What are the benefits of Six Month Smiles®?

The brackets and wire are made of discrete materials unlike typical orthodontics. The treatment time is considerably shorter than other teeth straightening treatments taking between 4-9 months. The treatment is generally less expensive than other options for straightening teeth. Less force is used to move your teeth, thus less discomfort and focuses on the cosmetic appearance of your teeth rather than the position of your bite.

Will I have to wear a retainer?

After the teeth are straightened, a retainer is necessary to maintain the position of your teeth. There are 2 options to maintain the position of the teeth, including placement of a removable or fixed retainer. Using clear braces, they discretely and gently move the teeth into correct alignment.
