Short-Term Orthodontics

Dr. Derek Tieken on Short-term Orthodontics Read Transcript

Orthodontics used to mean years of having an uncomfortable mouthful of metal. But now we offer more modern methods of straightening teeth in our League City, TX dentist office called short-term orthodontics and Invisalign clear beraces. No more closed-lip smiles in photographs or picking bits of food out of braces!

To find out more about our short-term orthodontics options or other cosmetic dentistry treatments, call Tieken Smiles Dentistry at 281-942-6615.

Experienced Cosmetic Dentist

You’re in great hands with our League City , TX dentist Dr. J. Derek Tieken, a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, and our capable dental team. Dr. Derek Tieken has appeared on Bay Area Houston Magazine’s annual list of best dentists for 16 years straight. He beautified the smiles of two former holders of the Mrs. Texas title!

Invisalign Advantages

Tieken Smiles Dentistry is a Preferred Invisalign Provider. Invisalign uses a series of customized clear plastic aligners instead of metal wires and brackets to shift your teeth into place. Invisalign advantages include:

  • Appearance. The clear, BPA-free plastic aligners are practically invisible. Most people probably won’t even noticing you’re wearing them! And you can remove them for special occasions.
  • Convenience. Your treatment involves simply moving to a new aligner every few weeks. You won’t have to make as many trips to our League City, TX dentist office for adjustments during your treatment.
  • Comfort. With no brackets or wire to rub against your mouth, most people find Invisalign more comfortable than braces.
  • Ease of care. Because you take them out when eating and drinking, food won’t get caught in your aligners. And you remove them when brushing and flossing, so good oral hygiene couldn’t be simpler.

ClearCorrect: Another Choice for Orthodontic Aligners

We like to offer our patients choices with their dental treatments whenever possible. So Tieken Smiles Dentistry also offers ClearCorrect, another brand of clear plastic aligners that is similar to Invisalign. In a complimentary consultation, Dr. Derek Tieken can help you determine which short-term orthodontics treatment is the best option for you.

Faster Orthodontics Treatment

Whether you choose Invisalign or ClearCorrect, we can speed your treatment time with Propel, a line of orthodontics products that can reduce your treatment time by as much as 50 percent. For example, using Propel, some patients change their Invisalign aligners every 10 days instead of every 14 days. Propel works with traditional braces too!

The Propel procedure takes just minutes and uses a patented process that stimulates new bone growth in treatment areas. Propel was selected as one of the top 50 technology products in Dentistry Today’s 2014 Readers’ Choice awards.

Tieken Smiles Dentistry will give you a beautifully straight smile in a short period of time! Call 281-942-6615 for an appointment in our League City, TX dentist office. Or use our handy online form.
