Six Month Smiles in Bowie Differ from Traditional Braces

December 14, 2016

Six Month Smiles in Bowie are a cosmetic braces solution. Unlike regular braces, they just work on the smile zone at the front of the mouth.You’re a working professional. You do your job well, but still, you lack some self-confidence because of your crooked teeth. It’s embarrassing to smile broadly or laugh in public, and you tend to cover your smile. You shy away from traditional orthodontics because of the time and expense involved, and there’s that “metal mouth” look. Your alternative could be Six Month Smiles from Bowie dentists, Dr. Clarine Green Hightower and Dr. Yumna Valiulla at Ambiance Dental Spa.

Change That Smile Fast

Quick treatment time is one of the biggest benefits of Six Month Smiles. Composed of clear brackets and tooth-colored wires, the Six Month Smiles cosmetic braces in Bowie works just on the teeth at the front of the month–in other words, in the smile zone. Not usable for patients with complex orthodontic problems, Six Month braces take crooked top and bottom teeth (approximately six to eight on each arch) and moves them into more favorable positions.

The secret to the very predictable success of Six Month Smiles lies in the patented Lucid Lock clear brackets and tooth-colored wires. They place gradual and gentle pressure on teeth, closing gaps and correcting mild crookedness right in the area which shows when you smile. Because the appliances blend in with your smile, they are barely noticeable; so, patients aren’t self-conscious about their teeth as they undergo treatment.

Just think of how different traditional braces are. They have several drawbacks:

  • Complicated oral hygiene routines
  • Complex, frequent and sometimes uncomfortable adjustments
  • Long treatment times (two years is average)
  • Greater impact on family budget
  • Many dietary restrictions

Conversely, Six Month Smiles take just four to eight months. Plus, they are gentler on the patient’s tooth enamel, gums, personal appearance and pocketbook.

Do You Qualify for Six Month Smiles?

The professional team at Ambiance Dental Spa qualifies patients for Six Month Smiles with a comprehensive oral exam, digital X-rays and photos. Also, the dentist takes impressions of the patient’s mouth to send to the Six Month Smiles lab where the braces are custom-fabricated according to the doctor’s instructions.

The best candidates brush and floss regularly at home and get exams and cleanings with Drs. Hightower or Valiulla semi-annually. Also, patients must be 16 years of age or older, be in good oral health, and be motivated to get progress checks every four weeks to keep treatment on track. In general, a patient’s dental bite should be well-aligned as Six Month Smiles works just on smile aesthetics.
