Invisalign® Clear Braces and Six Month Smiles

Many adults are unhappy with the appearance of their crooked teeth, but they live with the problem because they think their only option is years of wearing metal and wire braces. At Woodin Creek Dental, we offer Six Month Smiles clear braces, a great orthodontic treatment that works quickly and doesn’t mar your smile like traditional braces.

Six Month Smiles clear braces correct misaligned teeth quickly and safely by using the most up-to-date dental technology available. Results can be achieved in such a short amount of time for two reasons – their unique, patented design, and the primary goal of correcting the alignment of only the teeth that are visible when you smile.

Six Month Smiles At Woodin Creek Dental

Many people choose Six Month Smiles because of their advantage over traditional braces, including:

  • Clear brackets and tooth-colored wires that are very discreet
  • Treatment time averaging about six months
  • Consistent, predictable results
  • Affordability compared to traditional braces

Six Month braces are effective option for many people, but they may be the best choice for you. We would love to talk to you about Six Month Braces as well as your other cosmetic options. Please contact our Woodinville dental office, and we will be pleased to arrange a consultation.

Six Month Smiles braces are an innovative approach to orthodontic treatment offered at our Woodin Creek Dental office. With Six Month Smiles, we combine the best aspects of traditional braces with modified treatment and materials. The result is a straightforward cosmetic solution that fits your lifestyle

It may seem impossible, but the average treatment time for Six Month Smiles is really only about six months! The Six Month Smiles system is aesthetically pleasing because it uses clear brackets and wires that are tooth-colored, making them more discreet than traditional braces.

Six Month Smiles At Woodin Creek Dental

Six Month Smiles utilizes traditional steel wires and braces to reposition the teeth. Treatment time is an average of six months. Treatment is completed faster because Six Month Braces are meant to straighten only the teeth in the cosmetic zone (the teeth people can see when you smile). They are not meant to correct moderate to severe bite discrepancies in your bite, as conventional braces do

Most adults do not need any bite adjustment, making Six Month Smiles the perfect choice for effective, short-term orthodontic treatment.

Invisalign® uses a sequence of clear plastic aligners (look like retainers) that are designed to gradually move your teeth into proper alignment. Invisalign® aligners have the advantage of being removable and almost invisible. As a result, you can eat normally and brush and floss more effectively than with traditional braces. Invisalign® aligners are comfortable and easily tolerated by most wearers. 

Contact Woodin Creek Dental

If you think Invisalign would be a good choice for you, don't hesitate to call Woodin Creek Dental. We are excited to answer any and all questions you may have and don't forget to schedule your next dental appointment with us.

At a minimum, 22 hours per day. If you can wear them longer, that’s even better. Due to their removable nature, it is easier to maintain good oral hygiene with-Invisalign vs. traditional wire braces.

Can You Remove The Invisalign Retainer?

If you’re an athlete, you can remove the Invisalign retainer so that you can wear a sports mouthguard during play. It’s great to have this freedom, but you have to remember that the more you wear your aligners, the sooner you will see the beautiful results.

Cosmetic dentistry includes any treatment that corrects aesthetic imperfections in your smile. We have so many options available today, that there is virtually no problem we can’t correct.

Teeth Whitening at Woodin Creek Dental

Teeth whitening is considered to be cosmetic dentistry because it can transform the appearance of your smile. It is a quick and easy procedure that produces dramatic results that greatly enhance the appearance of your smile.

Porcelain Veneers at Woodin Creek Dental

Porcelain veneers are another example of a very effective cosmetic treatment. Veneers look natural and can be used to address a wide variety of dental flaws. These include problems like chipped or broken teeth, teeth with uneven spaces, and even severely discolored teeth that don’t respond to whitening.

Six Month Smiles at Woodin Creek Dental

Invisalign and Six Month Smiles clear braces are two short-term orthodontic treatments that can quickly and effectively correct misaligned teeth. The bonus is that straightening your teeth also has oral health benefits.

Dental restorations like crowns are most often used to protect and strengthen a damaged tooth. But we can also use crowns to alter the shape of a tooth or cover an old filling, so in this way they can also be considered cosmetic.

As you can see, cosmetic dentistry offers us lots of options for correcting a number of imperfections. Please contact our Woodinville dental office to learn more about how these treatments can benefit you.

Our office uses both Invisalign® clear braces and Six Month braces to correct moderately misaligned teeth. Each treatment has its own advantages, but they are both excellent options for correcting the appearance of crooked teeth in a relatively short amount of time.

Invisalign® uses a series of clear plastic aligners that are calibrated to gently reposition your teeth and gradually move them into proper alignment. Invisalign® aligners also have the advantage of being completely removable and almost invisible. This allows you to eat normally and brush and floss more effectively than with traditional braces. Invisalign® aligners are also very comfortable and cause little irritation for the wearer.

Six Month Smiles At Woodin Creek Dental

Six Month Smiles are very effective as a solution for correcting misaligned teeth and can provide desired results in an average time of six months. Treatment times are shorter with Six Month braces because they are designed to straighten only the teeth that are visible when you smile; they are not meant to correct your dental bite as traditional braces do.

Call Our Woodinville, WA Dental Office

Depending on the extent of misalignment and the correction needed, we can easily perfect the appearance of your smile in as little as six months. If you think Six Month Smiles is the right cosmetic dentistry choice for you, give Woodin Creek Dental a phone call today!

Yes. Almost all orthodontic treatment, short term or long term, will require the need for retainers. Our teeth are always moving, even if we don’t feel it.

Why Do I Need To Wear My Retainer?

Even after orthodontic treatment in Woodinville, WA, your teeth will have a tendency to want to move back to where they were before. Retainers hold your teeth in place, helping them to stay in proper alignment. Without a retainer, all the time and money you spent on orthodontics will have been wasted!
