Have you ever dreamed of having straighter teeth, but never went ahead because treatment with braces takes too much time? Or did you pass because were you concerned that bulky metal braces would make you feel even more self-conscious than the spacing or rotated teeth that made you want to have orthodontic treatment in the first place? With Six Month Smiles, we can solve both of those problems, and give you straight teeth in around six months.
What is Six Month Smiles?
Six Month Smiles is a process by which we can fix teeth that are crooked, misaligned, or have too much spacing, and we do it with two approaches depending upon the complexity of the treatment you need.
The first method of treatment that we can use is with clear aligners. Clear aligners are custom-made, clear, mouth guard-type trays that you wear on your teeth. They are strong enough to move your teeth into the proper position, yet flexible enough to be comfortable.
Clear braces are exactly that – braces with clear brackets and tooth-colored wires that are designed to move your teeth and be barely noticeable. And unlike treatment with traditional braces that can take many years, treatment with our clear braces usually averages six months.
How Do I Get Started with Six Month Smiles?
To get started, contact us for a consultation and we will help determine if you are a candidate. If you are a candidate, we will schedule you an appointment and get started in making your teeth straight!
How old do I have to be to have treatment with Six Month Smiles?
Treatment is indicated for adults 16 years of age and older.
Does treatment hurt?
As with any orthodontic treatment that moves teeth, there can be some mild temporary soreness.
Will I have to wear retainers after treatment?
Yes. Retainers are usually necessary to keep your teeth in their new, straight position.
