Crooked and misaligned teeth can not only lower your confidence, but this condition can cause oral health concerns as well. Yet, as an adult, getting braces isn’t the most comfortable or inconspicuous way to get straighter teeth. This is why Dr. Scott J. Stephens offers his patients in the Fayetteville, AR area a better option: Six Month Braces

Why Choose Six Month Braces

  • They take less time – Traditional braces can often take about two years to align your teeth, while six month braces only take an average of six months. It may take more or less time depending on how severe the misalignment is, yet most people can get the smile they have always wanted in just a few months. Which makes them perfect for anyone wanting a more attractive smile for a special occasion such as graduation, a wedding, or a school reunion. 
  • They are more attractive – Our six month braces treatment can be done with tooth colored brackets and wires so they will blend in with your teeth. Traditional braces use metal wires and brackets that stand out against your teeth and can make older teens and adults self-conscious. 
  • Avoid surgery – Many adults who want to avoid unsightly and time consuming traditional braces opt for surgery or other cosmetic dentistry procedures. While cosmetic dentistry can give you a more beautiful smile without the need for braces, most of the procedures can damage your teeth. Six month braces are a great alternative for those with healthy teeth that only need to be shifted into place.
  • Less money – Traditional braces can cost thousands of dollars more than six month braces simply because they require more time and more follow up appointments. Because six month braces only take a few months, they are a more affordable option for those who want a straighter, more cohesive smile. 

A Better Smile Today

Crowded, gapped, and crooked teeth can make it hard to maintain your oral health, cause problems speaking, and lower self-esteem. Six month braces can give you a healthier and more aesthetically appealing smile in a fraction of the time it would take traditional braces. If you would like a straighter smile, please contact our office to set up a consultation.
