Are Six Month Smiles really only six months?
Six Month Smiles treatment at our West Allis, WI dental office is appropriately named because on average, it takes six months to produce desired results. This means that some patients may see results in as little as four months, while others need treatment for as long as nine months.
Six Month Smiles vs. Traditional Orthodontics
Treatment with traditional orthodontics takes longer because it is more involved and includes correcting a bad dental bite as well as realigning teeth. Six Month Smiles, on the other hand, were designed as an esthetic solution for patients who have only mild crowding of teeth that show when they smile. Six Month Smiles don’t work differently than traditional braces, but we are only seeking to provide a better cosmetic result.
Length of Treatment
Treatment time depends completely on you, the goals you are trying to accomplish, and the extent of treatment needed. You are unique, and so are your dental needs. Since your Six Month Smiles treatment is completely customized, the length will be determined by your specific needs.
