What Six Month Smiles Can Do for You

If your teeth are misaligned you may feel self-conscious about smiling or speaking, even around close friends and family members. Crooked teeth can also affect your oral health by causing teeth grinding, excessive wear, and TMJ disorders. Six Month Smiles offer a quick and affordable way to correct misaligned teeth and give you a confident smile. Dr. Nicholas Booker is a cosmetic dentist at Booker Family Dentistry in Trenton, MI. He is happy to discuss Six Month Smiles and if they are the right option for you.

What are Six Month Smiles?

Six Month Smiles have taken traditional braces and made them work faster and look better. They use brackets and wires to apply gentle pressure for tooth realignment just like traditional braces, but the devices match the color of your teeth, so they are less visible and you don’t have to feel embarrassed about wearing them.

The Benefits of Six Month Smiles

Trenton dental patients have found the following benefits from using Six Month Smiles as an alternative to traditional dental braces:

  • Quick treatment: realignment with traditional braces can take between twelve months and two years. However, if Six Month Smiles are a good fit for your needs, as their name suggests, they take only six months to align your teeth. So, you have a great smile sooner.
  • Suitable for all ages: Because of their discreet look, Six Month Smiles are popular with adult dental patients, but they can also be used by teens.
  • Money-saving: Because less time is involved in your treatment with Six Month Smiles, you have fewer dental visits. This saves you time and money.
  • A customized service: Six Month Smiles are designed just for you with a focus on patient comfort. Braces are designed with lighter and more flexible materials than traditional braces so comfort and ease are enhanced.

Find out how you could straighten your teeth in just half a year!

Ever thought to yourself, “I really want to fix my crooked or gapping smile, but wearing braces for years just seems like too much of a Six Month Smileshassle”? If so, you aren’t alone in these sentiments. You would be surprised how many people decide not to get braces because of the time commitment. But what if our Trenton, MI dentist, Dr. Nicholas Booker, told you that you could get the ideal smile in about six months?

This is no joke! The aptly named Six Month Smiles boasts results in just six months. And don’t worry about needing to wear those embarrassing metal brackets and wires in order to get the results you want. Six Month Smiles also offers tooth-colored wires and clear brackets to help get the same results you would get with metal braces in less time.

Common issues that Six Month Smiles can address include:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Misalignments
  • Crowding

Six Month Smiles also offers fewer visits to our Trenton dental office (usually one visit a month is all that’s needed) and are more convenient for those with active social or working lives who don’t want colleagues or classmates to notice their braces before they notice them.

Am I a good candidate for Six Month Smiles?

If you feel embarrassed by crooked or a misaligned smile but hate the idea of wearing traditional metal braces, you may be able to benefit from what Six Month Smiles can offer. Even though there are certainly other orthodontic options out there like Invisalign, which offers the ability to remove aligners, having this kind of freedom might make it more difficult to follow the rules and get the results you want.
