Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What do Six Month Smiles braces and wires look like?
A. Six Month Smiles braces and wires are barely noticable – they blend very well with the colour of your teeth. These are not metal braces!
Q. How can the Six Month Smiles system straighten teeth in only 6 months?
A. The Six Month Smiles system employs new and specific orthodontic technology that provides for safe, comfortable and efficient tooth movement. Additionally, the aim of the Six Month Smiles is to correct the items that you are unhappy with and not make time consuming changes to the way your back teeth bite together.
Q. Is the process uncomfortable?
A. Six Month Smiles involves light forces to gently move your teeth to their new position. The process is comfortable. The short treatment times are not achieved by using high forces on the teeth.
Q. Will I have to wear a retainer?
A. Yes, as with all orthodontic treatment, a retainer is necessary to maintain the straighter position of your teeth. If you don’t want to wear a removable retainer, you can have a bonded retainer placed behind your teeth. There are a variety of options that you can choose from according to your personal preference and situation.
Q. Can anyone use this system?
A. If you are an adult (15 years and older) with crooked or spaced teeth and you’re not looking for a major alteration to your bite, this is a fantastic option for you.
Q. Does everyone finish treatment in 6 months?
A. Six months is the average treatment time. Most patients finish right around six months, but treatment times may range from 4 to 9 months.
