Six Month Smiles is a company that sells a clear brace designed to straighten your front teeth in roughly six months. This product is marketed to general dentists and only focuses on tackling cosmetic problems and straightening the front teeth, leading to quicker results.
This technique, called indirect bonding, is an excellent method if completed by an orthodontist who knows where and how to place the braces. In many cases, a general dentist learns how to place the braces through a two-day course, which does not guarantee accurate, quality results.
Result May Not Be What You Expect
This product is focused only on straightening the front teeth, but it won’t improve your bite. In some cases, this treatment can lead to a worse bite. Comprehensive orthodontic treatment is much more than just straightening teeth. It also involves improving the overall bite and function of your teeth.
Treatment can be Costly and Time-Consuming
In many cases, patients are not made aware of the limitations of the Six Month Smiles brace, causing their expectations to be much higher than the results of the treatment. Once you’ve done the treatment, the only way to improve the results further is to go through treatment again. This can be a costly and time-consuming process that is not likely worth your trouble. Professional, comprehensive orthodontic care is your best option when it comes to improving your smile.
