For teenagers and adults alike, the idea of wearing braces for a couple of years is a major reason to avoid straightening their smiles. The idea of having to bear the discomfort and embarrassment of a long course of treatment results in many patients seeking cosmetic alternatives that provide quicker solutions, but with a focus solely on the front teeth that are visible when you smile.
While these kinds of treatments are effective in creating a nice looking smile, they don’t address the other serious issues that braces can correct, like a misaligned bite or pain caused by overcrowding and shifted teeth. You could say that these rapid treatments address the symptoms without providing a cure! Most rapid orthodontic solutions say that they can straighten your smile in six to nine months, but this is only because they focus on those front four to six teeth.
What’s My Alternative?
At Donaldson 3D Orthodontics, we’ve long believed in providing “amazing smiles fast” without compromising proper teeth alignment for aesthetics. Using advanced technology and treatment methods, we can get you a smile that is truly correct in only nine months to a year! Our amazingly fast smiles won’t just straighten those front few teeth that everyone sees – we’ll do the whole thing!
Our 3D orthodontics approach is able to perfectly model your treatment to maximize results and minimize treatment time. Using a series of 3D scans and computer software that can outline a treatment plan that will be used to craft custom brackets and wires optimized for your mouth, your braces will be effective because they’re built just for you!
Our Rapid Orthodontic Solutions
Fast orthodontics are a great idea, but what about not wanting to wear uncomfortable and highly visible wires and brackets? We have you covered there, too! We also offer more standard solutions but with advanced materials to help accelerate your treatment!
- Depending on the severity of your misalignment, we can offer Invisalign as a great alternative to traditional braces! These invisible plastic aligners are worn 22 hours out of the day but are removed when you eat and brush your teeth. You’ll get a straight smile without anyone even knowing!
- Ceramic brackets for traditional braces are made to match the color of your teeth, making them far less visible. It’ll be hard for anyone to notice you’re wearing them! Ceramic brackets are just as effective as metal ones but with the added benefit of being unnoticeable!
- We still offer metal brackets, but ours are state-of-the-art self-ligating brackets! This means there’s no rubber band, cutting down on the size and visibility! These super-efficient brackets simply hold the wire in place using a small door-like clasp! These brackets are faster to apply, meaning that you’ll be in and out of our office in record time!
- Heat-activated nickel titanium wires allow us to shape your braces wires to reach misaligned teeth that would be difficult and painful to do otherwise! When chilled, our wires become as flexible as a wet noodle, and once placed in your mouth, they’ll gradually warm back up and begin pulling your teeth into their ideal position!
Orthodontic treatments don’t need to take years to get you a beautiful and functional smile! We’ve treated countless patients in far less time than they thought possible, and we’re confident we can do the same for you! The severity of your alignment needs will affect the length of your treatment, but we’ll work hard to perfect your smile in record time!
