6 Month Smiles

Posted in Braces

What if you could get braces that only focused on the aesthetic appearance of your smile? With Six Month Smiles, that’s exactly what patients get. The appearance of straighter teeth, where it really counts…in the front of their smile!

Six Month Smiles is a short, aesthetically-driven approach to orthodontics that results in a straighter smile in just 6 months. Most other types of orthodontic treatments take at least 12 months or as long as 3 years in some cases, due to the alignment needs of teeth throughout the entire mouth. Instead, Six Month Smiles allows dentists and their patients to focus their time and energy on correcting the appearance of the teeth that show when they smile.

Similar to other types of “invisible” braces, Six Month Smiles uses a clear alignment tray system to guide the patients teeth into the proper position. Each clear aligner tray is worn for about 2 weeks and then changed out with the next tray to move the teeth further into place. Gradually, teeth that are crooked or gapped come together into a straight position that looks great and boosts self-confidence.

Wearing Six Month Smiles is easy, comfortable, and takes up fewer appointments than any other type of braces. Change the trays out on your own at home, and see your dentist for occasional progress checks until your treatment is complete. The aligners are completely removable so you can eat whatever you want, as well as enjoy regular brushing and flossing without wires or brackets to clean around.

Don’t wait another day. Schedule your Six Month Smiles consultation today and have straighter teeth in just a few months!
