What is Six Month Smiles?
Six Month Smiles offers patients in the La Grange Park area the ability to straighten their teeth quickly, easily, and affordably without surgery or the use of traditional metal braces. This orthodontic option makes fast adjustments to your bite using custom-made, clear aligners. Unlike traditional metal braces, which can be unattractive, painful, and time-consuming, Six Month Smiles aligners are comfortable enough to wear part-time and can be removed whenever you want.
The Six Month Smiles treatment focuses on the front teeth, gently moving them to their correct place, while the aligners offer a discreet solution compared to traditional braces.
How Does Six Month Smiles Work?
Six Month Smiles’ custom aligners and clear braces are made to fit your mouth and lifestyle. On your first visit, which lasts up to an hour, dental X-rays will show whether you are a suitable candidate for the program, and impressions are taken of your teeth. If you are eligible, your custom aligners are made at the Six Month Smiles Laboratory.
Once your aligners have been made, you need to visit Dr. Fieldhouse & Dr. Peterson to have them fitted and checked for comfort and alignment. After the initial appointment, you just need short check-ins with our team for the duration of the treatment plan.
How Long Does the Treatment Take?
Generally, treatment takes around six months, although some treatment programs can last up to 10 months for the best results. You’ll return every six weeks for a brief checkup and simple tightening or adjustment until your treatment plan is finished.
Six Month Smiles vs. Invisalign
Six Month Smiles allows our patients to complete their treatment within just six months, which is substantially quicker than Invisalign. Because the treatment plan is shorter, the cost is also more affordable.
Six Month Smiles is ideal for patients who are looking for minor cosmetic dental work and want to see results quickly. In contrast, Invisalign helps with more serious dental problems such as overbites, underbites, or crossbites. Results can potentially last longer, and your teeth are less likely to relapse due to the longer treatment program.
Six Month Smile Benefits
Six Month Smiles uses advanced materials that are nearly invisible, and its treatment time is the shortest of all current cosmetic orthodontic solutions. The gentle alignment technology maintains a very minimal force, which means you’re less likely to experience discomfort with this treatment.
Six Month Smiles works for all ages. Whether you’re a teenager or enjoying retirement in La Grange Park, these discreet clear braces are an ideal solution for misaligned teeth.
