We find it quite common for new & existing patients to come see us as they would like to have their teeth straightened, but they are unsure which system will be the most suitable for them. This often leads to comparing two popular systems such as 6 month smiles and damon braces etc.
With modern day orthodontic technology it is now possible to achieve excellent teeth straightening results that traditional metal braces may of taken longer to complete, or even required extractions prior to treatment. In some cases with damon braces it might be possible to straighten your teeth (that would of required an extraction or two) without having to have that tooth extracted. This is because the damon system is very good at giving patients a broader smile, which in return, creates more space in the mouth for teeth to move into. Every patients case is different, and what is needed, will vary from person to person. If you do not need a broader smile and you are interested in a faster treatment, then the 6 month smiles brace may be ideal for you.
This system has been designed to be a cosmetic brace. What this means is, it focuses on straightening the crowns of the teeth, which are the visible parts. This will give you a nice straight smile, but it won’t treat the roots of the teeth, so it will only be a cosmetic smile.
If there is no need for you to have straight roots, then a cosmetic smile will be fine as it won’t have a detrimental affect on your health and you will have achieved the results you want.
The damon system are very much an advanced fixed brace as it will treat both the roots and crowns of the teeth, which will give you a naturally straight smile. This system does have the advantage of creating broader smiles if needed, but will take longer to complete than the 6 month braces system.
