If you’ve been wanting to straighten your smile you’ve probably wondered about ways to do it faster than traditional braces. Especially for adult patients, braces aren’t an option! Waiting two years for a new smile can be just as bad as tolerating crooked teeth for the rest of your life – and it’s even worse for professionals who use their smiles every day!
At Overmeyer Family Dental we don’t want you to have to spend years getting a new smile. We don’t even think you should have to wait a year. We’re proud to be able to offer short term orthodontic treatment that combines the best of braces with the benefits of incredibly fast treatment: Six Month Smiles
Six Months? Impossible!
If it sounds too good to be true then it must be, right? Not in this case! Six Month Smiles was designed from the ground up to be a cosmetic solution. That means it focuses all the energy of moving your teeth on the spots where it matters: the ones that show when you smile!
When it comes to your smile there are six teeth in each arch that do all the work. If you’re not dealing with pain and discomfort from a misaligned bite then why add the trouble of two years of braces when you don’t need all the different things they’re made for? That’s the beauty of a cosmetic solution with Six Month Smiles: it works on the teeth you need it to work on, and it does so fast!
How Six Month Smiles Really Work
At first glance you might think that Six Month Smiles are no different than other kinds of orthodontic treatments, but that’s simply untrue. While the basic system is the same there are quite a few major differences that make Six Month Smiles a unique system that changes the way braces work!
For starters, the brackets and wires are designed to be as discreet as possible. They’re colored to match your teeth, making them practically invisible except under close inspection. If you’re worried about losing the respect of friends and colleagues because of braces you don’t need to worry about that with Six Month Smiles!
Another great feature is the way your brackets are applied: using special trays that come straight from the dental lab! These trays have the brackets pre-positioned so all we have to do is apply them to your teeth. They’re crafted from an impression we take before you start treatment, and by pre-positioning them you can be sure that your braces will be lined up for the most efficient treatment possible!
Six Month Smiles use the same basic forces as traditional braces, but with a complete focus on what can be done faster for cosmetic benefit. You might think that this would result in an uncomfortable treatment, but that’s not true either – Six Month Smiles were designed to use the most gentle force possible while still maximizing treatment time.
Is Six Month Smiles Right For You?
Because the Six Month Smiles system is designed to be cosmetic there are some patients that won’t be well suited to it. If you have severe correction needs or a misaligned bite then we’ll gladly recommend other orthodontic systems that might take a bit longer but will still give you amazing results.
We’ll determine your eligibility for Six Month Smiles during a no-obligation consultation appointment. We’ll meet with you, take full X-rays of your mouth, and determine the best treatment plan to suit your unique needs. Everyone’s mouth is different, so we’ll take that into account when we plan for your new look!
