What Does The 6 Month Smile Procedure Involve?

The treatment uses translucent Lucid-Lok memory wires and brackets that blend seamlessly with a patient’s existing tooth structure; they provide consistent levels of force the align and straighten teeth in a gentle manner. The unique shape and structure of the memory wires work in conjunction with pre-positioned brackets to realign teeth comfortably and predictably.

When using traditional orthodontic procedures and braces, the results provide fantastic results; however, this type of treatment can sometimes take up to two years or more to achieve.

After a patient’s initial appointment, which includes x-rays, impressions, and a comprehensive examination, a case submission script and the patient’s teeth impressions are sent to the processing facility.

After receiving the impressions, a specialist will identify the correct bracket location placements using the impressions provided to achieve the desired effect. The specialist will then fabricate custom-made bonding trays. These make the bonding process incredibly simple, stress-free, and efficient.
