Six Month Smiles clear braces are a great option to consider if you are preparing for a special event like a wedding or if you would just like a quick smile transformation. Using Six Month Smiles provided by the Cosmetic Dentist Manhattan Beach your goal can be reached in as little as six months. This accelerated orthodontics program allows most people to see results in four to nine months. The majority of patients see the desired results in only six months.
How is the Six Months Smiles treatment different from Invisalign?
Both provide discreet options for straightening teeth. The main difference is that the Six Month Smiles treatment uses clear wire and tooth-colored brackets to blend with your natural teeth. Invisalign aligners are made of clear plastic resin and are virtually invisible when worn. Many adults and teenage patients are comfortable with either of these options. But it really depends on the individual needs and desired goal of the treatment.
Why is Six Month Smiles Treatment finished more quickly than regular braces?
The reason that Six Month Smiles braces can achieve great results in such a short time is that we only treat the teeth that show when you smile. Your front teeth can be aligned more quickly than your back teeth. The treatment uses very light and safe forces to move teeth at the same rate as traditional braces. The teeth are not being moved faster, but the treatment is completed sooner.
Six Month Smiles braces placed by the Cosmetic Dentist Manhattan Beach do not have the goal of altering the bite of your back teeth, so the treatment stops once the front teeth are positioned in a cosmetically pleasing arrangement. Traditional braces take longer because there is an additional goal of perfecting the bite in your back teeth.
