If you’re a Copperas Cove resident that is tired of having crooked or overlapped teeth and have given up on the possibility of straightening them due to cost or embarrassment of wearing traditional braces, Dr. Grantham has an option that may be perfect for you. Six Month Smiles® short-term orthodontic treatment is a modern twist on tried-and-true orthodontics. Six Month Smiles has taken the best aspects of braces and modified the treatment and the materials to give you a sensible cosmetic solution that fits your lifestyle. Here is what makes Six Month Smiles so innovative:
- Average treatment times of only six months
- Six Month Smiles Lucid-Lok® clear brackets and tooth-colored wires are barely visible

If your problems are more severe and a cosmetic solution is not enough, Dr. Grantham can also consult with you about traditional braces. Like everything in dentistry, braces have come a long way in recent years. Gone are the days of bulky and uncomfortable braces – new materials allow for options that are lighter, thinner, and less noticeable. Get the straight teeth you have always wanted with braces from Dr. Grantham.
Why choose traditional braces?
According to studies by the American Association of Orthodontists, crooked teeth, crowded teeth, overlapped teeth, and gaps between teeth can cause larger problems.
Crowded teeth are more difficult to brush and floss, which can lead to tooth decay and gum disease. Protruding teeth are more susceptible to accidental chipping. Cross-bites can lead to unbecoming growth and uneven tooth wear. Open-bites can cause tongue-thrusting habits and speech impediments. Ultimately, traditional braces do more than make a pretty smile — they create a healthier you.
If you are worried about the potential cost of teeth straightening, we want you to know that we are proud to offer our patients in-office financing options, so you don’t have to choose between your other obligations and your dental health. We can help you get the dental care you need at a price you can afford.
