Is Six Month Smiles® Right For You?

Blue Back Ortho - Smile with Confidence

Six Month Smiles® might be a great fit for you if:

Your teeth have always bothered you but you never seriously considered having them fixed, until now.

Before now, none of the existing treatment options appealed to you.

You have
  • Crowded or crooked teeth
  • Spaces between your teeth
  • An asymmetrical smile (left and right sides are not identical)
  • Your gum lines are uneven
Minimal discomfort during treatment is important, as well as a relatively short treatment period.

Six Months Smiles® will give you a beautiful final result as we concentrate on what bothers you most about your smile. By focusing on your chief complaint, we are able to achieve short treatment times using light forces to gently guide your teeth into alignment. Our tooth-colored materials are almost invisible.

Can teeth really be straightened in just six months?

Yes, the usual treatment time is about six months. Six Month Smiles® uses the latest technology and techniques in dentistry. These techniques move your teeth quickly and safely with special tooth colored wires. There are some instances where treatment may exceed six months. Not every case is the same.

Please note that Six Month Smiles® Adult Braces are intended to straighten the teeth that show in your smile. They are not a substitute for comprehensive orthodontic treatment.

Will I have a mouthful of metal?

No ~ you will not! Six Month Smiles® dentists use tooth-colored braces that are barely visible. The wires are tooth-colored as well. These are nothing like metal braces!

Are these braces more painful than regular braces?

No, this technique uses light force to move your teeth gently and comfortably. Some patients may experience some temporary discomfort or have a "tightness" feeling.

Do Six Month Smiles® braces damage the teeth, roots or gums?

There are no more risks of root damage or other issues than those associated with traditional orthodontics. Since the forces used with Six Month Smiles® braces are lighter and teeth are seldom extracted, there are actually even fewer risks involved with Six Month Smiles® orthodontics.

Will I have to wear a retainer?

Yes, you will. With any teeth-straightening treatment, a retainer is necessary to maintain the straighter position of your teeth. You can wear a removable retainer or you can have a bonded retainer placed. There are a variety of options that you can choose from according to your personal preference and situation. Talk with your dentist.

Is there a minimum age?

The minimum age is 14, but this may vary depending on teeth and jaw growth. Consult your dental office.
