Clear braces for the modern world
Deciding to straighten your teeth should not be something to be embarrassed about. Until recent years, however, it was pretty much a guarantee – brace face, metal mouth, train tracks, cheese grater, tinsel teeth, we’ve heard them all. With average treatment times of a couple of years, it’s no wonder so many of our patients have avoided orthodontics all together. Thankfully, at Fuquay Family Dentistry, we offer some the most advanced, most patient-requested discreet and short-term orthodontic solutions.

Why straighten teeth?
The most obvious and the most common reason patients want to straighten their teeth is cosmetic. However, what many patients don’t realize is not only the incredible and wide-spread impact that cosmetic change can have on their lives, but also the health and functional benefits that come along with straightening teeth.
A game changing smile
Straightening your teeth can make a dramatic difference not only in the look of your smile, but your overall appearance and attractiveness. When you look good, you feel good! Your confidence, happiness, and self-esteem will increase, and others will begin to notice a difference in the way that you carry yourself. You will be more likely to show off your beautiful new smile, and put yourself out there in situations where you may not have previously.
A straight, confident smile is a symbol of health, vitality, success, and happiness. You will begin to notice new doors of opportunity opening up all around you from your personal relationships to your scholastic or professional endeavors.
A healthier smile
An added bonus and another reason to consider straightening your teeth is increased oral health. When teeth are straight, the gums fit better around the teeth, and teeth and gums are easier to keep clean and healthy. Teeth alignment also plays a big role in the health of your bite, which can have an impact on the function of your mouth and jaw joint. A straighter smile is a healthier smile!

Clear Aligner Therapy
Your Fuquay-Varina dentists love the opportunity to transform our patients’ smiles with clear plastic aligners. Each set of aligners is worn for a few weeks, and is custom-made just for your smile to gently apply pressure and shift teeth into their desired position. We offer two kinds of clear aligners, Invisalign® and ClearCorrect®. Which option is right for you will be determined in your consultation with Dr. McCormick or Dr. Meunier.
No unsightly and uncomfortable metal brackets and wires necessary. Skip the embarrassment, and straighten teeth without anyone needing to know. All they will notice is your beautifully straight new smile. They might think it was magic, whether or not you let them in on your secret is up to you.
Six Month Smiles® is a popular cosmetic orthodontic solution for patients seeking a fast and common-sense teeth straightening system. Six Month Smiles® clear braces utilize clear Lucid-Lok® brackets and tooth-colored wires, so they are barely visible, allowing your natural smile to shine through treatment, without the unsightly metal mouth look. What our patients love most about Six Month Smiles® is in the name – average treatment times are only six months! That’s just a fraction of average treatment times of traditional metal braces. Achieve a beautifully straight smile, and a confident new you in just six months with Six Month Smiles®!
