Orthodontics at Shield Dental Care
At some point, all of us wish to have straight, radiant teeth. As a matter of fact, crooked teeth can be more than just a cosmetic concern. Misaligned teeth can increase your risk of tooth decay or gum disease. A bad bite can also case jaw problems or difficulty with speaking or eating. Here at Shield Dental Care, we specialize in using traditional metal braces, clear braces, and ClearCorrect (clear aligners) to deliver results in a timeline that our patients appreciate.
Do you want to achieve a straighter smile? Many adults shy away from orthodontics due to the aesthetic and hassle wearing metal braces for months or even years. Dr. Ghorbani offers a much subtler and more convenient alternative that can still create the gorgeous smile you dream of. After taking xrays and an impression of your mouth, a set of customized clear trays are created. Each tray applies just the right pressure to straighten your teeth as quickly as the first tray. Compared to traditional braces, ClearCorrect results in fewer trips to the office and a smile that you can show off much more quickly.
Wire and Bracket Braces
In addition to traditional metal braces, Dr. Ghorbani likes to provide the option of clear braces. Certain misalignements of teeth require a wire as opposed to trays to effectively move the teeth into the proper position. Clear braces use brackets that are the same color as your natural teeth that are much less noticeable than metal brackets.
