FAQs: Straighter Smiles in Just Six Months

We all want a beautiful smile that we proudly show the world. Unfortunately, for many people misalignment stands between them and optimal dental health. To obtain a stunning smile, you may require orthodontic treatment. At Calcagno Cosmetic and Family Dentistry, your Rochester MN dentists can help you enjoy an even smile with the innovative Six Month Smiles system.

Frequently Asked Questions About Six Month Smiles

Question: How does Six Month Smiles work?

Answer: Like other orthodontic systems, Six Month Smiles employs brackets and wires to gently reposition the teeth. However, the big difference is we use clear brackets and the tooth-colored wires. As a result, you enjoy inconspicuous smile correction.

Question: Who qualifies for this treatment?

Answer: We recommend this unique system to adults and teens with minor misalignment. Major malocclusion may require more extensive orthodontic treatment. Dr. Calcagno or Dr. Heimer will carefully exam your smile to see if you qualify for orthodontic treatment.

Question: Does my Rochester MN dentist offer a free consultation?

Answer: Yes. We currently offer our patients a free cosmetic consultation. During this complimentary visit, we will take a look at your cosmetic issues and assess the cause and extent. We can then decide the best course of treatment so you can enjoy a beautiful, healthy smile once again.

Question: What are the benefits of orthodontic treatment?

Answer: First, the orthodontics are practically invisible. This system also uses low forces, so treatment is more comfortable when compared to other orthodontic systems. The entire treatment period only takes six months, instead of the typical year and a half to two years. If you have any questions or concerns about Six Month Smiles, please contact our office today.
