Six Month Smiles

Posted in Braces

Adults of this generation have access to orthodontic care that previous generations did not. In fact, a large percentage of orthodontic patients are now adults. There are a wide variety of braces to choose from, making it appealing to a variety of ages and backgrounds. When asked about whether or not they will consider braces, many adults still have a reservation about the treatment because of how much time may be involved in straightening their smile. Thankfully, there’s an option for that too: Six Month Smiles.

Six Month Smiles straightens the appearance of a person’s smile in just that…6 months! Unlike other types of orthodontic treatments, Six Month Smiles adult braces focuses on the teeth in the front of the mouth, not the ones in the back of the mouth. This frees up a lot of treatment time and movements, allowing the 6 month braces to reposition the front teeth into a straight alignment. After this short treatment span, patients have straight smiles that they’ll feel confident in, allowing them to smile in public as often as they like.

The braces also come in tooth colored shades, allowing them to be hidden from the view of other people that are around. A person would have to look very closely to be able to see the braces at all. Since the treatment span is so short, there are relatively few appointments needed compared to traditional braces.

Whether you’ve wanted to improve your smile for personal reasons, or simply want to catch that new promotion that’s coming up later this year, almost anyone can work Six Month Smiles into their busy routine!
