No matter what your age is, having a smile that brings down your confidence can have a drastic impact on your everyday mood. Before recently, the only option to straighten out crowded and misaligned front teeth has been traditional metal braces. With the latest advancements in dental techniques, there’s now a less noticeable, faster, and easier solution called Six Month Smiles. If you would like to learn how to improve the appearance of your grin to boost your self-esteem, be sure to contact our office today to schedule a consultation.
During your initial consultation for orthodontic treatment, Dr. Omar Fetouh, your dentist in White Settlement, will examine your teeth and facial structure and let you know whether you can benefit from a more discreet solution such as Six Month Smiles. Even though this treatment uses the same strategy and similar appliances to shift teeth into their ideal position as traditional metal braces, it offers a variety of unique benefits that make it preferable to traditional metal brackets and wires. Some of these advantages include:
It’s important to note that more severe and complex orthodontic issues can’t always be addressed using Six Month Smiles. This specific treatment is a great option for patients who are looking to correct the appearance of visible front teeth. During your consultation, Dr. Fetouh will discuss any potential limitations of the treatment and whether it can help you meet your smile goals. Six Month Smiles can help fix some of the following orthodontic issues:
After you decide that Six Month Smiles is the right choice for you, we’ll begin the process by capturing images and impressions of your mouth and developing a customized treatment plan. This will include details such as the cost of your procedure and how long it will take until you’ll be able to achieve beautiful results. Once we’ve collected this information, we’ll send it off to our Six Month Smiles lab, where they’ll craft your discreet brackets and wires that we’ll apply to your mouth to straighten your visible teeth.
Once we’ve placed the braces, you’ll need to visit our office every few weeks so we can make minor adjustments and conduct a quick progress check. As your teeth begin to move, the brackets and wires will become looser, and we’ll need to readjust them to ensure that they continue to effectively shift your teeth into their ideal positions.
