Addressing Your Dental Needs

If you or a loved one struggles with issues such as crooked teeth, bite misalignment, or jaw pain, braces may be able to help. When left to their own devices, these issues can cause more serious problems in the future such as tooth loss and TMD (commonly known as TMJ disorder).

SureSmile® clear aligners and Six Month Smiles tooth-colored braces discreetly align your smile to give you natural-looking results. These methods can not only improve your appearance and self-confidence but also your overall oral health by preventing other dental issues.

SureSmile® clear aligners can quickly upgrade your smile and your quality of life through a simple, streamlined process. These aligners are also removable, allowing you to eat freely and maintain proper dental hygiene.

Improve Your Quality of Life

Your smile is your signature—it’s uniquely you. If you are not comfortable with your smile, you may cover your mouth when smiling or laughing, avoid speaking in public, or prefer eating in private.

When you join the McCullough dentistry family, you’ll receive transformative orthodontic care that will improve your confidence and quality of life.

At McCullough Dental, we understand how hard it is to feel self-conscious about your smile. That’s why our team will do everything they can to help you regain your confidence and achieve a healthy, beautiful smile.

Our team stays up to date with the latest technology. The advances in equipment, x-rays, impressions, and other technologies have made dental procedures safer, faster, and more precise. This technology plays a big part in helping us give you the healthy smile you’ve always wanted.

For instance, we use many different innovative instruments to ensure your clear aligners are a perfect fit. Once we determine the precise measurements of your mouth, we’ll provide you with Six Month Smiles braces or SureSmile® aligners to straighten your teeth for a picture-perfect smile.

Our Treatment Options

At McCullough Dental, your health is our greatest priority. That’s why we offer two main types of orthodontic services along with our general dentistry services.

SureSmile® Clear Aligners

The SureSmile® system is an innovative approach to orthodontics. This treatment uses clear aligners that slide comfortably over your teeth, making small adjustments over time. After a few weeks, you’ll switch to new aligners that will move your teeth slightly closer to where we want them to end up.

If you choose SureSmile® aligners, you can expect comfort, convenience, and discretion during your orthodontic treatment.

Six Month Smiles

This brand of braces uses clear brackets and tooth-colored wires that work together to move your teeth faster than most other orthodontic methods. Your treatment will be discreet and, like the name suggests, complete in as few as six months!

If you need straight teeth fast, Six Month Smiles is the choice for you.

Frequently Asked Questions about Orthodontic Treatment

Will orthodontic treatment hurt my oral health?

Some worry that long-term care such as orthodontic treatment will negatively affect their oral health. With SureSmile® clear aligners in particular, it should not stop you from maintaining proper dental hygiene since they are removable.

When you receive orthodontic treatment that aligns your smile, it allows for easier cleaning and fewer spots for bacteria to hide and build. Overall, orthodontic care should improve your oral health as long as you are practicing proper dental hygiene.

How long is the process?

Since all of our dental treatments are customized, the length of our orthodontic care will depend on your current smile situation and what you want your smile to look like at the end of treatment.

SureSmile® clear aligners tend to be a quicker form of orthodontic care because the aligners are customized to your smile and cover the entire tooth, fully encompassing your smile. The Six Month Smiles, hence the name, usually takes six months.

To start the process, we will start with a consultation where we evaluate your smile and discuss your needs and goals. We will create a treatment plan based on the results and give you an estimate of the length of your treatment. As care continues we will reevaluate and make adjustments to keep your plan on track.
