Philadelphia area Dentist explains Six Month Smiles Orthodontics

Most patients who want to straighten teeth are turned off by the idea of having traditional braces covering their smile. The use of metal brackets and wires for months, sometimes years, to realign the teeth can cause many patients to decide against improving their smile. However, there are alternative solutions available for those who are uneasy about the concept of traditional orthodontics. Dr. Spilkia of David Spilkia Family and Cosmetic Dentistry is excited to offer two methods of realigning the smile, including Invisalign and Six Month Smiles.
Invisalign uses clear aligner trays, but Six Month Smiles takes a different approach. Six Month Smiles uses brackets and wires, but they are clear or tooth-colored to reduce their visibility. This method of orthodontic treatment is only used for mild to moderate misalignment of the teeth near the front of the mouth—the teeth that are seen when patients smile, laugh, and talk to others. Patients with moderate misalignment or those who need to realign their bite may be better suited for alternative solutions such as Invisalign.
Six Month Smiles focuses on the visible teeth. This treatment can be used to realign the anterior teeth in approximately six months, making a dramatic change to anyone’s smile. The wires are self-ligating and move teeth into their proper positions with little to no discomfort.
If you are interested in learning more about alterative solutions for straightening the smile, the team at David Spilkia Family and Cosmetic Dentistry is here to help you choose another way to tackle that unattractive smile without the embarrassment of traditional orthodontia. Contact our practice today to schedule an examination and consultation visit to find out if you are an appropriate candidate for Six Month Smiles. We can help new and existing patients find viable ways to improve their smile without having to go through conventional methods such as metal bracket and wire braces to enjoy a more beautiful smile. With Six Month Smiles and our other solution, Invisalign, we can provide patients with a few different avenues to consider when deciding on a way to realign the smile.

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!
