Straight teeth are attractive teeth. They’re also healthier teeth because they’re easier to clean. If you are unhappy with crooked teeth, we can help you straighten them with orthodontics. And we don’t have just one option, we have multiple orthodontic treatments to help you achieve the smile you desire in a way that won’t interfere with your life, matches your style, and fits in your budget.

Six-Month Smiles

Six Month Smiles is a clear braces system that uses proven orthodontic methods and modern materials to deliver results in an average of six months. The process is typically more affordable than metal braces, veneers or other alignment methods. If you have avoided metal braces because you have not wanted to wear them for several years, then 6 Month Smiles can correct your smile in a fraction of the time.

Invisalign

Invisalign straightens your teeth without wires and brackets, using a clear plastic aligners, similar to teeth whitening trays, but more durable, to gradually move your teeth into position. These can treat most cases that braces can treat, but have many advantages over braces, such as being clear and being removable so that there are no diet restrictions or special cleaning required.

Invisalign is an orthodontic appliance system used to inconspicuously treat crooked and crowded teeth in adults and teens. This modern take on braces features a system of clear aligner trays that are worn at all times with the exception of during meals and when brushing or flossing. The trays are custom fitted to the teeth, making them virtually unnoticeable when laughing, talking, and eating with other people. Patients receive a sequence of trays, each of which is slightly different than the one before. The aligners provide slight resistance to the teeth, forcing them to move into alignment over time. With Invisalign, adults and teens can achieve the smiles they’ve always wanted without feeling self-conscious about the mode of treatment.

Did you know…

wearing Invisalign is in no way as restrictive as traditional braces? Many adults opt for this system not only because it is discreet, but also because there is no need to change your diet to avoid foods that could damage braces. This is because the Invisalign system is free of braces and brackets, instead opting for a removable tray that can be taken out prior to meals. Also, Invisalign fits well into busy Cypress adult schedules, as there is no need to attend frequent visits for wire tightening. Most patients simply change to a new aligner tray every couple of weeks.
