Options for Straightening Your Teeth

Believe it or not, there are many different options when it comes to straightening your teeth. Besides the basic metal braces, there are other alternatives available for you to consider. Dr. Rajeev Kulkarni offers expertise and many different services that suit your orthodontic needs. Orthodontic Options
For years in the Wethersfield area, braces have been a popular choice in teeth straightening procedures. So many patients through the years have endured the typical metal style of braces, but did you know that there are newer, and more appealing options? Some alternatives to metal braces are even removable! Sounds pretty good, right? Read on to learn more about the best route you should take for you and your smile.

Dr. Kulkarni’s Office Has All of Your Orthodontic Needs

Our office wants you to know the different orthodontic treatments we offer so that you can weigh out your options.
  • Metal Braces – Metal braces have been a popular option for years and years. They are made up of a high-grade stainless steel and consist of metal bands that wrap around the molars in the back of your mouth. Small metal brackets are then cemented to the front of the other teeth. Metal braces have proven to be consistent, effective and an economical option.
  • Ceramic Braces – Rather than a metal material, ceramic braces are made from a translucent material the blends in with your tooth color. This option is much less noticeable than metal braces.
  • Clear Aligners – Clear aligners are clear alternatives to braces. Most adults do not want braces to be seen on their teeth or stuck on their teeth. Clear aligners are completely removable, which is ideal for eating, tooth-brushing and flossing.
Now that you have a good idea of the numerous possibilities of getting that perfect smile, it’s time to contact us to discuss which option is right for you.
