San Jose area dentist describes how Six Month Smiles works

The team is committed to providing comprehensive dental care for individuals who want to improve the health and wellness of their smiles. Using today’s amazing technology and advanced techniques, patients enjoy affordable and effective solutions for the teeth.
When malocclusion is a concern, braces are often the solution. However, traditional orthodontia often takes years to improve alignment. With solutions such as Six Month Smiles, patients can achieve results faster than ever.
Six Month Smiles is a method of treatment that uses brackets and wires to achieve similar results as conventional braces but in a much shorter period of time. This is because treatment focuses on the teeth near the front of the mouth and aligns the “social six.” These anterior teeth are most noticeable when patients speak, smile, and laugh. By addressing the alignment of these teeth, patients can enhance their smiles considerably.
Treatment is relatively short for most patients with most lasting approximately six months. Some patients see improvement rather quickly due to fast but gentle forces. More involved cases may need up to nine months, but how much time may be needed to achieve desired results can be discussed during the consultation appointment.
Six Month Smiles is very affordable. It is less than traditional braces because it focuses on specific teeth and not the bite alignment. Patients seeking bite alignment may be better suited for another treatment available at StarBrite Dental called Invisalign, which uses clear aligners to achieve results instead of brackets and wires.
Dr. Munira Lokhandwala and her team work closely with patients to determine if procedures such as Six Month Smiles can help enhance the appearance of their smiles quickly and easily.
