Do you want a better smile? In today’s dental world a ‘smile makeover’ is a reality. I call these two techniques “Secret Braces.” Both Six Month Smiles and Invisalign are orthodontic in nature, they move the teeth. Each will close spaces, reduce crowding, widen the arch, lengthen teeth. Invisalign is a clear aligner technique in which the patient changes a clear, thin retainer approximately every two weeks. The aligner exerts a very slight pressure in order to move the teeth in the desired direction. Treatment times vary but average about ten months. Six Month Smiles is a light wire technique that, well, takes about six months! It is for adults. Clear brackets are placed on the teeth and a light wire is used to put slight pressure on the teeth to move them in place. Both of these techniques are excellent. The decision to go with Six Month Smiles or Invisalign is based on the nature of what needs to be accomplished, the time frame and the patient’s preference.
