Do you suffer from crooked teeth? Maybe you’ve been putting off getting braces due to their appearance or how long you have to wear them. If so, you could be a perfect candidate for our Six Month Smile treatment. This innovative treatment is quicker, more discreet, and more affordable than traditional braces.
What are Six Month Smiles?
Getting a beautiful smile doesn’t have to be a long, painful process. Six Month Smiles are braces that only need to be worn for an average of six months. They consist of tooth-colored wires and clear brackets, making them almost invisible to those around you.
Not only are Six Month Smiles discreet, they’re typically less expensive than other straightening options such as traditional braces or clear aligners.
Who’s a Candidate for Six Month Smiles?
Like regular l braces, Six Month Smiles provides patients with straight teeth while boosting your confidence. They’re a great option for people who want to avoid the embarrassment of unattractive metal braces.
Dr. Choe recommends this treatment for those whose teeth are crooked, misaligned, or gapped. If you have an overbite or underbite, it’s best to have Dr. Choe evaluate your teeth to make sure you’re a candidate for Six Month Smiles.
While people of all ages deserve to have their teeth adjusted as quickly as possible, we currently only offer this treatment for patients 16 years of age and older. If your child is under 16 and in need of braces, we’ll suggest an alternative treatment.
The Six Month Smile Process
The first step in achieving your new smile is scheduling your initial consultation with Dr. Choe. When you arrive at our office, we’ll take digital images of your teeth to determine your treatment plan. That way, we’ll know what size to make the wires and brackets and where they should be placed.
Placing Your Six Month Smile
During your next appointment, your clear braces will be placed directly onto your teeth using a special dental adhesive. Before doing this, however, we’ll clean your teeth and make sure you’re completely comfortable.
While you may experience soreness after receiving your braces, most patients find this to be a pain-free process.
Wearing Your Braces
Once you start wearing your braces, you’ll quickly adjust to them and you’ll eventually feel as if you’re not even wearing them at all. After about a month, you’ll start noticing your teeth shifting and becoming straighter.
Visiting Dr. Choe for Check-ups
During the Six Month Smile process, you’ll visit our office a few times so Dr. Choe can evaluate your progress and adjust your braces as necessary. The number of check-ups required is different for each patient, but you may need to have your braces adjusted anywhere from three to seven times.
