Short Term Cosmetic Orthodontics: 3 Procedures That Result In Quality Smiles

For the 32% of people who are concerned by the look of their teeth, quality dental care is incredibly important. Short term cosmetic orthodontics can drastically improve the quality of a your teeth and give your smile a much-needed overhaul — so long as you’re working with an experienced dental care professional.

Whether you’re just hoping to correct some crooked teeth, address a toothache, or completely revamp your smile, cosmetic dentistry is your best bet. Here are some of the short term cosmetic orthodontics treatments that are available for you to consider:

  • Dental Veneers — One of the most popular cosmetic dentistry options, dental veneers have been used for nearly 30 years. These are thin covering that are bonded to your natural teeth that are used to correct qualities of your natural teeth like discoloration, major gaps, or rotated teeth.
  • Six Month Smiles — This is another popular cosmetic dentistry option that can drastically improve crooked, crowded, or gapped teeth. Many people are skeptical about this type of procedure because they don’t want braces. Six Month Smiles involve using clear braces, however, so patients don’t have to worry about how their teeth will look with them on. This orthopedic procedure involves using brakes and wire systems that is virtually invisible. Clear brackets and light, white wires will straighten your smile much faster than other procedures. Typically, this process can correct your smile anywhere from four to nine months after treatment begins.
  • ClearCorrect — This is another clear aligner system treatment that can result in an improved smile. Keep in mind, however, clear aligners requires much more time compared to Six Month Smiles because each patient is required to stick to a strict compliance so they wear the ClearCorrect retainer at least 23 hours a day.
