For patients wanting a beautiful smile with straight teeth or needing to straighten their teeth for oral health reasons, it used to be that the only options were traditional braces (which are painful and treatment can last up to four years) or aligner trays (which are expensive, require a high degree of patient compliance, and must be removed to eat). But now there is Six Month Smiles®! The Six Month Smiles® system utilizes Lucid-Lok® clear brackets and tooth-colored wires, which are barely visible, to quickly and gently give adults (15 years of age and older) a straight, beautiful smile and healthy teeth. The system focuses on moving the teeth that show during smiling, rather than shifting the entire bite, resulting in a faster, more comfortable treatment.
Here’s what makes Six Month Smiles® so unique:
- Average treatment time of six months (most cases span four to nine months). Your smile could be straight before your next cleaning appointment!
- Optimized low forces increase patient comfort.
- Specialized patient tray kits ensure that appointments are comfortable, fast, and cause the teeth to move in a predictable and conservative manner.
- Typically less expensive than traditional braces, aligner therapy, or cosmetic veneers.
- Fewer visits to the dentist than traditional orthodontia, and nothing to lose unlike aligner therapy.
If you’re an adult or teenager (over 15) who has crooked, crowded, or spaced teeth – without major bite issues, Six Month Smiles® could be the solution for you! Most people are good candidates. Call Black Mountain Family Dentistry to schedule a consultation today.
