At Schon Dental in Springfield, IL, our team is committed to crafting healthy, beautiful smiles for each individual patient. We use the most innovative, proven dental advancements, in a comfortable and welcoming environment. Through the process, we develop long-term relationships with our orthodontic patients and celebrate with them at the time their treatment course is complete and their smile is perfectly straightened.
With today’s dental technology, corrective dentistry (orthodontics) is a lot more effective, and the process is much faster than in the past. For those patients who have lived with imperfect teeth because they don’t want to invest a lot of money or time, or are turned off by traditional braces, there are now much better orthodontic solutions available. Our orthodontists in Springfield, IL offer patients two popular options for teeth straightening: Invisalign clear aligner trays and Six Month Smiles, braces for modern wearers.
Interested Schon Dental patients receive a free Invisalign consultation. These discreet, clear aligner trays correct misalignment issues and straighten teeth comfortably. The invisible plastic trays are custom-fit for each patient and are worn over teeth to gradually shift them into the desired position. With Invisalign, there are no food restrictions because the clear aligners are removable, unlike traditional braces, and users can easily brush and floss their teeth.
Another more aesthetically pleasing orthodontic solution is 6 Month Smiles. A type of clear braces, 6 Month Smiles shifts and straightens imperfect teeth quickly. The process is much like that of traditional braces, with fixed brackets worn with elastics that are not removed throughout the treatment course. Like Invisalign, these discreet braces are very effective at correcting teeth alignment issues fast. In fact, 6 Month Smiles is an even faster treatment method and costs less than Invisalign.
If you’re interested in correcting your smile with any of our orthodontic treatments, give our Springfield office a call! Our Springfield orthodontists would be happy to assess your smile to see which treatment is best for you.
