The Six Month Smile

The Six Month Smile is a modern cosmetic treatment used by the Manhattan Beach, CA Cosmetic Dentist that is tailored to adults who have put off treatment because they don’t want unsightly metal braces. The Six Month Smile uses tooth-colored (white) brackets and wires and they’re barely visible.

The Six Month Smile also allows your dentist to provide teeth straightening without the usual treatment period required with traditional braces. The Six Month Smile treatment emphasizes straightening teeth that are visible when you smile. For this reason, it is considered more of a cosmetic dentistry treatment than a procedure that seeks to correct bite. Some of the advantages of choosing The Six Month Smile are:

  • Fast treatment times
  • Nearly invisible treatment
  • Minimal pain and discomfort during treatment
  • A cost-effective solution
  • A great final result

How Does Six Month Smiles Work?

Many patients believe that the Six Month Smile system is a six-month orthodontic treatment. However, the system does not employ aggressive tightening to shift the location of your teeth. The primary focus of the system is to shift teeth that are visible when you smile. The braces use gentle force to move your teeth comfortably, using standard orthodontic mechanics. But the emphasis is on the cosmetic appearance of your teeth rather than the position of your bite. Dr. Firshein is trained in using the Six Month Smiles system and can help patients wishing to correct:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Unevenly spaced teeth
  • Asymmetrical smiles (left and right sides not identical)
  • Uneven gum lines

Is Six Month Smiles for me?

Do you long for a healthy, beautiful smile? Do you have a wedding, vacation, or some other event coming up, and you wish you could make your smile just a little more appealing? The only way to be sure if the Six Month Smile system is correct for you is by consulting with your Manhattan Beach Cosmetic Dentist, a Six Month Smile dentist. Generally, most adults are candidates for this procedure and benefit from the aesthetic correction the braces provide.
