What is Six Month Smiles®?
Six Month Smiles® is a cosmetic dentistry solution that provides patients with straight, attractive teeth in a short amount of time. While traditional braces can take as long as three years before the results are complete, this treatment only takes about six months! This makes it an ideal solution for adults who want their teeth to appear straighter without having to endure an extended treatment. Six Month Smiles® is great for correcting crooked teeth and gaps or spaces.
In contrast to traditional orthodontics, Six Month Smiles® is purely a form of cosmetic dentistry. The goal here is not to correct your bite but to improve the appearance of your visible teeth. However, like traditional braces, Six Month Smiles® uses wires and brackets to move teeth. These appliances can be tooth colored or clear for a discreet appearance.
How does it work?
Six Month Smiles® moves teeth at about the same rate as traditional braces. The difference is that Six Month Smiles® does not try to move all of the teeth; only the front teeth that are visible when you smile are moved. The goal of this treatment is not to correct your bite or any functional problems but to improve the appearance of your smile. Once the front teeth are positioned correctly, the treatment can stop.
Since this is simply a form of cosmetic dentistry, the treatment can be completed much quicker than with traditional braces. In most cases, it will take about six months to complete. To learn more about six month braces in Buford, GA, contact Dr. Moore and schedule your consultation today!
