Houston area dentist describes 6 Month Smiles
The word orthodontics scares teenagers and adults alike. The idea of metal bracket and wire braces can be intimidating for patients of all ages and the thought of dealing with orthodontics for months—even years—can turn many patients off to the idea of straightening their teeth. However, patients who are interested in addressing cosmetic misalignment of the teeth near the front of their mouth may benefit from a treatment called 6 Month Smiles.
6 Month Smiles is available for patients ages 16 and older. This method of orthodontic treatment is available to Houston area patients at Vivid Dental. Instead of using unsightly metal brackets and wires, 6 Month Smiles utilizes clear or tooth-colored brackets and wires that are much more discreet. Patients can enjoy fast repositioning of their teeth and enjoy a straighter smile by their next dental cleaning and examination.
6 Month Smiles is used for mild to moderate misalignment of the anterior teeth. These teeth near the front of the mouth are visible when patients smile. Patients with moderate to severe misalignment, or those who need to realign their bite, may benefit from a visit to an orthodontist to determine the options available to them to treat malocclusion.
Cosmetic treatments such as 6 Month Smiles are highly desirable because they are fast, easy, affordable, and discreet. At Vivid Dental, we are committed to providing our patients with a wide range of aesthetic services to help them improve and enhance their natural smile in a way that fits their lifestyle. 6 Month Smiles can provide teenagers and adults with the solution they need to remedy imperfections of the smile and rejuvenate their look.
