Why might Houston, TX area patients consider Six Month Smiles for orthodontic treatment?

Why might Houston, TX area patients consider Six Month Smiles

When Houston, TX area patients are faced with the concept of straightening their smiles, they may automatically cringe at the idea of orthodontic treatment. They think of unsightly metal brackets and wires covering their teeth for years. Teenagers and adults are typically turned off by the idea and they may seek alternative ways of addressing minor misalignment and spacing issues of the front teeth. The team of Vivid Dental is happy to offer patients Six Month Smiles.


Six Month Smiles is a special technique in dentistry that allows patients to realign their visible teeth with tooth-colored braces that blend in with the smile and are far less noticeable than traditional braces. This form of orthodontics focuses on improving the teeth near the front of the mouth, and is best for patients who do not need to realign their bite. It is strictly for cosmetic purposes and works great on mild to moderate misalignment of the anterior teeth.


Six Month Smiles uses lower forces than conventional braces to readjust teeth into their new positions in a more comfortable manner. It does so quickly, with most patients enjoying a new smile in less than a year. Conventional braces which have to realign the bite require more time and attention, which means many more months of treatment.


Just like conventional braces, patients will have to wear a retainer to maintain the results. If a retainer is not worn as directed, patients may experience the shifting of their teeth and require additional orthodontic services to correct it.


Many patients who want to consider the benefits of Six Month Smiles often believe there is a catch, that the process seems too great to be real. Fortunately, there’s absolutely no catch! Any teen or adult who has crooked, misaligned, or spaced teeth near the front of their smile is likely an appropriate candidate for treatment. To start the process, patients in the Houston, TX area can visit Vivid Dental to learn about orthodontic treatment and find out what it is the best, most appropriate way to address the aesthetics of the smile in a beautiful, discreet manner.
