How Orthodontics in Aspen, CO Can Help Improve Your Smile

At Aspen Smile Dentistry, we are dedicated to helping you achieve the best smile possible. Many patients that visit the dental office are interested in our orthodontic dentistry options. We offer two orthodontic options: Invisalign and traditional braces. On our website, we have pages that explain each treatment option. 

Are You Happy With Your Smile?

Your smile is one of the first things people notice when meeting you for the first time, so you should feel confident flashing it in public. If you find yourself shying away from photos or covering your mouth when you laugh, don’t lose hope. 

If you want to feel better about the appearance of your smile, many options can help you. You can perform remedies at home, such as teeth whitening kits or improving your oral health regimen. But for those teeth that need a little more work, orthodontics may be the answer.

What is Orthodontics?

Orthodontics is any corrective treatment that straightens teeth. Using corrective appliances such as braces, orthodontic treatment improves one’s smile by adjusting the position and appearance of crooked or misaligned teeth. 

At Aspen Smile Dentistry, we’re proud to offer both Invisalign and traditional braces. Both are effective options with some differences that might suit your needs depending on your dental goals. 

Many patients love Invisalign. Invisalign is great for patients who want to align their smiles discreetly. Traditional braces are great for many patients, especially those with a more complex treatment who enjoy the classic look of braces. Call our office today, and we can schedule you a consultation to see which orthodontic treatment is best for you. 


How Can an Orthodontist Help You Transform Your Smile?

  • Orthodontics can improve confidence.

One of the main reasons people opt for orthodontic treatment is that they don’t like how their teeth look. An uneven smile can affect people’s confidence and self-esteem. Orthodontics can correct teeth that are crooked or crowded, as well as the positioning of the jaw in more severe cases. 

And if you’re worried about the appearance of braces, you’ll be pleased to hear that there are much more discreet options, such as Invisalign aligners which are practically invisible. 

  • Orthodontics can correct malocclusion or bite disorder.

Orthodontics is not just about looks. Sometimes it is also necessary to improve the function of your teeth. Issues with the shape of your bite can cause problems with eating certain food items, making it more challenging to enjoy a complete, healthy diet. Crowding and malposition of the teeth can also cause difficulty speaking for some people. 

  • Orthodontics can improve oral health.

When teeth are crooked or misaligned in the mouth, their position can make it challenging to clean them properly. Poor oral health can lead to staining, bad breath, and eventually tooth decay and gum disease. Orthodontic treatment to correct your teeth makes it easier to reach every surface and maintain the health of your mouth so you can feel confident about flashing your pearly whites whenever the mood takes you.


  • Orthodontic treatment can provide various other benefits.

With braces, as long as you continue to wear retainers after your treatment is over, you will never have to worry about your smile again.

Although orthodontics is not an immediate fix, it improves long-term confidence and physical health over time. There are other, quicker cosmetic options available such as veneers. But orthodontic treatment offers more long-term benefits and less risk of damage to the teeth. Orthodontics also prioritizes keeping your natural teeth in place.
