Teens get orthodontics because that’s around when their teeth have stopped moving. However, teeth actually never stop moving entirely. That’s why adults can find themselves with crooked teeth or gaps between them.
By calling our Las Cruces, NM dental office today at (575) 635-4008, you can schedule an appointment for orthodontic treatment that’s not just going to straighten your teeth â€” it will do so discreetly and quickly. That treatment is Six Month Smiles.
What Is Six Month Smiles?
Orthodontic treatments gently reposition your teeth, moving them to where they should be. Traditional braces still work, which is why many teens still get them. However, that can be a problem when adults need orthodontics. Because so many teenagers get traditional braces, adults with them on their teeth can look odd.
There are other problems with metal braces, including:
- Metal looks out of place in your smile.
- You have to make many dental visits.
- It can take up to three years before your teeth are in the right place.
- You end up straightening teeth that people never see.
By calling Bright Star Dental today, you can start getting your teeth straightened and aligned using Six Month Smiles. Dr. Gilbert is accredited by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) and is the only dentist in the Las Cruces/El Paso area with that accreditation. That means Dr. Gilbert really knows how to use orthodontics to make your smile look amazing.
Why Adults Need Six Month Smiles
Here are several specific reasons why the orthodontic treatment of Six Month Smiles is a great idea for adults.
Six Month Smiles Are More Affordable
With any orthodontic treatment, you need to visit our Las Cruces, NM dental office every so often. That’s so Dr. Gilbert can make sure your teeth are moving correctly. He’ll also need to adjust your braces every so often to keep them working properly. Because traditional braces take up to three years, that means paying for three years’ worth of those visits.
By calling Bright Star Dental today at (575) 635-4008, you can get Six Month Smiles that do not require anywhere near the same number of visits. That means you’ll end up paying less, making Six Month Smiles more affordable.
Six Month Smiles Are Much Harder To Notice
One of the biggest downsides to wearing traditional braces as an adult is the metal. The brackets and wires used by braces are clearly obvious. And because they’re associated with teens, adults can look immature or weird with them on.
That’s why you need to call our Las Cruces, NM dental office today. Six Month Smiles uses clear brackets and tooth-colored wires. With these on your teeth, people will have a harder time noticing that you’re getting orthodontics done.
Six Month Smiles Are Done Around Six Months Later
Traditional braces focus on moving all of your teeth, even the ones in the back that no one ever sees. That’s part of why they can take up to three years before your teeth are finally in the right position.
Six Month Smiles really is often done in six months. That’s because this short-term orthodontic treatment only moves the teeth that people will see. And when you’re done in six months, that saves you a lot of time, energy, and money.
Six Month Smiles Can Restore Your Confidence
When you have crooked, misaligned teeth, you know your smile doesn’t look right. That can make you feel less confident about smiling and making first impressions. It’s like wearing a shirt you know has a stain on it. Even though no one would be rude enough to say anything about it, you feel self-conscious.
That’s where Six Month Smiles can help. It will gently reposition the teeth people see so your smile looks even and aligned again. And by knowing your smile looks so good, your confidence can be restored.
Call us today at (575) 635-4008 to schedule your first appointment for Six Month Smiles. Dr. Gilbert has helped many people finally have straight, aligned smiles with this short-term orthodontic treatment, giving him the experience to match his training. Finally, you can avoid metal braces and still have a great smile.
