Are you dealing with a crooked smile? Braces from your Greenville, NC, dentists, Dr. Laura Dávila and Dr. Norberto Velázquez, can help. Having a straight smile is not only beautiful, but it's also better for your oral health and general health.
Misaligned teeth are harder to clean with brushing and flossing. They can also affect your chewing ability and speech. Fortunately, we offer several types of braces in Greenville, NC, to help correct your smile.
Traditional Metal Braces
They are made of metal and gently shift your teeth into the desired position using brackets and wires. They are the best option for moderate to severe orthodontic issues. Patients even get to choose the color of the bands used with traditional braces.
Ceramic braces are a tooth-colored alternative to the traditional ones. They blend in better with your smile, but they do come at a higher cost. They can correct almost all orthodontic concerns. If you choose ceramic braces, you have to be careful when eating and drinking because they can get stained easily.
Lingual braces are placed on the backs of your teeth instead of the fronts, so they are hidden from sight. They can't correct as many alignment issues, and they are not as comfortable because they come into contact with your tongue.
We offer Invisalign for teens and adults. This treatment is made up of clear aligner trays that are replaced every two weeks. They are almost invisible and removable. You will have to wear them for about 22 hours per day. They require more self-disciple but are the most discrete orthodontic treatment.
