Benefits of a smile makeover from your dentist in Chicago


For many adults suffering from orthodontic issues, their hectic schedules make it impossible to set aside the time necessary for braces, which consist of two years of visiting the dentist every few weeks. Many find this to be a scheduling nightmare. If this describes you, Six Month Smiles® could be the solution you are looking for.

Six Month Smiles® overview

This treatment uses wires and brackets that are permanently attached to the teeth. Unlike standard metal braces, Six Month Smiles® uses brackets that are clear and wires that are tooth colored so they are much more discreet than other bracket and wire systems.

Patients find this system to be more convenient because of the shorter time frame required to complete the treatment. Additionally, the use of less force when moving the teeth reduces both potential pain and root damage, although some discomfort is to be expected with any orthodontic treatment.

Patients will need to see Peter W. Fry DDS about once a month to have their braces adjusted. The appointments normally take about 15 minutes.

Who is a good candidate?

Six Month Smiles® can be used on a number of orthodontic issues. These include rotated teeth, intrusion, and extrusion, to name a few. It is most effective on problems that have a negative impact on the aesthetics of the smile. Issues affecting the teeth at the front of the mouth, for example those that are crowded or have excessive space between them, benefit the most from the use of Six Month Smiles®.

Many patients feel that Six Month Smiles® is the perfect starting point when considering a smile makeover. This is especially true for patients who are thinking about getting veneers to cover orthodontic issues in their teeth. While they are a great option for teeth that are stained or chipped, they are not a substitute for orthodontic problems, all they do is hide the issue, not correct it as Six Month Smiles® does.

Each appointment only takes about 15 minutes, you only have to see the dentist once a month, and the entire treatment process takes about six months to complete. When you think about this and the availability of weekday and Saturday appointments, it is easy for Chicago residents to make time for their new smile.
