If you’ve been hiding your smile due to crooked, gapped, crowded, or misaligned teeth, Dr. Diehl & Dr. Hemphill at Dupont Family Dentistry in Fort Wayne have a solution for you. If you’re like most Fort Wayne residents, you probably cringe when you think of straightening your teeth. Nobody wants to go through the process, but don’t throw in the towel just yet! Dr. Diehl & Dr. Hemphill want you to know that a beautiful, straight smile is attainable with one of our tried and true orthodontic solutions. Now the process is faster and easier than ever before – instead of traditional impressions which left room for error and used messy paste that was anything but pleasant, we use fast, convenient, and precisely accurate 3D digital scans to create the perfect treatment plan for the smile of your dreams.
If you are only looking for a cosmetic solution for teeth that are slightly crooked or misaligned, ClearCorrect® removable orthodontics might be a fantastic option for you. ClearCorrect® removables are much less invasive to your life than traditional metal braces. Why? Because they are made from clear plastic rather than metal, and they’re removable! Where them when it’s most convenient for you, take them out if you have a hot date (even though they are nearly invisible while you have them in). You can still eat your favorite foods and maintain optimum oral hygiene, while allowing your smile to shine through treatment.
If you’re looking for a cosmetic solution to straighten the teeth that show when you smile, but are not looking for major corrections to your bite, short term orthodontics might be for you. By focusing pressure on only shifting the teeth that show when you smile, the front teeth, we are able to achieve beautiful results with much faster treatment times than traditional braces. If you have an important life event coming up – maybe a wedding, reunion, anniversary – and you would love to straighten your smile, but don’t have time for full orthodontic treatment, call us today to find out if you are a good candidate for short term orthodontics.
While we do offer some great alternatives to traditional braces, this is still the most reliable, tried and true method of straightening teeth and correcting bite problems. If you have teeth that are moderately to severely misaligned, or have problems with your bite that is causing pain and discomfort, long term orthodontics is probably your best option.
