Now available at our Sterling location, Six Month Smiles is a clear braces system that is a modern alternative to traditional orthodontic treatment. Utilizing clear braces and tooth-colored wires, Six Month Smiles is a discreet treatment for crooked teeth. In an average of six months, this system delivers straightened teeth comfortably and effectively.
Fixing crooked teeth in the “smile zone”, this method can also realign patient’s bites for a more comfortable, balanced smile. It can be the ideal solution for adult patients with mild to moderate cosmetic concerns or who are experiencing orthodontic relapse as they grow older. Six Month Smiles may provide fewer risks of damage to teeth and gums because the clear braces and wires are lighter than traditional metal braces.
Dr. Datta Malyavantham of Ridgetop Dental has extensive experience with cosmetic and restorative dental treatments. Before placing your Six Month Smiles clear braces, Dr. Datta will evaluate your bite and overall oral health to create a customized treatment plan.
Straightening crooked teeth will not only boost your smile confidence but will also improve your overall dental health. Crooked teeth can be more difficult to clean with brushing and flossing, are more prone to damage over time and can lead to bite problems.
The Six Month Smiles Treatment Process
Following a consultation with Dr. Datta outlining your cosmetic and dental needs, dental impressions will be taken to help create custom clear braces. Digital photography will also be used to determine where your teeth and bite are currently located.
Dr. Datta will attach the clear brackets and wires in-office. You will also need regular checkup appointments to monitor your treatment progress.
In about six months, your new straight smile will be ready. After the braces are removed, we recommend the use of a retainer worn nightly to ensure that your teeth remain straight.
