Lincoln Park Cosmetic Dentist Explains The Basics Of Six Month Smiles Treatment

Written by Dr. Szurgot on Aug 23, 2016

Our Lincoln Park cosmetic dentists understand that many dental patients are trying to achieve aesthetic results in time for a particular event or special occasion. In our office we offer a truly innovative cosmetic treatment that is designed to straighten and perfect a patient’s smile in just six months.

Six Month Smiles uses tooth-colored brackets and discreet wires to move teeth quickly. This treatment is focused on perfecting the positions of teeth that are most visible. For this reason, Six Month Smiles is not a great choice for people who need to achieve significant structural dental changes, or for people who need to change their bite alignments.

However, Six Month Smiles is a great option for people who are interested in achieving cosmetic results in a very short period of time. Using Six Month Smiles our team can straighten crooked teeth, close gaps between teeth, widen the overall appearance of the smile, and reduce unattractive crowding.

The average treatment timeline for Six Month Smiles is just six to nine months. When you come in for a consultation, our dental team will be able to give you a better idea of how long your treatment, specifically, may take.

Often, dental patients combine Six Month Smiles treatment with other cosmetic solutions in order to achieve total smile transformations. For example, a patient may straighten his or her smile with Six Month Smiles, and then undergo dental whitening treatments at the end in order to brighten the teeth. Dental bonding can also be used in conjunction with Six Month Smiles; dental bonding can be used to correct cracks and chips, and to build up poorly proportioned teeth.
