Most people associate braces with the teenage years, but did you know that approximately one in five orthodontic patients is over the age of 18? It is never too late to achieve a beautiful smile with straight teeth and a healthy bite! At Gunnerson Dental, from clear braces to Cfast™ braces that straighten the front six teeth, we offer a variety of orthodontics options for Payson, Utah area residents that are tailored to your specific goals and needs.
Adult orthodontics options to meet a variety of needs
Traditional metal braces are very effective at straightening teeth and aligning the bite but are one of the first things people notice about your smile because of their dark silver color. With clear braces at Gunnerson Dental, you can straighten your teeth discreetly! Clear braces function in the same way as traditional braces but use tooth-colored wires and clear brackets to achieve excellent results without being as noticeable in your smile.
Actual Patient Results
Additionally, for patients interested in just straightening the front teeth that are most visible in their smile, we offer the Cfast™ tooth straightening system. Cfast braces:
- Straighten the “social six,” or the front six teeth of both your upper and lower dental arches
- Take only about six months to achieve your desired end results, rather than the usual year to year-and-a-half
- Work like normal braces to straighten your teeth but are less time-consuming and obtrusive in your mouth
Orthodontics: improving your smile and your oral health
Straight teeth do more than just make you look great. While being confident and loving your smile is reason enough to pursue orthodontic therapy, it also has oral health benefits. Straight teeth are easier to clean because you don’t have to brush and floss around crowded areas. Additionally, orthodontics helps align your teeth and bite properly, which can reduce your chances of having uncomfortable symptoms associated with issues such as temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder, bruxism (grinding and clenching your teeth), and other issues associated with misalignment.
