A lot can happen in six months, but many patients are unaware that they can change cosmetic misalignment. Braces are often thought of as a slow, unattractive way to achieve a more beautiful smile when misalignment is an issue. However, many individuals in the Longview area do not want to speak to an orthodontist for fear their treatment may take many years to achieve a new smile, and that they would have metal brackets and wires covering their teeth for that long. Thankfully, dental solutions have changed over the years and now allow patients to enjoy braces for more beautiful smiles within six months in a discreet manner.
Dr. Clint Bruyere of Longview offers cosmetic braces for more beautiful smiles. With a process known as Six Month Smiles, patients can achieve an attractive look in just a few months without traditional metal brackets and wires. Instead, this method of treatment uses clear brackets and wires that are adhered to the teeth to reposition them but in a faster way. Additionally, they are far less noticeable than traditional braces.
Six Month Smiles can be used for patients with mild misalignment of the teeth near the front of the mouth, the teeth sometimes referred to as the “social six.” These teeth are easy to reposition and it is done strictly for cosmetic reasons. If patients have poor bite alignment or other issues, they may need to visit an orthodontist for traditional braces. However, minor adjustments may be easily addressed with treatments such as Six Month Smiles.
