Discreet Orthodontics with Dr. Jeffrey Shirck

August 8, 2014

178597379Though there are some who do not mind the look of traditional braces, there are those who prefer a more discreet form of orthodontic care. Wires and brackets can be uncomfortable, and having a mouth full of metal can turn people away from taking the step in straightening their smiles. Fortunately, the world of orthodontics has come a long way. Now our patients are able to straighten their smiles discreetly while being able to look like their natural selves, and Dr. Jeffrey Shirck is able to make that happen for his patients.

One form of conservative orthodontic treatment that our offices offer is Invisalign and Invisalign Teen. Invisalign works through a series of aligning trays that are specially made to fit your smile only. Sitting nearly invisibly on your smile, each tray is indicative of a new stage in your straightening process. After you wear a tray for a certain amount of time, simply apply the next one in the series to continue your orthodontic treatment. One of the benefits of Invisalign is that you are not on a restricted diet as you would be with traditional braces. You are able to eat and drink whatever you want, and any time you need to brush or floss, simply remove and reapply the tray when necessary!
Another form of discreet orthodontics we offer is lingual braces. Lingual braces uses brackets that are, again, custom made just for you! This ensures that your treatment plan is as personalized as possible, delivering amazing results. The wonderful thing about lingual braces is that the brackets sit inside of your teeth, completely hiding the fact that you are wearing braces at all! A wonderful option for our adult patients, you are able to achieve the straighter smile you have been wanting, all the while looking completely natural! If you are interested in discreet orthodontics and would like the help of Dr. Shirck, contact our office today!

Call Shirck Orthodontics to schedule an appointment. We’ll be happy to assess your situation and recommend a treatment plan designed around your needs. We serve patients from Westerville, Sunbury, New Albany, Alexandria, Granville, Johnstown, Newark, Blacklick, Reynoldsburg, and beyond.
