What is Six Month Smiles?

Six Month Smiles is a modified and shortened version of conventional braces treatment. Using today’s latest technology, dentists can fix your smile in around six months compared to the 1-2 year treatment time estimate of traditional orthodontics. By focusing only on the front teeth that show when you smile, Six Month Smiles can achieve dramatically beautiful results in a fraction of the time! Six Month Smiles is largely a cosmetic solution, so if you require significant tooth movement or corrections to your bite, a longer treatment that focuses on your entire mouth will be more fitting.

Six Month Smiles uses Lucid-Lok® clear brackets and tooth-colored wires to hide the otherwise obvious and distracting look of normal braces—a change most adults would prefer to maintain their professional appearance and confidence through treatment. Compared to traditional braces, Six Month Smiles typically come at a lower price tag so you don’t have to break the bank to straighten your smile.

Here’s a list of alignment issues Six Month Smiles can fix:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Slight over/underbites

Is Six Month Smiles Right for Me?

Six Month Smiles is a great alternative to traditional braces when your alignment issues are largely cosmetic, as they’re easier to fix in the shorter time limit. However, if you have a more serious problem with your alignment or bite, it may require the normal time frame of braces to be accurately completed. The severity of your case should be considered before making your decision.
