One look at magazines will show you that straight teeth are widely considered more attractive than crooked ones. But did you know that straightening your smile can do more than improve your aesthetics? Fixing misaligned teeth can have health benefits as well. When teeth are perfectly aligned, efficient brushing and flossing become much easier, and oral problems like gum disease and cavities become less likely. At Sunny Smile Dental, Dr. Sung-Hee Lee can give you the straight smile that you’ve always wanted with orthodontics in North Dallas, TX, so contact us to schedule your consultation today!
No matter the severity of the misalignment, traditional braces are a reliable, effective way to get the straight results you’re looking for. They can be used to treat patients of basically any age, including children, teens, and adults. Although the basic premise of traditional orthodontics hasn’t changed over the years, modern advancements in materials used for the braces have made this treatment sleeker and more comfortable than ever before.
Would you like to avoid having to wear metal braces? We have a much more subtle solution that actually works faster than traditional orthodontics. Using Invisalign’s comfortable clear plastic aligners, which essentially disappear when worn, we can steadily guide your teeth into their proper alignment. Basically, you wear the aligners for 22 hours every day, taking them out only for eating, drinking, and oral care. Then, after about two weeks, you switch to the next set of aligners. Step by step over the course of 12 to 18 months, you achieve your beautifully straight smile without sacrificing your appearance in the process.
