Short-term orthodontics is becoming more and more popular, especially for patients who wish to look their best for a forthcoming special occasion.
Six Month Smiles & their properties
As the name suggests, Six Month Smiles is an accelerated orthodontic treatment that corrects cosmetic dental issues in a shorter time period than traditional brace types. Using traditional braces as the basis for their design, the brace offers features such as Lucid-Lok clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires that match the exact shade of your teeth. Its inconspicuous appearance makes Six Month Smiles a popular choice with patients looking for a subtle brace design that is aesthetically in-keeping with their smile.
What kind of issues can Six Month Smiles tackle?
Although Six Month Smiles can’t deal with fundamental structural or bite issues, the braces can make cosmetic changes that correct spacing problems and crooked teeth. They deal principally with the teeth known as the ‘social six,’ which are those most visible when you smile. Perhaps you have a wedding around the corner or a special birthday event and your front teeth need some minor attention? Six Month Smiles is a fast-acting treatment that can produce results in very little time. Other problems that can be addressed by the braces are mild cases of overbite and underbite, and overlapping teeth.
How come Six Month Smiles braces work so quickly?
It is understandable that patients might wonder about how the brace is able to produce results in such a short space of time. The braces employ low force to move the teeth and as they are only dealing with your front teeth, treatment time becomes streamlined. Six Month Smiles are cost-effective, being less expensive than traditional braces, aligners and veneers, though they can be used in conjunction with the latter.
