Six Month Smiles
Would you like straighter teeth in approximately 6 months?
Six Month Smiles from Andover Dental Practice is a simple, gentle, minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that corrects alignment issues with the top and bottom front six teeth, and can level and round out the arches, thus satisfying the needs of the vast majority of adult patients who seek orthodontic treatment.
Six Month Smiles uses clear orthodontic brackets and tooth-colored wires. The treatment works much like that using clear aligners, but tooth movement is much more predictable and usually more than twice as quick. The wires put gentle pressure on the brackets to level and align the teeth with minimal discomfort to the patient. The gingiva follows this movement to achieve a fully aesthetic outcome.
Six Month Smiles is a fast, effective and affordable treatment when adults are seeking to correct their smiles. Because we do not claim to address major orthodontic issues, Six Month Smiles can be done very quickly, making it more affordable than all other orthodontic options.
Six Month Smiles takes less time than conventional orthodontics because it focuses only on the “social six”, the front teeth that most influence the smile. The process is further enhanced with the use of special wires, which exert gentle pressure to force movement in the teeth.
With clear brackets and tooth-colored wires, Six Month Smiles is barely noticeable – and worn for only a fraction of the time compared to traditional braces. Standard orthodontic mechanics are still involved with SIX MONTH SMILES, but because it’s just the front teeth, the force required is minimal. The wires exert mild pressure to force the teeth to move, and this is done without the need for severe tightening which causes the discomfort noted in conventional orthodontic treatments.
