FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Q: How can teeth be straightened in only six months?
A: The 6 Month Braces technique employs the latest technology and techniques in dentistry to move your teeth quickly and safely. The key components of the treatment are the use of special nickel titanium wires and a primary focus of moving the teeth that show when you smile.
Q: Six months sounds good, but will I still have a mouth full of metal for the whole time?
A: No! Dr. Chen uses tooth-colored braces that are barely visible. The wires are usually tooth-colored as well. These are nothing like metal braces!
Q: How are 6 Month Cosmetic Braces more comfortable than regular braces?
A: 6 Month Cosmetic Braces uses low force to move teeth more comfortably. Many people think that the accelerated treatment means simply “tightening” regular braces to get the teeth moving, but that is not true. 6 Month Cosmetic Braces utilizes standard orthodontic mechanics, but with an emphasis on the cosmetic appearance of your teeth rather than the position of your bite.
Q: Do 6 Month Braces damage the teeth, roots, or gums?
A: There are no more risks of root damage or other issues than those associated with traditional orthodontics. Since the forces used with 6 Month Cosmetic Braces are lighter and teeth are seldom extracted, there are actually even fewer risks involved with Six Month Braces orthodontics.
Q: Will I have to wear a retainer?
A: Yes, as with any teeth-straightening treatment a retainer is necessary to maintain the straighter position of your teeth. If you don’t want to wear a removable retainer, you can have a bonded fixed retainer placed. There are a variety of options that you can choose from according to your personal preference and situation.
Q: What's the catch?
