Is the thought of a mouthful of metal keeping you from correcting a crooked smile? Well, thanks to advances in orthodontics, it’s easier than ever to get straighter teeth without traditional metal braces!
At Beaumont Family Dentistry, we understand that if you’re looking to address teeth and bit misalignment issues as an adult, you want an orthodontic solution that’s fast and discreet.
That’s why we’re proud to offer treatments that are virtually invisible, as well as treatments that allow you to achieve your ideal smile in as few as three months!
In addition to the cosmetic benefits of orthodontics, straighter teeth can also lead to greater overall oral health. That’s because straighter teeth can be easier to clean, reducing your risk of cavities and gum disease!
If you never had braces as a teenager, or if your teeth have shifted since previous orthodontic treatment, come visit us as one of our three Lexington, KY locations. We’ll help you get the smile you deserve in no time!

In the meantime, read on for some of the orthodontic treatment options we offer.
Traditional metal braces can take two or three years to straighten your teeth. That’s because they typically move the visible part of the tooth (the crown) and the root (the structure that connects the tooth to the jaw bone) separately.
But Fastbraces® does it differently, moving the root and the crown simultaneously to cut down on your treatment time.
How is this possible? In the late 1980s, a dentist who taught at Baylor College of Dentistry set out to create a new type of orthodontic bracket. It was introduced in the early 1990s, and clinical trials found that it was an incredibly effective way to straighten teeth.
Though Fastbraces allows you to achieve a straighter and more beautiful smile in as little as three months, it’s also incredibly gentle.
If you’re considering this revolutionary treatment option, choose Beaumont Family Dentistry for excellent care. Dr. Takacs has extensive experience and expertise with Fastbraces. In fact, she is a speaker, trainer, and Senior Master Provider of Fastbraces®!
First introduced about 20 years ago, Invisalign® was a complete game-changer in the field of orthodontics — and in the lives of millions of people around the world!
The Invisalign treatment system consists of a series of clear plastic aligners. Not only are these aligners virtually invisible, but they also are made to the exact specifications of your mouth. They’ll fit as great as they look!
You’ll wear an aligner for roughly 20 to 22 hours a day, removing it for meals and regular cleanings. Every week or so, you’ll swap out your aligner for the next in the series. Invisalign corrects mild to complex teeth and bite misalignment issues by facilitating gentle, incremental movements that altogether lead to a dramatic transformation!
Invisalign is a great choice for professionals who don’t want to display a mouthful of metal at the office. But it’s also a great choice if you’re active or outdoorsy because you’ll never have to worry about dislodging any brackets or cutting a lip on a pokey wire.
Plus, the average treatment time with Invisalign is only 12 months, so it’s possible that you’ll get a straighter smile faster than you would with traditional braces.
You’ll feel confident in the orthodontic care you receive from Dr. Takacs and her team at Beaumont Family Dentistry because of their experience with the Invisalign treatment system. Dr. Takacs is in the top 1 percent of all Invisalign providers in North America and has earned the highest status a provider can earn!
If it’s determined that you’re not a good candidate for Fastbraces or Invisalign, there’s still a way to straighten your teeth without traditional metal braces. For cases like these, we recommend invisible braces. These braces work the same way traditional metal braces do, but we use a special clear ceramic bracket that’s much less noticeable when you smile.
This still requires the use of a metal wire, but it’s still less distracting than traditional braces.
