Adult Braces | Invisalign® Elite Provider | TLC for Smiles

Adult braces

You never outgrow the benefits of a straight smile. Increased confidence, healthier teeth, a beautiful first impression. With highly customized orthodontic technology, adult braces are more effective than ever.

 

Metal braces

Some adults prefer traditional metal brackets. You may be surprised at how small and comfortable our braces appear and feel. Orthodontic technology is always improving, and that includes traditional metal braces. With durable metal brackets and wires, your orthodontist will gradually guide your teeth into alignment, addressing issues such as crooked teeth, crowding, and gaps.

Ceramic braces

Some patients are worried about how braces will look. In their minds, all they can see are the bulky brackets and wires (even headgear) from their childhood memories. Luckily, orthodontics have come a long way in the past several years. At TLC for Smiles, we use ceramic braces, which are made of natural white or tooth-colored material. These are smaller and more discreet than metal braces, and our adult patients are generally very pleased with how simple and inconspicuous they are.

Are braces right
for me?

As an adult, you may be wondering if braces are an option for you. There are a wide variety of treatment options available for our adult patients, including ceramic braces, metal braces, and Invisalign® clear aligners. Our adult patients have experienced great results with all three of these options. When you come in for an initial consultation, our orthodontist will be able to give you personalized recommendations as well as answer any questions you have about adult treatment plans.

Invisalign®

The Invisalign® system offers a nearly invisible solution for straightening adult teeth. As an adult professional, busy parent, or active individual, Invisalign® clear aligners may be a great option for you. This revolutionary treatment uses 3D iTero scanning technology to form a perfect model of your mouth which your orthodontist will use to design a series of 100% customized aligners. These will be interchanged throughout your treatment to guide your smile into its best possible version.

  • Improved confidence and self-esteem You’re never too old to enjoy a beautiful smile. Straight teeth can help you to feel better about yourself, and create great first impressions. It’s never too late to start your smile journey.
