Six Month Smiles®: Clear, Discreet Braces to Straighten Your Teeth Quickly and Effectively

If you wish to straighten your most visible teeth quickly and discreetly, Dr. Joe McIntyre and Dr. Dan Whiting provide Six Month Smiles® at our office in Bridgewater, VA. The system is similar to standard braces, but treatment time is shorter and the hardware is more discreet, focusing exclusively on straightening your front teeth with the use of clear brackets and wires. At Smiles for Life, Dr. McIntyre and Dr. Whiting will carefully determine your candidacy for this innovative treatment.

Is Six Month Smiles® Right for You?

These issues include slight overlapping, as well as rotated, gapped, or tipped teeth. Six Month Smiles® is not designed to correct severe malocclusion concerns or conditions such as overbite or underbite. For these issues, we offer other orthodontic options like traditional braces and Invisalign®.

How Does Six Month Smiles® Work?

Six Month Smiles® uses the same principles as standard braces. First, Dr. McIntyre and Dr. Whiting will attach clear Lucid-Lok® brackets to each of your teeth before connecting the brackets with a tooth-colored wire that will exert pressure on your dental arches. At regular intervals, you will come in for a checkup so your dentist can monitor your progress and adjust the wire appropriately. Many patients assume that because Six Month Smiles® has an accelerated treatment time, the braces will place greater pressure on their teeth. However, these braces will exert just as much pressure as a standard appliance and will not damage your teeth or dental roots. 

If you want a faster, more convenient option to correct cosmetic alignment issues that affect your front teeth, you may be a candidate for Six Month Smiles®.

Once your braces come off, your dentist will help you choose a retainer that is comfortable and supportive in maintaining your results. 

The Benefits of Choosing Six Month Smiles®

As the name implies, the most obvious benefit of Six Month Smiles® is the expedited treatment timeline. While traditional braces typically take 18 to 36 months to complete treatment, this innovative option can achieve comparable results in a fraction of the time. Additionally, Six Month Smiles® is more discreet than traditional braces because the clear brackets blend with your teeth, so you can feel less self-conscious about your appearance. Most importantly, Six Month Smiles® works! After treatment, you can expect much straighter teeth and an accompanying boost of self-confidence. Get ready to enjoy smiling again during family photos, job interviews, and time spent with friends.
