Are you self-conscious or embarrassed by your smile? Six Month Smiles is a faster, more affordable cosmetic brace system used to straighten crooked teeth. So eliminate the need you feel to constantly cover your smile when you talk or laugh, visit Grove City Dental today. Dr. Scott Schumann can help you determine the best alternative treatment for correcting misaligned teeth.

Invisalign versus Six Month Smiles

Invisalign corrective orthotics utilize a series of clear plastic aligners to move teeth without the use of a traditional metal-brace design. Although more severe misalignment may require traditional braces, qualified patients can take advantage Invisalign benefits that include:

  • No appliances affixed to the teeth
  • Remove for brushing & flossing
  • Protects teeth from grinding
  • No orthodontic emergencies
  • Removable aligners used in sequence
  • No loose or broken wires

However, some patients are poor candidates for the clear plastic aligners as their front teeth are over rotated or too crooked. In such cases, Dr. Schumann may recommend  that patients who match the right criteria consider Six Month Smiles as an alternative treatment. Clear braces are affixed to the teeth and flexible wires are inserted to move the teeth in the desired direction. Benefits of using Six Month Smiles for orthodontic treatments can include:

  • Less invasive than traditional braces
  • Rotate and straighten teeth
  • No waiting 2-3 years for results
  • Clear components much less visible
  • Results in 6 to 8 months
  • Safe and affordable solution

Based on your specific needs, our dentist may recommend Invisalign or Six Month Smiles corrective braces, or may suggest a combination of treatments to help restore your beautiful smile. If aligning only the front teeth is your goal, Six Month Smiles clear braces or Invisalign’s invisible aligners are both viable options. Contact our office today to schedule your examination and consultation.

Why Choose Six Month Smiles Braces?

Six Month Smiles is an effective and affordable orthodontic appliance that allows our dentist to improve the appearance of teeth that are visible when you smile. For patients who fit the proper criteria, the clear cosmetic braces can be used to straighten your crooked front teeth in about six months.
