Having straight teeth can make a difference in your daily life.
It can give you a boost of confidence when meeting new people. It also means you have one less thing to worry about in work and personal situations.
For better or worse, it also can affect the initial impression you make on other people. Surveys have shown that people who have straight smiles are more likely to be considered friendly, intelligent, and trustworthy. Those are all valuable traits whether you are going on a date or meeting a possible client or customer.
Unfortunately, traditional orthodontic care can sometimes take years to complete. There are ways to change your smile in less time, however, and we offer two great options for doing that at our offices in Fort Myers and Naples, FL.
Make A Change In Half A Year
For patients who are looking to see results in less time, Six Month Smiles can be an excellent option. These braces use clear brackets and wires, which also makes them less noticeable than traditional braces.
But if they still use brackets and wires, how are they different from standard orthodontic treatment. The difference is the focus.
With standard braces, you could be moving all your teeth. This can include the molars (the heavier, bigger teeth in the back of your mouth). This is done when aesthetics are only part of the reason for repositioning your teeth.
Patients who are only interested in making cosmetic improvements to their teeth may prefer Six Month Smiles. This system only seeks to reposition your most visible teeth. By prioritizing those teeth, you can get to your goal in less time (about six months, give or take a few months depending on your specific situation).
Get In the ‘Fast’ Lane
If six months still seems like too long to wait for your new smile, then you may want to ask about Fastbraces. This orthodontic system can transform your smile in as little as 120 days.
This treatment has some unique features, starting with its triangular brackets. The shape of the brackets affects how pressure is applied to your teeth. As a result, you can reposition the crowns and the roots of your teeth at the same time. With traditional braces, this is done in stages.
Start Soon To See Your New Smile
You can’t cross the finish line if you never start the race. Likewise, you can complete your short-term orthodontic care if you never begin.
Dr. Hoop and the rest of our team at Total Dental Solutions For Adults want you to be happy with your smile. By straightening your teeth with Six Month Smiles or Fastbraces, you can feel better about your teeth in less time.
