Orthodontics at Pickering Dental Office

At Safavi Dental Clinic, our dentists in Pickering are more than happy to provide you with either one of Six Month Smiles® treatment or Invisalign® treatment for creating your ideal smile. While not designed to replace the use of orthodontic treatment, especially treatments which are recommended by a dental professional, these are short-term orthodontic treatments that are designed to be more aesthetic alternatives to classic orthodontics.


It is important to note that the mentioned systems are not intended as a direct substitution for traditional orthodontic treatment, but they are intended to provide patients with additional options to consider when making decisions for their oral health. Like with any procedure, you should discuss your oral health with a dental professional. This is so you can get additional advise on a variety of factors in your situation, including those that extend beyond the alignment of your teeth.

At Safavi Dental Clinic, our Pickering dentists will be more than happy to discuss your options with you on a variety of dental treatments. If you’re interested in booking an appointment regarding your dental health, you can contact our office today or request an appointment online.

Invisalign® treatment:
The Invisalign treatment system differs from traditional braces and the Six Months Smiles system in that there are NO traditional wires fixed to your teeth. The teeth are moved by wearing a set of removable "aligner trays" throughout the treatment time. In other words, every week a different set of aligner trays will be worn until the desired results are attained. Please watch the following video regarding a general overview of Invisalign treatment:

Six Months Smiles® treatment:

The Six Month Smiles system has modified aspects of traditional braces and orthodontic treatments to provide an alternate cosmetic solution which can be individually tailored to the needs of the patient. Some of the intended features of Six Month Smiles include:

  • The average treatment time can typically be as low as six months. It is important to note that this is not the case for all patients and individual circumstance may vary.

  • Six Month Smiles brackets and wires are designed to be translucent with the intention of reducing their visibility against your teeth when compared to traditional metallic braces.

  • Once the translucent brackets and wires are fixed to your teeth, you won't have to remove them until the end of your treatment.
