Six Month Smiles

For the ultimate in quick orthodontic treatment, many adults are turning to the six-month smiles system. If you are self-conscious or embarrassed about your smile and would like to do something about it quickly, this could very well be the system for you.

What is Six Month Smiles?

six month smilesSix month smiles is a cosmetic braces system that works to speed up the process of traditional braces. Using some of the most advanced orthodontic techniques and modern materials orthodontists have devised a system that on average can correct smiles within just six months.

For patients who are interested in getting a straight smile faster and in some cases only six months, there are now a range of treatments that, dependent on the patients teeth, are now possible to achieve. One of these programs uses specialized clear braces which are gradually adjusted and straightened during intensive orthodontic visits over six months to eventually straighten and align teeth. Unlike other forms of traditional braces which are adjusted over a period of up to two years, six months smiles cosmetic braces are designed to work quickly and deliver results, as their name suggests in just six months (cases vary).

This revolutionary system of braces has got a variety of different adult patients talking. For people who are wary of dental work, on interested in receiving braces or simply want a quick fix for their smile, this could be the answer that they have always waited for. Other types of teeth straightening procedures can take a lot of time and also be very expensive. Six months smiles is affordable, effective and safe and is designed so anyone can receive a beautiful straight smile.

How Far Away is Your Smile ?

Beach Braces Smile Quote #16“The shortest distance between two people is a smile”

Beach Braces Smile Quote #16 “The shortest distance between two people is a smile”

A great philosopher once said “A smile connects us, you and me…A smile can be a language anyone can learn to speak”. Who is this great philosopher you ask?  None other than the great Kermit the Frog!

No matter where you are in the world a smile is universal. It means the same thing in every country. Even if you have no idea how to speak that language, you will be able to share happiness with them.

Scientists have found that when we smile neuropeptides are released in our brain. This allows the rest of our body to know what is going on. So when we smile endorphins are released giving us an energy boost and the ability to fight off stress. It has also been said that endorphins can cause pain relief. With all of these positives we can see how smile and laughter is the best medicine.

Wouldn’t that be great to get a prescription from the doctor that said, “Must laugh three times daily. Take with a full glass of water for fast relief” The awesome thing here is that we don’t need a prescription to laugh.

All we have to do is just begin smiling! Of course we cannot plan what is going to happen through our entire day. There may be things that happen around you to cause stress or unhappiness. The best way to combat those feeling is to try to stay positive and know that this is not the end of the world and you will be able to smile again soon.

Try your hardest to stay positive and surround yourself with others who do the same. Before you know it you will have that little pep in your step once again, and you will be ready to share your smile with the world!

Smile the Grouch Away

“If You Want to Spoil the Day of a Grouch, Give him a Smile”

invisalign smile

 

Beach Braces Smile Quote  #4

I know it’s hard, but it’s often the best way to not only ruin a grouches day but to boost your own, as the simple act of smiling reduces stress and releases mood enhancing endorphins. It’s still a mystery why humans are the only species that laugh, but I think I can safely say that in doing so you definitely feel better.

The first iconic smiley face was drawn in 1963 by American commercial artist Harvey Ball in under ten minutes and went on to sell for $45 to an insurance company who wanted to roll out a mood enhancing marketing campaign. If you’re curious how far away you can use your new found anti grouch super powers from, the answer is 33 feet.

So next time that grouch tries to ruin your day smile them into mercy. 🙂

If you want to create the perfect smile but are not keen on traditional braces, why not see if you are a eligible for clear braces, namely Invisalign, if you have any further question please contact us using the details below.

Twas the Night Before Christmas

’twas the night before Christmas and  Beach Braces was dark.

Not an employee was working, not even Penny’s bark.

 

Patients are enjoying their holiday break, No school, no tests, no homework, Thank goodness sake

 

Shelley’s shopping, golfing, and enjoying red wine.

She deserves this long break for a little down time.

 

Mary’s celebrating with her kids in El Segundo they are waiting for Santa’s visit, Ho, Ho, Ho!

 

Gloria’s cooking dinner for her three little ones.

Then they watch movies, read books and clip coupons.

 

Tami visits Disneyland with her energetic girl.

They sip cocoa, hug Mickey, and ride tea cups for a whirl.

 

Doc is working on long winter’s nap,

With Kamari & Penny snuggled in her lap.

 

Husband Charlie just celebrated his 40th birthday, by taking the dogs to the beach in his sandy “Chevrosleigh”

 

So what’s in store for Beach Braces in 2013?

Look out for some new additions in technology and team.

 

The iTero scanner is the newest machine.

It takes “goop less” impressions so our patients stay clean.

 

Scans a 3D picture of your teeth to create Invisalign Trays

We will feature it at one of our upcoming “Invisalign Days”

 

Araceli and Norma are returning to Beach Braces for action!

For those who remember then, this brings much satisfaction.

 

With a fantastic year almost behind us, we thank everyone for their trust, support and kindness.

 

We wish everyone Happy Holidays with smiles on our faces.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from all of us at Beach Braces
