What is Six Month Smiles?
It is a system using clear brackets cemented to the teeth with tooth-colored memory wire that is fixed to the brackets by clear attachments. Since they are clear, and tooth colored the brackets are discreet Six-Month Smile makeovers are virtually invisible to people nearby. The average case takes just six months.
How does it work?
The teeth are guided by the gentle forces of the memory wire to a level well-aligned position which not only straightens the teeth but also restores a proper, dental arch. You can expect some mild, temporary discomfort for a few days after the brackets are placed and after each adjustment. You will see improvements every month. Most patients will need 3-7 adjustments depending on your specific needs.
