At Dent-Al Smiles we understand the importance on having a nice and straight smile. Some of our Adult patient do not like the idea of having Veneers or other treatment since sometimes it is necessary to reduce healthy tooth structure to obtain good results. We offer them a new system developed by Dr. Lazo. 8in8str8. Using the newest and best Orthodontic techniques and materials we are now capable on correcting most of the smiles in 8 months , this provides a good alternative to the Traditional Braces 18 to 24 months). Now, we are proudly offering our system 8in8str8®. Some of the other benefits of our system is that most of the time we do not need to extract any teeth. Our tooth colored braces and tooth colored wires makes wearing braces almost invisible. Our system is gentle but very effective correcting teeth malpositions as: Crowding, Overbite, Spacing, Overjet, Underbite, Openbite, Misplace Midline and Crossbite.
It is important to mention that we only focus on the 8 most anterior teeth or the teeth that are showing when you smile, that has help us on reducing the treatment time as well.
