Six Month Smiles
Six Month Smiles is a modern twist on tried-and-true orthodontics. There is little debate within the orthodontic community that braces are the most widely used and most effective method to give patients straight, healthy teeth and a beautiful smile. Six Month Smiles has taken the best aspects of braces and modified the treatment and the materials to give adults a common-sense, cosmetic solution that fits your lifestyle. Here is what makes Six Month Smiles so innovative:
- Average treatment times of only six months
- Six Month Smiles Lucid-Lok clear brackets and tooth-colored wires are barely visible
- Use of braces has shown to provide the most conservative and predictable final result
- Six Month Smiles Patient Tray Kits™ ensure that your appointments are fast and comfortable
- Low forces and short overall treatment times increase comfort, safety, and hygiene
- Six Month Smiles is typically less expensive than traditional braces, aligner therapy, or veneers
How does 6-Month Smiles work then? The 6 Month Smile focuses only on the teeth that show when you smile and doesn’t attempt to make significant changes to your bite. So it can create a big cosmetic impression while only making small adjustments to your teeth.
Six Month Smiles
What does the 6-Month Smiles treatment involve? As ever, it starts with a visit to your dentist. You’ll need to get your teeth thoroughly checked, with X-rays and photographs, so you can then have a conversation with Dr. Richardt about how your teeth could look and how much improvement could be made. Based on this consultation, Dr. Richardt will decide whether the 6-Month Smile program is right for you, or whether you need a different sort of technique or treatment.
The next step is fitting the braces, which are tooth-colored and therefore barely noticeable. If required, space needed to relieve crowding is obtained by polishing between the teeth. In some severe cases, it may be necessary to remove a tooth to create sufficient space.
See below for before and after photos and a testimonial from a Patient that undertook the six month Smile program.
My name is Joe and I highly recommend Six Month Smile to anyone who is interested in improving their smile. First things first, it is not painful! This was one of my biggest fears and once they were on I was very happy with the way that they felt. I was also very surprised about how fast I started to observe results of my teeth straightening. Before I was reserved in the way that I would smile. Today I smile bigger than ever and with confidence. Dr. Richardt did a wonderful job throughout the entire process and I trust him due to his workmanship and professionalism. If you are interested in having this procedure done the please take my word for it, it is worth it and you will not be sorry that you did. And a sincere thanks to Dr. Richardt and his wonderful staff for giving me the confidence to smile bigger than ever.
