The Six Month Smiles® Procedure
The tooth-colored wiring utilized in Six Month Smiles® treatments is composed of biocompatible nickel titanium – a material that helps to expedite the teeth straightening process. Once the braces have been secured to your teeth, they will gradually shift your teeth with low tension and mild force until the optimal results are achieved. The entire process typically takes about six months to complete, and unlike some alternatives, there is no additional risk of damage to the roots of your teeth.
Following the completion of your treatment and the removal of your braces, it is generally recommended that a retainer be worn regularly to help you maintain your straight new smile.
