Six Month Smiles is an advanced orthodontic treatment that uses clear aligners or tooth-colored braces to quickly correct minor issues with your tooth alignment. If you have a healthy mouth, but you suffer from cosmetic orthodontic issues like crooked or crowded teeth, gaps in your smile, or uneven teeth, Six Month Smiles may be right for you.
Depending on your particular needs and preferences, you may choose to be treated with braces or with aligners. Dr. Tom Nguyen will discuss your options with you, and help you choose the right treatment for your needs.
The process will begin with a consultation at Willow Creek Smiles. If Dr. Tom Nguyen approves you for treatment, he will take impressions and images of your teeth. Then, he will work with Six Month Smiles to develop your treatment plan.
You’ll come back to our office to have your tooth-colored braces attached and adjusted, or to get your first set of aligners from Six Month Smiles. Then, you’ll just need to follow Dr. Nguyen’s instructions for treatment and come back every few weeks for a check-up. We’ll adjust your braces or give you a new set of aligners, and check on your progress.
After about 6 months, your treatment will be done, and you’ll have a bright, straight smile that you can feel proud of.
Six Month Smiles is fast because it primarily focuses on repositioning the front teeth, rather than all of your teeth. It is not meant as a replacement for orthodontic treatments like Invisalign or traditional braces.
Instead, Six Month Smiles is meant for dental patients who have healthy mouths and a good jaw/bite alignment, but are suffering from cosmetic teeth positioning issues, such as crooked or gapped front teeth. Because Six Month Smiles focuses exclusively on these problems, it can achieve results much faster than comparable orthodontic treatments.
This depends on your oral health and the extent of your orthodontic problems. Six Month Smiles is not appropriate for patients who have moderate-to-severe orthodontic issues. If you have very crooked teeth, large gaps between your smile, or a misaligned bite, an alternative treatment like Invisalign or braces may be right for you.
