Six Month Smiles

Patient wearing adult braces in Chico CA

More adults than ever are choosing to get braces, often because they didn’t have the opportunity when they were children.

Adult Braces

While many adult patients want to improve their smile’s appearance with straighter teeth, they express dread and concern about the hassles commonly associated with traditional orthodontics.

Six Month Smiles in Chico, CA

Dr. Daniel Surh offers a solution that allows our adult patients to have a straighter, more beautiful smile in a short amount of time. Six Month Smiles uses nearly invisible bracket technology that moves teeth quickly and comfortably into a more aesthetic arrangement.

Because Six Month Smiles only focuses on the teeth that show when you smile, your treatment time is shorter. Most cases complete in an average of just six months. That makes Six Month Smiles faster than clear aligner systems like Invisalign. The reduced treatment time also helps keep costs lower.

Call South Chico Dental Care to Get Started with Clear Aligners

If you are an adult who is seeking to improve the appearance of your smile by straightening your teeth, please contact South Chico Dental Care at (530) 636-4943 to schedule an evaluation for clear aligners.

At South Chico Dental Care, we want to offer the best option for your orthodontic treatment needs. That’s why we feature Six Month Smiles, an innovative solution that is an alternative to conventional braces.

The treatment is affordable, predictable, and safe, with an average treatment time of six months. However, to accomplish so much in so little time, Six Month Smiles has some significant variations compared to regular braces.

Six Month Smiles Targets Your Front Teeth

Our orthodontic team may recommend Six Month Smiles in Chico to fix crowding, gaps, overlapping, and twisting in the most visible part of your smile: your front teeth. So while traditional braces can straighten your entire bite, Six Month Smiles targets particular teeth, making it so predictable.

Another advantage of this orthodontic alternative is visibility. Instead of metal brackets cemented to your teeth, Six Month Smiles brackets are tooth-colored, making them less conspicuous.

Orthodontic Treatment with Six Month Smiles

Six Month Smiles uses clear brackets with wires to move your front teeth into appropriate positions. The treatment is affordable, predictable, and safe.

With an average treatment time of six months, Six Month Smiles takes considerably less time than other orthodontic treatments.

Other Advantages of Clear Braces in Chico, CA

  • Less expensive – Being limited to your front teeth, Six Month Smiles typically costs less.
  • More comfortable – No tightening is required as is with conventional braces.

We encourage you to call our dental clinic today to schedule a consultation.
