Six Month Smiles® FAQs.

Invisible item
Straight teeth in 6 months? How?
Six Month Smiles® clear braces are safe, comfortable and provide quick results.  While the average case is completed in 6 months, short-term orthodontic treatment times are generally between 4 and 9 months. The main reasons for these short treatment times are:

  • The goal of most Six Month Smiles® cases is to give the patient a great new smile and to accomplish most, but not all, of what would be done with traditional orthodontic braces.
  • Six Month Smiles® brackets and wires are unique in that they are specific for short-term orthodontic treatment goals. The brackets and wires are engineered with a specific prescription and have short-term orthodontic unique properties.
What makes Six Month Smiles® unique?

Six Month Smiles® braces are very discreet. The clear ceramic brackets and white wires have been created to specifically address the unique treatment objectives of short-term orthodontics. By focusing on the teeth you can see when you smile and not making significant changes to the bite, we’re able to straighten teeth in an average time of 6 months.

Will I need to wear a retainer?

Yes, as with any teeth straightening treatment, a retainer is necessary to maintain the new, straight position of your teeth. There are a variety of retainer options you can choose from depending on your personal preference and lifestyle.

Does everyone really finish in 6 months?

6 months is the average treatment time. Most patients finish their treatment plan at this point, but treatment times may range from 4-9 months.

Is there a catch?

There’s no catch! Most adults are suitable for Six Month Smiles® braces. If you are 18 years old or above, with crooked, spaced or misaligned teeth and you’re not looking for a major alteration to your smile, this could be a fantastic option for you.
