If you're unhappy with the alignment of your teeth, but you don't want to consider the time-consuming and expensive option of traditional braces, you may be interested in hearing about our 6 month smiles. At The Gentle Dentist, we understand that wearing braces can cause you to feel self-conscious, what with the brackets and criss-crossing metal that makes itself very obvious whenever you smile, talk, laugh, or eat. And while newer options like Invisalign eliminate that problem, all braces carry with them a hefty price tag and a time commitment that can run as much as two to three years. If your teeth alignment issues are not severe, however, our Franklin Square orthodontist might be able to help you with a solution that is more reasonably priced and much quicker.
You might have wondered about dental veneers as a way to address your teeth alignment. And while it is a good method that can be done fairly quickly, it has its own drawbacks to consider, including cost and the fact that you lose a certain amount of your teeth's surface in the process of preparing them for the fitting of veneers. This is why our Franklin Square orthodontist is excited to tell you about 6 month smiles. Using clear braces that are nearly invisible, you can have straighter teeth in just half a year, and at a cost that might be have of what you would expect standard braces or Invisalign to run you. It's the ideal solution for both adults and teens. You won't have to be concerned about social awkwardness, because your braces won't be obvious. And you can avoid the longterm commitment because it won't require all that much time to complete successfully.
If you're curious enough to find out more, call us and schedule a consultation with our Franklin Square orthodontist, who will determine if you're a good candidate for 6 month smiles. But when you consider the upside and the advantages that it has over braces, Invisalign, and veneers, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain by coming in. Just think, by this coming Spring, you can have the straight teeth that you've been hoping for.
