As a result, you get quick results with minimum discomfort and gently moves your front teeth to a correct alignment. So, if you are looking for fast and quick teeth straightening then visit your dentist and ask for the six-month smiles treatment.

Do not have a severe underbite, overbite, or crossbite problem
Have only mild to moderate crowded teeth, crowding, or gaps
If a special occasion for you is coming then it is better you can go for this treatment. However, your dentist will determine whether this is a suitable option for you.
What to expect before and during six month smiles treatment?
When you have decided to get your teeth aligned in six months and visit your dentist then the following may happen.
The dentist will examine your mouth thoroughly and also discuss your dental history. If needed they may need an X-ray.
Once it has been determined that you are a good fit for the six-months smile treatment then digital 3D impressions will be taken and photographs
The impressions will be sent to the laboratory for the preparation of the aligner trays that will help in fixing braces accurately
You will then need to visit the dentist again to put on the clear braces. The dentist will once completely clean your teeth before wearing your aligners.
After that, brackets will be placed and glued to your front teeth and tooth-coloured archwire will be threaded through each bracket
The aftercare instructions will be given to you and emailed
