Frequently Asked Questions About Six Month Smiles
Question: Does it really only take six months?
Answer: Yes, Six Month Smiles uses the latest dental techniques and technology to move your teeth quickly and safely. The key components of the treatment are the use of special teeth colored nickel titanium wires and a primary focus of moving the teeth that show when you smile.
Question: I want to get my teeth fixed, but I’m embarrassed about wearing wires and metal brackets to work. How much do they show?
Answer: Six Month Smile braces are tooth-colored and are barely visible. The wires are also tooth-colored. Six Month Smiles is nothing like metal braces. Look at the photograph on the right- this young lady has Six Month Smile braces on her teeth right now- they are barely noticeable.
Question: Are Six Month Smiles uncomfortable, like regular braces?
