Patients with crooked, uneven, or misaligned teeth often think their only option to perfect their smiles is to spend months or years with traditional metal bracket and wire braces. This discourages many patients, especially adults who want to maintain a professional image, from seeking the orthodontic services they need to achieve flawless smiles. At Dental Care Today of Richardson, we may be able to provide a faster, more cosmetic alternative using the Six Month Smiles. This orthodontic system uses clear and tooth colored brackets and wires to shift just the front teeth. That means patients have a smile that looks great in less time. Teens whose teeth are still developing and fusing with the jawbone and adults who have severe orthodontic alignment concerns are not good candidates for treatment using the Six Month Smiles system. However, adult patients whose smile is fully developed with minor bite position or tooth spacing concerns, are good candidates for bite alignment using the Six Month Smiles system. In just three to eight months on average, patients will be able to share a smile that looks flawless.
