The Six Month Smile Process

During your first appointment, Dr. Munoz will attach your clear braces or give you your first sets of clear aligners.
For the next 5 months, you’ll come in for regular adjustments to ensure that your teeth are moved into the proper position.
After each adjustment, your teeth will be straightened with gentle pressure and shifted into correct alignment.
At your last appointment, Dr. Munoz will remove your clear braces or aligners to reveal your transformed, straight smile!

What Dental Issues Can 6 Month Smiles Treat?

6 Month Smiles can be used to correct a wide variety of cosmetic dental issues. In most cases, this treatment is used to correct:

  • Crooked teeth - If your front teeth are crooked, 6 Month Smiles can be used to correct this, and move them into the proper alignment.
  • Misaligned teeth – Teeth that are jutting out or not properly aligned can be adjusted using 6 Month Smiles.
  • Gaps in your smile – If you have large gaps between your front teeth, 6 Month Smiles can be used to close them and provide you with a more appealing, attractive smile. 
It’s important to note that, compared to traditional braces and even Invisalign, 6 Month Smiles is a bit more limited when it comes to the conditions it can treat. This treatment is not intended to correct major bite or tooth alignment problems, so it might not be the best choice for you if you have severe orthodontic issues. 

Why Is Treatment Time Only 6 Months? 

6 Month Smiles offers a much faster treatment time than braces for a few reasons. First, it’s primarily focused on moving a patient’s front teeth. In most cases, your rear teeth, which take the longest to move with orthodontics, won’t be moved during treatment. 

In addition, 6 Month Smiles is only used to treat cosmetic dental issues, not major orthodontic problems like a bad bite. Because of this more limited scope of correction, it doesn’t take as long to straighten your teeth. 

What Does 6 Month Smiles Look Like While I’m Wearing It? 

This depends on the treatment that’s right for you. 6 Month Smiles offers both clear aligners and clear braces. Clear aligners look similar to a retainer or a night guard for teeth grinding, and are comparable to the aligners used by other orthodontic companies like Invisalign and ClearCorrect. They are made of thin plastic, and are completely invisible when worn. They’re also removable, so there are no dietary limitations, and you can remove them to brush and floss. 

6 Month Smiles clear braces are a bit different. Like traditional braces, they use a series of brackets, wires and elastic bands to correct the position of your teeth, and they are usually required if you have very uneven teeth or larger gaps. 

Unlike traditional braces, 6 Month Smiles braces are clear. Treatment involves the use of clear brackets and tooth-colored wires that match your teeth, so they are less noticeable and do not affect your appearance as much as traditional metal braces.

Not sure if 6 Month Smiles aligners or clear braces are right for you? At North Park Dental, Dr. Ricardo Munoz can provide you with an orthodontic consultation and help you find out which treatment might be right for you.
