What Cosmetic Braces can Philadelphia area patients use to improve the alignment of their smiles?

Patients who have been hiding their teeth when they smile, laugh, or speak to others may be doing so because of the appearance of their teeth. When misalignment and crooked teeth become a source of embarrassment, it is important for Philadelphia area patients to consider corrective services such as orthodontics. However, the concept of covering up the smile with metal brackets and wires for months—sometimes years—can be a turn off to both teenagers and adults. This is why Dr. David Spilkia of David Spilkia Family and Cosmetic Dentistry provides his patients with an alternative method of straightening the smile.
Six Month Smiles are cosmetic braces that use brackets and wires in the same way as traditional orthodontics do. Instead, these brackets and wires are tooth colored for a more discreet treatment. Additionally, Six Month Smiles works in a much shorter period, allowing patients to rejuvenate their smiles quickly and easily.
Patients who might be self-conscious regarding their smile during treatment may be best suited for Six Month Smiles. The best candidates are those who are dealing with overcrowding, misalignment, or crooked teeth near the front of the mouth. Six Month Smiles does not work on realigning bites or severe cases of misalignment, so patients must be a qualifying candidate for this treatment. This can be determined during an initial consultation appointment and examination with Dr. David Spilkia who can determine if Six Month Smiles would be beneficial.
At David Spilkia Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we encourage our patients to learn more about cosmetic braces such as Six Month Smiles. Our practice also offers Invisalign as an alternative for more complex cases. Invisalign is another discreet orthodontic service that uses clear aligner trays instead of brackets and wires to realign the teeth, and some patients may want to learn about the two and compare the treatments to make the best decision. Contact our practice today to schedule a consultation visit and learn more about Six Month Smiles, Invisalign, and other dental solutions available to patients of all ages!

I’ve been going here for years and I’ve never had a problem. He also did my anterior crown and I’m in hygiene school and many of my peers can’t even tell it’s a crown. Dr. Spilkia is a wonderful dentist and I would not go anywhere else!
