Crooked teeth bringing you down? You have not missed your chance for orthodontics – and you don’t have to wear bulky, metal braces. Our office offers two different types of Orthodontic systems to help you achieve straight teeth and a beautiful smile. A complimentary consultation will allow Dr. Dhingra to determine which option is best for you based on your goals, dental needs, and finances.
- Six Months Smiles (cosmetic braces system)
Six Month Smiles is a modern twist on tried-and-true orthodontics. It has taken the best aspects of braces and modified the treatment to give adults a common-sense cosmetic solution that fits your lifestyle. The average treatment time is only 6 months, and the tooth –colored wires are almost invisible. Six Month Smiles ensures that your appointments are fast and comfortable; you will see Dr. Dhingra every 4 weeks to check the progress of your braces. Six Month Smiles is typically less expensive than traditional braces, aligner therapy, or veneers.
Six Month Smiles places emphasis on cosmetic appearance of your teeth rather than the position of your bite. Discomfort is minimal as your teeth are gently repositioned. No heavy forces are used and the treatment becomes more comfortable day by day. You will be happy how quick and effective the treatment worked for you.
- Invisalign (clear braces)
Invisalign is the perfect option for image-conscious adults and teens who need orthodontics for cosmetic reasons. Dr. Dhingra will assess your case and recommend Invisalign if it’s the right solution for you. Invisalign is a quick, comfortable, and inconspicuous alternative to braces. Dr. Dhingra can fit you with removable orthodontic aligners that will reposition your teeth in roughly one year’s time. Invisalign requires no wires or bands, you can remove them to eat, and they are nearly invisible. The treatment time typically ranges from 9-18 months.
We use 3D imaging to create a detailed custom treatment plan, which is sent to a certified Invisalign laboratory for the fabrication of a custom set of Invisalign aligners. Each aligner is worn for 2 weeks, and at the end of each two week span you’ll move on to the next aligner in your series. Each aligner moves your teeth a little closer to their ideal position. Patients come into the office every 6 weeks to receive their next 3 sets of aligners. Upon completion of treatment, you’ll wear a retainer to maintain your straight beautiful smile.
