SIX MONTH SMILES – STRAIGHT TEETH. LESS TIME. CLEAR BRACES

ARE YOU EMBARRASSED OR SELF-CONSCIOUS about your smile? If so, you’re not alone. Perhaps you’re one of millions of adults who would love having straighter teeth, but you feel like you’ve missed the chance.

A Different Way of Viewing Orthodontic Treatment

Do you instinctively cover your mouth when you laugh, talk or smile? Many people feel trapped because they don’t want to wear metal braces as adults. Or, they’re concerned that correcting the problem will be invasive or cost prohibitive.

Now, there’s an effective, affordable, safe solution for cosmetic braces that will fit your lifestyle.

Six Month Smiles® is a short term orthodontic treatment that’s a modern twist on traditional orthodontics. This system has taken the best aspects of traditional braces and modified the materials and treatment to give adults an alternative cosmetic solution.

Here’s Why Six Month Smiles Is So Innovative…

  • Typical treatment time is just six months!
  • Clear brackets and tooth-colored wires are hardly visible!
  • Our patient tray kits ensure fast and comfortable appointments.
  • The Six Month Smiles system is usually less expensive than veneers or traditional braces.

Two Frequently Asked Questions & Answers

Question: “So how are teeth actually straightened in just six months?”
Answer: This system employs the latest clear adult braces technology to move teeth safely and quickly. Also, its focus is primarily on those teeth that show when you smile, which shortens the treatment time.

Question: “Will I still have a mouth full of metal braces?”
Answer: Nada. Six Month Smiles uses clear braces that are barely visible.
