Cosmetic Braces

Braces help straighten crooked teeth and ensure you have a healthy smile. However, with metal brackets and wires, braces do not look or feel great while you wear them. Although braces are necessary for oral hygiene, the traditional metal braces design is not your only option for restoring your smile. Feeling self-conscious? Feeling like you’re ready for self-improvement? Whatever your lifestyle, it doesn’t take years to look your best. Hillcrest Dental is proud to offer Six Month Smiles cosmetic braces, an alternative to standard braces.

Six Month Smiles is the clear braces solution for adults that straightens teeth in less time, for a lower cost. More conventional than the traditional option, Six Month Smiles allows you to smile every single day of your journey. These braces are designed and built with tooth-colored wires so they look almost invisible against your teeth. Many people will not even realize you are wearing them, so you can put your best foot forward everyday with confidence.

Six Month Smiles also straighten your teeth in just six months, so you do not have to wear your adult braces for as long. You will no longer spend years with bulky, metal braces compromising your smile. You will be on a faster track for a better smile without the pain, discomfort, and appearance of regular braces.

At Hillcrest Dental, our compassionate staff will make you as comfortable as possible while being fitted for your braces and during your routine check-ups. Our highly trained dentists will keep you up to date about your progress and make adjustments to your treatment plan if needed. Our goal is to help you love your smile, and we are proud to offer Six Month Smiles clear cosmetic braces to accomplish this goal.

  • "I am very pleased with how my appointment went yesterday. Everyone was really friendly. They explained everything to me about the procedure and stayed late to assure I was comfortable with the work I had done. Dr Ryan Buckwalter and his assistants were awesome. I highly recommend them for any dental work. Thank you."

  • "I was having toothache pain in my lower jaw. I called the next day to make an appointment and was given an appointment time for the very next day. I saw Dr. Ryan, who is knowledgeable, caring and has great people skills with his patients. I made another appointment to come back and have the work done."

  • “Dr. Buckwalter and his assistant did a wonderful job with our 8 year old today. While they were busy talking teeth, my 3 year old was enjoying his new lip balm and balloon! Finished up with a treat from Starbucks with our gift card. So glad our kiddos don’t fear the dentist. More like they want to keep stopping in."
