Why Choose Us | Billings, MT - Legacy Smiles

Hello and welcome to the Legacy Smiles blog!

Are you upset about the state of affairs in your mouth?

If so, there is some encouraging news for you: Dr. Stuart can take your collection of crooked, crowded, and gapped teeth and turn them into a gorgeous grin.

We know what you must be thinking. And, no, he is not a magician. But he is wise enough to know that a short-term orthodontic program known as Invisalign can take you where you want to go, in a hurry.

Keep reading to learn more about how we can transform your smile, and then be sure to get in touch with our Billings, MT team to schedule your short-term orthodontics consultation.

Invisalign Clear Aligners Are Better Than Metal Brackets And Wires

As an adult, you are busy. You don’t have years to wait around for results. What’s more, you don’t want your nosey coworkers to know what you are up to.

Fortunately, our Invisalign aligners consist of a series of custom-made soft plastic retainers that slip directly over your teeth for a comfortable fit throughout your abbreviated treatment. No poking, bleeding, or sores along the way. And no one will ever see your “braces.” That means no nicknames or rude comments!

Moving Stubborn Adult Teeth

So, how do we move your stubborn teeth that settled into place years ago? We will do a complete workup and diagnosis of your alignment and bite problems, and then prescribe a series of clear aligners to correct and straighten your teeth.

Each Invisalign aligner tightly molds to your teeth, exerting gradual pressure to shift and rotate your teeth into a more perfect alignment.

The Benefits Should Be Clear

There is a lot to love about Invisalign.

One big advantage of the Invisalign method is that you can take your aligners out for eating and cleaning purposes, which makes for a much more enjoyable experience than treatments involving metal gear. It also eliminates the need for special tools and dietary restrictions.

Here’s the trick: you will need to wear your Invisalign aligners for the better part of each day for 2-3 weeks at a time.

Then you move on to the next set of aligners in the series to keep the process moving in the right direction. You can make this switch on your own, so there is no need for monthly in-office adjustments like traditional braces would necessitate. That means no unnecessary time off of work.

Like we said, you won’t have to wait 2-3 years for your great results. The transformation happens quickly with Invisalign! The total treatment time should only take about 12 months, depending on the severity of your issues.

When we are through with you, you’ll have plenty to smile about!

Invisalign Could Work For You

What are you dealing with in terms of dental issues? And what would you prefer to see when you look in the mirror?

Invisalign aligners are very effective for people with minor crowding, gaps between their teeth, and mild alignment problems.

Just so you know: patients who have severe alignment and bite problems, or have very wide spaces between their teeth, would probably benefit from a more complex treatment with traditional orthodontics.

But there’s no way to know for sure until you schedule your consultation with Dr. Stuart and the rest of our team!

We’ll help you straighten out your problems, one way or another!
