Six Month Smiles
For years, a straight, beautiful smile seemed out of reach for many patients because braces just seemed too inconvenient and awkward. Fortunately, modern dentistry has developed orthodontic options that make a straight smile more convenient and attainable for just about anyone.

Benefits of Six Month Smiles
By opting for orthodontics with Six Month Smiles, you can enjoy many benefits that are not available with other orthodontic systems.
As the name suggests, the average treatment time with Six Month Smiles is approximately six months. It could be a little shorter or longer depending on your individual needs.
Clear Braces and Wires
By using clear braces and a tooth-colored wire, your treatment will be far less noticeable than with metal brackets and wires.
No Tooth, Tissue, or Root Damage
Six Month Smiles uses constant low force pressure to move teeth into alignment without damaging your teeth, gums, or roots in the process. Since treatment times are short, it is easier to maintain good oral hygiene.
How Six Month Smiles Works
Once you have an orthodontic evaluation in our dental office, our dentist will take x-rays and impressions as well as collect any other data necessary to plan your treatment. After the planning phase, we will place your clear brackets and tooth-colored wire on your teeth and begin treatment.
We will monitor your treatment closely to make sure you enjoy a great outcome. Regular adjustments to your braces will keep your teeth moving toward their ideal location.
Once we complete your treatment, we will provide a retainer to keep your teeth from shifting back to their original location. This is an essential step in the treatment process, and your compliance will protect your investment and keep your new smile looking its best.
