Crooked, uneven teeth are often perfected through orthodontics during your teen years. For adults, and increasingly for teens, the thought of metal braces are enough to keep them away from repairing these unsightly and often functionally impairing conditions. Understanding this, the experienced Grand Strand area orthodontists at Carolina Center for Advanced Dentistry offer our patients alternatives to traditional braces, allowing your smile to be corrected in a much less invasive and noticeable way.


Invisalign is a series of removable, clear plastic teeth aligners that provide an attractive cosmetic alternative to traditional braces. The advantages of Invisalign include:

Superior comfort

Removability for increased ease of chewing or nights out with friends

Increased ability to clean teeth

Significantly reduced instances of tooth and teeth root shortening

Results in less than half the time of traditional braces

Invisalign corrects your teeth gradually, requiring a new set of aligners be placed every two weeks. Using this process, Invisalign can help create a beautifully straight smile in as little as 12 months. You do not need to see one of our dentists every time you change aligners, meaning you can spend less time with us and more time doing the things you want to do.

Clear Correct

Clear Correct offers the same advantages of Invisalign and has been proven effective in correcting:

Spaces and gaps between teeth

Crooked teeth

Overbite and underbite

Crowded teeth

We also offer conventional orthodontic treatment through barackets and archwires on a case by case basis.

Every mouth is unique, and no one solution is ideally suited for every smile. The cosmetic dentists at Carolina Center for Advanced Dentistry are devoted to providing both functional and impeccably beautiful results, and will work closely with you to determine which process will most suite your needs.
