Duarte patients ask, what are Clear Braces?
Across the country, people are learning that the traditional method of orthodontics is quickly being replaced by new technology and braces that are barely noticeable to friends, family, and coworkers. Most often all people know about these new types of orthodontic treatments is that they include clear braces.
While often this is enough information to initiate the conversation with their dentist, there are still many questions.
Dr. Brianne Luu of Gentle Care Dentistry helps patients in and around Duarte achieve the happy, healthy, straight smiles they’ve longed for in a shorter period with far less embarrassment than traditional braces bring. Six Month Smiles is a new alternative to braces that replaces the traditional braces with clear brackets and wires. The braces are shaped slightly differently than traditional brackets, which help the teeth shift faster, but still gently and safely. Additionally, they focus most on the front teeth, the teeth that are most noticeable. Most people achieve their perfect smile in four to nine months.
Unlike other treatments that offer clear aligners, the Six Month Smile system can be adjusted by Dr. Luu along the way. Additionally because the braces are attached to the teeth, they are non-removable. This makes compliance an afterthought; you don’t have to remember to put them back in, if you can’t take them out. Having a smile you can be proud of is important to your self-esteem. Many people believe that their smile is their most important feature and when it doesn’t look its best, you don’t feel your best. Dr. Luu understands that strong self-esteem is important to overall health and wellness. She will work with you to determine the best treatment method to give you the results you want.
