Many patients wonder, “What are Six Month Smiles?” It never surprises us when they ask, because we know they all want that straight, “picture-perfect” smile. Many people often go through the longer one- to two-year process of traditional braces to achieve this when it might not be necessary. The beauty of a straight smile can actually be achieved in half a year. Six Month Smiles are designed to give you the smile of your dreams in a much shorter period of time than traditional braces.

What Are Six Month Smiles?

Six Month Smiles are invisible “braces” that patients wear for about six months to get straighter teeth. They are a safe and affordable option for those who want to straighten up their smile quickly. Six Month Smiles are made with plastic and are completely invisible. Nobody will know you’re wearing Six Month Smiles unless, of course, you fall in love with them and tell all your friends how great they are.

After going through the process of Six Month Smiles, people feel more confident about the smile that once made them feel self-conscious. The procedure for Six Month Smiles is completely safe and effective. Although it is already an affordable option on its own, these invisible braces might be fully covered by insurance, depending on the provider.

Why Not Traditional Metal Braces?

Unlike the convenient Six Month Smiles, traditional braces come with risk and extra maintenance. Dental hygiene and oral care are very important at any time, but they’re even more important during the long process of traditional braces. Those with metal braces have to pay extra attention to any food that gets trapped between the metal and their teeth, which might require frequent brushing. Standard metal braces also come with the risk of potential tooth root damage. This means the roots of your teeth might erode, leaving you with dead teeth. While this rarely happens to people with braces, tooth root damage can significantly impact one’s emotional health. Braces are a long enough process on their own, and unfortunately they often come with the burden of needing to wear a retainer for years after the braces are removed.

Get a Smile Worth a Million Bucks for a Low Cost

Braces often cost patients an average of $3,000–$7,000 total and are rarely covered by insurance. Six Month Smiles, on the other hand, are much more affordable and often fully covered by insurance. To find out more about the cost of this procedure, check out our contact form.
