Six Month Smiles
Crooked teeth can have a major impact on all aspects of your life. One of the biggest issues with crooked teeth is that they affect the quality of your smile. When your smile is less than perfect, it can lead you to become self-conscious. You find yourself doing everything you can to hide your smile from others, an act that can leave the wrong impression. Traditionally, braces are used to correct crooked teeth and repair your smile and restore your oral health. However, traditional braces have some significant downsides. For one, the metal stands out against the rest of your teeth and can contribute to more self-consciousness. Not only that, but it can take up to three years to complete treatment. At Kelly Smile Dentistry, we can give you a straighter smile in less time with Six Month Smiles.
What Is Six Month Smiles?
Six Month Smiles is a cosmetic treatment that is designed to straighten your crooked teeth in a fraction of the time of traditional braces. Much like the name suggests, Six Month Smiles can close gaps and straighten the appearance of your smile in only six months, providing an ideal solution for patients who wish to have a straighter, more beautiful smile, in a short amount of time.
Six Month Smiles is a cosmetic treatment, not an orthodontic one. It is an ideal solution for correcting crooked teeth or gaps between teeth. It cannot provide a solution for bite problems or other orthodontic issues.
How Six Month Smiles Works
Similar to traditional braces, Six Month Smiles uses brackets and wires to correct your cosmetic issues. However, unlike traditional braces, these brackets and wires are tooth-colored, or even clear, making them more discreet.
Six Month Smiles operates on the same principles of traditional braces, and even moves your teeth at the same speed. The biggest difference between the two is that Six Month Smiles does not focus on all of your teeth. Instead, this treatment focuses only on the teeth visible when you smile.
Before undergoing treatment with Six Month Smiles, we first perform a thorough consultation, during which time we examine your mouth as well as take x-rays and impressions. This helps us to determine that Six Month Smiles is truly the right solution for you. Next, we determine correct bracket placement and set the brackets on your teeth. Once in place, you will need to return for monthly follow-ups so that we can make a quick adjustment. In about six months, when your teeth are where they need to be, the brackets and wires are removed, and you leave with a beautiful, perfect smile. We also provide you with a retainer, which will help you to maintain the results of your treatment.
