When you think of straightening crooked teeth, the image that likely comes to mind is years of metal brackets, pokey wires and lots of visits to your dentist or orthodontist — but advances in orthodontics are changing everything. If beautiful straight teeth are your goal, you may not have to wait for years to achieve the smile of your dreams.

Six Month Smiles is an orthodontic method for straightening both your front upper and lower teeth in, you guessed it, only six months. Plus, this treatment option is barely noticeable, utilizing brackets that are clear and discreet as well as wires that blend with the color of your teeth.

You can look forward to a more comfortable teeth straightening experience that allows for a higher level of oral hygiene. If you'd like the benefits of braces and don't have complex corrections to your bite, then Six Month Smiles may be the perfect option for you.

How Six Month Smiles Helps Straighten Your Teeth

So, how is Six Month Smiles able to give you a beautiful smile in just six months when it used to take two years? Dr. Vartikar and the Nirvana Dental team take precise impressions, photographs and X-rays of your bite. These are used to create an extremely accurate model of your teeth. This model is then utilized to calculate the precise movements that need to take place to adjust and straighten your teeth. This allows Dr. Vartikar to determine where to place the brackets and wires on your teeth for optimal effectiveness.

The brackets are fused to your teeth using bonding adhesive, much like traditional braces. However, to ensure they're placed precisely where they need to go, Dr. Vartikar uses a custom-fabricated tray with the brackets exactly positioned inside. Once the brackets are set, the tray is removed, and the dentist is able to insert the tooth-colored archwires to ensure your teeth move appropriately.

Although the treatment may last slightly longer than six months depending on individual misalignment issues, low movement forces will shift your teeth where they need to go. You must return to Nirvana Dental every four to five weeks for adjustment and tightening of the wires, but these appointments shouldn't last long. In about six months, you'll have the brackets and wires removed, and you can enjoy the smile you've always wanted.

Six Month Smiles vs. Traditional Braces

There are many advantages you'll get to enjoy if your qualify for Six Month Smiles as opposed to traditional braces:

  • Fast and Effective Treatment: Because of the precise placement of the brackets, Six Month Smiles is able to move teeth more effectively, allowing for reduced treatment times.

  • Discreet: The clear plastic brackets and tooth-colored wires are camouflaged against your teeth, so most people won't notice your appliances no matter how far they are from you.

  • Affordable: Although price depends upon a few different factors, Six Month Smiles tend to be more affordable than regular braces.
