Most adults who have crooked or crowded teeth would rather go without treatment than put up with a mouth full of metal. But the days are long gone when metal braces were your only option.

We have seen some really incredible advances in dental materials and technology in recent years. This has led to improvements in just about every area of dentistry, including our approach to orthodontic treatment. Today you have the option of choosing Six Month Smiles, a fast treatment that will allow you to enjoy a straighter smile in as little as six months.

What Makes Six Month Smiles Different?

  • Most adults who seek orthodontic treatment do not want or need to address problems with their dental bite like underbites or overbites. Six Month Smiles works in exactly the same way as traditional brackets and wires, but the process is shorter because we only address the esthetics of the teeth that show when you smile.
  • Six Month Smiles are also designed with your lifestyle in mind. Instead of conspicuous metal brackets and wires, Six Month Smiles uses clear brackets and tooth-colored wires to move your teeth gently and discreetly.
  • Since treatment times are shorter, Six Month Smiles tends to be less expensive than traditional orthodontics. However, be sure to consult your dentist about exactly what is included in treatment so you are not surprised with unexpected costs.
