If you do not have straight teeth, you may be self-conscious about your appearance, and you probably avoid smiling out in public or for pictures. Having a straight smile can help boost your confidence level and help you feel better about yourself. If you have crooked, misaligned, or crowded teeth, Advanced Dental of Las Cruces offers adult orthodontics for you.

We offer adult orthodontic treatments, including Six Month Smiles and Invisalign, to help you get the smile you have always wanted – without the intrusion of traditional metal braces. While wearing either of these orthodontic options, you will not feel like everyone is looking at your mouth, and you don’t have to worry about them interfering with your lifestyle.

Invisalign for Adults

Invisalign is a sleek and modern way to get the straight smile you’ve always wanted. The treatment involves a clear solution to traditional metal braces in the form of clear aligners. These aligners are custom made to fit properly in your mouth, and they feel comfortable and smooth.

During your Invisalign consultation, we will take digital impressions of your teeth to have the molds made. Once the custom aligners are ready for you to wear, treatment will begin. You will wear a series of aligners for a two-week period. Each series is shaped slightly differently so that they can gradually straighten your teeth over time. After the two weeks, you will move to the next set of aligners and continue until your desired results are achieved.

One of the greatest benefits of Invisalign is that you can remove the aligners from your mouth whenever you eat or brush your teeth. It is recommended that you wear your aligners for at least 20-22 hours a day to achieve the best and fastest results. Within 12-18 months, you will be able to show off your straightened smile proudly!

Six Month Smiles for Adults

Six Month Smiles is an alternative to traditional metal braces and offers you a clear solution like Invisalign. Six Month Smiles is more closely related to braces because they look and function like braces, but they are clear.

During the orthodontic treatment procedure, the braces slowly move your teeth until they are straight. The reason they are able to straighten your teeth fast is that they focus on the teeth that show when you smile, which move into position easier and quicker.
