BRACES CREATE A BEAUTIFUL SMILE IN SIX MONTHS
Six Month Smiles® is the best choice for adults interested in quickly and affordably making life-changing cosmetic improvements to their smiles. Six Month Smiles® is an orthodontic correction system that can straighten the front upper and lower teeth; in around six months (treatment times may vary depending on the patient’s dental health and how much straightening is required).
The brackets are clear on the Six Month Smiles® braces and the wires are tooth-colored. People may not even notice you are wearing braces, making it an ideal treatment choice for several orthodontic problems that can affect the cosmetic appearance of the teeth.
Patient comfort is also increased because the Six Month Smiles® system offers a combination of low-movement forces (to move the teeth) and a significantly shorter treatment time than traditional braces, making Six Month Smiles® braces the ideal choice for patients who want the cosmetic straightening benefits of braces, but do not have the need for bite corrections.
SIX MONTH SMILES® TREATMENTS
The Six Month Smiles® braces are the ideal short term treatment for a variety of orthodontic misalignment problems including extrusions, rotations, intrusions, and tipping.
The Six Month Smiles® braces are also ideal for orthodontic problems that cause issues with the front teeth like diastemas (space or gap between 2-teeth), overbites, open bites, and crowding.
THE SIX MONTH SMILES® PROCESS
Dr. Evans will perform a detailed examination of your jaw, teeth, gums, and overall oral health. Dr. Evans will also obtain X-rays, photographs, and impressions that will be used to determine whether or not Six Month Smiles® will work for you. If you are a candidate, Dr. Evans will work with the laboratory to calculate the precise tooth movement and bracket & wire placement to perfectly straighten your front teeth.
Your next visit with Dr. Evans will consist of the fitting of the clear brackets and tooth-colored wires. After fitting, the brackets will be fused, with bonding adhesive, to the tooth’s enamel surface. Brackets are placed in exactly the right position and a custom tray is inserted to hold them in place. Once the brackets are set, the tray is removed and the adhesive is hardened with a high-intensity curing light. Finally, the tooth-colored wires are attached and adjusted to fit.
Now that the Six Month Smiles® braces are in place, you will need to visit Dr. Evans every four weeks track your progress and make any needed adjustments.
