How Six-Month Smiles Works

Six-Month Smiles was developed specifically to make it easier than ever for patients and dentists alike to fit a set of braces. After going through a certification process, a dentist can begin providing his or her patients with Six-Month Smiles orthodontics. The process includes taking a plaster model of the teeth of a patient before sending that model to Six-Month Smiles directly, where the model is examined and the positions of the braces are then determined. At that point, Six-Month Smiles sends the completed braces back to the dentist, who can then place the orthodontics on the patient’s teeth according to the detailed instructions created by skilled dental technicians, which come with the pre-fitted braces from the company.

The Effectiveness of Six-Month Smiles

In a large number of cases, Six-Month Smiles can be just as effective as traditional orthodontics that take longer to set and cost patients more. It can easily help teeth to align, especially the front teeth, and in cases of a patient’s teeth already biting properly – fitting together well when the patient closes his or her jaw – Six-Month Smiles is a highly effective technique and an excellent alternative to more traditional braces. With the reduced cost of a Six-Month Smiles treatment compared to traditional orthodontics, the system is cost-effective for patients as well. Additionally, Six-Month Smiles is more than just a brand name; the treatment can significantly improve the appearance of a patient’s smile in just half a year under optimal conditions.

While Six-Month smiles can and does work very well, in certain situations it may not be an appropriate choice for a patient’s teeth. In cases where a patient’s bite is too far out of place for the system to work effectively, it’s a better choice to have regular braces fitted by an orthodontist instead. Your dentist can help determine if you’re a strong candidate for Six-Month Smiles or not.
