    Our office is pleased to be among the first Six Month Smiles dentists in Buford, Georgia. Six Month Smiles is a short-term, clear braces system that can give you a straighter smile in as few as six months. What makes Six Month Smiles successful is the comprehensive treatment planning by our dentists, who have completed special training to offer this advanced clear braces system.

    What is Six Month Smiles?

    Six Month Smiles is a short-term orthodontic treatment for adults and teenagers. Six Month Smiles uses clear, cosmetic braces to correct moderate alignment issues such as crooked, crowded, or spaced teeth. Lastly, Six Month Smiles is a cosmetic dentistry service that Lanier Family & Cosmetic Dentistry offers to patients in Buford, GA.

    Six Month Smiles is a clear braces system for teenagers and adults but is specially geared towards adults with minor cosmetic issues. Six Month Smiles is an ideal treatment for adults experiencing orthodontic relapse, minor tooth movements, often as a result of not following through with a retainer.

    Six Month Smiles is not for patients who have major bite issues, TMJ-related problems, or other major dental concerns. After a simple consultation, Dr. Brown or Dr. Newberry can determine if 6 Month Smiles is right for you.

     

    Six Month Smiles vs. Metal Braces

    Six Month Smiles and traditional metal braces can help you achieve a straighter smile. However, they do have key differences that you need to consider.  For starters, you have to visit a specialist for metal braces. We can treat you in fewer visits in the comfort of our Buford dental office.

    Scope of treatment

    Traditional metal braces are designed to address many orthodontic issues, including severe misalignments, bite corrections, and jaw positioning. On the other hand, Six Months Smiles is effective for mild to moderate crowding and spacing issues. It is primarily focused on the cosmetic enhancement of your smile. You will require metal braces if you have complex bite issues or a jaw misalignment.

    Treatment duration

    Traditional metal braces treatment can take many years, sometimes up to four years, to achieve the desired results. The treatment time will vary significantly from patient to patient, with an average range of 18 to 24 months, depending on the complexity of the case. As the name implies, Six Month Smiles will deliver straighter teeth in less than a year. This popular cosmetic treatment aims to deliver results within six months, making it a more time-efficient option for those seeking a quicker transformation.

    Comfort level

    The placement and adjustments required with traditional braces can cause temporary discomfort and irritation in the mouth. Many patients complain about how uncomfortable and unsightly braces are. However, Six Month Smiles braces are invisible and designed to be extremely comfortable. They feature a low-force, high-frequency approach to teeth straightening. Patients who choose Six Month Smiles claim the treatment is more comfortable, with less discomfort or irritation.

    Six Month Smiles vs. Invisalign

    Lanier Smiles is an Invisalign dentist in Buford, GA as well as a Six Month Smiles provider. When comparing these teeth straightening methods, both offer unique advantages and considerations.

    Appearance

    Just like Six Month Smiles, Invisalign is a clear braces system that offers discreet treatment to help you achieve a straighter smile. Six Month Smiles features clear brackets and tooth-colored wires that are more discreet than traditional metal braces. Invisalign features clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible, making them an attractive option if you prioritize discreet treatment.

    Convenience

    The brackets and wires used in the Six Month Smiles treatment are fixed to your teeth. You will need to make regular visits to our dental office for adjustments. Invisalign, on the other hand, uses removable aligners that allow for greater convenience while eating, brushing, and flossing. You can even remove them for special occasions.

    Treatment duration

    Invisalign uses removable aligners to reposition teeth, and the length of treatment will differ based on the complexity of your case. However, a typical Invisalign treatment takes 12 to 18 months to complete. A Six Month Smiles treatment typically takes about six months to achieve desired results.

    Scope of treatment

    Once again, we cannot recommend Six Month Smiles if you have more severe bite issues. This is a cosmetic dentistry treatment strictly designed to correct cosmetic problems. Invisalign is the better treatment option if you suffer from more complex orthodontic issues.

    The Benefits of Six Month Smiles

    • Fast results: Six Month Smiles can often achieve desired results in less than a year and as little as six months. This is a significantly shorter treatment time than traditional braces.
    • More Aesthetically pleasing: The clear brackets and tooth-colored wires blend in with your natural teeth, offering a discreet and attractive appearance during treatment.
    • Comfortable treatment: The low-force orthodontic system minimizes discomfort and irritation, making the treatment process more enjoyable.
