Poorly aligned teeth? Think it takes forever for braces to straighten them? Think again. There are many new types of braces available in Alexandria. In some cases, teeth can be straightened in a few months and then, with braces off–a fantastic new smile.
If you are considering straightening your teeth, come into Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry Family Dentistry in Alexandria for an orthodontic consultation. We can discuss the new types of braces. Dr. James Geren, DDS, will explain the pros and cons of each type and recommend the most effective (and quickest!) system for your teeth.
The first things most adult Virginia teeth-straightening clients ask about are the newer systems, sometimes called clear braces and adult braces. Invisalign and damon braces are two brand names of alternative orthodontic systems popular in Mt. Vernon and Alexandria. Many of our adult orthodontic patients have been embarrassed by their crooked teeth for many years and have developed a habit of covering their mouth when they smile. It is great to see them smiling confidently after they have completed treatment.
Younger clients usually have a different attitude about braces. They seem to consider braces more like a fashion accessory and are not afraid to show them off. Alexandria area teens are interested in color braces and colored rubber bands braces. During orthodontic consultations, they usually ask about the possibility of a clear retainer to maintain teeth alignment after their braces have done their job.
