FAQs On Six Month Smiles

How does 6 Months Smiles differ from traditional braces in Hendersonville?

Your Asheville dentist understands how important it is for you to have a healthy smile, but also one that makes you feel confident. When the teeth are crooked or otherwise misaligned, the common side effect is to feel uncomfortable and self-conscious, even to the point of hiding the smile for fear that someone will pass unfavorable judgment. Indeed, our smiles are the primary way in which others form first opinions about us. Fortunately, there are modern, more effective ways to straighten your teeth.

Many teens and adults find it impossible to have metal braces on their teeth for a year or longer, so, they simply live with misalignment. Six Month Smiles changes all of that. This method is not one that requires you to spend your day in aligners, nor do you have to sport a shiny smile for twelve or more months. Wearing discreet Six Month Smile braces, you can achieve your smile goals quickly and comfortably.

This innovative cosmetic orthodontic treatment allows us to realign teeth with discreet braces. The model is quite similar to traditional braces, using the bracket and wire design. There is a difference, however, in that clear braces are barely noticeable, so you can go through the 6 months of treatment freely sharing smiles at work and social events. We love offering the best choices to our patients from Hendersonville and surrounding areas, and Six Month Smiles has been a big hit.

Not only is the Six Month Smiles method more discreet than traditional braces, but this system also leads to faster results. This is not through great force, but through design. During treatment, the front teeth are fitted with brackets, and wires put into place to move visible teeth into their proper position. Focusing on only the teeth that are visible in the smile produces optimal cosmetic results within four to nine months. Due to this type of model, Six Month Smiles may not be suitable for those patients who need to address certain bite issues. During your orthodontic consultation at Asheville Smile Center, we will help you discover the most appropriate way to straighten your teeth.

The state of your smile indicates health, vitality, and friendliness. Gaps and overcrowding are cosmetic issues that can be quickly corrected with clear, discreet Six Month Smiles.

Contact us to see how we can enhance your smile.
