Orthodontic treatment has changed dramatically in recent decades. However, many adults think they are past the point in their lives where straightening their crooked teeth makes sense.

But everyone deserves a great smile, regardless of their age. And if you’re thinking, “There’s no way I am going to spend years with a mouth full of metal braces,” you are in luck because today we can help you achieve a straighter smile in a matter of months, not years!

State-of-the-art technology and advances in the materials we use have resulted in new methods for dealing with tooth misalignment in adults. At Azalea Dental, we offer two of the most popular treatments – clear plastic aligners and Six Month Smiles.

Clear Plastic Aligners

If you are an adult, treatment with clear plastic aligners is one of the most efficient and comfortable ways to straighten your teeth and get the smile you want. Clear aligners offer many benefits for adults:

  • The smooth plastic material used is comfortable to wear
  • Clear aligners are discreet – no one has to know you’re having treatment.
  • You can remove the aligners to eat, brush, and floss
  • Treatment for adults typically takes about a year.

Six Month Smiles

Another great option for adults is Six Month Smiles. This is an esthetic orthodontic because it is designed to move only the teeth that show when you smile. Since we aren’t trying to correct bite problems as traditional orthodontics are designed to do, treatment usually takes about six months.

Six Month Smiles uses tooth-colored wires and clear brackets that guide your teeth gently into a more esthetic appearance.
