At Newman Springs Dental Care, our Lincroft NJ dental office can help you achieve a healthier, better-looking smile right away. It used to be that if you had crooked, crowded, or gapped teeth, you would have needed to wear conventional braces for two years or longer. That’s no longer the case.

To make it an easy transformation process for you, we’re now offering short-term orthodontics like Six Month Smiles and Invisalign. Keep reading to hear more about them and then be sure to call us at 732-352-3903 to request your consultation.

Six Month Smiles Works Fast

We are proud to feature Six Month Smiles as a system that can be employed to help patients who suffer from having mildly crooked teeth. This might surprise you (not really) but it is called Six Month Smiles because it takes only about six months to see stunning results.

While it does require braces to correct your teeth, these brackets and wires are tooth-colored, which allows them to blend in with your natural smile.
Six Months Smiles does not get into major overhauls. Instead it helps rearrange the teeth at the front of your mouth (the main teeth displayed whenever you smile). We would not recommend this treatment for patients with bite issues or more severe alignment problems.

That said, there are many people out there who are candidates for Six Month Smiles who should not need to wear traditional braces. Maybe you are one of them!

Invisalign Clearly Has A Lot To Offer

Invisalign is another short-term orthodontic system. It only takes 12 to 18 months to wrap up. And as opposed to classic braces or even Six Month Smiles, Invisalign does not use standard braces at all.

Rather, Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic aligners that are designed to gradually and gently nudge your teeth into a suitable location. The aligners are pretty much invisible and will not impact your speech at all, so it’s more than likely that no one will ever know what you’re up to, unless you want to clue them in.

The invisibility factor is a big part of the reason it’s become so popular. It goes without saying that most adults and many teenagers who have mildly crooked teeth don’t really want to spend any lengthy period of time harnessed to braces.

Another huge advantage to the Invisalign program is that the aligners can be removed at anytime that makes sense (like at dinner time). Take note, though, that you should wear the appliance for at least 20 hours a day to keep things on schedule.

Call Today For Straighter Teeth

Having a nice uniform smile will make you look amazing and feel great about yourself. But having straighter teeth also makes it easier to keep your mouth clean, which makes us dentists happy.

This is because all that cavity-causing bacteria will have fewer places to hide. Plus, no longer having crooked teeth or an off-balanced bite will eliminate any extra wear and tear on your teeth, thus decreasing the chances of breaks or fractures.

So, if you are struggling with crooked teeth, crowded, or gapped teeth, you’ll want to head over to our office so that we can begin to use the short-term orthodontics methods described above to quickly correct your smile.
