Contrary to popular belief, orthodontic treatment can do much more than fix gaps and crooked teeth. There are all sorts of valuable, lasting benefits to straightening your smile, including making it easier to brush and floss, strengthening your natural bite, and giving your everyday sense of self-esteem a much-needed boost. At White Clay Dental Associates, we’re happy to offer two modern, adult-friendly services that transcend the traditional model of metal braces. Please contact us today in Newark, DE if you have any questions for Dr. Bond and Dr. Ganfield or if you’re ready to schedule an orthodontic consultation.
Six Month Smiles is a popular cosmetic braces system that lets patients straighten their teeth in only half a year. Imagine having straighter teeth in time for your next cleaning and exam. With Six Month Smiles, it’s absolutely possible! This cosmetic solution uses clear brackets and tooth-colored wires to gently correct misaligned teeth. More specifically, this system uses ceramic brackets that are translucent. As a result, they blend in with your smile's natural color.
Invisalign is a clear braces system for adults and teens. By applying focused pressure on different parts of the teeth throughout the treatment, its smooth plastic aligners can improve the positions of teeth that are gapped or crowded as well as correct an overbite, underbite, or crossbite. Invisalign aligners are removable, so you don’t have to modify your diet or cleaning techniques during treatment. A subtle treatment that can be completed faster than traditional braces, Invisalign is the orthodontic alternative patients have been waiting for.
