SIX MONTH SMILES COSMETIC BRACES
Six Month Smiles® Is a Cosmetic Dentistry System Designed to Get You a Better Smile Faster, and Dr. Dori Columbus DDS Can Tell You If This Is a Good Orthodontic Option for You.
What is Six Month Smiles?
Six Month Smiles is an orthodontics service for adults who don’t want to wait up to two years to get a better smile using traditional braces or invisible aligners; and who don’t feel that porcelain veneers to hide crooked teeth are the right option.
Traditional braces still have their place in the practice of orthodontics, especially for patients with misaligned chewing surfaces at their back teeth, or pronounced over- or under- bite. Six Month Smiles braces are appropriate for correcting spaces, gaps, crooked, or crowded teeth. If the teeth that show in your smile aren't straight, Six Month Smiles may be the perfect solution for you.
How Does Six Month Smiles Work?
Six Month Smiles braces are very similar to conventional adult orthodontics - the mechanism of moving the teeth is the same. The difference between Six Month Smiles and conventional braces is the focus of the treatment. With Six Month Smiles, Dr. Dori will focus only on the teeth that show in your smile, with a goal to give you a smile you can be proud of in a reasonable amount of time.
Why Only the Front Teeth?
Most people have no trouble chewing. Their teeth function well, and their bites work fine. Six Month Smiles can be finished more quickly than traditional braces because the focus is not on changing your bite – it is only on changing your smile. Because of this, the vast majority of smiles can be transformed in just 6 months, some a little less, some occasionally taking as long as 9 months, which is still far less time that is would take to correct a whole mouthful of teeth problems.
Does Six Month Smiles Move Teeth Too Fast?
The Six Month Smiles cosmetic braces system uses very light and safe forces to move teeth, at the same rate as traditional braces. The teeth are not being moved faster – you are just completing treatment sooner, because only your front teeth are being moved.
If your bite and back teeth are in good shape but your smile is not as nice as you would like it to be, a Six Month Smiles cosmetic braces approach from Dr. Dori Columbus can result in a better smile… faster. Call Columbus Dental Care for a Six Month Smiles consultation, at 603.882.9955.
