If you are a teen or an adult and have crooked, crowded, or gapped teeth it can seem like your only options are Invisalign or traditional braces. Invisalign can be expensive and traditional braces are unsightly and can take years to get you the results you want, but now there is another option: Six Month Braces. East Cooper Smiles has the most experience with the Six Month Braces procedure in the Mount Pleasant area so you can be confident you are getting the best care at our office.

Why Six Month Braces?

Less time – The most common reason people choose the Six Month Braces program over Invisalign and traditional braces is because it can give you the results you want in less than half the time. While it can still take longer or shorter to get your teeth exactly the way you want them, the average is about six months.

Less noticeable – One of the biggest reasons that people try to avoid braces is because they don’t want to have a mouth full of metal. Switching out colored brackets can be fun for kids, but when you’re an adult it is just unpleasant and embarrassing. Six Month Braces are designed to be nearly invisible because they use tooth-colored brackets and wires so you won't have to feel self-conscious every time you smile.

Less pain – Six Month Braces are designed to be low force and because they are on for less time than other methods, you will have less discomfort. Traditional braces can cause years of pain from monthly tightening, broken brackets, and wires poking the inside of your cheeks.

Less money – One of the most appealing aspects of the Six Month Braces program is that it is less expensive than Invisalign or traditional braces. They are also a more affordable option for those considering veneers or composite bonding and fix problems instead of just hiding them.

Are Six Month Braces Right for You?

While Six Month Braces are a great solution for those looking to fix minor to moderate crowding or gaps, it may not be the best option for those with more severe crookedness, or those with bite problems. If you have been wanting straighter teeth and live in the Mount Pleasant, SC area and would like more information on the Six Month Braces program, please give our office a call today!
