Straighter Teeth for a Healthier, More Attractive Smile
Crooked teeth can cause quite a few problems. They tend to wear off faster, they make it harder to clean your smile, and they can interfere with your ability to chew properly. And of course, there’s the fact that it’s hard to be confident when your smile has noticeable alignment issues. No matter how old you are, it’s best to have crooked teeth straightened as soon as you can. Call Smyth Dental Centre today to see what orthodontic options are available for straightening your grin.

As you’re probably aware, traditional braces involve metal brackets that are attached to your smile. A wire is used to connect these brackets and exert pressure on the teeth. Over time, braces can gradually shift your teeth until they are properly aligned. The timeline for wearing traditional braces is different for every patient. The average is around 18 to 24 months, but some treatments might take longer depending on the issues that need to be corrected.
Spark Clear Aligners
The Spark clear aligner system gives you a way to straighten your teeth without having to rely on metal braces. The aligners are fully transparent and won’t draw attention when worn. A key feature of the Spark process is virtual monitoring. You can scan your teeth with your phone and send the results to us; this lets us check on your progress without having to schedule an in-person appointment.
Compared to other clear aligner systems (including Invisalign), Spark aligners are much more affordable while offering a more comfortable fit thanks to the high-quality yet flexible plastic. They fit so well that many patients can eat and drink with them, and they don’t have to worry about discoloration because they are virtually stain-proof! The system is also able to deliver a better end result because the trays are switched out every five to seven days as opposed to two weeks, allowing for more precise movements of the teeth to create the ideal look.
