As a teen or adult, straightening crooked teeth can help improve your smile’s look and your overall confidence, but you might hesitate at the prospect of wearing traditional metal braces for a couple of years. The good news is that, with our six months braces system, you can not only correct misalignment in less time than traditional braces, but in a much more discreet fashion, as well. Using the innovative PowerProx system, we can help you enjoy the benefits of a straighter smile without the need for conspicuous metal brackets and wires.
PowerProx Six Month Braces
The difference between PowerProx Six Months Braces and the more conventional variety is that the system focuses on the cosmetic aspect of your smile by realigning the most visible of your teeth. Instead of metal, six months braces consist of tooth-colored brackets and nearly-invisible memory wire.
Designed to blend in with your smile rather than clash against it, PowerProx braces can restore the symmetry of your smile without drawing unwanted attention to your orthodontic treatment. Best of all, the treatment can be completed in only six months, compared to the one or two years that traditional orthodontics may require.
Is PowerProx Right for You?
If your teeth are crowded, gapped, or crooked, and you’re old enough for you jawbone and permanent teeth to have fully formed, then PowerProx Six Months Braces may be the best option. However, if your malocclusion (bite misalignment) is caused by a serious underlying condition, or if your dental ridges are crooked enough to require more extensive orthodontic treatment, then we may recommend a more appropriate procedure.
