|How do 6ms compare to invisalign?||Invisalign uses a series of clear hard plastic trays to move the teeth. 6 Month Braces uses nearly invisible brackets and wires. So, while 6 Month Braces are a bit more visible, they work MUCH faster and give Dr. Gaffey far more control over the results. Also, 6 Month Braces don't require you to remember to do anything. 6 Month Braces are on "auto-pilot." All you have to do is see Dr. Gaffey once a month for about 6 months.|
CAN BRACES REALLY BE DONE OR FINISHED IN 6 MONTHS? HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE?
Dr. Gaffey utilizes the latest techniques and technology to move your teeth quickly and safely. It's important to note that Six Month Smiles Adult Braces are not intended to be a substitute for comprehensive orthodontic treatment. 6 Month Braces are intended to straighten the teeth that show in your smile. This approach may not address bite discrepancies. Six Month Smiles is a technique aimed at treating the cosmetic zone in ADULT smiles.
HOW WILL I LOOK WITH THESE BRACES?
6 Month Braces are virtually invisible. Dr. Gaffey uses tooth-colored brackets
DO 6 MONTH BRACES COST MORE THAN REGULAR BRACES?
|6 Month Braces may be less expensive than traditional braces. See our Payment Plans to find out more information.|
DO I HAVE TO WEAR A RETAINER?
Yes, as with any orthodontic procedure a retainer is necessary. This is especially true for adult orthodontic treatment. Read more about retainers on our After Treatment page.
ARE 6 MONTH BRACES MORE PAINFUL THAN REGULAR BRACES?
|No. The Six Month Smiles? Technique uses LIGHT force to move the teeth gently and comfortably. Like with traditional dental braces, some patients may experience some temporary discomfort. For those occasions Panadol or Nurofen work well. However, most patients tell us they just feel a "tightness."|
WHY NOT JUST GET VENEERS DONE INSTEAD?
|Dr Gaffey says, "While veneers can provide amazing results, 6 Month Braces offer a more conservative and far less expensive solution to a crooked smile. Veneers are a wonderful way to improve the shape and color of teeth and continue to be an excellent choice for some cases. However, 6 Month Braces, along with Tooth Whitening, provide beautiful results without having to make irreversible changes to your natural teeth. Call us today for a consultation, and we can discuss which is best for you."|
