Contact us today to learn more about Six Month Smiles and find out if you are eligible for this type of treatment.
Who is a Good Candidate for Six Month Smiles?
The only way to know if you are a qualified candidate for Six Month Smiles is to schedule an appointment with Dr. Diercks or Dr. Karamardian. It is during this visit that they will examine your smile and make notes of the problems you wish to address. If you previously wore orthodontics but are noticing that your teeth are shifting, there is a good chance you’ll be eligible for treatment. Not only can this solution improve your overall aesthetics, but it will also correct any dental problems that can lead to worsening oral health issues.
How Do Six Month Smiles Work?
Six Month Smiles works just like regular metal braces; however, because it is an accelerated form of orthodontics, most patients can expect to see results in as little as six months. You should know this is not always the case, as some smiles can take longer to treat because of the severity of the problem. Your dentist will be able to explain how long you can expect to wear these braces during your initial consultation.
The reason for this is that Six Month Smiles is typically designed to treat only those teeth that are most visible, as they can move more easily than other teeth in your mouth.
With clear brackets and tooth-colored wires, the applied pressure will cause your teeth to shift in the right direction, allowing you to see a more beautiful aesthetic and healthier smile when you’re finished with treatment.
Benefits of Six Month Smiles
While there are other orthodontic solutions available (i.e., traditional metal braces, Invisalign), you cannot achieve the same results in the same amount of time. With Six Month Smiles, you will notice clear advantages over other treatments, some of which include:
- A faster way to achieve a straighter, more beautiful smile with most cases finishing in 6 months versus 2-3 years.
- A more subtle and discreet way to straighten your teeth with the help of tooth-colored wires and clear brackets that blend in with your natural tooth color.
- An affordable treatment option because it takes less time than Invisalign or metal braces.
