Cosmetic Orthodontics in Fayetteville, AR
Are you an adult who want to improve the appearance of your smile? Have you had braces before and now your teeth have started moving again? Do you want a straighter, more attractive smile? We provide cosmetic orthodontics for adults who wish to address these issues.
Attractive, aligned teeth can give you the confidence to speak and smile without concern that your teeth are not as straight or beautiful as they could be. Having confidence in your appearance can help you achieve all you want in life without feeling self-conscious.
At Scott J. Stephens Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we offer options to our adult patients who wish to improve their smiles with cosmetic orthodontics.
Smart Moves Clear Aligners
Often, if the problem is minor, we can correct the alignment of your teeth with a series of simple clear trays (aligners) that are almost undetectable while you are wearing them. They work by gradually moving your teeth – each tray bringing you closer to your ideal smile.
We will take impressions of your teeth and send them to our lab to make your trays. Once you receive them, you will need to wear them for at least twenty-two hours per day to ensure that your treatment progresses properly. You can take them out to eat and for your oral hygiene routine, which helps to make them extremely convenient. Because they are crystal clear, no one will notice you are wearing them. Speaking with them is easy because of their snug fit.
How long your treatment will take depends upon how far your teeth need to move, as well as other biological factors.
Six Month Braces
If you require more extensive tooth movement, we may recommend the traditional brackets and wires. We use clear brackets and tooth-colored wires that are very subtle in their appearance. Usually, amazing results are possible in six months or less!
Dr. Scott Stephens trained with Dr. Rick Depaul, the inventor of the Powerprox Six Month Braces System, and is excited to be able to offer this cosmetic orthodontic service to our patients. At our Fayetteville, AR dental office, we focus on realigning your front teeth for a more pleasing appearance.
Advanced Orthodontic Treatment
Sometimes orthodontic needs are more involved than just making teeth look nice and may require a visit to the orthodontist instead. Bite problems and substantial tooth movement are sometimes best handled by an orthodontic specialist. Luckily, we have several great orthodontists in the area that we can refer to and work with closely. If we feel your case would be better treated by a specialist, we will provide you with the necessary referral.
