Serving Jacksonville Beach and Ponte Vedra With Adult Braces Options
It’s never too late to get the smile of your dreams. Nearly half of our patients are adults who are looking to give themselves a glow-up. But before starting treatment, many of our adult orthodontic patients tell us they are unsure how braces will fit their busy lifestyles.
These patients are surprised to learn that braces have changed a lot since their childhood. Alignment technology no longer relies on awkward and unsightly appliances. Recent innovations in orthodontic technology make today’s braces experience more gentle, quick, and efficient than ever before. New alignment options like Invisalign and clear ceramic braces allow for a treatment experience that prioritizes freedom and flexibility.
Invisalign® for Adults
Invisalign’s groundbreaking system of clean aligners can help improve your smile without relying on wires or brackets. Invisalign lets you enjoy a new smile by merely wearing your aligner 20 hours every day. Plus, they are made of a clear plastic that allows for a discrete alignment experience that you can remove from your mouth at a moment’s notice. Dr. Lazzara was one of the first orthodontists in the country to offer Invisalign. He understands how to use Invisalign to help you achieve stunning results.
Clear Ceramic Braces
Clear braces — sometimes called ceramic braces — are similar to traditional metal braces. However, they are made of a unique material that allows for the best looking, most discrete cosmetic braces available today. Our Clarity ADVANCED Ceramic Braces utilizes a low-profile design that is almost unnoticeable. And they use brackets with rounded corners that eliminate mouth irritation. Ceramic braces also use easy-to-clean and tough components that resist discoloration and staining while offering an effortless cleaning experience.
Are There Benefits to Adult Braces?
It is always a smart decision to invest in your smile. Many of our patients report that improving their alignment boosts their self-confidence and gives them a new outlook on life. But the benefits don’t stop there. Improving your alignment will promote your smile’s longevity. Crowded teeth are more likely to be a breeding ground for tooth decay or gum disease.
Properly aligned teeth are healthy teeth. Regular maintenance like brushing and flossing are more effective when your teeth are ideally aligned. By eliminating crowded areas, you help prevent future long-term complications that could prove expensive in the future.
