Do You Wear them for Six Months?
In six months, your teeth will be brand new. It’s a real thing, and is just one of the many advancements in the world of dentistry. If you are one of the luck few who qualifies for these braces, you may be able to get your flawless smile in less than six months. Even though six months is the given timeframe for these braces, for some patients, it takes an entire six months or longer depending on the state of your teeth.
How Are the Six Month Braces Different Similar to Regular Braces?
Just like any other braces, there is a wire and bracket mechanism to direct your teeth into the correct position. The difference is that they can be tooth-colored, which means people will not be able to tell if you are wearing braces, unless you tell them, of course.
To make the appearance of these braces even more discreet, you can request your dentist to position the wires and brackets at the back of your teeth. You can discuss with your dentist about all the available options you can choose from regarding fixing your teeth. If you are a suitable candidate for this option, you will be smiling in six months.
