Treatments > Six Month Smile

Many adults spend their entire lives covering their mouths when they laugh, smile or talk. They feel stuck because they do not want to wear metal braces for years or they are concerned that other corrective procedures could be too invasive or too expensive. Now, there is an effective, safe and affordable cosmetic solution that fits your lifestyle.

A revolutionary combination of proven orthodontic techniques, modern materials, and innovative thought - Six Month SmilesŪ utilizes specialized clear braces to gently straighten and align teeth in an average time of just six months.



What is 6 Month Smiles?

6 Month Smiles is the latest technique for straightening teeth in a fraction of the time it would take with traditional techniques. Six Month Smiles uses clear braces to gently straighten teeth in an average time of six months.

By focusing on the teeth that show when you smile and not making significant bite changes, we can comfortably straighten your teeth and give you the attractive, pleasant smile you've always wanted.

Q: How can teeth be straightened in only six months?

Six Month Smiles employs the latest technology and techniques in dentistry to move your teeth quickly and safely. The key components of the treatment are the use of special nickel titanium wires and a primary focus of moving the teeth that show when you smile.

Q: Six Month Smiles sounds good, but will I have a mouth full of metal for 6 months?

No! Six Month Smiles treatments use tooth-coloured braces that are barely visible. The wires are usually tooth-coloured as well. These are nothing like the classic train-track metal braces!

Q: Are 6 Month Smiles more comfortable than regular braces?

Six Month Smiles Braces 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.



Q: Will I have to wear a retainer after 6 Month Smiles?

Yes, as with any teeth- straightening treatment, a retainer is necessary to maintain the new, straighter position of the teeth. You can choose to have a fixed retainer bonded to the back surfaces of your teeth or a removable retainer that you would wear at night to prevent the teeth from moving back after completion of treatment with Six Month Smiles braces.
