Adult braces are more common than ever these days, but chances are good you haven’t noticed anyone wearing them. Look harder. As options in orthodontics improve, adults and image-conscious teens can enjoy properly-aligned teeth without wearing metal brackets and wires for two years. The team at Curtis Family Dentistry offers six month braces in Trumbull. Six Month Smiles is a discreet method of straightening the teeth that is completed in less than half the time of traditional braces. Are you suited for the treatment? Let’s find out.
How Six Month Smiles Works
Cosmetic braces focus on moving the teeth that show when you smile, or those we sometimes call the social six. These are the teeth that say the most about you — and making quick improvements in the smile zone works wonders for your overall appearance. Six Month Smiles can close gaps, improve crowding, and realign off-center teeth. And because it focuses on minor improvements for a big impact, Six Month Smiles is more comfortable than traditional orthodontic treatment.
What’s the secret to Six Month Smiles’ near-invisibility? Clear or tooth-colored braces and wires. The hardware we use in these cosmetic braces blends well with your surrounding tooth enamel. And when they are placed on the backs of the teeth, what we call lingual braces, they are invisible to the casual observer.
Because Six Month Smiles concentrates on making cosmetic improvements to the teeth, patients with severe misalignments or whose orthodontic issues present problems with speech or eating will benefit most from traditional braces.
Candidates for Six Month Smiles
Are you wondering if Six Month Smiles is the best option for your smile? It’s the quick, discreet, comfortable, and affordable alternative to metal braces. Schedule an appointment at Curtis Family Dentistry to discuss your orthodontic treatment. People who wish to make cosmetic improvements to their smile rather than significant realignments are typically good candidates for the treatment. Many of our patients undergoing Six Month Smiles are those who had braces as a teenager, but whose front teeth have drifted out of alignment since.
You should be in good oral and dental health before any orthodontic treatment. First, you’ll undergo a checkup and cleaning at Curtis Family Dentistry. We will repair or heal spots of decay or cases of gum disease before beginning with braces. Once your teeth are as healthy as can be, we can focus on making them look beautiful, too.
The Need for Orthodontics
Maybe you feel like going through with cosmetic orthodontics isn’t all that necessary as an adult. But when your teeth line up the way they should, you feel better about them — and the benefits of a confident, beautiful smile are significant. Additionally, well-aligned teeth are easier to clean, meaning your dental health could improve as a result of your orthodontic treatment. Straightening your teeth is about more than just looking better.
At Curtis Family Dentistry, we want all of our patients to enjoy healthy, beautiful teeth. Let’s discuss your treatment with Six Month Smiles! Contact us to schedule an appointment today.
