Straight teeth in a short time

Posted October 09, 2013 in Advice Column, Clive, West Des Moines

Are you one of the many adults in need of adult braces who are unhappy, self-conscious or even embarrassed by your smile?

Many adults spend their entire lives covering their mouths when they laugh, smile or talk. They feel stuck because they do not want to wear adult metal braces for years or they are concerned that other corrective teeth straightening procedures could be too invasive or too expensive. Now there is an effective, safe and affordable cosmetic braces solution that fits your lifestyle.

A revolutionary combination of proven orthodontic techniques, modern materials and innovative thought, Six Month Smiles® utilizes specialized clear braces to gently straighten and align teeth in an average time of just six months. A new, but very popular term that is floating around Des Moines is Six Month Smiles. But what exactly is Six Month Smiles? Is it where you smile for six months or something else?

Six Month Smiles is a system for straightening teeth for adults that is mainly for cosmetic purposes, rather than comprehensive orthodontics. People with crooked or overlapped teeth, spaces between teeth or crowding can be candidates for six Month Smiles. The tooth-colored wires and brackets are virtually invisible, and most patients say that they are hardly noticeable at all. The main things that Six Month Smiles patients like are the shorter time in their braces, the esthetic look of the clear brackets and tooth-colored wires and the lower cost to finish their teeth straightening.

This is a system that is for adults who want a faster result that is compatible with their lifestyle. It is very conservative and economical. It is easy to start with treatment  as well. A patient has an complimentary initial consultation visit to determine if he or she is a candidate for Six Month Smiles.  If, after a consultation visit, it is decided it is a good option, there are a few simple next steps. The dentist will gather information and determine the course of treatment that is compatible with the patient’s objectives. Yes, it is braces, but with this cosmetic option, it will not take a long time to reach the beautiful smile you have always wanted.
