Do you have a smile that makes you less than happy? Are gaps or crooked teeth causing you to cover your mouth when you smile? If you have thought about life with straighter teeth but haven’t wanted to commit to years of braces, Dr. James Whatley has a solution for you: Six Month Smiles!
What is Six Month Smiles?
Six Month Smile is a revolutionary short-term braces. Six Month Smiles combines the superior aesthetics of clear braces with the proven effectiveness of metal braces. Instead of a full metal appliance, Six Month Smile feature nearly invisible Lucid-Lok® brackets and tooth-colored wires. The best part is that you don’t have to wear the braces for years—most people see results in about six months on average!
Six Month Smiles vs. Traditional Braces
Unlike metal braces, the Six Month Smile system targets certain teeth only—those that show when you smile. Low, gentle forces realign specific teeth, so you can see results faster. Because of the short treatment time and ultra-comfortable device, patient compliance is very high. Other advantages of the Six Month Smiles system:
• You can brush and floss easily.
• Six Month Smile is typically more affordable than braces, aligner therapy, or veneers.
• Six Month Smile kits mean faster dental appointments.
• There is low risk of tooth damage because of gentle forces.
Retainers are still required after you complete Six Month Smiles treatment. This is done to maintain your teeth’s ideal position. Depending on your preference, your dentist can provide a bonded or removable retainer.
Is Six Month Smiles Right for You?
Six Month Smile is a great way to straighten your teeth quickly and effectively, but it is not for everyone. Six Month Smile is designed to be a cosmetic procedure that improves your smile’s appearance, not correct bite or mouth shape issues.
