Use ClearCorrect to get a straighter, more beautiful smileMany adults would like to improve their smile by straightening their teeth; however, they believe braces are for kids or teenagers. While it's true that orthodontic treatment is often a rite of passage for adolescence, there are many adults benefiting from it, as well. In some cases adults who did not have braces as a teenager wish for alignment changes, while in other situations, adults who have had orthodontic treatment found their teeth have shifted out of proper place.
In either case, many adults are thrilled to learn that there's a new option when it comes to orthodontics. Instead of traditional braces with sharp wires and full brackets, dentists; such as Dr. Gordon Kent of Smile Center in Buffalo New York, are offering ClearCorrect. This new alternative to braces is a simple way to straighten teeth without the hassle of monthly appointments and the embarrassment of traditional braces.
Using a series of clear plastic alignment trays, patients simply follow the predetermined plan of treatment. The alignment trays work by gradually shifting your teeth into proper position. The alignment trays are clear and practically invisible to the patient's family, friends, and co-workers. Because the treatment plan is predetermined, patients simply move onto the next tray after a certain number of weeks. This eliminates the need for monthly appointments where the wires are tightened.
Another benefit of ClearCorrect over traditional braces is that the trays can be removed. This means patients don't have to give up their favorite foods over fears; such as breaking a bracket or pulling off a wire. It also allows the patient to remove the trays for brushing and flossing leading to better oral health during orthodontic treatment.
ClearCorrect is a great alternative for many patients. Not only does it give individuals a chance to improve their smile and have the confidence to show it off, but better teeth alignment leads to less risk of gum disease and tooth decay.

I would recommend this place to anyone..I was such a coward and embarrassed about my teeth and really didn't want to go to any other dentists. Smile center caters to coward and they have changed my life forever. Thank you so much.
I have a great deal of anxiety in having dental procedures, even very easy things like routine cleanings. Everyone at the Smile Center made me feel as comfortable as I could and put my nerves at ease. My recent dental work was completely painless, and the doctor, as well as her assistants, were kind and gentle. ~ Saram.
The staff at the Smile Center is very friendly. They always make sure to return my phone call as soon as possible. They've never left me waiting. I was glad that they were located in a safe neighborhood. They've never rushed my teeth cleaning. They always go above and beyond to make sure my teeth look and feel fantastic. They remind me of appointments with a card in the mail and a phone call, which is very helpful. I used to be a little dental phobic, but they calmed my fears. I always recommend them to people who are looking for a new dental clinic. ~ ELAINE M.
