A woman with a nice smileSix Month Smiles® is an advanced orthodontic treatment option that achieves results in approximately six months. Clear brackets and tooth-colored wires are used in order to keep the treatment as discreet as possible. We've helped numerous patients in the Bridgewater area achieve healthy, beautiful smiles thanks to this revolutionary and quick procedure.

Patients often ask us how much Six Month Smiles® costs and if their dental insurance will cover the procedure. Let's take a moment to go over the basics regarding these topics.
