Whatever your age or needs may we suggest you call for a free consultation to show you the benefits of beautifully aligned teeth for life.

Six Month Smiles
Adults and older teenagers looking to straighten their teeth can now get the smile they have always wanted – in just six months – through a cosmetic-braces system available through Dr. Lori Trost, DMD. Six Month Smiles System, is designed specifically for adults and teenagers (over 15), who have crooked, crowded or spaced teeth – without major bite issues.

The technique offers tremendous advantages over traditional metal braces.

• Unlike the traditional braces people must often wear for two to four years, this procedure straightens teeth in an average of just six months and uses low forces to gently move teeth more comfortably.

• The Six Month Smiles System utilizes specialized clear brackets and tooth-colored wires – making them virtually invisible.

• The procedure requires fewer dentist visits and is typically less expensive than traditional braces.

Invisalign
Invisalign straightens your teeth with a series of clear, virtually invisible custom-molded aligners. This breakthrough technology lets you have the smile you’ve always wanted without the hassle of braces.

By using a series of clear, removable aligners, Invisalign straightens your teeth with results you’ll notice sooner than you think. Most cases are completed in one year. The course of treatment involves changing aligners approximately every two weeks, moving your teeth into straighter position step by step, until you have a more beautiful smile. And unlike braces, these clear aligners can be removed while you eat and brush your teeth as usual. Plus they are clear and comfortable.

Minor Tooth Movement
Another method to align 1-4 teeth is minor tooth movement. This novel approach straighten your smile is simple and very cost effective. Clear plastic aligners are created to move the teeth into proper position. Of course, the major benefit is the aligner is comfortable, clear, and can be removed for eating, brushing, and flossing.

Traditional Braces
Our office also offers traditional braces – better known as wires and brackes. Once again, per the patient’s needs – recommendations for what type of treatment choice is best suited will be suggested.
