Many patients would love to improve minor dental misalignment, but feel that the timeline for traditional braces is daunting. In cases like this, Six Month Smiles®, a unique straightening method, may be just what you are looking for. With Six Month Smiles®, you can achieve the smile of your dreams on an accelerated timeline. Our doctors⏤Dr. Mark Harper, Dr. Clint Buchanan, Dr. Mike Farrar, and Dr. Brandon Scott⏤can meet with you to determine your candidacy for this innovative cosmetic solution. For your convenience, we have offices in Germantown, Trenton, and Jackson, TN.
Six Month Smiles® was specially created for a specific type of orthodontia patient. It provides targeted treatment for cosmetic misalignments, focusing on the front teeth that are visible when you smile. Six Month Smiles® is not for patients who have a functional bite problem or require very complex corrections. However, this short-term method is very effective for many cosmetic flaws, including:
With an average treatment time of six months, there is no other orthodontic method that provides faster results. In addition, Six Month Smiles® offers discreet treatment, with clear brackets and tooth-colored wires. This method is not nearly as noticeable as traditional metal braces, and Six Month Smiles® braces, which use low-force movement, are generally more comfortable than traditional orthodontia.
In your initial cosmetic dentistry consultation, your Elite Dental Care dentist will evaluate your bite and smile to determine your candidacy for Six Month Smiles®. During this consultation, your dentist will be able to provide you with an estimated treatment timeline. Treatment may be completed in as little as four months and will require no longer than nine months. In some cases, another orthodontic method such as Invisalign® may be recommended to treat complex malocclusion.
To begin Six Month Smiles® treatment, we create a precise mold of your teeth that will be used to fabricate your custom brackets in a specialized lab. At the next appointment, your braces are bonded to your teeth and the wires placed to exact specifications to ensure optimal results.
The wires will be tightened every four to five weeks to ensure continued alignment until your goal is achieved. As with any orthodontia, some soreness is to be expected after the wires are tightened, but discomfort is generally manageable with over-the-counter medication.
Six Month Smiles® provides targeted treatment for cosmetic misalignments, focusing on the front teeth that are visible when you smile.
You will begin to see results very quickly as your teeth move steadily into symmetrical alignment. When it is time to remove the braces, your mirror will reveal exciting results: a new, more attractive smile with straight, evenly spaced teeth. Many of our Six Month Smiles® patients are inspired to pursue a total smile makeover, adding professional whitening for a dazzling transformation.
