Greenville, South Carolina residents ask, “Are there options for adult braces?”
While at its core, cosmetic dentistry is simply about improving the aesthetics of the smile, for those who have undergone cosmetic procedures; it’s really about so much more. Being embarrassed by your smile, whether it’s due to alignment, missing teeth, or discoloration, can be very difficult to cope with. A skilled dentist such as Dr. Palmer has years of experience performing smile makeovers. With the help of our team, he can analyze your teeth and recommend treatments to maximize your investment and achieve a show stopping smile.
The procedures available with our smile makeovers can address a number of concerns. Some patients need to change the shape, length, or width of the teeth. Others may have issues with alignment or spacing. And some are simply dealing with discoloration. One of the most common concerns among our adult patients is orthodontic treatment. While many adults want to see their teeth straighter, most do not want to spend years in traditional braces. This is why we’re happy to offer Invisalign clear braces.
The Invisalign Difference
While traditional braces remain a relevant and effective way to straighten teeth, many older patients and adults are deterred by the metal brackets and wires. Invisalign is a great alternative that utilizes a system of clear plastic aligner trays. The trays are swapped out every two weeks in order to gently move the teeth into proper alignment. In addition to the absence of brackets and wires, one of the biggest advantages to Invisalign is the removable trays. Patients are free to enjoy their favorite foods and brush and floss teeth properly before putting the aligners back in place. While this is a huge benefit, Dr. Palmer encourages patients to wear the aligners for about 22 hours a day. Compliance is vital to success of the treatment.
