Do I have to have metal braces as an adult?

adult orthodontics mount pleasant sc Many adults come to us with questions about orthodontics. The type of orthodontics that works best for you depends on what you are trying to accomplish with your smile. We understand that as an adult, you probably want a solution that is as fast and discreet as possible.

At East Cooper Smiles, we offer two orthodontic options for our adult patients to improve the appearance of their smiles. 

Six Month Braces

Six Month Braces is an orthodontic system that allows for targeted treatment designed to improve the aesthetics of your smile. Six Month Braces is both fast and affordable, often taking only six months on average to complete and costing about half of what traditional metal braces cost. 

The main purpose of Six Month Braces is to improve the appearance of your front teeth so that you can smile confidently.


Invisalign provides an alternative to traditional braces that utilizes clear plastic aligner trays to gradually move your teeth to their ideal position. You will switch out your trays every two weeks or so and each tray gets you closer to your ideal smile. The length of your treatment depends on how far your teeth need to move and how compliant you are with wearing your trays.

Because you can remove your Invisalign aligners to eat and clean your teeth, you can avoid many of the hygienic issues that come with traditional braces. Their crystal clear appearance is practically invisible and completely smooth, providing exceptional comfort. 

Contact our office and schedule a consultation to determine the orthodontic treatment that will work best for you.
