Invisalign versus Six-Month Smiles

May 2, 2018

Your smile is an asset and we at Avalon Dental Center are committed to making it perfect. With revolutionary dental treatment options like Invisalign and Six Month Smiles you can correct your smile  without the embarrassment associated with metal braces. Our expert dental team headed by Dr. Michael Ofir will make the treatment fast and smooth for you. These modern trends in orthodontic treatment are a favorite of teenagers and adults alike..


What is the difference between Invisalign and Six-Month Smiles?


Invisalign treatment consists of devices  known as clear aligners. They move your teeth into the desired position by applying constant low-grade pressure to correct or improve your smile. Unlike metal braces, however, these are made of transparent plastic materials which  make them virtually invisible. They cover  your teeth entirely, like a cap, and are contoured according to  tooth shape and size. Each set of aligners  are custom made for individual patients.

Six Month Smiles, on the other hand, is an orthodontic treatment plan which consists of clear  or tooth colored brackets  which makes them inconspicuous to an extent. This  means that the treatment will be very similar to treatment with traditional  metal braces while being much less conspicuous .


How to choose between Invisalign and Six-Month Smiles?


For people concerned with the aesthetics of treatment, Invisalign is the best available option. It doesn’t cause sores, pain, staining of teeth, tooth decay and other such discomfort commonly associated with braces. It can effectively treat limited cases of crowded teeth, spaces , overbites and under-bites. Six Month Smiles, while somewhat less invisible, can be used to treat  more severe cases of malocclusion such as cross-bites. Also, the clear brackets are a bit brittle and can chip off and can wear down  tooth enamel.


How much time does it take?


The length of the treatment varies according to the severity of the case. However, at Avalon Dental Center, be assured that your treatment will always be completed  as quickly as possible. Generally, Invisalign takes longer than Six Month Smiles because it is not bonded to the teeth and has to be replaced regularly.
