A New You in 2015, with Six Month Smiles

Before long, we’ll be ushering in 2015. But if you traveled back in time to any average middle school, say, 20 or 30 years ago, you’d be likely to witness a sea of adolescent tin grins. The process of keeping this unsightly, bulky metal on young teeth to straighten them out could last up to four years for some young children, and be uncomfortable every step of the way. Traditional orthodontic braces might still be the best course of action for certain needs, but these days, we have options that are not only virtually invisible, but fast. Rochester dentist, Dr. Gilly Calcagno describes how you can possibly have straightened teeth before next summer is even here, thanks to Six Month Smiles.

Did You Have Braces?

Perhaps you weren’t one of those lucky adolescents who had expensive metal braces on your teeth for years on end, and got it out of the way. Or maybe you didn’t faithfully wear your retainer for the time prescribed to you by your orthodontist after your braces were removed. For various reasons, many adults are not happy with the way their teeth look, and feel downright embarrassed to smile. This is no way to live. Imagine being able to resolve your smile insecurities without the treatment being so obvious. Six Month Smiles makes this possible with clear brackets and wires that blend in with your tooth color, and are nearly invisible.

Fast and Furious Alignment of Teeth

Most adults aren’t going to be comfortable wearing traditional braces in the work place for a week, let alone a year or two. The Six Month Smiles program eliminates much of the embarrassment with clear brackets and wires, as mentioned above, all while reducing the length necessary for treatment. Almost all cases can be resolved within the six month timeframe. Six Month Smiles uses gentle force, which many patients report as being a much more comfortable orthodontic treatment than they expected.
