Here at Smiles Unlimited, we offer two new forms of orthodontic treatment. Invisalign® or Fastbraces.® Both treatment options are a safe and effective form of giving you the straight smile you always wanted. However, how do you know which option is best for you? That is why our team is here to help you learn about both products and see which fit would be the best fit for you.

Invisalign
Invisalign is a very simple way to move teeth into place to help your smile stand out beautifully. Using a series of clear plastic aligners (that look like retainers), Invisalign straightens your teeth slowly in two-week increments. You wear one pair of aligners for two weeks, then ditch them for the next pair. The process takes about as long as traditional braces. One advantage of Invisalign is they are hard to notice, so no one can tell you are even taking any orthodontic treatment thanks to the clear aligners that snap over your teeth.

Fastbraces
Fastbraces is a braces system of short-term orthodontic treatment using either metal or clear ceramic brackets to straighten a smile. The average treatment time ranges from 6-12 months, instead of the typical 18-30 months for comprehensive orthodontic treatment. Of course, the exact time of treatment will vary from person-to-person. However, this is also another discreet option when it comes to adjusting your smile.

When it comes down to it, both Invisalign and Fastbraces are excellent ways to adjust your teeth into place.
