At Collins Dentistry & Aesthetics, we offer comprehensive orthodontic treatment, including traditional braces as well as Invisalign clear braces. We offer braces for kids and adults too, to help you get the straight teeth that you’ve always wanted.
Braces work by guiding the teeth and bones into the correct position and alignment for optimal aesthetics and function. They use either metal brackets and wires/bands or, with Invisalign, we use clear plastic aligners that gradually reposition your teeth.
The treatment, cost and time it takes to achieve your desired results will depend on your smile’s unique challenges. Drs. Ken and Marnie Collins will first need to see you for an orthodontic evaluation (book yours online now or call 509-540-3111 in Spokane or 509-540-3200 in Spokane Valley) to gauge just what we’re up against and will then be able to give you the details for your braces.
A Positive Change
It may come as no surprise to learn that people value straight smiles. One recent study found that 77 percent of women consider crooked teeth to be a bigger turn-off than a receding hairline. It also showed that 78 percent of Americans perceived people who had crooked teeth as being less successful.
In a perfect world, our teeth wouldn’t impact our professional and social lives. Unfortunately, in the real world, it’s clear that they do. Drs. Ken and Marnie Collins can provide you with the straight smile you’ve always dreamed of, so you won’t feel held back or insecure.
Don’t let crooked teeth make you feel introverted and insecure, when you can easily attain a straight smile that will give you the confidence you need to enjoy a successful professional and social life.
Why Do You Still Do Braces?
As many dentists are rushing to abandon braces in favor of newer, more marketable technologies, at Collins Dentistry & Aesthetics, our cosmetic dentists still recommend braces for many of our patients. Why do we do this?
Results Matter Most
Braces have never really been a popular dental treatment, except for one thing: their results. And even with new innovations in orthodontic treatment there are still times when traditional wire-and-bracket braces will give you the best results.
We believe in Invisalign clear braces, and we offer them alongside our traditional braces. But we also know that they have their limitations, and, although they’re getting better, they’re still not able to accomplish all the things that traditional braces can do.
We also like that in many cases we just know that braces will work, where we might not be 100% certain for clear braces.
Braces Are Better Than Ever
Although braces are a technology that is more than 150 years old, they are also very new. Just like Invisalign, braces have been taking advantage of new discoveries in materials and computing to become a better technology. Clear brackets and white wires can make braces less visible, and new designs make them more comfortable than they used to be.
You Deserve a Choice
Another important reason we continue to use braces is because we think you should have choices and options to accomplish your beautiful smile. Many people start out thinking they definitely want to use clear braces, but then realize they didn’t quite understand how they worked and want to consider traditional braces.
We want you to have the choice about which orthodontic procedure is right for you. Offering multiple options gives you the chance to consider all the factors and decide which one you like best.
