Six Months Smiles

Six Month Smiles is an orthodontic treatment that uses tooth-colored brackets and wires (that are nearly invisible) to rejuvenate the appearance of the mouth and adjust the position of the teeth. Six Months Smile is an orthodontic brace that is less visible than the traditional type of unaesthetic wires and braces to move the teeth into the desired position. The wires are fixed into place which allows the braces to constantly be working to adjust the position of the teeth. This also accounts for the reason the treatment can be completed in six months. It works mainly to correct the teeth that are visible to others.

This treatment is ideal for patients that have issues with the alignment of their front teeth. It is also a good choice for patient that want to see their final results in less time than it takes traditional braces to complete their work. It is also best for patients with mild to moderate orthodontic issues and those wanting to treat the teeth that show when they smile as opposed to the back teeth that are not visible.

The cost of Six Month Smiles is less than other treatments such as traditional braces and Invisalign. The cost runs from $3000-$4500 for treatment of both the upper and lower arches of the mouth.

Improvements in the appearance of the mouth can be seen in as early as six months. The patient will need to wear a retainer after the treatment to help maintain the results. If the retainer is not worn, the problem might occur again and need to be corrected with another orthodontic treatment. Patients need to practice good oral hygiene to make the treatments long-lasting.
