Local dentist answers questions about Six Month Smiles

Six Month Smiles Dentist at David Spilkia Family and Cosmetic Dentistry

At our Philadelphia practice, we see many patients who wonder if Six Month Smilesis a legitimate straightening treatment. Can it give quality results in such a short amount of time? Dentist, Dr. David Spilkia, answers with a resounding, “Yes!” Six Month Smiles is a revolutionary alternative to traditional braces.
 
Many patients who have avoided traditional orthodontia are opting for Six Month Smiles. Treatment utilizes clear brackets and specially designed tooth-colored wires. It focuses on teeth that are visible, to achieve a straighter, more aesthetically pleasing smile.
 
Are you curious about Six Month Smiles? Here are answers to some of the most common questions we receive about this treatment.

What does Six Month Smiles fix?

Six Month Smiles can address many of the most common orthodontic issues such as crooked teeth, crowding, or over-spacing.

Why would I choose Six Month Smiles instead of aligner methods like Invisalign?

Both methods of straightening have advantages. Invisalign, which is also available in our office, concentrates on improving alignment and bite of the entire arch of teeth. Success is based heavily on compliance. Patients must wear the trays the designated amount of time. If cosmetic straightening is more important to you, a fixed option like Six Month Smiles works great.

Does it really work in Six months?

Most people experience complete cosmetic straightening within three to nine months. The system is named after the average treatment time, which is six months.
 
If you have wished your teeth were straighter, but weren’t ready to commit to traditional braces, Six Month Smiles may be the solution for you. At David Spilkia Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, our team is committed to helping patients enjoy beautiful, healthy smiles.
