If you find yourself hiding your smile, covering your mouth while you talk, or if you’re the only person in every family photo that’s frowning, it might be time to make a change. A recent University of California Berkley study revealed that people who smile more are less likely to get divorced or experience depression, and are more likely to get hired or promoted. However, similar studies reveal that those whose smiles are unappealing would do better to hide their smiles as they are perceived as less intelligent and unhealthy. If you’re ready to achieve your full smile confidence and potential, Rocky River cosmetic dentist, Dr. William L. Eick, and his team can help. We offer a wide variety of cosmetic dentistry services to correct, conceal, or transform your smile.

It’s no secret that straight, beautiful teeth are the fundamental components of an attractive and healthy smile. If your teeth aren’t as straight as you’d like, you may have considered orthodontic treatment but hesitated because traditional braces just aren’t right for you. Fortunately, there are alternative solutions that actually do fit your lifestyle and preserve your polished image, and they’re available at the Rocky River, OH dental practice of Dr. William L. Eick.
Benefits of Short Term Orthodontics
While traditional orthodontic treatment is suitable for many patients, metal brackets and wires simply aren’t the most appealing options for everyone. Image-conscious teens and adults concerned about their appearance don’t typically enjoy the thought of spending years with a mouth full of metal. For patients who want straighter, healthier teeth without the hassles and treatment duration associated with traditional braces, Dr. Eick offers two alternatives: ClearCorrect™ clear aligners and Six Month Smiles® tooth-colored braces.
ClearCorrect™ aligners are clear orthodontic aligners that are made of comfortable, specialized plastic and customized to fit your unique dentition. You’ll receive a series of aligners that have been fabricated to gradually align your teeth over the course of approximately 12 to 18 months. As you move from one set to the next every few weeks, you’ll begin to see your new, straighter smile emerge. You don’t have to modify your diet or your oral hygiene routine; simply remove your aligners when you eat and when you brush and floss your teeth.
With the Six Month Smiles® system, you can enjoy straighter teeth in as little as half a year. Unlike traditional orthodontic braces, Six Month Smiles® uses clear brackets and tooth-colored wires to properly align only the teeth that show when you smile. This allows Dr. Eick to help you achieve a more uniform smile in a significantly shorter period of time. Whichever short term orthodontic treatment you choose, your end result will be the same: a drastically transformed smile you’ll be proud to show off to the world.
