Having crooked teeth can ruin your smile. If you show your crooked smile to someone you are associating with, it can change the way they look at you. A great example of this would be if you are in a job interview and show your potential boss your crooked smile. Even though it sounds shallow, a potential employer could look at you as a lesser candidate for the job if you have an unattractive smile. A crooked smile can affect you negatively in all areas of life, and the effect it could have on your job prospects is just one example.
At Clear Lake Dental Care, we know the disadvantages that having a crooked smile carries with it. That is why we offer several options in the world of orthodontics that include short-term orthodontics, specifically Six Month Smiles and Invisalign®. We have confidence that any one of these options will leave you with a fantastic smile that you can show off for years to come!
Traditional forms of orthodontics such as metal braces are known to take years to get your teeth into the desired straight position. With short-term orthodontics, you will no longer have to wait years to see your straight smile. The types of short-term orthodontics that we offer are different but are both very effective. These include Six Month Smiles and Invisalign® , and they are both known for their smile-changing ability because either one will leave you with a beautiful smile.
Invisalign® Clear Braces
Invisalign® clear braces have become a household name in the world of orthodontics because they are widely known as the main alternative to traditional metal braces. They work using retainer-like clear aligners that slowly straighten your smile. They not only straighten your smile, but they also do it without giving you a metal smile!
Another great advantage that Invisalign has over the competition is that the clear aligners are removable! Though you will be required to wear them for at least 22 hours a day, you will be able to remove them so you can comfortably eat and clean your teeth after eating. Gone are the days of having food caught in your brackets when you straighten your teeth with Invisalign® !
Six Month Smiles
Six Month Smiles take what traditional metal braces did and put a twist on the process to make the treatment last an average of only six months. While Six month Smiles still use brackets and wires, they are tooth-colored instead of silver – and they will straighten your smile faster so you won’t have to deal with the brackets and wires as long as you would if you had traditional metal braces. Why would you put yourself through months of longer treatment to have straight teeth when you can come to Clear Lake Dental Care and have your teeth straightened using one of our short-term orthodontic options? We want to give you the perfect smile you’ve always dreamed about!
