How does Six Months Smiles differ from Invisalign?
Both Invisalign and Six Month Smiles provide you with a discreet option for correcting misaligned teeth. The main difference is that Six Month Smiles orthodontics used by the St. Paul Invisible Braces Dentist consist of clear wire and tooth-colored brackets that blend with your natural teeth. Invisalign aligners are made of clear plastic resin and are virtually invisible when worn. Many adults and teenage patients are comfortable with either of these options. But it really depends on the individual needs and desired goal of the treatment.
How is it possible for Six Month Smiles to work so quickly?
Six Month Smiles can straighten your teeth in such a short amount of time because the system does not work on correcting the bite in your back teeth like traditional braces do. Your front teeth (those that show when you smile) move at a faster rate than your back teeth, so treatment is finished once the front teeth are positioned in a cosmetically pleasing arrangement. The rate of movement is the same as with traditional braces, but the total treatment time is faster.
What do Six Month Smiles braces look like?
The Six Month Smiles treatment system works with clear wire and tooth-colored brackets that blend naturally with your teeth. Many adult and teenage patients choose Six Month Smiles orthodontics because they don’t have to wait for years while wearing shiny metallic braces that mar their appearance.
