We can’t explain exactly why this happens, but we’ve seen it many times.
When a patient finishes an orthodontic care and sees his or her new smile for the first time, there’s just something that changes. It’s not just the physical appearance of that patient’s smile.
Seeing that smile often seems to give patients a renewed sense of confidence as well. To truly understand it, you need to experience it for yourself.
If you are all-too-aware of the things you would like to change about your smile — gaps between your teeth, crooked teeth, an overbite — then we want to help you enjoy the feelings we described above.
At Highlands Ranch Smiles, we offer Invisalign® and Six Month Smiles. By talking to one of our dentists, we can help you figure out which treatment could give you more confidence in your smile.
Improving Your Smile With Orthodontics
Both Invisalign and Six Month Smiles are considered orthodontic treatments. This means they are part of our cosmetic dentistry as well.
When you are finished with either one, you should see a noticeable difference in the appearance of your teeth. So, what can they do?
As we hinted at above, both of these options can change the position of your teeth to create smiles that look straight and evenly spaced.
If you have visible gaps between your teeth that you would like to close, we can help you with that. If you have teeth that appear to be pushed too close together, we can help with that, too.
And if you have teeth that are crooked, we can help you get them in line.
These orthodontic options also can be used to correct bite issues such as overbites, underbites, open bites, and crossbites.
So which one is better for you: Six Month Smiles or Invisalign? The best way to know is to visit with our dentists in Highlands Ranch, CO.
If Saving Time Is More Important To You
There’s nothing wrong with wanting to improve your smile. There’s a reason cosmetic dentistry is so popular. It’s why so many patients ask about teeth whitening, veneers, and more on a daily basis.
The problem many people have with traditional braces is that they can take two years or more to clean up your smile. Six Months Smiles can seriously reduce the time it takes to transform your teeth.
Six Months Smiles is a type of braces, but it is different in an important way. This treatment only moves the teeth at the front of your mouth. Because these teeth are smaller and lighter than the teeth in the back of your mouth, they can be repositioned in less time.
And since these teeth are the most visible, moving them can make a huge impact on your smile. If your focus is making cosmetic improvements, then why not try an orthodontic option designed to do just that.
That’s what Six Month Smiles can do for you.
If Being Discreet Is More Important To You
You can get clear brackets with Six Month Smiles or traditional braces. We will grant you that these are less noticeable than metal braces … but they aren’t invisible.
Invisalign may be a better option if you feel as self-conscious about wearing braces as you do about your smile. We’ve found this is particularly important for many adults, although Invisalign can work for teens as well.
Let’s say you have a job, one that you hope will become a career. If it involves a lot of face-to-face interaction with coworkers, clients, or customers, then you may not feel comfortable sitting down with brackets and wires on your teeth. You may not want anything that could distract from what you are trying to say.
Invisalign can help. This system’s clear aligners blend in when they are placed over your teeth. They are much more likely to go unnoticed during an in-person meeting or video chat. You can feel comfortable wearing your aligners in personal situations as well, whether it’s a social gathering or a first date.
If you are looking for a discreet way to change your smile, Invisalign may be the better option for you.
