Bright Purple Mouth When You Smile In San Antonio?

Want Clear Braces in San Antonio? Remember when San Antonio adolescents undergoing orthodontic treatment were mortified by their metal mouth? Thankfully, those days are over. The San Antonio teens of today wear their braces proudly and make no effort to hide them. They know they don’t need to wait until their teeth are aligned to flaunt a striking smile; they enjoy flashing their brightly-colored braces in all their glory.

Another plus? Just as they mix and match their clothes and shoes, teens can change their wires and bands every time they visit their San Antonio dentist or orthodontist. Braces have become another fun way for San Antonio fashion-forward teens to express their personality.

Of course, there are still some kids (and many adults!) that are not thrilled about having metallic fuchsia bands and neon yellow wires adorning their teeth. Discrete Invisalign aligners are virtually undetectable and straighten teeth just as quickly and effectively as metal braces. Another benefit of the Invisalign system is that the aligners are not permanently attached to the teeth. Invisalign aligners are easily slipped out for brushing, flossing, meals, and sports. If your San Antonio child plays a musical instrument that defies traditional braces, removable aligners may be the best option.

Clear Braces San Antonio If you want to straighten your teeth or correct a bite problem, you have more restorative dentistry options in San Antonio than ever before. The current menu of orthodontic treatments requires a whole new glossary. Here are some of the common orthodontia terms heard around San Antonio.

Lingual Braces and Invisible Braces
These are sometimes described as ‘braces behind the teeth’. These braces are just as effective at realigning adult teeth as the traditional ‘metal and wires’ kind but are almost completely hidden. Many San Antonio adults and teens who straighten their teeth choose this type of orthodontia.

Invisible braces work great for many San Antonio braces patients. To find out if lingual braces are the best type for your teeth, lifestyle and budget, schedule an orthodontic consultation at William J. Stewart Jr. DDS by calling 210-493-3040. We can help you determine which type of adults braces system is right for you and your smile.

Traditional and Clear Retainers
Once a San Antonio clear braces or traditional braces patient has completed treatment, retainers must be worn regularly to keep the beautiful straight teeth in their corrected position. There are several types of retainers available for San Antonio cosmetic dental patients. The time-tested Hawley retainer consists of a metal wire that surrounds the teeth and keeps them from shifting. The metal wire is attached to a molded acrylic form that fits snugly in the upper mouth (palate) or lower mouth.

Clear retainers are newer on the San Antonio orthodontic scene. They cover the teeth like a see-through glove and do not need metal bows or clasps. Some retainer wearers believe clear retainers are more comfortable than Hawley retainers.

You don’t need to suffer with a mouth full of metal to get the beautiful teeth you are seeking. Let us help you develop a custom treatment plan for your smile.

Straighten Teeth Fast in San Antonio

Color Braces Poorly aligned teeth? Think it takes forever for braces to straighten them? Think again. There are many new types of braces available at your San Antonio cosmetic dentist‘s office. In some cases, teeth can be straightened in a few months and then, with braces off–a fantastic new smile.

If you are considering straightening your teeth, come into William J. Stewart Jr. DDS in San Antonio for an orthodontic consultation. We can discuss the new types of braces.  Dr. William Stewart, DDS, will explain the pros and cons of each type and recommend the most effective (and quickest!) system for your teeth.

The first things most adult San Antonio teeth-straightening clients ask about are the newer systems, sometimes called clear braces and adults braces. Clear Correct is a brand name of an alternative orthodontic system popular in Shavano Park and Leon Springs. Many of our adult orthodontic patients have been embarrassed by their crooked teeth for many years and have developed a habit of covering their mouth when they smile. It is great to see them smiling confidently after they have completed treatment.

Younger clients usually have a different attitude about braces. They seem to consider braces more like a fashion accessory and are not afraid to show them off. San Antonio area teens are interested in color braces and colored rubber bands braces. During orthodontic consultations, they usually ask about the possibility of a clear retainer to maintain teeth alignment after their braces have done their job.
