Patients enjoy alternatives to traditional orthodontics such as Six Month Smiles cosmetic braces at Longview dental practice
Misaligned, crowded, or overlapping teeth can cause people to hide their smiles when they feel embarrassed. Many patients will ask if traditional metal braces is the only treatment for straightening the teeth. Thanks to advances in cosmetic dentistry and orthodontics, there are alternatives to metal braces for achieving a more beautiful smile. For the teeth that show when smiling, Six Month Smiles can be the ideal treatment. Patients can find the cosmetic solution at Dr. Clint Bruyere’s dental practice in Longview.
Six Months Smiles is a cosmetic solution that can be ideal for teenagers as well as adults. Since treatment is focused on gently moving teeth into place, rather than the bite position, patients can typically achieve results in six months. This is just one of many advantages over traditional metal braces. Aesthetics leads as a top reason patients choose Six Month Smiles. Tooth-colored brackets and nearly invisible wires are placed on the teeth. The natural looking braces blend nicely with the smile. Many patients ask what can be expected before, during, and after Six Month Smiles treatment. Dr. Bruyere and his team are happy to explain.
The first step toward straighter teeth is to schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Bruyere. He will examine your mouth, teeth, and gums and review your medical history. At the appointment, impressions are taken of your dental arches. Six Month Smiles technicians use these molds to create your customized tray kits, which ensure proper placement of the brackets. When the kits arrive, Dr. Bruyere will place the brackets and wires onto your teeth. After treatment, he will provide a customized removable retainer to wear at night to help prevent teeth from shifting.
With Six Month Smiles, you can look forward to the following benefits:
- The tray kits can help ensure appointments are comfortable and fast.
- Straighter teeth are easier to keep clean and healthy.
- Treatment is typically less expensive than traditional metal braces.
