San Diego Cosmetic Dentist Offers Straighter Teeth With Six Month Smiles®
Dr. Cathy Santone provides an innovative orthodontic solution for her patients at Encinitas Cosmetic Dentistry who are seeking a more beautiful and healthy smile.
San Diego, CA – From teeth whitening to complete smile makeovers, Cathy Santone, DDS performs a wide range of cosmetic dentistry procedures designed to improve the appearance and health of her patients’ teeth and gums. According to Dr. Santone, one of the most common aesthetic concerns men and women want to address is misaligned or crowded teeth. To address this need, the San Diego dentist provides a number of solutions, including Invisalign®, ClearCorrect™, and Six Month Smiles®.
According to Dr. Santone, while many of her patients at Encinitas Cosmetic Dentistry are familiar with aligner systems such as Invisalign®, Six Month Smiles® may be a better alternative for certain individuals. While treatments like Invisalign® and ClearCorrect™ use customized removable aligners to gently guide the teeth into place, Dr. Santone says these methods require more diligence on the part of the patient. She highlights that forgetting to wear the aligners for even one day can significantly prolong the length of treatment. When recommending the best method of teeth straightening for a particular patient, she notes: “While the aim of Invisalign® is to attain perfectly aligned teeth, it may not be effective for treating severely crowded or crooked teeth.” Conversely, Dr. Santone says Six Month Smiles® can greatly improve crowded or misaligned teeth in as few as four months.
After learning about the advantages of this innovative treatment, many of her patients inquire about the cost of Six Month Smiles®. According to the cosmetic dentist, the exact price of the treatment can vary from patient to patient, depending on the severity of the dental issues that need to be addressed. However, she also states: “In almost all cases, Six Month Smiles® is stronger and less expensive than metal braces, lingual braces, or clear teeth aligners.” Dr. Santone says she wishes to make the ability to achieve straight and healthy teeth available to as many of her patients as possible. In keeping with this aim, Encinitas Cosmetic Dentistry offers a number of financing options for patients who do not have dental insurance, and tries to help each patient find an affordable payment plan.
