Six Month Smiles
Six Month Smiles is an orthodontic procedure that focuses on cosmetics. So if your main concern is not a fault with your arch, but simply correcting your smile to look fabulous, then Six Month Smiles is likely for you. How does Six Month Smiles work?
The Six Month Smiles Procedure
Much like regular braces, Six Month Smiles uses the familiar brackets and wires to gently pull your teeth into their proper positions. The similarity with braces pretty much ends there, however, as Six Month Smiles has a number of advantages built in.
- Six Month Smiles uses brackets and wires that are tooth colored, so instead of standing out, these braces are nearly invisible.
- Braces normally require a minimum of one to two years to complete a correction. Since Six Month Smiles is only focused on cosmetic repairs, you can have a perfect smile in just six months.
- Since Six Month Smiles takes less time, it also costs less than a full orthodontic correction. This makes it affordable for many patients who have long wanted to improve their appearance.
If your orthodontic problem requires a correction of your arch width or severe displacement of your teeth, a full orthodontic procedure would be required, using either Clear Correct or Invisalign. Nevertheless, Six Month Smiles can fix many of the most common problems with your front teeth, so make sure to consult with one of our Littleton family dentists to determine if you are a good candidate for Six Month Smiles. Either way, we can help you attain the dental goals you seek.
After finishing your treatment, some type of retainer will probably be necessary to preserve your adjustments. Typically we bond the retainer behind your teeth, where it can’t be seen, or we give you a nighttime retainer that you only wear while you sleep.
