The Fast Track to a Straighter Smile
When you think of a "classic" smile, straight teeth are a fundamental characteristic. If misaligned or spaced teeth are keeping a "classic" smile out of your reach, Six Month Smiles®, available at our Chattanooga practice, can give you a straight, dazzling smile faster than ever before. Unlike Invisalign® or traditional orthodontics, Six-month Smiles® is a purely cosmetic treatment. It uses clear, minimalist orthodontic appliances to gently guide some of your teeth into a symmetrical, healthy-looking alignment. Best of all, as the name implies, you can expect to achieve a beautiful smile in as little as six months! If you have suffered feelings of self-consciousness because of a slightly misaligned smile, Dr. Damien Armstrong can help you begin a new chapter of your life full of happy, confident smiles.

How Six Month Smiles® Works
This revolutionary treatment uses advanced dentistry techniques and technology to straighten the teeth that show when you smile. A set of clear braces are placed on the teeth, applying very low force to gently guide those teeth into a straighter position that achieves symmetry and an overall aesthetic enhancement. Meanwhile, your braces are hardly noticeable to those around you. In fact, if anything about your treatment is apparent to co-workers and others in your day-to-day life, it's the rapid progress you make towards a more attractive smile.
Each month, you will return to our offices for a checkup and possible wire change. At the end of your treatment, you will be given a special retainer to wear. This will maintain the new position of your teeth and the enhanced appearance of your smile. If you do not wish to wear a retainer, we can provide a bonded retainer that, like the Six Month Smiles® appliance, is very discreet and virtually invisible to others.
Orthodontic Overview and Six Month Smiles ( Explaining specifically for SixMonthSmiles brackets are clear and wires are tooth colored)
Almost all adults who are dissatisfied with their smiles because of cosmetic misalignment issues can be excellent candidates for Six Month Smiles®. If you are 15 years of age or older, and you do not require a major alteration in your bite, Six Month Smiles® could be precisely the treatment for you. This treatment represents a sort of "middle ground" between porcelain veneers and Invisalign®. Porcelain veneers are an excellent solution for patients who have one or two teeth with inconsistent shaping, small chips or cracks, or slight misalignment. Meanwhile, Invisalign® is designed to tackle the more serious alignment issues traditionally treated with conventional metal orthodontics. If your needs are purely cosmetic, but cannot be met with one or two porcelain veneers, Six Month Smiles® could be the best choice for you.
