How orthodontic treatment from your dentists in Danville, VA, can help you achieve a straight smile


Have you thought about straightening your smile? Modern orthodontic treatment has led to more people achieving a straight smile than Bracesever before. It isn’t just teens that can benefit from braces; adults of all ages are choosing orthodontics too! Drs. Jessica Owens and Zachary Hairston at Art of Dentistry in Danville, VA, offer a full range of orthodontic solutions to give you a straight, spectacular smile!

People choose orthodontic treatment to correct problems like these:

  • Underbite or overbite
  • Crossbite or open bite
  • Poor tooth alignment
  • Crowding or tooth rotation
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Overlapping teeth

So, which type of braces is right for you? Your dentist can help you decide, and there are several choices. Consider:

  • Conventional metal braces, which are the tried-and-true method to achieve a straight smile; today’s metal braces are smaller and much less visible than braces from years ago.
  • Ceramic braces, which are more aesthetically appealing than metal; these braces are tooth-colored, so they blend in with your smile.
  • Lingual braces, which are cemented on to tooth surfaces next to your tongue; these braces are virtually invisible to people around you.

At Art of Dentistry, you can also choose Invisalign, the revolutionary orthodontic system that doesn’t use braces at all. Invisalign uses a system of clear, smooth plastic trays, called aligners, which you wear for two weeks, and then progress to a new set of aligners. You change aligners every two weeks as your teeth gradually move into correct position. Invisalign offers these important advantages:

  • Rapid results, because treatment is complete in 9 to 15 months
  • Comfortable treatment, because the aligners are made of smooth plastic, with no sharp parts
  • Discreet beauty, because the aligners are clear and virtually invisible to people around you

Don’t make your orthodontic decision alone. Seek out the help of an expert, your dentist. For more information about braces and Invisalign, call Drs. Jessica Owens and Zachary Hairston at Art of Dentistry in Danville, VA. Call today and get started on a straight, beautiful smile!
