Perfect your smile with braces and aligners.
Not everyone is born with beautiful teeth. Crooked and misaligned teeth are known sources of self-consciousness, embarrassment and low self-esteem. At Cosmo Smile Dental, we offer a variety of orthodontic treatments to help you achieve a healthy and beautiful smile.
There's a lot of treatment options to correct teeth that are crowded or crooked including retainers, aligners and braces (invisible, metal, ceramic or micro braces). Correcting a bad bite and improperly aligned teeth (malocclusion) is important not only for aesthetic reasons but also for proper oral health and function.
Your age, jaw and the size of your teeth all contribute to your smile. Bite problems usually become obvious between ages 6 and 12, and orthodontic treatments often start at ages 8 and 14. But this doesn’t mean that adults aren’t good candidates for braces. Healthy teeth can be adjusted at any age. In fact, many orthodontic cases can be corrected as easily for adults as for children.
Invisalign uses virtually invisible aligners that you wear over your teeth. These clear aligners are custom-made for you and will gently and gradually shift your teeth in place. Invisalign aligners have no metal brackets or wires that need to be tightened, they are removable and can help you achieve a great smile without having to change your lifestyle
2. Damon Braces
The Damon braces uses "self-ligating" braces that are designed to be discreet, comfortable and easy to keep clean. Damon braces has brackets that hold the wire in place without the need for elastics or metal ties, thus allowing for more freedom of movement and eliminating the need for tightening.
3. Ceramic Braces
Ceramic braces are made of strong composite materials that are made to match the color of the teeth. They are less noticeable making them a popular choice among many patients. The brackets are made of ceramic or porcelain materials and the wires are made of metal alloys and deliver a constant, gentle force to move teeth.
4. Metal Braces
Metal braces are the more traditional treatment option for correcting bites and crooked teeth. Strong, stainless steel brackets, tiny rubber bands called "ligatures" or "o-rings" and wires make up these braces. Metal brackets are less expensive than other bracket types. Patients are also offered a variety of choices when it comes to the colors of the ligatures.
