Smile in 6 months or Social 6 reduces orthodontic treatment time to around 6 months by concentrating only on straightening teeth that are visible when smiling, to perform a smile transformation for people who experience low self-esteem as a result of spaced, crooked or misaligned teeth. Traditional braces on the other hand straighten all the teeth in the mouth and as such need treatment times of around 18-24 months.
Patients worried about the stigma attached to wearing orthodontic braces during adulthood for a long period of time can now benefit from Smile in 6 months/Social 6 treatment which involves discreet types of aesthetic white coloured braces, lingual braces or Invisalign for a shorter time. This fixed appliance treatment option is quicker than Invisalign which involves invisible removable aligners and is more efficient in carrying out certain tooth movements such as tooth rotations and extrusions.
