If you have always wanted braces, but struggle with self-consciousness and concerns about aesthetics during the process, Six Month Smiles® could be the perfect solution.

Six Month Smiles® technology uses tooth-colored wires and brackets to fix your teeth. This form of treatment is extremely attractive whether you want to straighten your smile, make it more symmetric, fix your gum line, or correct crowding or gaps between teeth.

The Invisalign® system consists of a series of custom-made aligners that gradually shift your teeth into place without the use of brackets, cement, metal, or wires. The trays are individually manufactured and customized for you so they will not rub on your cheeks or gums, and they are virtually invisible so hardly anyone will even know you are straightening your teeth. You can remove the aligners to eat, drink, brush or floss, or even for special occasions.
At your initial appointment, Ballwin dentist Dr. Postol will take precise impressions to assure that your aligners are customized perfectly for your teeth. A series of dental trays will be prepared, and you will have instructions to switch them out about every two weeks. You will visit our office approximately every four to six weeks for a follow-up consultation. The treatment lasts on average between nine and fifteen months, depending on how much shifting is being done on your teeth.
Invisalign® trays are is designed to have the least amount of impact on your life as possible. The trays should be worn at least twenty hours a day, but can be taken out when needed and will not have any effect on what you eat or drink. The aligners are virtually clear most patients experience only mild pressure from gradual the changes in their teeth alignment. You may have a slight lisp during the initial adjustment while your tongue gets used to the presence of the trays, but this disappears quickly for most patients.
