Six Month Smiles

Six Months to a Straighter Smile

Braces are the most commonly used, and the most effective, method to straight patients’ teeth. Dr. Hussong offers Six Months Smiles, an innovative system, and a great choice for image-conscious, sophisticated adults. The brackets and wires of Six Month Smiles match teeth, so they aren’t obvious. They look more natural. Furthermore, treatment time is reduced by approximately 75%, so you can enjoy a straight, beautiful smile in about six months. If you would like an even, beautiful smile, then consider Six Month Smiles from Cornerstone Dental.

Will Misalignment Hurt My Dental Health?

Yes. Uneven teeth cause more than just esthetic issues. Crooked or crowded teeth provide a number of hiding places for bacteria and stray food particles. As bacteria break down these particles, the teeth become coated in a layer of plaque that weakens tooth enamel and inflames the gums. As a result, you can experience an increased risk of tooth decay or gum disease. Misalignment also places inordinate pressure on the jaw joints, often leading to the onset of TMJ disorder and even bruxism (teeth grinding). If you suffer from smile misalignment, then you should consider orthodontic treatment. Braces, including the Six Month Smile system, can correct misalignment and improve both the health and appearance of your smile.

Advantages of Six Month Smiles Over Other Treatments

Why consider Six Month Smiles? Orthodontic treatment with Six Month Smiles holds a number of advantages over traditional braces. The benefits of Six Month Smiles includes:

  • Average treatment lasts for only six months, instead of two years
  • Lucid-Lok clear brackets and nearly invisible Chameleon tooth-colored wires, instead of conspicuous metal brackets and wires
  • Patient Tray Kits mean shorter, more comfortable adjustment appointments
  • No bands or springs are required
  • Forces that straighten teeth are low, increasing comfort and safety
  • Normally less expensive than traditional braces, aligner trays, or veneers
