This is an orthodontic program intended to give you straighter front teeth in an average of six month’s time. Clear brackets are fastened to several front teeth along with a wire that also closely matches your tooth enamel. This setup works like traditional braces, but is far less noticeable. The brackets are adjusted every several weeks until you achieve your desired look.

The entire goal of Six Month smiles is to even out the teeth that show when you smile. An uneven smile line, slightly twisted teeth, and unsightly gaps could all be corrected with this abbreviated orthodontic system. An average of six months is typically all it takes to complete. Some of our patients see results even quicker than that.

Traditional braces are still an option for adults, but the benefit of choosing this method is that the orthodontics are usually:

  • Cheaper
  • Faster
  • More discreet
  • More comfortable

Six Months Smiles applies a very soft and gentle pressure to your teeth, but because only the front ones are getting the attention, they move quite rapidly.

After your treatment, you will likely experience:

  • Improved self-confidence
  • Easier brushing and flossing
  • Less stain accumulation between teeth
  • Decreased chances for developing tooth or gum disease in the treated area
