I’m planning a wedding. What are my options for quick teeth straightening?
If you need a quick solution for straightening crooked teeth, you have a couple of short-term options. Our Pelham dental office offers both Invisalign and Six Month Smiles braces. We can help you choose the option that will work best for you, depending on the extent of tooth misalignment needed and the results you’re looking for.
You can achieve the quickest results with Six Month Smiles braces. The Six Month Smiles system of orthodontics offers a short-term treatment that produces beautiful results in a short period of time – usually about six months on average. Invisalign clear braces are another option, but treatment will take a little longer.
Six Month Smiles
Results with Six Month Smiles braces can be achieved so quickly because they are not designed to straighten all your teeth. They only work on the alignment of your front teeth – those that are visible when you smile. Since they only work on the front teeth, Six Months Smiles braces do not correct any problem you may have with your dental bite.
Invisalign clear aligners take longer to work because they are designed to straighten your teeth and adjust your dental bite as necessary. Everyone has different needs, so treatment times with Invisalign depend on the individual. Generally, though, desired results are usually achieved in about a year for adults; treatment for a teenager may take up to 18 months.
If you're interested in Invisalign or Six Month Smiles, please call our Pelham dental office. We will be happy to answer your questions or schedule a consultation.
