Rating: 5 Dermatologist Walnut Creek - Five Star Reviews By James W.
Dr. William E. Virtue DDS, FIAOMT, NMD
I have been going to Dr. Virtue's dental office for many years after going to many other dentists in the area with no sucess. This practice is the TOTAL EXPERIENCE! From the time in walk in until you walk out you feel that not only are you in the best hands but that you are among experienced, caring friends. Not only do they care about their patients but about each other and it is apparent from the first visit. If you are looking for a dentist I strongly recommend Virtue Dental Care in Yadkinville. It is worth trying. Bet you can't just go one time!

The advantages of adult cosmetic braces in NC go beyond aesthetics

Cosmetic braces have become increasingly popular as a way to straighten teeth without traditional metal braces. Originally designed for image conscious teens or professionals, cosmetic braces systems such as Six Month Smiles are clear to allow patients to fix mild to moderate alignment issues discreetly. While concern about the appearance of the smile might lead patients to explore options for cosmetic braces, the advantages go far beyond the aesthetics of the smile. Improved alignment can help improve oral health. As teeth begin to shift into proper position patients will enjoy the following benefits:
  • Improved oral hygiene. Teeth that are crowded together are notoriously hard to keep clean and more susceptible to decay from lingering food particles. Teeth that are properly aligned are much easier to clean with a toothbrush and floss. In addition, an improvement in brushing and flossing can cut down on plaque build-up and minimize the risk of the beginning stage of gum disease known as gingivitis.
  • Improved bite. The way the top and bottom dental arch fit together is extremely important for many factors. Problems with the bite (or occlusion) can lead to issues with the health of the mouth and jaw, the appearance of the face, and can be connected with TMJ. An improved bite will improve the functionality, health, and beauty of the smile.
  • Improved self-esteem. A lot of our confidence is derived from the way we feel about ourselves. When you are embarrassed by a particular feature, such as a crooked smile, it can affect that confidence. Adult cosmetic braces help confidence in two ways. The first is allowing patients to feel confident during treatment rather than constantly worried about the appearance of braces. The second is giving patients back the desire to share their smile and feel good about their appearance.
The bottom line is straighter teeth are healthier teeth, and a straighter smile can improve confidence. At Virtue Dental Care in NC, we offer Six Month Smiles as a subtle alternative to traditional braces. The time for your new smile is now. Call us today at (336) 600-1179 for your consultation.
