Aligning teeth near the front of the smile is often brought up by patients who are interested in seeking orthodontic treatment. Dr. Stanley Levenson of Shrewsbury area's Levenson Smile can provide a wide range of solutions for addressing problems such as malocclusion of the dental arch and/or the bite. Instead of undergoing traditional orthodontics, which requires the placement of metal brackets and wires over the teeth (which can be embarrassing and have a negative effect on one's smile throughout treatment), patients may be able to consider alternatives such as Invisalign or Six Month Smiles—both orthodontic services available through Levenson Smile.
Six Month Smiles is a method that uses brackets and wires, but they are tooth-colored. This allows them to be much more discreet than conventional braces and provides patients with a more aesthetic treatment overall. Additionally, thanks to the special Lucid-Lok technique, patients can enjoy much shorter treatment times. Most patients who undergo Six Month Smiles will enjoy the results in less than a year.
Six Month Smile realigns the smile and patients are then encouraged to maintain the results by wearing a customized retainer. All orthodontic treatments must finish with the use of a retainer, which is an acrylic and metal apparatus that snaps into the dental arch and is worn overnight to maintain the new alignment. These may be worn for many years to keep the new smile looking its best.
Many patients prefer Six Month Smiles treatment over other methods of orthodontics because of the speed in which they can obtain their new smile. The process starts with an evaluation during which Dr. Levenson will determine if patients can benefit more from this or another orthodontic service. Patients can enjoy fast, easy appointments to evaluate progress and can enjoy the benefits Six Month Smiles has to offer.
