Are You Embarrassed by Your Smile?
What is Six Month Braces, and why might it be the answer to your smile problems? Many patients come to our Charlotte dentist office wanting straight teeth and believe that they only have 3 choices:
- Do nothing and just live with their crooked teeth
- Go through 2-3 years of braces
- Have an expensive Smile Makeover done
The good news is that there is now another option: Six Month Braces! With practically invisible tooth-colored brackets and wires, and using only light forces, we can straighten your teeth faster than most people believe. Just look at what we can do in only 6 months!
Caroline is a Charlotte NC model and realtor; she knew the value of an attractive smile. With Six Month Braces, followed by 2 Porcelain Veneers made with our CEREC Same-Day Crown system, she now loves showing off her smile, whatever she is doing!
David and his (now) wife, Amanda actually put off their wedding so we could straighten his teeth and they could have wedding-day photos to love.
How Does Six Month Braces Work?
Six-Month Braces uses light forces, nearly invisible clear brackets, and space-age wires that naturally work to position the teeth right where they should be. It’s the same idea as regular braces, but with one important difference: we aren’t trying to fix your whole bite – just make sure you have a great smile.
Are There People This Won’t Work For?
Of course, there are patients who really SHOULD have comprehensive orthodontic treatment, which we also offer with Invisalign.
Patients who might not be good candidates for Six Month Braces may include:
- If you have any symptoms of TMD, or jaw problems, such as muscle pain, joint pain, frequent headaches. Braces might help or make it worse.
- If there’s a big difference in the size of your upper and lower jaws.
- Patients who just don’t have attractive teeth. Sometimes even a straight smile doesn’t look good if the teeth are too small, too big, or badly stained. In this case, porcelain veneers may be a better option.
Is Six Month Braces a New Thing? Is it Safe?
Short-term braces has been around forever, but it wasn’t until space-age wires and almost invisible brackets made it predictably easy to do. We do a proper diagnosis to make sure you’re a good candidate, and all the techniques we use are the same exact ones used by orthodontists in regular braces, too.
How Clear Are Six Month Braces, Really?
Take a look at Giovanna; she has braces on both the top and bottom teeth with the wires in place. And no fuzzy pictures that you can’t even tell – I ENHANCED and SHARPENED her smile in Photoshop to make it even crisper and clearer, but it’s STILL hard to see those braces!
Below is Phaedra, another of our recent “graduates” of 6MonthSmiles. She says she’s not very photogenic (yeah, right!), but I think you’ll agree that her After Smile is just as beautiful as she is.
