Saint Paul Invisalign Dentist Reviews the Cosmetic Strategies Behind Invisalign and Six Month Smiles

Written by Drs. Mark and Rachel Malterud on Mar 10, 2015

Let’s begin with Invisalign. Invisalign is a treatment system that moves the patient’s natural teeth using a series of clear plastic aligners. As a patient, you will wear each aligner for 2-4 weeks. Then, you will transfer to a new aligner, which will move your teeth a little closer to your dream smile. You will continue this process until your teeth are in their ideal positions.

People love Invisalign because:

The aligners are clear, so this treatment is discreet

The aligners are completely removable, so you can clean your teeth normally

Invisalign does not use any metal—the aligners are comfortable and clear!

Six Month Smiles, on the other hand, utilizes brackets and wires to straighten teeth in a very short amount of time. Six Month Smiles focuses on moving those of your teeth that are most visible, and most important to the overall appearance of your smile.

Patients choose Six Month Smiles because:

This treatment can perfect your smile in a short period of time—the average treatment time is just six months!

Six Month Smiles does offer clear brackets, so that your smile will still look great during treatment

Six Month Smiles is much more affordable than other orthodontic options
