Farmington Hills Cosmetic Dentist Answers Six Months Smiles FAQs

What is Six Months Smiles?

Six Months Smiles is a cosmetic orthodontic treatment that employs clear plastic trays to gently straighten your teeth. As the name implies, total procedure usually takes about six months or less, as opposed to a few years with traditional metal braces.

How does Six Months Smiles work so quickly?

Six Months Smiles is different from traditional metal brackets because this cosmetic orthodontic treatment focuses on the teeth that show when you smile. Adjusting all of your teeth for correct bite alignment can take much longer than just the front teeth.

Is Six Months Smiles comfortable?

Six Months Smiles is more comfortable than traditional braces because this orthodontic treatment does not involve bulky wires or brackets. In addition, the aligners gently move your teeth into position over time. There is no painful tweaking or tightening of metal brackets involved.

Who is a candidate for Six Months Smiles?

Ideal candidates are adults or teens over 15 years old who want straighter front teeth. Cosmetic enhancement is the main goal of Six Months Smiles, as opposed to bite alignment. Six Months Smiles is a great option for adults with crooked, overlapped, or disproportionately spaced front teeth. The image conscious adult or teen will love that Six Months Smiles are discrete, quick, and comfortable.

Will I have to where a retainer after my Six Months Smiles treatment?

Yes, retainers are necessary to maintain the ideal alignment you have worked for with orthodontic treatment. Our Farmington Hills dentist can help you choose the retainer option that is right for you from removable appliances to bonded retainers.
