FAQs On Six Month Smiles

Affordable orthodontist near me in the Arden area who offers Six Month Smiles

Patients find that in order to address misaligned teeth, they may need to work with an orthodontist. If you have been searching for a dentist or orthodontist "near me" in the Arden area who offers affordable treatment and an alternative to traditional braces, Dr. Christopher Port and his team at the Asheville Smile Center can assist.

At the Asheville Smile Center, we encourage patients to take the time to learn about alternative solutions to conventional metal bracket and wire braces. Many patients, young and old, find metal bracket and wire braces to be unattractive and hide their smile. They may also feel embarrassed by the brackets and wires covering their teeth. Dr. Christopher Port discusses with many patients the options available for treatment which may include that of Six Month Smiles.

Six Month Smiles is a way to achieve a straighter dental arch but with tooth-colored wires and brackets which are far less noticeable than the alternative option. Patients have more confidence while undergoing treatment, and will be able to achieve a beautiful smile in approximately six months—instead of several years.

Dr. Christopher Port encourages patients to book an appointment at the Asheville Smile Center to determine if they are appropriate candidates for this particular method of realignment. Patients should have mild malocclusion of the teeth near the front of the smile in order to be eligible. Six Month Smiles is not intended to address poor bite alignment or the entire arch of the teeth—just the "social six" in the front of the smile. These are the teeth that are most noticeable when patients speak, laugh, and smile. They are also the simplest to reposition with treatments such as Six Month Smiles.

Interested in finding out more about Six Month Smiles? Want to achieve a more attractive look without years of orthodontic treatment? Contact the team of the Asheville Smile Center today to book a consultation visit with Dr. Christopher Port and his team of professionals. We can help you decide if this is a viable treatment option, or if you may benefit from other treatments such as conventional braces or even porcelain veneers.
