What Is Six Month Smiles?

Six Months Smiles is an orthodontic solution for adults that uses tooth-colored wires and clear brackets to make your dental treatment virtually unnoticeable. Like traditional metal braces, Six Month Smiles applies gentle pressure to your teeth to move them into the correct position and straighten your smile. Unlike traditional braces, no one will notice you are wearing them.

Benefits of the Six Month Smiles system include:

  • Quickly straightens your smile
  • Tooth-colored wires and clear brackets and do not draw attention
  • Usually more comfortable than conventional metal braces
  • Can be more affordable than alternatives such as porcelain veneers

Treatment with these braces can take anywhere from four to nine months, but typically lasts about six months. These clear braces emphasize correcting the aesthetic imperfections of your smile, and are not ideal for realigning your bite. Since the system focuses on moving your front, most visible teeth, the process is quicker than alternatives that address the back teeth and bite alignment as well. If you require significant adjustments in your bite alignment, other orthodontic treatments may be more appropriate.

Am I a Good Candidate for Six Month Smiles?

Six Months Smiles is ideal for adults, ages 16 and older, who have gapped or crooked teeth but do not require bite alignment. You may be a good candidate for the treatment if you:

  • Are self-conscious about smiling, laughing or speaking in front of others
  • Have teeth that are overlapping or crowded
  • Have spaces in your teeth
  • Are seeking an affordable orthodontic solution to address minor cosmetic flaws

Six Month Smiles are designed to fit your lifestyle. During your consultation, Dr. Nathe will thoroughly examine your oral condition, discuss your aesthetic goals and provide recommendations that are best suited for your unique situation.
