The word “braces” often conjures negative, unsightly images of metal wires and crowded smiles. However, at our office, we want our patients to know that straightening your smile doesn’t have to be a long, embarrassing process. At Forest North Dental, we offer several orthodontic options in Lake Forest, Illinois that are virtually invisible and comfortable.
What are Clear Braces?
Invisible braces simply refer to any type of orthodontics that employs clear plastic or unnoticeable material that is not as distracting as traditional metal wires. These appliances are often just as effective as metal braces and yet offer our patients the convenience of straightening their teeth without anyone else knowing.
Why Choose Clear Braces?
Your smile is your most influential asset. This being said, we want you to always be proud of your smile, even during orthodontic treatment. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to smile confidently if you are sporting a mouth full of metal wires. Why choose traditional braces when you have options that are much more discreet and less embarrassing?
Our orthodontic options are much more cosmetic in nature and allow patients to smile confidently throughout the entire process of straightening their teeth. This increases their confidence and their chances of achieving a straighter smile. Trust our convenient orthodontic procedures in Lake Forest, IL for a straighter, more esthetic smile in no time!
At Forest North Dental, we offer our patients two types of clear braces in Lake Forest. We offer Invisalign and Six Month Smiles for patients who want to straighten their teeth but are unwilling to get traditional braces.
This modern advancement in orthodontics relies on a customized series of aligners. These aligners are made from clear plastic, are removable and comfortable. Because they are removable, patients can remove them to eat, brush and floss regularly. This means that there is no need to change your diet and keeping your teeth and mouth healthy is not difficult.
Every two weeks or so, the patient switches to a new, tighter aligner so that your teeth are continually shifting into correct alignment. This option is often the same price as traditional braces and patients can expect to achieve a straight smile in about the same time as traditional braces as well.
Six Month Smiles
This option employs the same brackets system as traditional braces. However, the braces are structured from clear material for braces that are much less noticeable. This system is most noted for its ability to straighten teeth in less than half the time as other teeth straightening options. The secret lies in the unique clear braces that focus primarily on straightening the teeth that show when you smile.
Because Six Month Smiles works on a smaller number of teeth, it is generally more comfortable, provides faster treatment and ensures the ease of practicing healthy oral hygiene habits. The results of this procedure are very predictable and appointments with Dr. Rosenblatt to tighten the braces are quick, easy and comfortable. Because of the shorter length of time required to straighten teeth, this method is usually less expensive than Invisalign, aligner therapy or traditional braces.
