Six Month Smiles Invisible Braces
For many adults the very thought of wearing a traditional adult brace can bring up a number of anxieties- will it be a painful experience? Will I feel self conscious? Will I have to wear the brace for a long time? However, these worries are addressed with a new alternative treatment programme, known as Six Month Smiles. It offers a quicker and less noticeable alternative to the traditional metal brace for adults and teenagers looking to straighten their teeth, meaning that people can now get the radiant smile they’ve always dreamed of, without waiting for years.
Adults and older teenagers can now get the smile they have always wanted – in just six months – through this cosmetic-braces system . The Six Month Smiles System is designed specifically for adults and teenagers (over 15), who want to remedy crooked, crowded or spaced teeth – without major bite issues.
Whilst six months sounds good, perhaps people will still be concerned that they will still have a mouth full of metal for the whole time. The answer is emphatically no! These are nothing like metal braces! The Six Month Smiles System uses Six Month Smiles Lucid-Lok™ clear brackets and tooth-colored wires which are virtually invisible making them much less obvious than a traditional brace.
Six Month Smiles has taken the best aspects of traditional metal braces and modified the treatment and the materials to offer a common-sense, cosmetic solution that fits the patients’ lifestyle. It uses virtually invisible braces to straighten teeth more quickly than traditional braces.
The technique offers a number of advantages over traditional metal braces.
Unlike traditional braces that people must typically wear for two to four years, this procedure straightens teeth in an average of just six months and uses low forces to gently move teeth more comfortably.
Many people think that the accelerated treatment means simply “tightening” regular braces to get the teeth moving, but that is not true. Six Month Smiles makes use of standard orthodontic mechanics, but with an emphasis on the cosmetic appearance of your teeth rather than the position of your bite.
The key components of the treatment are the use of special nickel titanium wires and a primary focus of moving the teeth that show when you smile.
The system is safe and hygienic, there are no more risks of root damage or other issues than those associated with traditional orthodontics. Since the forces used with Six Month Smiles braces are lighter and teeth are seldom extracted, there are actually even fewer risks involved with Six Month Smiles orthodontics.
As with any teeth-straightening treatment a retainer is necessary to maintain the straighter position of your teeth. If you don’t want to wear a removable retainer, you can have a bonded retainer placed. There are a variety of options that you can choose from according to your personal preference and situation.
Six Month Smiles Patient Tray Kits™ ensure that your appointments are fast and comfortable.
The procedure requires fewer dentist visits and is typically less expensive than traditional braces, aligner therapy, or veneers, and the result is straighter teeth and a brighter smile that you just can’t wait to show off!
