Enjoy a Discreet Solution for a Straight Smile

You are not out of options. Columbian Square Dental offers the most preferred treatments in orthodontics. You can enjoy a less noticeable option and get the results you want in less than one year. Six Month Smiles aligns the teeth that are visible when you smile using tooth-colored wires and clear brackets. You will correct your alignment and bite concerns using a treatment that blends in with your teeth.
What is Six Month Smiles?
Six Month Smiles uses the same method as traditional metal braces to align your teeth. A series of brackets and wires gradually pull them into position. Although they are very similar treatments, there are clear differences between the two.
Traditional braces align all your teeth; whereas, Six Month Smiles only aligns the top and bottom teeth that you can see when you smile. Not to mention, you will not need to deal with the noticeable appearance of brackets and wires. Instead, they match your enamel color, so they seamlessly blend in with your teeth.

What is the Process Like?
You first need a consultation to ensure you are a candidate for Six Month Smiles. Besides a visual exam, we also take x-rays, pictures, and impressions of your teeth to create a customized treatment plan. The dental laboratory crafts clear brackets and tooth-colored wires to bond to your teeth, which are fitted during your second visit. Your dentist strategically places them in their ideal locations to move your teeth over the next several months.
Depending on the severity of your bite and alignment concerns, your treatment can take anywhere from 4 to 9 months. You will need an appointment every 5 weeks during this time, so we can adjust and tighten the arch wire to move your teeth.
It is important to maintain your oral hygiene while wearing your braces. Brush your teeth after every meal, paying extra attention when cleaning around the brackets and wires. Be sure to floss your teeth daily.
It is best to avoid foods that are sticky because they can get caught under the braces or cause them to break. You will also want to avoid any foods you must bite into, such as apples. Instead, cut them into small pieces.
