Straighten Your Teeth for a Healthy Smile

Misaligned teeth are more than just a cosmetic issue — they can actually impact your health in a variety of ways. Many adults who need orthodontic treatment tend to avoid it because they don’t want to wear metal braces.

Thankfully, advancements in technology have produced more convenient and less invasive treatment options. Explore our guide to learn how you can benefit.

Invisalign® Clear Aligners

Invisalign uses clear, removable aligners to straighten your teeth. The thermoplastic material is nearly invisible so you don’t have to feel self-conscious when you smile. You also won’t have to deal with the hassle of food crumbs getting stuck in your wires, as you would with braces.

One of the biggest advantages of Invisalign treatment is that you can eat and drink without restrictions. As long as you remove your aligners first, you can enjoy all your favorite foods and beverages. Just make sure that you’re wearing your aligners for at least 20 hours per day.

As if all this weren’t convenient enough, Invisalign straightens your teeth up to two times faster than metal braces. The Invisalign technology will even allow you to see what your final results will look like before you begin treatment. Depending on your case, your full treatment time will likely range from 9 to 15 months.

Six Month Smiles

Six Month Smiles offers a new kind of braces with thin wires and clear brackets. This allows for a more discreet appearance and less discomfort than traditional braces. Designed to straighten your teeth in 6 to 9 months, these low-force braces are fast and virtually pain-free.

Six Month Smiles is an ideal option for patients who are 16 or older. Dr. Kong will evaluate your case to determine if this treatment is right for you. It’s also generally more affordable than traditional braces due to the shortened treating time.
