Classic Smiles Team
Six Month Smiles
Have you ever wondered how people with straight, even teeth got that perfect placement? While some are genetically blessed others are not so lucky and need to seek dental treatment for a dazzling smile. These treatments have come a long way since traditional metal braces, and Classic Smiles can discuss these modern options with you.
A New Smile in 6 Months
One of the most popular alignment options on the market is called the Six Month Smiles system. If you are over 16 and want to correct tooth placement, but in a discrete manner, this could be a perfect option. Like the name states, this system is designed to realign teeth in months rather than years. And forget about obvious metal braces as Six Months Smile offers invisible treatment.
The first step is to see if you are a good candidate for this system, a question we can answer here at the office. If Six Month Smiles is right for you, we will track your progress from beginning to end in addition to post-treatment care. While most patients do see complete results in 6 months, treatment times can vary between 4-9 months.
Understanding the System
The Six Month Smiles treatment options are clear aligners and clear braces. The aligners are designed to be barely visible and are made of a material called Zendura FLX which offer properties similar to memory foam. This delivers great comfort when wearing the aligner which is designed to fit the unique shape of your teeth. Another benefit is not having to get any hardware tightened! This option focuses on teeth that are visible when a person smiles.
The clear braces are for patients 16 and older with crooked, misaligned, or spaced teeth. Unlike traditional metal, these braces are clear and held together with tooth-colored wires. They are equally effective for repositioning teeth and are only placed on specific areas instead of the entire mouth. These braces are also more comfortable due to using less force than older methods. Since they perform their straightening function in only 3-7 months, they are more hygienic than metal braces as this is less time food particles can amass.
Traditional orthodontic methods can take two years or more to correct teeth, but the Six Month Smile options take 7-9 months. Not only are these aligners and braces more discrete, they are more affordable due to the shorter treatment time. The cost will range between $3,500 and $5,000 depending on treatment time. We can help you determine a solid cost plus find out if your dental insurance will cover any part of it.
A lot of people put aside corrective dental work due to the toll it might take on their appearance. Thanks to Six Month Smiles you no longer have to worry about this. Classic Smiles is proud to offer this option to help people boost their confidence not just after treatment but during the corrective process itself.
