6 Months Smiles

Here is what makes 6 Month Smiles so innovative…

Who can Benefit from the 6 Month Smile?

The 6 month smile treatment is ideal for those who would like to improve the appearance of their smile, involving the teeth that are in the front part of the mouth. This treatment is suitable for the correction of minor spacing between the teeth, crooked teeth, and minor bite-related problems. The six month smiles system is a great orthodontic option for those who would like to see visible teeth straightening results in just a few months, in a discreet manner.

Beneifts of the 6 Month Smile

The 6 month smile treatment works in an average of just six months, compared to the longer period of time that it takes for traditional metal braces to show visible teeth straightening results (usually lasting up to a few years). This means that you can enjoy better-looking smiles with a shortened orthodontic treatment period.

The clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires that are used in the six month smiles treatment are very discreet and are barely visible, making it possible for the orthodontic treatment to be carried out in a very discreet way. There is no need to be embarrassed with metal wires or brackets that are too obvious to others, which are used in traditional orthodontic treatments.

The 6 month smile braces are designed to move the teeth into their desired position in a gentle yet quick way – so less discomfort can be expected with the low forces that are used by this system, compared to traditional metal braces.

The six month smiles treatment is generally more economical when compared to other orthodontic or teeth straightening treatments, such as aligner therapy, traditional braces, or dental veneers.

Questions and Answers about the Six Month Smiles

Q: What is 6 Month Smiles?

A:

  • 6 Month Smiles™ braces are clear
  • Wires are usually tooth-coloured and very small
  • Treatment times usually fall within 4-9 months
  • Discomfort is minimal as teeth are gently repositioned
  • Cost is usually less than traditional braces

Q: How can teeth be straightened in only 6 months?

A: The 6 Month Smiles™ technique employs the latest technology and techniques in dentistry to move your teeth quickly and safely using a brace that is attached to your teeth. The key components of the treatment are the use of special nickel titanium wires and a primary focus of moving the teeth that show when you smile.

Q: 6 months sounds good, but will I still have a mouth full of metal for the whole time?

A: No! 6 Month Smiles™ dentists use tooth-coloured braces that are barely visible. The wires are usually tooth-coloured as well. These are nothing like metal braces!

Q: How are 6 Month Smiles™ more comfortable than regular braces?

A: 6 Month Smiles™ use low force to move teeth more comfortably. Many people think that the accelerated treatment means simply “tightening” regular braces to get the teeth moving, but that is not true. 6 Month Smiles™ utilizes standard orthodontic mechanics, but with an emphasis on the cosmetic appearance of your teeth rather than the position of your bite.

Q: Do 6 Month Smiles™ braces damage the teeth, roots, or gums?

A: There are no more risks of root damage or other issues than those associated with traditional orthodontics. Since the forces used with 6 Month Smiles™ braces are lighter and teeth are seldom extracted, there are actually even fewer risks involved with 6 Month Smiles™ orthodontics.

Q: Will I have to wear a retainer?

A: Yes, as with any teeth-straightening treatment a retainer is necessary to maintain the straighter position of your teeth. If you don’t want to wear a removable retainer, you can have a bonded retainer placed. There are a variety of options that you can choose from according to your personal preference and situation.

Q: Would I be suitable?

A: If you are an adult (15 years and older) with crooked or spaced teeth and you’re not looking for a major alteration to your bite, this could be the solution for you! Most adults ARE candidates for 6 Month Smiles.
