Patients near Glendale ask, “Can you tell me about the best candidates for Six Month Smiles?”
Patients today have a multitude of options when it comes to perfecting their smiles. Smile makeovers may combine reconstructive and cosmetic treatments with easier and quicker ways to straighten teeth. At Biltmore Dental Center, serving Phoenix, Glendale, and surrounding neighborhoods, our focus is on helping our patients to achieve their healthiest and most beautiful smiles.
For many years, patients who desired straighter teeth for a more appealing smile had limited options. Having to commit to lengthy orthodontic treatment with visible wires and brackets deterred many adults who dreaded the perceived stigma of adolescent-associated braces.
Dr. Sameet Koppikar at Biltmore Dental Center understands that each patient’s needs and goals are as unique as their smiles. We offer several options for patients who want straighter teeth and treatment that meets their timeframe, lifestyle, and budget.
Six Month Smiles, as the name implies, is an innovative, short-term orthodontic treatment, lasting typically six months, which evolved from conventional braces. Using the same effective treatment principles, Six Month Smiles focuses solely on the front teeth, or the teeth that are visible in a smile. A purely cosmetic treatment, Six Month Smiles does not address underlying bite issues but rather helps patients to love their smiles.
Made of Lucid-Lok clear brackets and wires that match color of the teeth, Six Month Smiles is barely detectable. Using gentle force, patients can achieve their desired results quickly, effectively, and affordably.
Is Six Month Smiles right for me?
The best candidates for Six Month Smiles are adult patients (16 years old and up) who wish to enhance the appearance of their smiles with straighter front teeth without a lengthy commitment. Upon completion of treatment, patients should be willing to wear a retainer to maintain their beautiful results.
Dr. Koppikar and our friendly, professional team at Biltmore Dental Center also offer other options to achieve the appearance of straighter teeth, including Invisalign clear aligner trays, porcelain veneers, and traditional braces. Our advanced, state-of-the-art dental practice provides a complete range of dental care, including family and general, preventative, cosmetic, emergency, and sedation dentistry, in addition to alignment treatments.
