There are several choices open to adult customers who want to straighten their teeth. Two of the most familiar options are Invisalign and Six Month Smiles. These are both popular for different reasons, but there are advantages and disadvantages to each of these different types of dental braces.
6 month smiles
During six month smiles treatment, the average completion time tends to be from four to nine months. Following successful treatment, patients often wonder how their brace is going to be removed.
When the brace is bonded on, we use a composite-based luting cement to hold it in place, which is essentially a glue used on the brackets to glue to the teeth. The idea of this glue is so that it attaches to the enamel of the teeth, without causing any damage upon removal.
6 Month Smile and Invisalign are both considered to be cosmetic orthodontic treatments primarily used to align the front teeth and not correct the bite. Invisalign uses clear aligners which are changed periodically every 2 weeks until treatment is complete.
