Greetings Marrero! Welcome back to the ongoing dental health blog of Lapalco Family Dental! In our last post, we told you about ClearCorrect. ClearCorrect is a special type of short-term adult orthodontics which correct issues with your smile by using a series of transparent aligners. Although ClearCorrect is a truly marvelous technology, it is not the only type of adult orthodontics we offer in our comfortable and modern office.
We also offer the Six Month Smiles system of accelerated, short-term adult orthodontics. Maybe you’ve considered adult braces in the past. You may have a gap between your teeth that’s simply driving you crazy. Maybe you have crooked teeth that you’d like to have straightened. Maybe your teeth are just too crowded up-front in your smile zone.
If any of these issues sound like you, or if you’ve ever been told that you were a candidate for adult braces, then Six Month Smiles could work for you. Many patients have come to us and told us they can afford the time and expense associated with adult braces. Traditional adult braces generally take about two years to work; a year to move the roots, a year to move the crowns of your teeth.
But Six Month Smiles eliminates the need to be in braces for two years. With Six Month Smiles, most patients only have to be in braces for about six to eight months. That’s only a quarter of the time commitment associated with traditional adult braces! That also means you can save the money costs which come from two plus years of orthodontist appointments.
Six Month Smiles is also designed to be discreet. Six Month Smiles uses Lucid-Lok brackets which are transparent and barely noticeable in your smile. These brackets are paired with special tooth-colored wires to match the appearance of your natural teeth. Patients have often told us that they don’t feel self-conscious wearing Six Month Smiles braces because no one even notices that they’re in them!
Does all of this sound too good to be true? It’s not. Traditional braces are designed to realign all of your teeth. Six Month Smiles is designed to only realign the teeth which are causing issues with your smile. That cuts down on your treatment time and helps you have a beautiful smile. Six Month Smiles is an excellent choice because it’s affordable; Six Month Smiles generally costs less than veneers, aligner therapy, or traditional braces.
Six Month Smiles is a cosmetic braces system. It is intended to fix issues in your smile-zone, that is the teeth which are visible when you smile. Six Month Smiles can close gaps between teeth, straighten teeth which are crooked, and straighten misaligned teeth. Six Month Smiles is not intended as a traditional orthodontic solution, it may not work for you if you have issues with your bite. We happy to help you determine if Six Month Smiles is right for you or if you need another solution for straightening your teeth.
