At Desert Dental located in Tucson, Arizona, Dr. Brett M. Barney and our team are pleased to offer Six Month Smiles® for our patients looking for smile solutions for crooked teeth. What if you only want your front teeth, also called the “social six” straightened? If you have a great back in the back of your mouth, have mild alignment issues in the front, have mild crowding or slight spacing between your teeth, you are a good candidate for the Six Month Smiles System.
Six Month Smiles is a cosmetic braces system of short-term orthodontic treatment using clear braces that are worn over your teeth to straighten your smile. The average treatment time is around six months versus 18-30 months for comprehensive orthodontic treatment. This system uses clear brackets along with tooth-colored wires that are barely visible, making them a discreet alternative to traditional metal braces. Wearing this system uses low force to move your teeth comfortably.
If you have crooked teeth and want a straighter smile, this may be the right choice for you. While these are not comprehensive orthodontics to correct bite issues, they can help beautify your smile. So, if you have a fairly normal bite, with small spaces or gaps to improve, these may be a good choice for you.
If you are an adult or older teenager and would like to have straighter teeth without wearing traditional metal braces, Six Month Smile’s can help. For more information on how Six Month Smiles can improve your smile, we invite you to give our Desert Dental team a call today at (520) 663.0419 and schedule a consultation with Dr. Barney. We are excited to help you meet your smile goals!
