What Are Accelerated Braces?

Six Month Smiles is an accelerated orthodontic system that can straighten teeth in as few as six months. The system works by focusing on the teeth that show when you smile, so Six Month Smiles is often referred to as “cosmetic braces.” The high-tech system works quickly and effectively to move your teeth into more ideal positions, giving you a smile that is more uniform. When your teeth are where they are supposed to be, it also means that your teeth and jaw can work more efficiently, so you may even notice things like less jaw pain or tooth grinding.

How Does Six Month Smiles Work?

Six Month Smiles has the look of traditional braces, but it uses advanced technology and state-of-the-art materials to drastically reduce your treatment time. The tooth-colored wires and clear brackets blend in with the teeth, making this a great option for those who do not typically like the appearance of traditional braces. By using low force, Six Month Smiles can correct teeth that are crowded, gapped, or crooked, as well as fix minor bite issues in about six months!

Throughout your treatment, you will need to come in for a adjustment appointment every four weeks. This allows our team to make sure your treatment is progressing as it should and make any necessary adjustments to your braces. Once your treatment is complete, we fit you for a retainer to hold the position of your teeth. This is an important part of the orthodontics process as it helps make sure your teeth do not move again after treatment.
