Six Month Orthodontics
Most people think that braces are mainly for kids and take 2-4 years. Not anymore! Using tooth coloured brackets and small space age wires, we can straighten your teeth in an average time of 6 months.
Many adults who have had crooked or spaced teeth throughout their life have lost hope. ‘6 Month Braces’ is an easy and affordable way to greatly improve your smile leaving the embarrassment of crooked, crowded and spaced teeth in the past! Many of our patients have a newfound confidence now that they can smile freely. They are no longer ashamed of their appearance. It only takes 6 months.
At Dental Options we are one of the only practices in the country with an Itero scanner. What makes the Itero Digital Scanner different? It scans your teeth and then creates a 3D visual graphic of what your teeth would look like if you decided to straighten them. For patients who are confused about the benefits of orthodontics this service, which is free of charge for them, it is an absolutely fantastic tool in helping patients to make an informed decision.
