BUTTE, MT --(Marketwired - January 29, 2016) - Forget about spending two years in braces. Butte Family Dental, a leading cosmetic dental office, recently began offering an orthodontic treatment that straightens teeth in six months or less.
The procedure, known as Six Month Smiles, focuses on correcting the teeth that are misaligned or crooked instead of requiring the patient to spend two or more years wearing braces.
"This new service is great for adult patients who would otherwise not go through with orthodontic treatment," said Dr. Tara Gilbreath of Butte Family Dental. "Six Month Smiles is the perfect treatment for patients who have a few crooked teeth in the front of their mouth."
Dr. Gilbreath recently completed continuing education classes for Six Month Smiles. Six Month Smiles can be used to correct alignment issues, gaps and crooked teeth.
Six Month Smiles is less expensive than conventional braces and requires fewer office visits. Butte Family Dental uses clear brackets and tooth-colored wires to make the treatment discreet. Dr. Gilbreath said Six Month Smiles is ideal for adult patients who have had braces in the past but saw their teeth shift or adults with only minor alignment problems.
"Most adults don't like the idea of being stuck wearing braces for years, so we're happy to provide Six Month Smiles," Dr. Gilbreath said. "With the added convenience, we hope to encourage more adults in the community to straighten their teeth."
