The Six-Month Smiles system can provide fast and efficient treatment for those that want quick results in correcting dental problems. The orthodontic treatment focuses on aligning the teeth that you see when you smile rather than the whole set of teeth. This means that treatment that could take up to 2 years with other solutions can be completed in just six months. Six-Month Smiles use tooth coloured brackets and wires to re position the teeth.
If you choose to have the Six-Month Smiles treatment it will begin with the dentist taking an impression of your teeth. This impression will then be sent to a laboratory to create custom brackets for your teeth. The brackets are then fitted to your teeth and will work to realign and give you a winning smile. In order to work effectively the wire that forms part of the Six-Month Smiles solutions will need to be tightened every 4 weeks by a dentist who will also assess your progress.
Once the treatment has concluded a retainer will need to be worn to ensure your teeth remain in their new position. There are two options to choose from when having a retainer. It can either be removable or fixed, the fixed option is secured behind the teeth, providing a discreet choice. While it can be tempting to not wear a retainer, failing to do so can mean the results of the Six-Month Smiles treatment don’t last.
Typically, the treatment is completed within six months but this isn’t always the case and the total time will depend on each individual. Some may find that their treatment is completed just 4 months after the brackets have been fitted while others may need to continue treatment for a longer period of time. However, even if the treatment does take longer than the suggested six months, it will be much quicker than other traditional options.
The cost of the Six-Month Smiles system varies from person to person but in most cases it is cheaper than conventional brace treatments.
