A New Smile In Six Months, Seriously!

You’ve made it this far without braces, so why bother now? Even if your teen years are long gone, you are still a good candidate for orthodontic treatment. And the benefits are huge: increased confidence at work, better health, a more active social life, personal satisfaction, and so forth.

Does this sound familiar?: you really want to make a change, but you don’t look forward to the 2-3 years of unwanted attention and unforeseen hassles that regular braces would entail.

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!

Unlike 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.

A Consultation Can Help!

Our number one goal is to make every visit a positive and pleasant experience. When you come in for your orthodontic consultation, Dr. Whatley will listen carefully to your goals, preferences and concerns so we can come up with the best solution to the problem at hand. Whether that seems to be Six Month Smiles or not, we will make sure that you know the pros and cons of each option so you can make informed decisions about your oral health.

Why Not Be Like Kathy?

Here’s what a recent patient named Kathy told us: “I used to cover my mouth with my hand, I didn’t smile a lot…because of my teeth. After I went to see Dr. Whatley and since I had my procedure done, I smile all the time; and a lot of the time people can’t tell that I’ve had work done because it looks so natural.” Wouldn’t you like to tell a similar tale?

If you are ready to take the next step towards the better-looking smile you deserve, we’ll make it easy to get started. All you have to do is contact us online to learn more about what short-term orthodontics can do for you at Alabama Family Dental of Mobile, AL!
