Cosmetic Braces Richardson
Q) Do Six Month Smiles braes cost more than regular braces?
A) Cost is generally a little less than traditional braces, and you can potentially save a tremendous amount of time.
Q) Can my teeth really be straightened in just six months? How is that possible?
A) Dr. Haney utilizes the absolute latest technology to move teeth quickly and safely. The key is the low pressure nickel-titanium wires that we use on the teeth that show when you smile. Six Month Smiles braces are intended to move the teeth in the smile zone. This technique is not a substitute for full conventional orthodontic treatment, and complex cases may still require a referral to an orthodontist.
Q) The concept sounds terrific, but will I have metal showing in my mouth for six months?
A) No! Six Month Smiles dentists use tooth-colored braces that are barely visible. The wires we use are tooth-colored as well. Six Months Smiles braces look nothing like traditional wire braces.
Q) How are Six Month Smiles more comfortable than regular braces?
A) Six Month Smiles are low-force braces that move teeth more comfortably. Some people assume that a greater force must be applied, but this is not the case. Actually, the pressure is so low because the focus is moving the teeth that show and not realigning the jaw or bite. The emphasis of Six Month Smiles is cosmetic.
Q) Do Six Month Smiles braces damage teeth, roots, or gums?
A) Six Month Smiles braces will not damage your teeth, roots, or gums more than traditional orthodontics. In fact, the risk is less, because the braces are worn for a shorter period of time.
Q) Will I need to wear a retainer when treatment is finished?
A) Absolutely. As with any orthodontic movement, a retainer is required to maintain the position of your new smile. We highly recommend a permanently bonded retainer, but there are other options available.
Q) What’s the catch?
A) There is no catch! If you are 18 years or older and want to change your smile, and you are not looking to make major alterations to your bite, you may be a great candidate. Most adults are candidates for Six Month Smiles.
Q) How do I begin treatment with Six Month Smiles?
A) Call Dr. Haney! We offer this technology at our Richardson dental office, and we see patients from Plano, Dallas, Garland, Allen, Carrollton, and beyond.
