A great smile is important to your self-confidence. Many dental patients report that when they feel better about their smile, they smile brighter and more often. However, some patients are concerned about taking the steps they need to improve their smile, especially if that treatment includes orthodontics. In the past, orthodontic treatment has included bulky metal brackets, sharp wires, and tiny rubber bands. The braces were painful, took several years to make a difference, and were embarrassing to adults who were trying to improve their smile.
However, patients of Dr. Charles Martin of the Richmond Smile Center are thrilled to find out that they now have other options. Orthodontic technology has changed a great deal in recent years, giving patients new options when it comes to teeth straightening options. Now with treatments such as Invisalign, Fast Braces and Six Month smiles patients can change their smile faster or with appliances that are far less visible.
Invisalign is a popular choice among adult patients. The clear alignment trays gently shift the teeth into their proper position. They are invisible enough that patients feel confident speaking or in professional and social situations. Further, the trays are removable for eating and brushing. This means patients don't have to give up their favorite foods or beverages and they can keep their smile healthier with better oral care during treatment.
Fast Braces and Six Month Smile are perfect for the patient who wants to improve their smile but doesn't want to spend years doing it. Each solution uses a special technology to move the teeth in a quicker and more efficient manner. Now patients don't have to spend years waiting for their perfect smile, they can achieve it in as little as a few months.
