Teeth straightening for the modern world
We understand the hesitancy many patients face when deciding to straighten their teeth – when the only option for orthodontics in the past has been unsightly, uncomfortable metal braces that only add insult to injury. At Coastal Cosmetic Family Dentistry®, we believe that you should be rewarded for deciding to straighten your teeth – not punished. That’s why our doctors are trained in both short term and discreet orthodontics so our patients can let their smile shine through treatment.
Our Invisalign® patients LOVE not only their results, but they love Invisalign® all the way through treatment. Invisalign® uses a series of custom-made, clear plastic aligners to apply pressure and gently shift teeth into their desired position. Invisalign® aligners will be swapped out for the next set every few weeks, and are removable so you can maintain optimum oral hygiene and continue to enjoy your favorite foods during treatment.
What’s the best part about Invisalign®? They’re virtually invisible to the naked eye – no one will know you are straightening your teeth. All they will be able to see is your smile transforming – whether or not you tell them it’s Invisalign® is up to you.
Six Month Smiles®
Six Month Smiles® is a modern spin on traditional orthodontics. By focusing on only the teeth that show when you smile, Six Month Smiles® can drastically improve the look of your smile in a short amount of time – average treatment times are only six months, as opposed to several years with traditional braces. Six Month Smiles® uses clear brackets and micro-wires to make them much more discreet, so you can maintain your smile and sense of confidence throughout treatment.
Why straighten teeth?
The cosmetic benefits of straightening your teeth are obvious. Straightening your teeth will drastically improve your outward appearance, which boosts your self-esteem and confidence. Aside from cosmetics, there are actually health benefits to having a straight smile. Teeth that are properly aligned are easier to keep clean, and gums fit better around the teeth when they are straight. If you’re on the fence about orthodontics, don’t do it just for appearances, do it for your oral health!
