Six Month Smiles

The smile can be a great source of joy, increasing our general sense of wellbeing. When teeth are not in proper position, the state of misalignment diminishes our natural urge to smile. Depending on the extent of spacing issues, it is possible that misalignment can even cause a person to feel less confident or even highly embarrassed about their appearance. At Hanford Family Dental Center, adults who would like to address the affect misalignment has on their smile may be able to do so with Six Month Smiles©.

The proven techniques of standard orthodontia have been harnessed to produce excellent results in a shortened period of time by the developers of Six Month Smiles©. On average, the smile can be significantly improved in four to nine months, making the average six, as the treatment name suggests. It may seem that an expedited treatment program may involve a greater intensity and, possibly, more discomfort. Six Month Smiles© is neither uncomfortable nor intense. The way this innovative orthodontic treatment works is by focusing repositioning efforts on the teeth that are most visible in the smile.

Six Month Smiles© is ideal for many patients who wish to improve their smile aesthetic. Because this form of treatment does not affect the way opposing teeth fit together, patient who want to address malocclusion, or a bad bite, may get the most benefit from conventional braces worn for twelve months or more.

Dr. Raiyani determines the appropriateness of Six Month Smiles© during a comprehensive oral examination and consultation. This system achieves the desired result in a way that is very discreet due to the inclusion of clear wires and brackets that blend right in with the color of enamel. Throughout the course of treatment, patients need not feel self conscious about "wearing braces." Many patients who choose Six Month Smiles© from our Hanford, California dental office complete their smile transformation without the obvious signs of dental work.

Six Month Smiles© is a great way to improve the look of the smile. Upon the completion of treatment, patients are advised to wear either a bonded or removable retainer. The daily use of a retainer is necessary to combat the pull of the periodontal ligament, which will urge teeth into their previous misalignment. Fortunately, retainers can be just as discreet, if not more so, than braces themselves if the bonded retainer is positioned on the back of teeth.

Six months goes by very quickly. Just imagine, in this short time frame having the smile you've always wanted. Contact Hanford Family Dental Center at 559-530-8080 for your smile-enhancing consultation.
