Are you still in search for unique gift ideas this holiday season? Imagine the joy that a brand new smile could bring. By giving the incredible gift of Six Month Smiles the recipient can have straight teeth with little time.
What is Six Month Smiles?
Six Month Smiles is a cosmetic brace system made for straightening and aligning adult teeth. Though similar in function to traditional braces, clear brackets and tooth-colored wires make Six Month Smiles barely visible. These braces are considered to be an excellent method of teeth straightening and are very efficient at correcting crooked teeth over a short amount of time. It should be noted that Six Month Smiles is used for cosmetically altering the teeth and is not necessarily used to correct bite position.
What are the Benefits of Straightening with Six Month Smiles?
- The clear brackets and wires are great for adults who do not like the look of traditional metal braces.
- The average length of treatment time is just six short months!
- Generally, Six Month Smiles is less expensive than most other cosmetic dentistry procedures.
- More reliable and predictable end results.
- Fewer in-office visits because of the shortened average wear time.
Are Six Month Smiles More Comfortable Than Traditional Braces?
Because the time frame for Six Month Smiles is significantly shorter than other braces, many assume that it is more painful and requires more tightening than its traditional counterpart. But, Six Month Smiles actually uses low forces to gently pull the teeth into place. Standard orthodontic mechanics are in effect, but they are able to straighten quickly because they aren’t altering the patient’s bite.
What is the Process for a Six Month Smiles Treatment?
- Upon receiving this unique gift, the first step will be a consultation with either Dr. Nichols or Dr. Mascagni to make sure they are a candidate for Six Months Smiles. This is the perfect time to ask any questions about what to expect in terms of procedure and time frame for wearing the braces.
- Next, photos will be taken of the patient’s face and teeth from various angles. Impressions will be made of the upper and lower jaw and these will be used to create an individualized plan for the look to be achieved for the wearer. The results will be sent to a laboratory to be manufactured.
- Once the custom brackets and wires have arrived to the dentist’s office from the lab, they will be fitted onto the patient. This will be the longest appointment, as it is an orthodontic procedure.
- Short check-ups with the dentist will regularly take place to monitor the progression and make any necessary adjustments on the braces.
- After the process is completed, the braces will be removed to reveal the patient’s new smile.
