Six Month Smiles® Seattle
Do you sometimes feel self-conscious about your smile? Maybe there are gaps, crooked teeth, or misaligned teeth? For many people, these problems with their teeth cause them to feel awkward in social situations, or even to avoid smiling and laughing in front of others.
Fortunately, it’s possible to change the alignment of your teeth and create a smile that you feel more comfortable with. Most people associate straightening teeth with metal braces, but technology has come a long way in recent years. Dr. Caggiano offers Six Month Smiles® in Seattle. This is a faster, more reliable alternative that can get you a better smile in just six months.
Six Month Smiles® is a cosmetic orthodontic system that can straighten your front teeth in as few as six months. Because this treatment option gradually straightens only the teeth that are visible when you smile, it can typically be completed much faster than traditional orthodontics or systems like Invisalign®. This discreet straightening option is great for patients with minor misalignment who do not want to commit to a year or more of traditional orthodontic treatment.
What is Six Month Smiles®?
Six Month Smiles® involves using braces to straighten teeth, but they’re completely unlike traditional metal braces. This unique system uses clear brackets and tooth-colored wires, so the braces are nearly invisible. During your treatment with Six Month Smiles® in Seattle, many people won’t even notice that you have the braces.
The focus of Six Month Smiles® treatment is on the appearance of the teeth. This treatment is intended for those who want a cosmetic benefit for a beautiful smile, not for those who have problems with their bite due to misaligned teeth. The treatment focuses on the front teeth that are seen when you smile, which allows the treatment to be quicker and gets you the smile you’re looking for.
If you have small chips in those front teeth, or teeth that are a little too small for the rest of your smile, dental bonding may also help to get the appearance you want. This is a quick procedure that can be done in one appointment after you’re finished with Six Month Smiles®, to perfect that smile.
Do I have to visit an orthodontist to get Six Month Smiles® in Seattle?
The reason that orthodontists usually place braces is because aligning the bite properly is a complex process, and orthodontists have extra training that helps them to get the right alignment. With Six Month Smiles®, however, the precise alignment of the bite is not the goal; the goal is to make the smile look beautiful. This can be achieved by a general dentist with specialized training in the Six Month Smiles® method. If you want Six Month Smiles® in Seattle, then you need to find one of the few dentists in Seattle trained in this method.
