Six Month Smiles®
Your smile is the first impression you leave. Crooked teeth can significantly impact the quality of your smile, as well as your confidence. They can even impact the types of impressions you leave on those around you. Traditionally, the only way to treat crooked teeth was with metal braces. While effective, and still a common treatment today, metal braces can often invoke more self-consciousness than having crooked teeth. At Oasis Dental, we can provide you with an alternative treatment, providing you with faster results, with Six Month Smiles.
What are Six Month Smiles?
Six Month Smiles is a cosmetic treatment that involves straightening the teeth at the front of your mouth only. Using Six Month Smiles, we can correct crooked teeth and close gaps. This allows us to enhance the beauty of your smile, greatly boosting your self-confidence. Six Month Smiles is purely cosmetic. Unlike traditional braces, Six Month Smiles cannot be used to correct major alignment issues with your teeth or any alignment issues with your jaw.
How Does Treatment with Six Month Smiles Work?
Much like traditional braces, Six Month Smiles uses brackets and wires to correct the alignment of your visible teeth. However, unlike traditional braces, Six Month Smiles does not use metal. Instead, the brackets and wires are tooth-colored or clear, which allows for a more discreet treatment. Additionally, where traditional braces treat all of your teeth, Six Month Smiles focuses only on the teeth visible in your smile.
Before you begin your treatment with Six Month Smiles, we first perform a thorough consultation to make sure that this treatment is right for you. If you are deemed a good candidate, we take X-rays and impressions of your mouth. Impressions allow us to determine optimal bracket placement. The brackets are then bonded to the front surfaces of your visible teeth, and the wires are attached. We arrange monthly appointments for adjustments, which allow your teeth to be guided to the proper positions. Once your treatment is complete, which generally takes only six months to complete, your brackets are removed, and you are provided with a retainer to help maintain your results.
What are the Benefits of Six Month Smiles?
Six Month Smiles provides several significant advantages. These include:
||Faster treatment. You achieve a more beautiful, more confident smile in only six months. This is just a fraction of the time that it takes to correct teeth with traditional braces.
||Affordability. Six Month Smiles costs less than treatment with traditional braces. It even costs less than other cosmetic treatments such as crowns and veneers.
||Discreet treatment. The brackets and wires are tooth-colored or clear, making them much less visible than with metal. You do not have to worry about having a shiny metal smile, even if it is only for a short period.
Six Month Smiles allows us to help correct the alignment of your teeth, giving you a beautiful smile that you have always wanted. Moreover, it can be done in less time than with traditional braces.
