Orthodontics

When was the last time you smiled with confidence? Living with teeth that are crooked or overlapped is embarrassing, and you may feel self-conscious about smiling or talking in front of other people. Perhaps you’ve considered wearing braces, but you don’t like the idea of spending years wearing bulky metal brackets and wires.

What if your braces were hardly noticeable? What if treatment could be completed in a matter of months? Six Months Smiles may be just the solution you’re looking for!

What Is Six Month Smiles?

Traditional orthodontics offers the most predictable and reliable results when it comes to aligning your teeth. Six Month Smiles utilizes traditional brackets and wires but offers a twist to make them hardly noticeable and more comfortable to wear. This system also achieves more efficient results at a lesser cost.

The secret behind the success of Six Months Smiles lies in the fact that the braces are used to align your sight line, or the front six teeth that people see the most when you smile. The brackets used are clear and the ultra-thin wire is tooth colored so your braces are virtually invisible. Because of the focus on straightening only the sight line, most cases can be completed in as little as a few months.

SixMonth Smiles is a great solution for patients who would like a straighter smile and quick results achieved with discretion!

Why Is it Important to Straighten My Teeth?

Crooked teeth definitely take a toll on your confidence, but did you know that they’re also impacting your oral health? This is because teeth that are crooked are harder to brush and floss properly because they tend to overlap. When you can’t keep your teeth clean, you have a higher risk of developing issues such as tooth decay or gum disease.

Teeth that are straight also help keep your bite in alignment. This prevents headaches, clenching, grinding, and issues with your jaw joint. Straighter teeth not only give you a beautiful smile, they give you improved oral health.
