At Complete Care Dental located in Woodlyn, Pennsylvania, Dr. Dhillon and Dr. Woo offer Six Month Smiles® for our patients looking for smile solutions for crooked teeth. Most people are familiar with traditional metal braces and wearing clear aligners to align smiles, but Six Month Smiles is a great solution for patients who don’t necessarily need extensive orthodontia.
For example, what if you only want your front teeth aligned (also known as the “social six”)? If you simply have mild alignment issues in the front of your mouth, or have mild crowding or slight spacing issues between your teeth, then you are a potential candidate for the Six Month Smiles System.
So, what does Six Month Smiles entail? Essentially, it is a cosmetic braces system of short-term orthodontic treatment which uses clear brackets and tooth-colored wires worn over your teeth to straighten your smile. This means they are a discreet way to fix your smile. The average treatment time is six months, which is vastly different than wearing traditional braces for 18-30 months to treat comprehensive orthodontic issues. Best of all, Six Month Smiles use low force to move your teeth comfortably.
If you have a fairly normal bite, with small spaces or gaps to improve, and you are an adult or older teenager, Six Month Smiles may be just what you are looking for.
