Six Month Smiles® braces is a system of cosmetic braces that uses clear brackets and wires that are almost unnoticeable at most distances. It is meant for adult patients who do not want to go through two years of comprehensive orthodontic treatment, but would still like to improve their smile and gum health in a short period (typically 4-9 months). You can see significant results with the system in just six months!
If you are a candidate for Six Month Smiles treatment plan, the dentist will take photos and an impression of your teeth. At your next visit, the clear brackets will be cemented to your teeth and the clear wires that move your teeth placed in the brackets.
Follow up appointments each month will allow the dentist to adjust the tension of the wires, which will shift your teeth into the desired positions. When the desired results have been achieved, the brackets and wires will be removed. You will be given a clear retainer to wear for a certain period during the day and then only at night to prevent your teeth from gradually returning to their previous positions.
Coverage will vary from policy to policy. We can confirm your coverage (if any) when you come in for a free Six Month Smiles consultation.
