If you have been searching for a quick and efficient way to improve the appearance of your smile, then you may want to hear more about Six Month Smiles. This orthodontic option helps patients achieve attractive smiles without undergoing lengthy treatment. Today our Lincoln Park cosmetic dentists are answering some commonly asked questions about this exciting aesthetic options.
Q: How does Six Month Smiles work?
A: Like traditional orthodontics, Six Month Smiles uses brackets and wires to move teeth into better alignment. The specific brackets and wires that we use are tooth colored, so that the braces blend into the patient’s smile. Over the course of treatment, the wire applies appropriate tension to torque to the teeth, so that they become better aligned.
Now, where’s the key to Six Month Smiles: this treatment focuses only on those teeth that are move visible and aesthetically impactful. By narrowing the scope of the treatment goals, our dentist is able to achieve dramatic cosmetic results in a short period of time.
Q: Is Snap on Smile right for me?
A: The best way to figure this out is to schedule an appointment with our dental team. During your consultation, we’ll assess your smile and learn more about your aesthetic goals.
Generally speaking, patients who have overall health smiles do well with Six Month Smiles. This is because this treatment isn’t ideal for correcting serious structural problems. Six Month Smiles is truly an aesthetic treatment.
As you’ve probably worked out, the average treatment timeline for Six Month Smiles is 6 months. However, sometimes treatment can take slightly less or more time; this depends on the current state of the patient’s smile. Again, we’ll be able to give you a better idea of your treatment timeline during your consultation.
