What's the difference between Invisalign and Six Month Smiles?

woman putting on invisalign clear aligners in wilmington deInvisalign and Six Month Smiles involve the movement of your teeth without cosmetic improvement. Invisalign accomplishes this by using a series of clear aligners.  Six Month Smiles uses wires and clear brackets to achieve this goal.  

Although the movement of your teeth may be achieved with either system in about six months, treatment time is typically 18 to 24 months since you need to wear a retainer to keep the teeth in their new position, until the bone hardens around them.  Both Invisalign and Six Month Smiles are a permanent and functional solution for straightening teeth.
