What is Six Month Smiles®
While traditional braces are often very effective at straightening the teeth and improving misalignment issues, the fact is that they have some significant drawbacks. For one, metal braces are extraordinarily visible on your teeth, and can make people feel self-conscious when they smile. For another, they can be very uncomfortable inside the mouth. Plus, traditional braces typically stay on for at least a year, and even two years, in many cases. The good news is, Six Month Smiles® clear braces treatment is designed to reduce that time by roughly half. These state-of-the-art braces are also much less noticeable on the teeth, and are typically more comfortable to wear than the braces of the past.
Benefits of Six Month Smiles®
Some of the benefits of Six Month Smiles® treatments include:
- The braces are clear and the wires are colored to blend in with your natural teeth
- The braces use less force while repositioning your teeth
- It usually takes only about six months to achieve the desired results – compared to a year or more with traditional braces
- Six Months Smiles® is often less expensive than other orthodontic techniques
- Six Month Smiles® can correct issues such as severe teeth crowding, gaps, spaces, misalignment, and more
One of our experienced dentists, either Dr. Edward Romano or Dr. Robert Bizzarro, will meet with you for a consultation to answer your questions and help you determine if Six Month Smiles® is the right option for your needs.
The Six Month Smiles® Procedure
The wires used in Six Month Smiles® clear braces are tooth-colored and made from biocompatible nickel titanium, which can ultimately move your teeth into a better position more quickly. Once the braces are placed onto your teeth, they will begin to gently shift your teeth using a very low amount of force. There is no additional risk of root damage with Six Month Smiles® braces. Once the optimal results have been achieved, typically after about six months, the braces can be removed. Patients will need to wear a retainer after treatment to maintain the teeth’s new and straighter position.
Six Month Smiles® is one of the most advanced orthodontic procedures to come along in quite some time. With this advanced procedure, you can achieve successful results more comfortably and in much less time!
