It’s no secret that regular old braces carry a certain stigma. The brackets, wires, and small, colored bands are clunky and painful, and most people shudder at the thought of having to get them. However, the dentistry of today is very different and Dr. Postol has options for you, like clear braces, that are less-invasive, nearly invisible, more comfortable, and take much less time. If you have ever dreamed about having a nicer smile, now is the time to visit St. Louis Dentistry and find out about the wonderful ways we can help build your confidence with a beautiful smile.
Invisalign is modern dentistry’s answer to traditional braces. If you want straighter teeth and a great smile without having to wear clunky, painful braces, Invisalign is perfect for you.
These clear braces were created to give patients a choice that doesn’t involve drastic changes to their daily life. Instead of permanently bonding wires and brackets to your teeth, Dr. Postol will provide you with a series of custom-made aligner trays designed to gradually and comfortably adjust your teeth over a period of about nine to fifteen months. The trays are clear, nearly invisible, and can be removed for eating and brushing, but still achieve life-changing results.
Dr. Postol starts the process by taking precise measurements of your mouth with specially designed impressions that are used to create custom-fitting alignment trays. Thanks to superior design and quality of materials, your Invisalign trays won’t irritate your gums and teeth or give you a nasty lisp. Most patients report that discomfort is rare and always disappears quickly. Even better, they are clear, so no one will know you have them in!
Each custom Invisalign tray is designed to be worn for two to three weeks. Because the trays are switched frequently and adjusted throughout the process for best results, the alignment is achieved gradually and comfortably, but still within a relatively short span of time. Most patients forget they are even wearing their Invisalign!
Creating the perfect smile is as easy as wearing your trays. Come see Dr. Postol at St. Louis Dentistry to find out what Invisalign can do for you!
Six Month Smiles is the next step in the evolution of traditional braces. The idea behind it is simple: get the smile you know you deserve with a quick, easy, and nearly invisible treatment.
So what is Six Months Smiles? Similar to clear braces, it’s simply braces, without the hassle! Most people don’t want braces because they are regrettably obvious and it can take years before you see results. However, with Six Month Smiles, the process is accomplished in an average of six months, with brackets and wires that are nearly invisible.
Here’s how it works. Six Months Smiles is a combination of the right materials and an improved method of realigning teeth. First, Dr. Postol will assess your personal needs and design a course of treatment. What makes Six Month Smiles special is a focus on selectively shaping your teeth to achieve the best cosmetic results for your smile. Sometimes the length of time can vary, but the average treatment takes about six months. Next we’ll fit you with top-notch technology, such as nickel titanium wires, Lucid-Lok™ clear brackets and Chameleon™ tooth-colored wires, which are nearly invisible. Six months later, you’ve got a straighter, more confident smile.
Dr. Postol is specially trained in designing safe, effective Six Month Smiles programs for St. Louis patients. This treatment is an excellent choice for most adults over 15, but if you want to make big changes to your bite, it may not be right for you.
