The Six Months Smiles program is designed for adults or youth over age sixteen who are struggling with crooked or misaligned teeth. This program takes an average of six months to straighten and improve your smile!
As an added bonus, the Six Month Smiles program is generally less expensive than more traditional braces. Feel free to talk to us in our office about the exact cost of treatment based on your specific situation.
How does the program work?
After carefully assessing your teeth, Dr. Dickens will determine whether or not you are a candidate for Six Month Smiles. If you are a candidate, your next appointment will mean coming back to the office to be fitted for these subtle braces.
These braces are made with transparent and white materials, meaning they aren’t immediately obvious to the people around you. These clear braces will immediately get to work shifting your teeth and are typically removed somewhere in the range of four to nine months.
Six months is the average length of time, but your doctor should be able to give you a more exact estimate. This means that straight teeth may be yours within a year!
Will the braces hurt?
No! There might be some slight discomfort at first as you become familiar with the adjustment sensations, but you should not experience anything beyond that. The pressure you feel on your teeth means the process is working!
Will I need a retainer after the six months are over?
Yes. We recommend wearing a retainer after your treatment is over in order to keep your straight teeth secured in their new positions. We don’t want your teeth shifting back to the way they were before treatment began.
Braces of all sorts are often seen on adolescents, but there are many adults who want straight teeth. Six Month Smiles are not just for teens, though. This is also an adult orthodontics option for patients who want a straighter smile without the embarrassment of bulky metal!
