A straight smile is desirable both for aesthetics and your oral health. With our dental treatments at Horizon Dental Care, we offer our patients comfortable, convenient orthodontic solutions to get the straight, healthy smile they desire. Straightening teeth do not need to be painful or embarrassing. With advanced treatments, you can straighten your smile without the need for metal braces. Our offices offer the following orthodontic treatments to improve your smile:
Straight Smiles Without Traditional Braces
Metal braces can effectively straighten teeth, but they do come with many drawbacks. Treatment can take up to two years, and the metal brackets are very noticeable on your teeth. One option to avoid braces altogether is clear aligners. Both Invisalign and ClearCorrect are clear aligner orthodontics that do not use brackets, wires or bands to straighten your smile. Clear aligners fit over your teeth and can be removed when you eat or perform your oral hygiene. They are almost invisible, making them a discreet and comfortable option for teens and adults needing orthodontic treatment.
Another option we offer is Six Month Smiles. This orthodontic treatment is technically braces but with a shorter treatment time and clear brackets. Six Month Smiles is for adults wanting to aesthetically change their smile through orthodontics. The clear braces only focus on straightening the visible teeth, which shortens the treatment time to about six months. The quick results make this a popular option for those who just want to improve the appearance of gapped or crooked teeth without changing their bite alignment.
At Horizon Dental Care, we believe in giving our patients options when it comes to improving the appearance and health of their smiles. For orthodontic care, we offer a few different treatments to give you a choice to fit your needs and budget. Our offices accept many dental insurance plans, and we have financing available.
