Orthodontic treatment doesn’t always mean a mouth full of metal braces worn for an extended period of time.
In fact, many of our patients have acceptably healthy bites of the back teeth and may need only limited fine tuning of the alignment of the front teeth. These alignment corrections may be for functional concerns, enhanced comfort, or the desire to improve your appearance and your confidence with a better smile. At Team Orthodontics, we have over 15 years of experience with smile makeovers that are less comprehensive than a full correction but equally effective in improving your health and appearance. It is a service that we excel at and one that we’re doing with greater frequency.
Getting A Smile Makeover
Often times, these smile makeovers involve treatment of only the front teeth, with a treatment length of anywhere from 3-6 months.
The methods to correct these smile concerns range from removable clear teeth aligners that are worn full-time during the treatment period, to hidden (lingual) braces placed behind the teeth or traditional ceramic braces located on the outside tooth surface. At Team Orthodontics, we will enhance your smile while also providing you with the health benefits of a properly aligned bite. The only interruption to your busy life is a visit to our office or a FaceTime session with our staff once every 6-10 weeks. Don’t forget that Team Orthodontics has early evening and Saturday visits available for your convenience as well.
Post Smile Makeover
After treatment is completed, we will provide you with the appropriate aesthetic retainers that maintain your new smile. We also provide you with a complimentary teeth whitening to make your teeth look their very best.
Unlike online versions of this service, we provide the added benefits of direct supervision by an experienced orthodontic specialist. This ensures that your smile makeover provides you with the results you are seeking. All of this comes at a cost that is a fraction of a full orthodontic treatment.
At Team O, we also are able to help you with the filing of your insurance paperwork at no additional cost to you. The exciting news is that if you have any orthodontic insurance coverage, most of the treatment is covered by your insurance. That means you can have the smile you’ve always wanted with a minimal out-of-pocket monthly cost. It’s important to note that this is a key advantage of our service over direct-to-consumer aligners that will not assist or file a patient’s insurance paperwork.
Also, our smile makeover fees are priced relatively the same as what you pay for over-the-counter “smile makeover” kits that can be hit and miss with their results. In some cases, we can drastically improve your smile for as little as $80/month for some patients.
