What are Six Month Smiles?
Six Month Smiles are a newer orthodontic treatment that corrects crooked teeth in about six months. Although it is not recommended for cases of severe crowding and misalignment, Six Month Smiles may be an excellent option for patients who have slightly misaligned teeth and want a faster, less noticeable fix.
What Should I Reasonably Expect from Six Month Smiles?
Six Month Smiles works to straighten teeth in much the same manner as other braces. Because they are designed to correct crooked or crowded teeth in only six months, they are recommended for patients with only slight issues.
Are There Advantages to Six-Month Braces?
Six Month Smiles wearers enjoy the following advantages:
- Brackets and colored wires that blend in with the color of your teeth making them less noticeable
- More comfortable
- Results in less time
- Less expensive than other braces
How Do Six Month Smiles Straighten My Teeth?
Orthodontists use a combination of clear brackets and tooth-colored wires to straighten teeth with Six Month Smiles. A special adhesive is used to attach the brackets to your teeth, then wires are attached to the brackets. Orthodontists apply tension to the wires so that teeth are repositioned to their correct position just as with other forms of braces. The difference is that there is less tension which means less discomfort.
How Do I Know if Six Month Smiles Are Right for Me?
Six Month Smiles are recommended for patients who have specific issues with their teeth including extra spacing between the teeth, crowding, incorrect bite, or teeth that overlap. During your initial consultation, our orthodontists will evaluate the position of your teeth and bite to make a recommendation as to whether Six Month Smiles are right for you.
How Much Does Six Month Smiles Cost?
The cost of Six Month Smiles varies with each patient and depends on several factors. Some or all of your orthodontic treatment may be covered by your insurance, depending on your plan. In addition to accepting payment by cash, check or credit card, we have outside financing through CareCredit® and OrthoBanc® available for those who need to make payments over a longer period of time.
