Do you find that you hide your smile because your teeth are misaligned and crooked? If so, you may feel that traditional metal and wire braces are the only solution. Fortunately, patients at Kurz Family Dentistry in Dacula, GA have two amazing choices. They can choose the use of ClearCorrect and Six Month Smiles rather than traditional braces. As your preferred general dentist, our office is happy to book a consultation with you and help you discover the ideal solution.
The Differences Between Clear Correct and Six Month Smiles
Millions of people around the world have had their teeth straightened without anyone knowing they were doing it thanks to the invention of invisible aligners. ClearCorrect is one such system. It uses customized, removable trays that are designed to slip over your teeth and slowly shift them into proper alignment. You will visit our dental office to find out if you are a good candidate, and if so, we make special molds and images of your teeth, and then a lab prepares a series of aligners designed to put your teeth into optimal positions.
You switch aligners every two weeks or so, making visits to the dentist office as needed. You take out the aligners to eat and drink as well as to properly clean your teeth, and in as little as a year’s time you can have that picture perfect smile.
There are also Six Month Smiles
Clear Correct and Six Month Smiles which use tooth colored braces to rapidly re-align the teeth. They are short-term braces that work fast to straighten your teeth – typically taking only six months to reach your goal. Traditional braces, on the other hand, can take up to two years or more, and will be plain to see at all times. When you visit our dental office to discuss either option, our general dentist is going to review your needs, and if you want fast results that are more discreet, it could be that the six month treatment is ideal.
Keep in mind that not everyone is the perfect candidate for Clear Correct or Six Month Smiles. While both are able to address certain issues, they may not be able to handle more severe or complex problems. If your dental issues include:
- Mild to moderate misalignment or crookedness
You could be an ideal candidate. Don’t let fear of braces hold you back from that perfectly aligned smile you have always wanted. With Six Month Smiles and the clear brackets and tooth colored wires, you may be closer than you think to a straight smile. If you can wait, the ClearCorrect system may be the perfect answer.
