Dublin area patients ask how much Six Month Smiles braces cost
Many patients with minor malocclusion of the teeth near the front of the mouth (also known as the anterior teeth) are excited to learn that there are other ways to address this problem than with traditional metal bracket and wire braces. Dr. Munira Lokhandwala of Dublin’s StarBrite Dental encourages patients to learn about another treatment known as Six Month Smiles. Six Month Smiles is a variation of conventional braces, but instead of using metal wires, it uses tooth-colored wires and brackets for a discreet alternative. Six Month Smiles is also meant to reposition the teeth in the front of the mouth and not to address bite alignment or more severe cases of malocclusion.
Dr. Munira Lokhandwlaa wants her patients to book a consultation visit in her practice before they decide to undergo the procedure. She wants to make sure she makes the most appropriate recommendations for patients who are interested in rejuvenating their smile and addressing poor alignment. By completing an oral examination and x-rays, patients can find out if they are viable candidates. Dr. Munira Lokhandwala may suggest alternatives such as Invisalign, or even the placement of porcelain veneers for patients with other considerable cosmetic issues.
One question many patients have is about the cost of treatment. Patients are often led to believe that cosmetic procedures used to enhance the natural appearance of the smile are expensive and unattainable for even the tightest of budgets. However, our practice wants to make sure patients have access to the solutions they need to feel more confident and improve the health and beauty of their smiles. Not only do we accept many dental insurance plans, but we can also help patients finance the remainder of their out-of-pocket costs to ensure affordability. We don’t want the cost of treatment to keep patients from getting the services they need for their smile.
