Affordable and Convenient Orthodontic Options for Adults

Not Your Mamma&rsquos Braces

Many of us grew up with the idea that the only solution was to endure years of uncomfortable, traditional braces. Modern treatments like Six Month Smiles braces and Clear Correct ® systems offered at NELA Dental have completely changed the way we address the problem of misaligned teeth. Both are efficient and safe solutions for transforming your smile and boosting your self-confidence.

Invisible Correction

Clear Correct ® aligners can alleviate problems with crowding, spacing, and uneven teeth. Treatment with Clear Correct ® involves a series of clear, custom-made aligners that are virtually invisible. You will receive a series of aligner trays that you will change at two-week intervals to gently reposition your teeth into correct alignment. Clear Correct ® aligners are made of a smooth, plastic material that is comfortable and eliminates irritation. The aligners are removable and designed to be taken out while eating, brushing, and flossing. If you play contact sports Clear Correct ® trays can be removed, allowing you to wear a protective mouth guard. Treatment times vary by individual, but results are typically achieved in about 12 months for adults.

Smile Big in Six Months?

Treatment with Six Month Smiles braces is similar to that of conventional adult orthodontics, but they have one major difference. Traditional long-term orthodontics are designed to perfect the patient's dental bite. However, tooth alignment issues for many adults are not related to problems with their dental bite. Six Month Smiles braces have significantly shorter treatment times because the goal is not to alter the patient's bite, only straighten the visible teeth. Six Month Smiles treatment focuses only on the teeth that show when you smile. The braces do not interfere with your appearance or day-to-day life. The clear brackets and tooth colored wires will gently reposition your teeth without affecting appearance. Treatment with Six Month Smiles braces is generally more affordable than traditional braces or veneers. Desired results are usually achieved in about four to nine months, with an average treatment time of six months.
