Rating: 5 Dermatologist Walnut Creek - Five Star Reviews By James W.
Dr. William E. Virtue DDS, FIAOMT, NMD
I have been going to Dr. Virtue's dental office for many years after going to many other dentists in the area with no sucess. This practice is the TOTAL EXPERIENCE! From the time in walk in until you walk out you feel that not only are you in the best hands but that you are among experienced, caring friends. Not only do they care about their patients but about each other and it is apparent from the first visit. If you are looking for a dentist I strongly recommend Virtue Dental Care in Yadkinville. It is worth trying. Bet you can't just go one time!

North Carolina dentist helps patients get straighter teeth in no time with Six Month Smiles

Imagine straightening your teeth in six months or less. You can get the smile of your dreams in no time at Virtue Dental Care, thanks to Six Month Smiles.

Get to know efficient orthodontic treatment

Harnessing the standard mechanics associated with traditional orthodontic treatment, Six Month Smiles uses low forces to gently guide teeth into proper position. A modern alternative to metal braces, Six Month Smiles only moves the teeth in your "smile zone." This approach provides cosmetic improvements by using visually appealing Lucid-Lock clear brackets and tooth-colored wires. When your friend or co-worker looks at you, he or she doesn't see silver and metal. They see your increasingly straighter teeth, because the braces are designed to blend in with your natural teeth.

Are you a good candidate for Six Month Smiles?

Dr. Virtue may recommend Six Month Smiles to adult patients who have crooked or unevenly-spaced front teeth. While every patient is unique, children and teenagers usually need full braces. Also, if your needs for straightening or bite correction are more complex, the Virtue Dental Care team may recommend other types of orthodontic treatments such as full braces. Today's braces have never been more comfortable and aesthetically-pleasing.

The doctor also offers Invisalign. This treatment uses aligner trays to correct many of the same conditions that traditional braces address. The trays are clear and, unlike fixed braces, they may be removed for eating and cleaning but they must be worn 20-22 hours a day. The Inman Aligner is also clear and removable, but like Six Month Smiles these aligner trays only move the most visible front teeth.

The focus on your most noticeable teeth allows treatments like Six Month Smiles to achieve desired results for patients in less time than either conventional braces or Invisalign. Generally, traditional orthodontics must be worn for at least a year, sometimes up to three years or longer. Even Invisalign treatment can take 12 months or longer, as this approach is used to reposition many teeth and address problems that affect the function as well as the appearance of the teeth.

Just how accelerated your treatment with Six Month Smiles will be depends on the case. Treatment can take a little more or a little less time, from four to nine months. Your treatment time depends on how much movement is required to reposition your front teeth into proper alignment.

Plenty of reasons to smile

Six Month Smiles often costs less than traditional braces or modern aligners, because of the accelerated treatment schedule. Six Months Smiles also saves time. Fewer dental visits mean fewer appointments to book within the constraints of your already busy schedule. This technique is low-risk due to the light and gentle mechanisms and materials used to move teeth.
