Never underestimate the power of healthy smile. Not only can it be a huge confidence booster, but it can also be a huge ally in situations like on job interviews, first dates and business meetings, as just a flash of those pearly whites can help others perceive you as a friendly, healthy and personable individual.
It should go without saying, however, that not everybody has perfect teeth. In fact, most people will admit that they have some sort of an issue with their teeth.
The good news is that dental technology and orthodontics have advanced to the point where corrective procedures are faster and more effective than ever before. Yes, while in days past patients had to wear braces for several years, two methods have emerged that can correct teeth in as little as six months - Invisalign and Six Month Smiles. This post will take a look at each so you can decide what may be best for your situation.
Invisalign consists of aligner trays, made of invisible plastic, which fit over the teeth. Think of Invisalign like a retainer, except it is a much more inconspicuous device. Invisalign works to gradually shift and straighten the teeth.
Six Month Smiles are essentially clear adult braces that help shift the teeth in a fast and efficient manner.
As you can see, there are many similarities between Six Month Smiles and Invisalign, such as comfort, flexibility, effectiveness and discrete teeth correction. At the same time, however, there are also key differences. These differences include the likes of cost, process and time. With all this in mind, which treatment is right for you?
