How Six Month Smiles Work

Orthodontics with Six Month Smiles are designed to straighten only the teeth that show when you smile. Some people’s teeth are crooked because of an improper bite; thus, traditional braces are necessary to realign the bite as well as straighten teeth. With Six Month Smiles, we can give you the straight and beautiful smile you want without needing the time required to correct a bite problem. Because the focus of Six Month Smiles is purely aesthetic, your treatment time will be far shorter than that required with traditional braces. As the name suggests, Six Month Smiles will deliver your straight smile in approximately six months. Your dentist will be able to determine if Six Month Smiles is appropriate for your orthodontic needs.

Orthodontic Comfort

Most of our Six Month Smiles patients report that these braces are quite comfortable. That’s because this orthodontic system uses low force to gently move your teeth. The shortened treatment time does not mean that your Six Month Smiles braces will need to be tighter in order to move your teeth. To the contrary, because Six Month Smiles does not treat your bite but only the cosmetic appearance of your teeth, these braces are comfortable.

Six Month Smiles Process

Of course, you will need to attend regularly scheduled appointments with Dr. Buck during your orthodontic treatment. At the initial visit, we’ll use the Six Month Smiles Patient Tray Kits™ to accurately place your brackets and wires. These customized trays contain all of the materials Dr. Buck needs. At subsequent appointments, you’ll only need simple adjustments. Once your treatment with Six Month Smiles is complete, the braces are easily removed. You will need to wear a retainer after treatment in order to keep your teeth in their new and proper position.
