Have You Considered Six Month Smiles?


Welcome to the online home of our Mobile, AL dentist’s office. If you have a less than perfect smile, there are two things you need to know: you are in good company AND Dr. Whatley can help. Around here, we make it easier than ever for adult patients to straighten out crooked, crowded, and gapped teeth with a short-term orthodontic solution called Six Month Smiles. Read on to hear more about it, and then be sure to follow up with our team to schedule your consultation at Alabama Family Dental.

Six Months Is All It Takes

Here’s something a lot of people ponder: if you’ve made it well beyond your teen years without braces, why would you bother now? Well, no matter how old you are, you can still be plagued by annoying orthodontic issues that were never corrected at earlier stages of your life. And if that is the case, you ought to want to do something about it. Besides, there is no “statute of limitations” for orthodontic treatment. Plus, the benefits are huge: increased confidence at work, better health, a more active social life, personal satisfaction, and the like. Here’s something else we hear a lot: you really want to make a change, but you don’t look forward to the 2-3 years of hassles that regular braces would entail. Makes sense. In fact, if you can relate, that makes you the ideal candidate for Six Month Smiles!

Six Month Smiles combines the superior aesthetics of clear braces with the proven effectiveness of metal braces. Instead of a full metal appliance, Six Month Smiles feature nearly invisible Lucid-Lok® brackets and tooth-colored wires. The best part is that you don’t have to wear the braces for years—most patients see results in about six months on average!

As opposed to metal braces, the Six Month Smiles system targets certain teeth only—those that show when you smile. Low, gentle forces realign specific teeth, so you can see results faster. But you’ll need to come in and discuss your options, so that we can know for sure if this is the right course of action for you.
