How Does the Six Month Smile System Work?
When most people think of braces, they picture large metal brackets and wires attached to the surfaces of their teeth. This perception can deter many people from seeking the cosmetic dental treatment that they need in order to have a straight, healthy smile. The Six Month Smile System is a revolutionary way for adult dental patients to enhance the appearance of their teeth in a discreet, timely manner.
Straightens Teeth with Clear Brackets
During a patient’s first consultation, his or her dentist will take a series of X-rays and photographs to determine how the Six Month Smile System can align the patient’s teeth. At the next appointment, the dentist will secure a series of small, clear Lucid-Lok brackets to the surface of each tooth. These brackets are then connected through a tooth-colored Chameleon wire. Both the brackets and the wire are designed to be inconspicuous when a patient wears them.
Reduces Overall Treatment Time
While traditional metal braces are normally worn for two to three years, the Six Month Smile System uses the latest technology to safely move a patient’s teeth in as little as six months. This technology enhances a patient’s smile by focusing on the teeth that are most visible when the patient smiles or talks. Because the treatment time is relatively short, the Six Month Smile System generally costs less than traditional braces or other aligner therapies.
Causes Minimal Discomfort
Even though the Six Month Smile System moves teeth faster than other alignment treatments, it doesn’t cause the patient to experience any additional pain or discomfort. In fact, the system uses low force to adjust a patient’s teeth and bite. Like any other alignment system, Six Month Smile may cause some mild discomfort at the beginning of treatment.
