How does Six Month Smiles Work?
This system of cosmetic braces achieves results quickly by using the same predictable mechanisms as regular braces, including brackets and wires. However, all appliances in Six Month Smiles treatment are completely tooth-colored; your braces will not be a distracting part of your appearance, like silver appliances can be.
Six Month Smiles shortens treatment time by only moving visible teeth in your smile line. While full, traditional braces are applied to realign bite and all teeth to promote better function and health, our cosmetic braces realign visible teeth to meet aesthetic goals, so your treatment time is a fraction of what it would be with traditional orthodontics.
Six Month Smiles vs. Tray-Based Clear Braces
Clear, removable braces are a popular treatment among teens and adults who are concerned about the way their smiles will look while undergoing care. However, the range of alignment problems that removable aligners can fix is limited to mild cases of teeth overlap, gaps, and rotation. Patients using this system must also be diligent about wearing their aligners; removing them too frequently can prolong treatment time.
In comparison, Six Month Smiles is:
• More versatile
• Tooth-colored and discreet
As Six Month Smiles still utilizes brackets and wires affixed to teeth, it can correct more complex instances of crowded and twisted teeth that tray-based orthodontics cannot. Six Month Smiles offers the best combination of dependable treatment with aesthetic appeal.
