the treatment to both teens and adults.
If a straighter smile in as little time as possible is on your radar, consider Six Month Smiles. Primarily cosmetic, this treatment focuses on the overall aesthetic of your teeth instead of repositioning your bite, which is why the process can be done so quickly. These innovative orthodontics for adults combine the workings of traditional braces with modern, appearance-friendly details to straighten your teeth discreetly. Six Month Smiles uses clear brackets with tooth-colored wires to reposition the teeth that show whenever you smile. Any of our patients who opt for Six Month Smiles treatment receive free smile whitening and a water flosser!
