Five Benefits to Six Month Smiles

Want to fix your crooked teeth, but aren’t excited about wearing conspicuous metal braces as an adult? If you’ve worn braces before and the misalignment is due to an orthodontic relapse, or if the teeth in question only suffer from minor misalignment, then you might be in luck. With innovative Six Month Smiles, the adult alternative to traditional orthodontics, you can improve your crooked smile’s appearance in significantly less time.

1. Faster Treatment than Braces

As the name suggests, treatment typically only lasts about six months, compared to the usual 1-3 years that conventional braces need. Six Month Smiles focus on the most visible aspects of your smile, requiring less time and less complex treatment.

2. Discreet Brackets and Wires

Everything about Six Month Smiles is designed for maximum discretion and comfort, including the color of the brackets and wires. Instead of metal, they’re colored to match and blend in with your teeth, making the brackets and wires virtually indistinguishable from a respectable distance.

3. Gentler Force for More Comfort

Original braces are designed to move your teeth’s entire structures, including their roots, which requires a considerable amount of time for the jawbone around the roots to reform. Since they focus on esthetics, Six Month Smiles provide gentler force for tooth movement, which minimizes discomfort.

4. Improved Overall Confidence

With a quicker, more discreet, and more efficient method, you may be more likely to consider orthodontic treatment to straighten your crooked teeth, which itself comes with a host of benefits. A straighter smile will significantly improve your confidence, and as you show your smile more often, you’ll find that your interactions with others may become a lot more enjoyable.

5. Better Hygiene

Straight teeth look good, but they’re also easier to keep clean. Your toothbrush and floss are more effective when you’re working them across a smooth, even plane of teeth. Misalignment also creates harder-to-reach spots and corners for harmful dental plaque to hide, increasing your risk of developing cavities and gum disease.
