We’ll Help You Find Your Best Orthodontic Option to Straighten Your Smile

At Summit Dental, you can choose between traditional braces and Invisalign. Both options have their pros and cons, which we will discuss with you. Among the factors you will want to consider are:

  • Your Orthodontic Issues – While Invisalign can correct many smile problems, some more complicated cases such as teeth that require rotation will respond better to braces.
  • Your Lifestyle – If discreet straightening is especially important to you because of your career or other reasons, you’ll likely want to avoid metal brackets and wires if you can.
  • Your Self-Discipline – One of Invisalign’s biggest benefits, removable aligners, makes it easy to take care of your teeth. However, if you won’t wear your aligners for the recommended amount of time, you may want to choose braces instead.
  • Your Budget – We know cost will be a key consideration, so we’ll ensure you understand the financial requirements for both options.

No matter which option you choose, you’ll need to wear a retainer after treatment to keep your teeth straight. We can provide a retainer for you too!

Consider Other Cosmetic Treatments For a Complete Smile Makeover

You may want to consider some of our other cosmetic treatments to complement your straight smile. Some options include:

  • Teeth Whitening – Choose from a laser-assisted treatment in our office or convenient take-home whitening treatments.
  • Teeth Contouring – Dental contouring can fix issues that won’t respond to orthodontic treatment, such as teeth with rough or uneven edges.
  • Gum Reshaping – To better showcase your straight teeth, our dentists can use a laser to painlessly remove excess gum tissue.
  • Dental Veneers – Cover stains, chips, and similar flaws with veneers.
