Are you considering having your teeth straightened but worry about the impact braces will have on your appearance? It can be discouraging to picture yourself at a business meeting or other important occasion wearing a mouthful of metal braces. You want to look better, but isn’t there another option?

In addition to esthetic concerns, a misaligned smile can compromise your oral health by putting you at a higher risk for tooth decay and gum disease. At Alafaya Center for Cosmetic & Family Dentistry, we pride ourselves on offering treatments that improve your oral health and enhance your appearance. 

Everyone’s needs are different, so we’re pleased to offer three discreet and highly effective orthodontic treatments – Invisalign, Six Month Smiles, and Inman Aligners.

Benefits of Invisalign Treatment

Invisalign offers many benefits:

  • Invisalign clear aligners produce amazing results with minimal impact on your life.
  • They’re made of smooth BPA-free plastic that won’t irritate sensitive mouth and gum tissue.
  • You don’t have to wait for years to see the results of your treatment. You’ll see progress every time you change aligners.
  • Total treatment time is dependent on your needs but on average takes between nine and twelve months compared to years for traditional braces
  • The clear aligners are removable, so you don’t have to worry about avoiding foods you love because of metal brackets and wires. 
  • Treatment with Invisalign means fewer visits to the dentist for adjustments, so you don’t have to carve time out of your schedule for multiple checkups.

Six Month Smiles

With long-term orthodontic treatment, the objective is to treat and correct a misaligned dental bite. Six Month Smiles clear braces treatment works in much the same way as traditional orthodontics, with one important difference.

Most adults have crooked teeth that are more of a cosmetic problem than a bite problem. Since we’re not trying to alter your dental bite, Six Month Smiles treatment can be completed quickly because we’re just straightening visible teeth. Six Month Smiles treatment uses clear brackets and tooth-colored wires that won’t alter your appearance during treatment.


The length of treatment time with Six Month Smiles is fast, so in many cases, they are more affordable than other types of braces. Using Six Month Smiles braces, we’ve helped many patients achieve optimal results in approximately four to nine months, with an average treatment time of six months.

State-of-the-Art Inman Aligners

This state-of-the-art, removable orthodontic treatment is perfect for correcting the alignment of the teeth in the front of your mouth that are obvious when smiling. Inman Aligners’ unique treatment comfortably and gently realigns crooked or crowded teeth into their ideal position.

They’re convenient, too; they are removable for eating and brushing and flossing. The best news is that by using Inman Aligners, we can often achieve desired results in a matter of weeks, not years.

This unique treatment works using two sets of aligners – one on the inside and one on the outside of your front teeth. This creates an opposing force that causes the aligners on one side to push the teeth forward and those on the other to pull back on the front teeth. The unique system of Inman Aligners moves your teeth to create the beautiful, straight smile you’ve always wanted.
