Are you looking for a way to get straighter teeth and a better-looking smile? Do you want to get it done quickly? Then you might be a good candidate for Six Month Smiles, which is a short-term orthodontic treatment with a modern twist on tried-and-true orthodontics.
Braces are the most widely used method to give patients straight, healthy teeth and a beautiful smile. Six Month Smiles has taken the best aspects of braces and modified the treatment and the materials to give adults a common-sense, cosmetic solution to fit your lifestyle.
Our adult patients appreciate that the brackets are clear, the wires are tooth-colored, and the treatment usually takes a mere six months!
Besides producing great cosmetic results, Six Month Smiles can also be used for some more advanced corrective orthodontic treatments, such as:
Six Month Smiles braces are also ideal for orthodontic problems that cause issues with the front teeth, such as:
- Spacing problems.
- Open bites.
- Crowding teeth.
We can evaluate your bite alignment and tooth spacing to determine whether Six Month Smiles is a great solution for your smile!
What can you expect with Six Month Smiles?
After receiving a detailed examination of your jaw, teeth, gums, and overall oral health, our dentists will obtain X-rays, photographs, and impressions that will be used to determine whether or not Six Month Smiles will work for you.
After deciding that Six Month Smiles will be an effective treatment for your needs, the next step is for the laboratory to calculate the precise tooth movements required to straighten your front teeth. Then we’ll decide where exactly to place the clear brackets and tooth-colored wires.
The following visit to Tabor Dental Associates will consist of fitting the clear brackets and tooth-colored wires. After the fitting, the brackets will be bonded to your front teeth. They are placed in exactly the right positions, and a custom tray is inserted to hold them in place.
Once each bracket is set, the tray is removed, and the adhesive is hardened with a high-intensity light. The last steps in fitting the Six Month Smiles braces are to attach the tooth-colored wires and adjust them to fit.
Six months or so later, you have the straight teeth you have always wanted— without anyone noticing you were undergoing treatment!
