Braces

Traditional Smile Correction

How is your bite? When you bite down and feel how your teeth fit together, are there gaps? Can you put your tongue between your upper and lower teeth? If your bite has any of these problems, you may be a candidate for braces. 

Pure Smiles Orthodontics in Austin, Texas provides braces to patients in need of smile correction. They’re an excellent method for correcting teeth that are crooked, crowded, misaligned, protruding, or irregularly spaced.

For patients with misaligned smiles, Dr. Silvana Gonzalez can create an individualized orthodontic treatment plan to correct your smile with braces and give you the smile you’ve been looking for.

Are braces painful?

When the brackets are being applied to the teeth, it is a painless process. There may be some mild soreness or discomfort after the archwire is installed into the brackets. This is natural, and may last for a few days up to a week.

What is the average cost for braces?

Depending on your type of insurance, the price of braces can range widely. Common prices for braces range from $3,500 to $8,000, with a variety of payment options and financing available. If you have questions about the cost of braces for your orthodontic treatment, we are happy to answer them.

What is the best age to get braces?

There is not a specific “best” age to get braces. For younger patients, orthodontic treatments like braces are most effective between ages 10 and 14. This gives us a chance to straighten their teeth before their jaw is finished growing and while some of their permanent teeth may still be growing.

How long will I have to wear braces?

The length of your orthodontic treatment plan depends your unique needs. Braces may be worn for a time of 6 months up to 3 years.

What causes crooked or crowded teeth?

A variety of factors can contribute to a misaligned smile. These include missing or extra teeth, thumb sucking, jaw function issues, and others.
