Achieve A Straighter Smile Quickly and Effectively with Six Month Smiles®
Many adults and teens can be self-conscious about their smile because of gaps, misalignment, and crowding. Orthodontic treatment can address cosmetic issues and can provide a needed boost in confidence. However, traditional metal braces are often very conspicuous and invasive, while other orthodontic alternatives are simply too expensive. To gradually shift your teeth into alignment, Dr. Chad LaCour and his team offer Six Month Smiles® at their Baton Rouge, LA, office. Dr. LaCour is happy to offer this innovative, patented treatment because of its affordability, safety, and effective results. Patients can undergo the treatment as a standalone procedure or incorporate it into a personally tailored smile makeover.
Six Month Smiles® Basics
Six Month Smiles® is a unique orthodontic method that can gently shift teeth into proper alignment. The patented Lucid-Lok® brackets are clear and are made of high-quality materials to ensure successful treatment. The system also uses Lucid-Lok® tooth-colored wires that blend with your smile for discreet effects. This method can also be more comfortable than traditional metal braces because of the lower forces applied to shift your teeth.
Once you have completed treatment, you will need to wear a retainer in order to maintain the new and improved position of your teeth. Dr. LaCour and his team can help you choose either a removable or bonded retainer based on your needs and goals. With Six Month Smiles®, you can expect a treatment timeline of about four to nine months, with six months being the average procedure length.
Your Candidacy for Treatment
Good candidates for Six Month Smiles® will be in good overall oral health. Any gum disease, decay, or damage must first be treated with effective restorative care. Once you have a solid foundation of oral health, you can undergo treatment to correct minor issues such as:
Your individual candidacy can only be determined during a consultation with Dr. LaCour. We will perform a complete oral exam, including x-rays and digital imaging to determine the best treatment for you. If you only need minor cosmetic treatment, we may recommend porcelain veneers as an alternative.
