Traditional metal braces move all of the teeth in your mouth gradually over time. It is not uncommon for traditional orthodontic treatment to take two years or more. Six Month Smiles provides the cosmetic results of traditional braces in as little as six months. Some patients wear them for four months, others for nine, but the average treatment length is six months.
As an adult, you may be avoiding orthodontic treatment because of the appearance of unsightly metal braces. Six Month Smiles uses the same brackets and wires as traditional braces, but these braces are tooth-colored. Although people will be able to see the braces up close, they attract much less attention and are not visible at a distance.
If you want the cosmetic results of orthodontics without the unsightly metal, they may be the answer for you.
