Affordable Cosmetic Teeth Straightening for Adults in Fort Worth
Why Not Get Braces?
A recent study suggests that 36% of American adults feel that their social lives would be improved by an upgrade to their smile. Why, then, has it always been so uncommon to see adults with braces? There are of course myriad reasons for this.
One big reason for many people is the cost. Most of us will try to find a way to come up with the money to fix developmental issues for our kids, but it’s often more difficult to justify the same expense for what often amounts to a simple cosmetic issue for ourselves.
Another reason is the length of treatment. Some people have trouble mustering the courage to schedule a single appointment for a dental check up. For these people, the idea of committing to a treatment regimen spanning a year and a half or more is daunting to say the least.
The discomfort is a factor that can hardly be ignored as well. Full-mouth, metal braces are an aggressive treatment any way you slice it, and it turns out that moving all of your teeth from one part of your head to another part of your head causes an unpleasant sensation in most people.
Last but not least, there is the cosmetic concern that is at the heart of this whole issue to begin with. It seems counter intuitive for a person seeking to improve the aesthetic of their smile to don a conspicuous oral accessory that is commonly associated with adolescence, doesn’t it?
Thankfully, Dr. Butch Hutchison offers a less expensive, less painful, less garish, and less time-consuming cosmetic teeth straightening option for adult patients in the Fort Worth area. It’s called 6 Month Smiles.
Because the focus is on cosmetic teeth straightening rather than bite realignment, treatment can be completed in a fraction of the time needed for traditional orthodontic processes. By combining tried and true orthodontic techniques with cutting edge technology, 6 Month Smiles can actually achieve these rapid results while placing less stress on your teeth and jaw. Because of this there is less discomfort during the actual treatment as well.
Dr. Hutchison uses tooth colored brackets and wires with the 6 Month Smile system, and the focus is solely on straightening the teeth that show in your smile. This means that the hardware attracts far less attention than that of standard metal braces.
Because this system requires fewer appointments and less treatment, it is also relatively inexpensive. For added convenience and accessibility, we offer flexible payment plans.
In addition to 6 Month Smiles, we offer Invisalign to our patients in need of more extensive orthodontic treatment. If you’d like more information on the orthodontic system that best suits your needs, contact our office to schedule a consultation.
