Welcome to Designer Smiles Orthodontics, where we offer one of the most efficient orthodontic tools - traditional braces. These braces, featuring metal or ceramic brackets connected by wires and tiny rubber bands or elastics, are attached to your teeth. Regular adjustments with our doctors ensure these components work together to gently apply pressure to your teeth, gradually moving them into the desired position.
Braces in Cropwell are an excellent choice for both simple and complex teeth issues. They are also a cost-effective option for patients on a budget. Braces can sometimes work faster at closing gaps and aligning teeth than other options, potentially reducing overall treatment time. This is because braces don't require some of the more complicated technology or expensive equipment that newer treatments might need.
Invisalign in Cropwell
At Designer Smiles Orthodontics, we offer the Invisalign system, a popular and modern alternative to traditional braces. Invisalign uses clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible and designed to fit snugly over your teeth. These aligners gradually move your teeth into alignment, with a new set typically provided every 1-2 weeks.
For optimal results, it's crucial to wear your Invisalign aligners for 20-22 hours per day. While Invisalign is highly effective for correcting many common orthodontic issues, it may not be suitable for especially complex cases. A free consultation at our office can help determine your eligibility for Invisalign.
