Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What do Six Month Smiles Lucid-Lok braces and wires look like?
A: Six Month Smiles braces and wires are barely noticeable – they blend very well with the colour of you teeth. These definitely aren’t like the normal metal braces!
Q: How can the Six Month Smiles System straighten my teeth in only six months?
A: The Six Month Smiles System employs new and specific orthodontic technology that provides for safe, comfortable and efficient tooth movement. Additionally, the aim of Six Month Smiles is to correct the items that you are unhappy with and not make time consuming changes to the way your back teeth bite together.
Q: Is the process uncomfortable?
A: Six Month Smiles involves light forces to gently move your teeth to their new position. The process is comfortable. The short treatment times are not achieved by using high forces on the teeth.
Q: Will I have to wear a retainer?
A: Yes, as with all orthodontic treatment, a retainer is necessary to maintain the straighter position of your teeth. 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 is a fantastic option for you!
Q: Does everyone really finish in 6 months?
A: Six months is the average treatment time. Most patients finish right around 6 months, but treatment times range from 4-9 months.
