Teeth Straightening


Glendale Heights Family Dental offers two straightening options to suit your needs best: Invisalign and Six Month Smiles.

What Did Invisalign Do for You?

Invisalign is the invisible way to straighten your teeth without braces. It uses a series of clear removable aligners to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets. The aligners are virtually invisible and removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while undergoing treatment.

No metal, wires, or dreaded rubber bands make Invisalign more comfortable than traditional braces. Invisalign® treatment also allows you to view your virtual treatment plan when you start to see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.

How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign works through the use of a series of removable plastic aligning trays. These trays are changed out every two weeks for 9 to 15 months (depending on the extent of crowding or spacing of teeth), gradually straightening your teeth over time. The average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case. During your first Invisalign appointment, your dentist will evaluate your smile and create a 3D rendition of your teeth. Customized aligners created in a lab will be specifically designed to fit your needs, gradually straightening your smile.

What Do Six-Month Smiles Do for You?

You may remember the “train track metal mouth” look from years ago. Six Month Smiles braces use tooth-colored (white) brackets and wires. They’re barely visible! Six Month Smiles Braces are appropriate for correcting spaces, gaps, crooked, or crowded teeth. If the teeth that show in your smile aren’t straight, Six Month Smiles may be the perfect solution for you. While similar to conventional braces, Six Month Smiles focuses only on the teeth showing in your smile so you can get a smile you are proud of in a reasonable amount of time. It addresses cosmetic issues of orthodontics.

How Do Six-Month Smiles Work?

Six Month Smiles braces are similar to conventional adult orthodontics because brackets and wires are used, and the teeth-moving mechanism is the same. Six Month Smiles uses low force to move teeth gently. Many people think accelerated braces treatment means simply tightening regular braces to get the teeth moving, but that is not true.

Six Month Smiles utilizes standard orthodontic mechanics but emphasizes the cosmetic appearance of your teeth rather than the position of your bite. Six Month Smiles only focuses on the front teeth and does not improve your taste like traditional orthodontics.
