Six Month Smiles Clear Braces

Set of Clear Dental AlignersAs a fast, effective and affordable solution for achieving the smile you’ve always wanted, Six Month Smiles is a clear braces system that promises to straighten teeth in an average of six months. For those hoping to avoid the hassle of metal brackets and wires used in traditional orthodontics, not to mention the lengthy treatment times, the innovative design of Six Month Smiles is an exciting alternative. Are you wondering if Six Month Smiles is right for you?

Generally, the Six Month Smiles system is for individuals that are 16+ years of age that have crooked, spaced or misaligned teeth. Yet, the only way to be certain that you’re a candidate for Six Month Smiles is to meet with a provider. Once this is determined, dentists begin by taking impressions of a patient’s teeth. With advanced 3-D digital technology, a patient can plan, preview and predict his or her smile before treatment begins. As such, the impressions are sent to a lab where they are customized based on the needs and desires of the patient.

A special kit is then sent to the dentist that includes bonding trays, pre-fabricated wires and clear brackets. Arch-wires, which contain a shape-memory, are designed to move teeth along a continuum. Throughout treatment, patients will receive a new arch-wire with each adjustment to ensure that teeth continue to move according to the unique treatment plan. Thus, the six months smiles system produces results that are easily seen and measured.

Given its revolutionary design, it’s easy to see why Six Month Smiles is appealing to teens and adults seeking a more discreet way to straighten their teeth. What’s more, patients can continue normal activities during treatment, because the Six Month Smiles system produces very little disruption to their lifestyle.

Had a great visit! Janice was a pleasure and Dr. Porcaro was very personable. They both made me feel at ease. The doctors husband (can’t remember his name) was able to find the best financing to fit our budget. I would definitely recommend Grateful Dental to my friends and family.
