Orthodontics

couple smiling while cuddlingDr. Roberto Bellegarrigue, your Tampa, FL dentist is a proud facilitator of traditional braces, Six Month Smiles braces, and ClearCorrect aligners, three orthodontic systems that comfortably and safely shift your teeth into alignment.

Six Month Smiles is also known as six-month braces, fast adult braces, and cosmetic adult braces. Many North Tampa patients find that traditional metal braces are too visible for their lifestyle. This innovative orthodontic treatment uses inconspicuous clear braces and tooth-colored wires which match the shade of your existing teeth and blend in with your smile. As the name suggests, this orthodontic procedure is typically completed in as little as six months. 

Six Month Smiles produce reliable and precise results that are quicker than traditional metal braces. A modern twist on tried-and-trued-orthodontics, Six Month Smiles uses advanced and innovative dental technology that gently shifts your front teeth (or your smile line) into alignment.

This orthodontic treatment requires less adjustment and maintenance than traditional braces while also reducing your treatment time and visits to the dental office.
