WHAT IS SIX MONTH SMILES?
Six Month Smiles® is a modern twist on tried-and-true orthodontics. There is little debate within the orthodontic community that braces are the most widely used and most effective method to give patients straight, healthy teeth and a beautiful smile. Six Month Smiles has taken the best aspects of braces and modified the treatment and the materials to give adults a common-sense, cosmetic solution that fits your lifestyle.
Here is what makes Six Month Smiles so innovative…

HOW DOES SIX MONTH SMILES WORK?
Six Month Smiles™ use low force to move teeth more comfortably. Many people think that the accelerated treatment means simply “tightening” regular braces to get the teeth moving, but that is not true. Six Month Smiles™ utilizes standard orthodontic mechanics, but with an emphasis on the cosmetic appearance of your teeth rather than the position of your bite. Discomfort is minimal as teeth are gently repositioned. No heavy forces are used. The treatment becomes more comfortable day by day. With the use of a Nickel Titanium White Wire, the teeth move to the shape of the perfect arch form of the wire. With clear brackets placed, the general public can barely tell that you have braces on. Plus since they will only be on for 6 months, you’ll be so happy how quick and effective the treatment will turn out.
