What is Six Month Smiles?
Six Month Smiles is a cosmetic orthodontic solution to straighter teeth. And it only takes six months!
Most adults want straight teeth, but they don’t want to walk around with a mouth full of metal. And they definitely don’t want their treatment to take years before they can enjoy that new smile. That’s why Dr. Salesky offers Six Month Smiles as a cosmetic-focused alternative to traditional braces that’s faster than any other product available today.
How Does Six Month Smiles Work?
Six Month Smiles is an alternative to traditional braces, and this revolutionary treatment allows you to straighten your teeth much more quickly, using a specialized, subtle system. Six Month Smiles involves braces that are built using tooth-colored wires and the Lucid-Lok clear bracket system, which makes the braces nearly invisible when worn. Then, using a low-force method of orthodontic correction, Six Month Smiles shifts teeth into the proper position in just six months, compared to the 2+ year treatment time of traditional braces. This treatment is an ideal alternative for those with minor orthodontic needs or those who desire straighter teeth for cosmetic purposes.
What Is The Process Like?
First, you’ll meet with Dr. Salesky to see if you’re a good candidate for treatment, or if another orthodontic option like Invisalign or traditional braces may be better for your particular needs. If you are a good candidate for Six Month Smiles, Dr. Salesky will develop your personalized treatment plan during your first appointment.
At your follow-up appointment, your braces will be placed on your teeth (which usually takes about an hour). You should expect to have your braces adjusted between 3-7 times during your treatment, though this will depend on the specifics of your case.
Every month you wear your braces, you’ll see improvements in your smile. Then, after about six months, Dr. Salesky will remove your braces, and provide you with a retainer that will help preserve your new smile.
What Are The Benefits Of Six Month Smiles?
- Faster than both Invisalign and braces – Invisalign usually takes at least a year to achieve optimal results, and traditional braces may need to be worn for 2 years or longer. In comparison, Six Month Smiles is much faster.
- Nearly invisible – The Lucid-Lok brackets and tooth-colored wires make your braces much less visible, which means that Six Month Smiles a great option if you’re self-conscious about wearing highly-visible traditional braces.
- Less pressure on teeth – Six Month Smiles exerts gentle, even pressure to move your teeth, minimizing pressure and discomfort.
Am I A Good Candidate For Treatment?
If you have healthy teeth and you do not have serious bite issue or major orthodontic problems, Six Month Smiles may be the right option for you. However, it’s important to note that Six Month Smiles is primarily intended as a cosmetic treatment, and should not be used if you have extensive orthodontic issues. It focuses on moving your six front teeth into a more pleasing position, rather than shifting all of the teeth in your mouth.
