You hide your smile and cover your teeth when you talk? All because you have crooked teeth or a gap between your teeth? You thought about orthodontic therapy but you are worried about that "metal smile" you might have to have for 2 to 3 years? We have just the right solution for you... Six Month Smiles, a system of aesthetic orthodontic therapy of front teeth for adults, which is extremely popular in the UK and America, has as of late been available in Croatia, too.
Six Months Smiles is a revolutionary patented system for straightening crooked front teeth (teeth which are visible when a person smiles or talks) in only 6 months by using aesthetic transparent braces in the colour of the teeth.
Advantages of Six Month Smiles
- Average duration of the therapy is, as the name says, only 6 months. The therapy can last between 4 and 9 months, depending on the severity of the case, but in most patients a perfect smile is achieved after only 6 months of therapy.
- Aesthetic Six Month Smiles Lucid-Lok™ clear orthodontic brackets and nickel-titanium wires in the colour of the teeth.
- Conservative, predictable and least invasive option for obtaining straight teeth in comparison with other options (veneers, crowns etc.).
- Custom-made brackets for getting the best results.
- Milder forces and shorter therapy time make this system more comfortable. This also reduces the possibility of developing caries during therapy.
What makes Six Month Smiles therapy different from conventional orthodontic therapy?
The Six Month Smiles therapy uses a combination of barely visible aesthetic tooth-coloured wires and Six Month Smiles Lucid-Lok™ clear brackets for gentle straightening of your teeth.
Average duration of the therapy is, as the name says, only 6 months. The therapy can last between 4 and 9 months, depending on the severity of the case, but in most patients a perfect smile is achieved after only 6 months of therapy, while a conventional orthodontic therapy lasts 2 to 3 years.
How does Six Month Smiles therapy achieve such a fast result?
In consultations with you we concentrate on identifying the teeth which are visible during laughing and talking. By moving only the front teeth (which have only one root), without affecting the entire chewing system, it is possible to reduce the necessary therapy time. This means that by moving only several teeth and making small adjustments it is possible to achieve spectacular aesthetic results.
Can I get a perfect smile with the Six Month Smiles therapy?
To get an answer to this question it would be best if you scheduled your free appointment and consultations with the 6 Month Smiles licenced dentist in our office.
Is wearing Six Month Smiles braces uncomfortable?
Wearing all types of orthodontic braces, aligners or splints requires a certain period of adjustment. In the beginning you can feel mild discomfort accompanied by an increased production of saliva. These symptoms usually subside within a few days. Since Six Month Smiles system applies milder forces on the teeth, the sensation is much more comfortable than with conventional orthodontic therapy.
Will my teeth remain straight after the therapy?
To keep the teeth in a wanted position, after every type of orthodontic therapy, including the 6 Month Smiles therapy, it is recommended to wear a retainer. Fixed retainer is placed on the back surface of front teeth, it is not visible during laughing or talking, and thanks to its special shape and smoothness it does not hinder speech or chewing. Apart from fixed, there is also mobile retainer which is worn at night 3 to 5 times a week.
What is the procedure of making Six Month Smiles braces?
During your first free appointment and consultations we will analyse your smile and determine what makes you unhappy and what would you like to change.
During the next visit we will take an impression of your teeth and send it to a laboratory where Six Month Smiles experts will make individual brackets for you.
After fitting the braces, regular check-ups are done once a month until the end of treatment.
