Short Term Braces & Invisalign in Raleigh NC

Spectrum Family Dentistry provides a wide variety of dental services including cosmetic dentistry, dental implants, crowns, bridges, and preventative dentistry for adults and children, but sets itself apart from other practices in that Dr. Le provides short-term (averaging between 4-9 months) cosmetic orthodontic braces for adults.  The practice works extensively with young and older adults who are troubled by their unsightly crowded, spaced, or misaligned front teeth.  Dr.  Le will evaluate patients if their dental problem can be treated with Short-Term Orthodontic care, with no obligation.  This is a chance for you to find out if you can be helped with this innovative, new technique before you obligate yourself.

Traditional metal orthodontic brackets are normally used for the Short-Term braces. However, if preferred we can use ceramic or white brackets instead of the metal ones.  This approach is faster and more precise than Invisalign, which uses clear trays.  In fact, many doctors who use Invisalign often incorporate traditional braces for the final touch.

If you are like many people who have been bothered by crooked front teeth but do not want them crowned or thought that dental braces committed you to two or more years of treatment, Short-Term braces offer a healthy and usually less expensive choice.


Not every one is a candidate for Short-Term braces, however. Gum disease or significant misalignment may make this technique unpredictable and therefore not recommended.


In addition to traditional braces, we are certified provider of Invisalign and offer Invisalign for teenager and adult patients who have the desire to go unnoticed as they re-align their smile. Please call our office and arrange for a complimentary examination for orthodontics and Dr. Le and his experienced staff will be happy to provide a no-cost, free consultation to see if you qualify for this amazing technique!
