Dr. Leonard Tau, a Northeast Philadelphia dentist is now able to offer patients a lower cost alternative to conventional metals braces and even invisalign in about 6 months with 6 month smiles.
- Philadelphia, PA-NJ (1888PressRelease) August 16, 2010 - Virtually invisible braces straighten teeth more quickly than traditional braces; Northeast Philadelphia dentist, Dr. Leonard Tau of the Pennsylvania Center For Dental Excellence now offers another option for smile correction.
Philadelphia-area adults and older teenagers looking to straighten their teeth can now get the smile they have always wanted - in just six months - through a cosmetic-braces procedure available from Dr. Leonard Tau. Dr. Tau is one of only a handful of dentist in Philadelphia who offers this service.
Dr. Tau, completed his training in Six Month Smiles, founded by Dr. Ryan Swain, DMD. The six-month braces technique, designed specifically for adults and teenagers over 15, who have crooked, crowded or spaced teeth - without major bite issues. It will also benefit those who wore braces as teenagers, but failed to wear their retainers, or found that their smiles aren't as straight now, as they were when the braces came off.
The technique offers tremendous advantages over traditional metal braces.
Unlike the traditional braces people must wear for two to four years, this procedure straightens teeth in an average of just six months and uses low force to move teeth more comfortably.
Six-month braces employ clear braces and tooth-colored, nickel-titanium wires - making them virtually invisible.
The procedure requires fewer dentist visits and is typically less expensive than traditional braces.
In addition, the six-month braces technique can result in healthier gums, since straight teeth are easier to clean than crooked teeth. Patients do not realized how difficult it is to clean teeth especially in the front that are crowded together.
"For the first time in Philadephia, the word 'braces' no longer has to strike fear among adults and older teens who want to straighten their teeth," said Dr. Leonard Tau, a graduate of Six Month Smiles & Cosmetic Dentistry. "They can now get the radiant smile they've always dreamed of, without waiting for years. Six-month braces are virtually invisible, and straighten teeth much more quickly and more comfortably than traditional braces."
Dr. Tau stresses the medical benefits of proper dental care, which helps fight against tooth wear and gum disease. Healthy teeth also encourage proper nutrition by enabling people to eat a variety of foods, help boost self-esteem and can reduce headaches and joint pain. He encourages people to ask their dentist if the six-month braces technique is a good option for them.
