SIX MONTH SMILES®
Six Month Smiles®
Six Month Smiles is an orthodontic system in which we use invisible fixed braces to give you a beautiful smile in just six months! This system achieves quick results because it is focused on restoring your facial cosmetics by aligning only your front teeth which are visible when you smile or speak. Unlike traditional braces which use metallic brackets and wires, this orthodontic system uses clear braces and wires which do not affect your facial esthetics. Most people will not even notice that you’re wearing braces.
Benefits of Six Month Smiles®
Comfort and Convenience – The Six Month Smile system uses low forces to gently move teeth more comfortably than traditional braces. Hence, your fill feel considerable less pain and discomfort during your treatment.
Quick Results – Six month smiles focuses on your front teeth. Therefore, it requires lesser time to straighten your front teeth, rather than the whole dentition.
Excellent Aesthetics – The Six Month Smiles® braces are tooth-colored. We also use matching wires that make them almost invisible!
Fewer Dental Visits – in comparison to the traditional orthodontic treatment with metallic braces, treatment with the Six Month Smile® system requires fewer dentist visits. Depending on your case, you may need 3-7 adjustment visits during your treatment.
Six Month Smiles® Procedure
If you are found to be a suitable candidate for getting treated with this system, Dr. Rizvi will fix tooth-colored brackets on your teeth, and pass a clear orthodontic wire over them.
Six Month Smiles® uses a unique system to attach brackets to the teeth. We will make custom-made trays for you which will allow us to attach the brackets at the exact location where maximum tooth movement and efficiency can be achieved. Like the conventional braces, the wire will be attached to the brackets by using transparent ligatures. However, in case of Six Month Smiles®, we will use transparent ligatures which are not visible. Finally, the bonding between the brackets and the teeth will be hardened with the help of a visible LED light.
Within a month, you will start observing a positive change in your tooth alignment and facial esthetics. After about 6 months of wearing the braces, when you’re teeth have become perfectly aligned, we will remove the brackets and give you a fixed or removable retainer. Orthodontic retainers are used for preventing your teeth from moving back to their previous position.
