Is Six Month Smiles® right for you?

by

The best way to find the answer to that question is to contact a Six Month Smiles certified provider and schedule a consultation. However, by answering the following questions related to your lifestyle and your expectations this can help you determine if you should consider taking that next step.
QUESTIONS TO ASK THE DOCTOR DURING YOUR SIX MONTH SMILES CONSULTATION:
  1. After you take impressions of my teeth how long will it
    take to get my Six Month Smiles Patient Tray Kit™ back from the Six
    Month Smiles lab?
  2. After my teeth are straight are there any other cosmetic
    treatments that you would recommend for me such as whitening, bonding,
    or veneers?
  3. Based on your initial assessment, about how many months do
    you expect that I will wear Six Month Smiles braces? (average is six
    months)
  4. What type of retention do you recommend after treatment?
  5. I understand that Six Month Smiles will not correct a
    severe overbite or underbite. Do either of these factors exclude me as a
    candidate?
  6. Can you explain to me the differences between Six Month
    Smiles and traditional or comprehensive orthodontics? Which option is
    best for my situation?
  7. Do you have any “Before & After” photos that you can show me or photos of patients wearing Six Month Smiles braces?
  8. What types of payment options or payment plans do you offer?
  9. Can you check to see if my insurance plan will cover a portion of the cost?
  10. How soon can I come in for a records appointment?
