SouthEnd Orthodontic Offerings

In order to provide the most effective treatment to each SouthEnd Dentistry patient, Charlotte dentist offers the top three clear braces options on the market today. Invisalign and Clear Correct use clear, plastic aligners to gently shift teeth to the desired position, improving functionality, aesthetic and oral hygiene. Depending on the individual, both of these treatments takes about a year to complete. For even faster treatment, Six Month Smiles can get you the smile you want in half the time. When teeth need aligning, you can rely on our dentist expertise and recommendation on which system is best suited for your needs. But you can learn more about all three options below or by calling us today.



How Aligners Work

When you make your first appointment for aligners, Dr. Picot will take a digital impression or scan of your smile. Depending on the kind of aligner is recommended, this model will be rendered by a computer in our office or off-site. The model will be used to create a comprehensive set of aligners to be used over a longer period of time.

Once you receive your aligners, you’ll be expected to wear them for most of the day and make regular visits to our office so Dr. Picot can track your progress. As teeth move towards where your treatment plan intends, you will progress to new aligner sets. Once your teeth reach the desired position, you’ll be fitted with a retainer to ensure your newly straightened smile stays right where it should be.

Clear Options Keep You Confident

It’s easier to get excited about your new smile – and follow the plan – when you know you’ll feel good during treatment.

Treatment Options

Charlotte NC Cosmetic Dentist


Our most popular orthodontic treatment is Invisalign. These customized aligners are made to gradually shift uneven smiles back into place, and even fix some major gaps! The best part of invisalign is that the aligners are clear and fit snugly over your teeth, so you can wear them for long periods of time in comfort and without sacrificing the look of your smile.

Clear Correct

In addition to Invisalign, SouthEnd Dentistry also offers other brands of aligners and recommends them depending on the case and individual needs of the patient. For certain patients, we may recommend Clear Correct as an alternative. Similar to Invisalign, Clear Correct offers discrete treatment with clear, plastic aligners. And it’s a totally removeable system, so you can maintain great oral hygiene.


Six Month Smiles

For adults in particular, we often recommend 6-Month Smiles. This is a clear braces alternative that focuses on the aesthetics of your smile. Because the concentration is on beautifully straight teeth, the process becomes shorter. Within 6 months, you’ll have the smile you’ve always wanted!
