For many, the beginning of a new year is the perfect time to draw up resolutions, jot down goals, and make plans for the perfect summertime vacation. Yet, did you know that it’s possible to achieve your best smile before this year’s vacation? Advancements in dentistry have awarded dental professionals and patients with Six Month Smiles, a modification to the tried and true method of straightening teeth. Treatment with Six Month Smiles is virtually invisible, affordable, and most importantly, average treatment times are six months!
While traditional metal braces remain a popular orthodontic treatment for straightening teeth, longer treatment times and aesthetics prove discouraging for many patients, especially for adults and those with mild to moderate cosmetic-type concerns. Therefore, Six Month Smiles is gaining attention for those seeking a more simple, common sense approach to achieving a better smile.
To better understand, the Six Month Smile system consists of a brace that is made of nickel titanium wires and brackets that apply a small amount of pressure to shift teeth.
Chair time is kept to a minimum as brackets are bonded to teeth using indirect bonding trays, instead of bracket-by-bracket.
Is The Six Month Smiles System For Me?
As with any other dental treatment, results are optimal with the right candidate. While the best way to determine if you’re a good candidate for the Six Month Smiles system is to schedule a consultation with your dentist, the following are a few considerations:
