Six Month Smiles® in Annapolis & Calvert
Fast, Tooth-Colored Braces for Adults
If your front teeth are misaligned and you would like them straightened using a fast, unobtrusive system, Six Month Smiles may be the perfect solution for you. Six Month Smiles provides fast straightening of the visible teeth for patients aged 16 and up. Average treatment time is six months, and thanks to the system’s special tooth-colored brackets, the braces are barely noticeable.
The Benefits of Six Month Smiles
There are many advantages to the Six Month Smiles system, as compared to traditional braces.
Because Six Month Smiles focuses on straightening the front teeth only, treatment time is shorter. Depending on the patient, treatment can take anywhere from four to nine months to complete, with the average treatment length being six months.
Because treatment time is shorter, less visits to the doctor are required, so straightening your teeth with Six Month Smiles costs less than full orthodontic treatment with traditional braces.
Thanks to the tooth-colored brackets and wires used with the Six Month Smiles system, the braces are much less noticeable than traditional braces. Some people may not even notice that you are wearing braces at all.
You may think that because treatment is faster, heavy forces must be applied to move the teeth more quickly. This is not the case. Six Month Smiles uses low, gentle forces that do not overstress the teeth.
How Six Month Smiles Works
Six Month Smiles focuses on correcting only the front teeth that are visible in your smile. Because of this, treatment can be completed in only four to nine months.
The Six Month Smiles system uses tooth-colored brackets and wires that make the braces less noticeable. This helps to minimize interference with your social life.
Six Month Smiles cannot fix serious bite issues or correct alignment problems such as an overbite or underbite. However, if you are only concerned with the cosmetic appearance of your visible teeth, Six Month Smiles could be the right solution for you. After an oral examination and personal consultation, Dr. Schultheis will let you know if you are a candidate for Six Month Smiles.
If you would like straighter teeth, come in for a complimentary consultation and find out about the treatment options available to you. You will receive:
