Do you have crooked teeth but the thought of wearing metal braces is just not an option for you? Has the thought of long treatment periods to get straighter teeth been a turn off? How would you like to have straighter teeth by your next cleaning appointment? If you have answered yes to any of these questions, we have a wonderful solution for you called “Six Month Smiles.”
Many adults have gotten braces for their children and they went without. It’s just a natural thing to do that for most people. Some adults just don’t like the thought of all that metal in their mouth and to be frank, most people feel unattractive with a mouth full of metal. This is not to mention that the treatment time for traditional metal braces is normally 2 or more years.
Invisalign is a great option also but the treatment period is longer and you have to discipline yourself to put them in and wear them everyday. For a lot of busy folks, this becomes a headache and the treatment doesn’t get done properly.
So how does Six Month Smiles work and what makes it different? Six Month Smiles utilizes clear brackets that are very strong and tooth colored wires in order to move the teeth. At a conversational distance, they are hard to see. Secondly, they are only placed on the teeth you see when you smile. They are not placed on every tooth therefore they are only moving the teeth that you see when you smile. This also cuts down on some of the discomfort that people have when wearing traditional style braces. The result is that you can have straighter teeth in a shorter period of time.
So what’s the treatment time? Most patients have straighter teeth in 4 to 8 months. The average is 6 months thus the name Six Month Smiles. Just think! You can have straighter teeth and a more beautiful smile in between cleanings. This is not to mention you don’t have to be self-conscience about having a mouth full of metal.
The cost really depends on the condition of your teeth and how crooked they are. That is why it is important to get a consultation with the doctor ahead of time and go over the procedure and the treatment plan. A more general answer is they are typically less than traditional braces or Invisalign.
