Six Month Smiles® Provides Rapid Results and a More Attractive Smile
Dr. Robert W. Hessberger can help you address dental misalignment and other minor cosmetic orthodontic issues efficiently and effectively with Six Month Smiles®. This cosmetic dentistry treatment uses clear brackets, tooth-colored wires, and clear ligature elastics to provide a conservative and inconspicuous alternative to traditional metal braces. Six Month Smiles provides the best qualities of traditional braces, modified with aesthetically-pleasing and more comfortable materials to give adult patients a better alternative to straightening their smiles in as little time as possible. Treatment time is generally quicker than what ClearCorrect aligner trays can provide. This orthodontic treatment takes a low-force approach to moving teeth into proper alignment, making it a comfortable and convenient option.
Is Six Month Smiles Right For You?
If you have healthy teeth and gums but are unhappy with the appearance of your smile due to minor dental misalignment issues—such as gapped, overlapped, crowded, or crooked teeth—you may be a good candidate for Six Month Smiles. This treatment is generally reserved for patients 15 years or older with fully developed primary teeth. Our teenage and adult patients find this treatment extremely beneficial for its fairly discreet materials and quick results.
Six Month Smiles uses the latest technology and techniques to quickly and gently shift your teeth into proper placement with low force.
For patients with significant bite issues or more complex dental misalignment, traditional metal braces are typically considered to be a better option. Dr. Hessberger will perform a complete examination of your teeth and jawbone using x-ray technology to determine if you are a good candidate for Six Month Smiles. Once your candidacy has been established, Dr. Hessberger or a member of our team will take impressions of your teeth to create a treatment plan tailored to your unique needs.
