Encinitas Cosmetic Dentist Offering Six Month Smile Makeover


At her Encinitas cosmetic dentistry practice, Dr. Cathy Santone is announcing the recent addition of an innovative smile makeover system known as Six Month Smiles®. The cosmetic braces technology allows Dr. Santone to provide a quick, effective, and discrete smile makeover for her patients in as little as six months time.

Dr. Cathy Santone is a cosmetic dentist in San Diego, CA. She is announcing the recent adoption of new smile makeover technology. The clear braces are known as Six Month Smiles®, and allow Dr. Santone to straighten teeth quickly and effectively. More importantly however, she adds that the new technology does not require the preparation or grinding associated with porcelain veneers, and the procedure is not as costly as traditional bracing systems.

Six Month Smiles® uses clear braces and tooth colored wires to straighten a patient’s teeth. Dr. Santone says the clear bracing technology is revolutionary because of its ability to pull a patient’s teeth into a more desirable position with less force. While some patients can experience an even quicker smile makeover, achieving results in as little as four months, Dr. Santone says the average treatment time is six to nine months. “Six Month Smiles® offers patients a discrete, highly effective, and more affordable alternative to comprehensive two-year adult bracing system.”

While many patients are familiar with another discrete method of straightening teeth known as Invisalign®, Dr. Santone says there are several keys advantages with Six Month Smiles®. One benefit of the Invisalign® system is the ability to take the trays out when a patient is eating, brushing or flossing. However, Dr. Santone says treatment can be extended by two weeks if the plastic trays are not worn for a day. Another distinct advantage of Six Month Smiles® is the ability to straighten extremely crowded or crooked teeth, which is often difficult to achieve with the Invisalign® technology.

Ultimately, Dr. Santone says she believes this new technology is a viable treatment alternative to more traditional methods of the smile makeover. “I am very excited about Six Month Smiles® because it offers amazing cosmetic and teeth health benefits for so many patients.”
