Six Month Smiles Q & A


What is Six Month Smiles?

Six Month Smiles provides an attractive alternative to traditional orthodontic treatments like braces. It’s a revolutionary new way to straighten teeth. This treatment uses clear, plastic aligners that fit over your teeth to gradually align them over time.

You can easily remove the aligners for teeth cleaning and eating, but you want to wear them for at least 20 hours per day for optimal results. While you’re not eating or brushing your teeth, the Six Month Smiles aligners should remain in your mouth.

Is Six Month Smiles really better than braces?

 

Because Six Month Smiles is so comfortable and easy to use, it’s becoming a more and more popular way to straighten teeth, particularly with young adults. Six Month Smiles offers the following benefits over braces or other traditional orthodontic approaches:

  • Invisibility, so people never see a mouthful of metal, they see your real teeth
  • Comfort, so you don’t have to worry about your mouth getting cut up by pointy mental braces
  • Convenience, because when you need to floss, brush your teeth, or eat, you can just take out the aligners
  • Timing, since Six Month Smiles has been shown to work up to 50% faster than other orthodontic treatments

Am I a good candidate for Six Month Smiles?

Six Month Smiles can solve mild to moderate dental misalignments, like:

  • Overcrowded teeth
  • Spaces between teeth
  • Rotated teeth
  • Relapse after braces

Dr. Workman may recommend an alternative treatment if you have major orthodontic and alignment issues. Schedule an appointment to find out if Six Month Smiles is right for you.

What’s involved in Six Month Smiles treatment?

First, Dr. Workman examines your teeth to determine whether Six Month Smiles is right for you. To fully examine your teeth, she needs to either create a physical impression of them or digitally scan them into 3-D images. Dr. Workman uses these to develop a unique treatment plan for you.

Then Dr. Workman customizes clear, plastic aligners that fit your teeth. As you wear them, the aligners smoothly shift your teeth into perfect alignment. To keep your teeth moving in the right direction, she occasionally makes you new aligners. Until your smile is perfect, this process continues.

Is there a faster path to invisible teeth straightening?

Six Month Smiles® is an option for straightening the most visible teeth when you smile. It’s a short-term solution that can give you the smile you want, only faster.
