Interested in straightening your smile?
Six Month Smiles is a revolutionary braces system that is barely visible but provides precise results. Six Month Smiles is an ideal solution for aligning crooked teeth for teens and adults. You can expect quick, discreet, and effective results. In as little as 6 months you can enjoy a healthier, straighter, more beautiful smile.
Six Month Smiles focuses on the teeth in the “smile-zone”. Brackets and wires are tooth-colored so that they blend in and are less noticeable than metal braces. Once the braces are on, most patients only wear the system for about 6 months and finish treatment with a naturally straighter smile.
Dr. Pamela Cain provides cosmetic dentistry in Knoxville, TN, and may recommend Six Month Smiles as part of a smile makeover, to address crooked teeth, or to realign the bite and improve your overall dental health. She is an experienced restorative dentist with advanced training in the treatment of complex bite problems and orofacial pain.
Dr. Cain will take a comprehensive approach to your orthodontic needs and aesthetic goals when designing a personalized treatment plan.
Using T-scan technology, Dr. Cain will evaluate the function of the jaw joints and how the teeth make contact. If malocclusion is preventing the teeth from making proper contact, this often leads to discomfort, dental problems, and tooth damage.
Your treatment with Six Month Smiles will be designed to realign the bite if necessary to ensure that your new smile not only looks great but is comfortable and supports your long term dental health.
See How Six Month Smiles Works
The process of placing your Six Month Smiles clear braces begins with a consultation and treatment planning. The overall goal of treatment is to meet your cosmetic needs and to improve the health of your bite. Dr. Cain focuses on your overall oral health when working with you to address aesthetic concerns so that you can enjoy a stable result.
Dental impressions will be taken for creating your unique clear braces and used in CAD/CAM planning of your treatment. Once your orthodontic appliances are ready, Dr. Cain will attach the brackets and wires in our office and schedule checkups with you to monitor progress.
Once your smile is ready and the braces are removed, we will want to see you every six months to ensure that your teeth are remaining in position. We encourage all patients to wear a retainer nightly to avoid relapse.
When your Six Month Smiles treatment is complete, we will provide a complimentary tooth whitening treatment to complete your smile makeover.
Treating Dark Triangles after Orthodontics
Many patients who have their teeth repositioned and straightened with braces will notice the appearance of dark black triangles between teeth after treatment. The movement and rotation of teeth during orthodontic treatment will improve the health and stability of the bite, but can sometimes change the appearance of your smile.
Dr. Cain offers a modern alternative to tooth bonding for closing these dark triangles using Bioclear. A color-matched composite material, Bioclear will also improve the stability and long-term health of treated teeth because it builds up the surface where spaces are being closed. The results are flawless, creating a beautiful, more symmetrical smile.
