Boost Your Smile With Short-Term Orthodontics

full-mouth_reconstruction_1 | Dr. Jennifer Perkins, DDS

Seeing your smile makes you happy.

At least … it does ever since you complete your orthodontic treatment at the office of Jennifer Perkins, DDS.

If you hadn’t done it, you might not have believed you could fix your smile in such a short time. Yet, that’s exactly what you did with Six Month Smiles. This short-term orthodontic option gave your smile a real boost …

This could be you in about six months if you begin your treatment soon. Call 256-801-0002 today to learn about this treatment at our Huntsville, AL office.

How To Make A Change

We want to be clear. Six Month Smiles is primarily a cosmetic treatment, although it’s rooted in orthodontic care.

As with traditional braces, you will need to wear brackets at wires on your teeth. Six Month Smiles uses brackets that are less noticeable, so they are somewhat more discreet than metal braces.

The biggest difference in the time it takes to finish the job.

Traditional braces can take years, while this treatment takes about six months. This can vary by a few months depending on the specific issues you want to correct and the severity of those issues.

So, how is this possible?

There isn’t anything magical about Six Month Smiles. The difference primarily comes down to a matter of focus.

Standard braces are used to move all your teeth. This includes the ones in the back of your mouth. There are reasons to do this, but they aren’t relevant to today’s post. This does add to the time it takes to complete that treatment, however.

With Six Month Smiles, the focus is on improving the appearance of your smile. To that end, this treatment moves only the teeth that people are likely to see. These are the teeth in the front of your mouth. Since you will only be moving a few teeth and those teeth are usually smaller than the ones in the back of your mouth, they are easier to move into straight positions.

What You Can Change

While this is primarily a cosmetic treatment, you should know that it can do a lot to improve the appearance of your teeth. You can:

  • Correct crooked teeth
  • Close gaps between teeth
  • Reduce crowding
  • Fix overbites and other bite issues

Six Month Smiles also is less costly than traditional braces. This system also has a proven track record of providing good results.

If you do choose this options, we welcome you to look into additional cosmetic services as well. After you complete your orthodontic care, professional teeth whitening can make your teeth look even nicer. Tooth bonding can be used to repair chipped or broken teeth, so your teeth are straight and whole.
