Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How can teeth be straightened in only six months?
A: The Six Month Smiles technique employs the latest technology and techniques in dentistry to move your teeth quickly and safely. The key components of the treatment are the use of special clear nickel titanium wires and a primary focus of moving the teeth that show when you smile. Treatment times vary between 4-9 months. Your dentist will inform you since everyone is different.

Q: Six months sounds good, but will I still have a mouth full of metal for the whole time?
A: No! Six Month Smiles dentists use tooth-colored braces that are barely visible. The wires are tooth-colored as well. These are nothing like metal braces!

Q: How are Six Month Smiles braces more comfortable than regular braces?
A: Six Month Smiles braces use low force to move teeth more comfortably. Many people think that the accelerated treatment means simply tightening regular braces to get the teeth moving faster, but that is not true. Six Month Smiles utilizes standard orthodontic mechanics, but with an emphasis on the cosmetic appearance of your teeth rather than the position of your bite.Discomfort is minimal as teeth are gently repositioned. No heavy forces are used. The treatment becomes easier and more comfortable day by day.

Q: Do Six Month Smiles braces damage the teeth, roots, or gums?
A: There are no more risks of root damage or other issues than those associated with traditional orthodontics. Since the forces used with Six Month Smiles braces are lighter and teeth are seldom extracted, there are actually even fewer risks involved with Six Month Smiles orthodontics.

Q: Will I have to wear a retainer?
A: Yes, as with any teeth-straightening treatment a retainer is necessary to maintain the straighter position of your teeth. If you don't want to wear a removable retainer, you can have a bonded retainer placed. There are a variety of options that you can choose from according to your personal preference and situation.

Q: What's the catch?
A: There is no catch. If you are an adult (15 years and older) with crooked or spaced teeth and you're not looking for a major alteration to your bite, this could be the solution for you! Most adults ARE candidates for Six Month Smiles.
