Six Month Smiles
There are only two places in America where a 13 year old is considered as an adult – at the movie theatre (where he or she pays full price), and at the dental office. Once your second teeth are in, usually by age 16, we consider you an adult.
Most adults whether 16 or 60, don’t want orthodontics because:
It takes too long (conventional braces are usually on for 18 to 24 months).
They fear they will look unattractive while wearing braces.
Six Month Smiles addresses both of these concerns effectively.
Dr Vuppala is one of provider of Six Month Smiles system. Not only can he give you a straighter, more attractive smile in four-to-nine months (our patients are in Six Months Smiles an average of just six months)
Using clear brackets and tooth-colored wires, Six Month Smiles focuses on aligning the teeth you see when you smile, in a very short period of time.
Think about it - by your next dental cleaning you will see straighter teeth.
Advanced Dentistry of You Smile Dental also specializes in Invisalign for teens and adults. Dr. Vuppala has been fitting them for more than Three years.
This method uses a series of custom-fit clear trays to gently bring teeth into proper position over time. Results aren’t quite as fast as Six Month Smiles, but it is a suitable alternative for mild to moderate misalignment. And best of all, there are no brackets or wires. These trays can be removed so you eat normally; brush and floss thoroughly.
Whether you’ve just started paying full admission at the theatre, or you were there when Bogie and Bacall first glided across the screen, you can have a movie-star smile. Talk with Dr.Vuppala about Six Month Smiles and Invisalign
A: The Six Month Smiles technique employs the latest technology and techniques in dentistry to move your teeth quickly and safely. The key components of the treatment are the use of special nickel titanium wires and a primary focus of moving the teeth that show when you smile.
Q: Six months sounds good, but will I still have a mouth full of metal for the whole time?
A: No! Six Month Smiles dentists use tooth-colored braces that are barely visible. The wires are tooth-colored as well. These are nothing like metal braces!
Q: How are Six Month Smiles braces more comfortable than regular braces?
A: Six Month Smiles braces use low force to move teeth more comfortably. Many people think that the accelerated treatment means simply “tightening” regular braces to get the teeth moving, but that is not true. Six Month Smiles utilizes standard orthodontic mechanics, but with an emphasis on the cosmetic appearance of your teeth rather than the position of your bite.
Q: Do Six Month Smiles braces damage the teeth, roots, or gums?
A: There are no more risks of root damage or other issues than those associated with traditional orthodontics. Since the forces used with Six Month Smiles braces are lighter and teeth are seldom extracted, there are actually even fewer risks involved with Six Month Smiles orthodontics.
Q: Will I have to wear a retainer?
A: Yes, as with any teeth-straightening treatment a retainer is necessary to maintain the straighter position of your teeth. If you don’t want to wear a removable retainer, you can have a bonded retainer placed. There are a variety of options that you can choose from according to your personal preference and situation.
Q: What's the catch?
A: There is no catch. If you are an adult (15 years and older) with crooked or spaced teeth and you're not looking for a major alteration to your bite, this could be the solution for you! Most adults ARE candidates for Six Month Smiles.
