Six Month Smiles

Six Month Smiles is a safe and effective method for achieving alignment. It is a process that involves the use of clear wires and brackets, perfect for adults who may not be comfortable with the more conspicuous and traditional metal wires and brackets on their teeth. Six Month Smiles offers a discreet method of straightening teeth, and treatment time that is faster than traditional braces. The Six-Month Smiles system focuses mainly on moving the teeth visible when you smile. Low forces are used to move the teeth quickly and gently. While logic may tell you the system requires more tightening of the braces to move the teeth faster, this is actually not the case. Six Month Smiles uses the same orthodontic mechanics as regular braces but they are more comfortable than traditional braces. At Beechview, we know how important your smile is to your outlook on life. You want to look and feel your best. If misaligned teeth are keeping you from living life to its fullest, let us help you get them straightened, so you can keep smiling.

The treatment has modified the best attributes of braces to provide a common sense cosmetic alternative that fits ideally with patient’s lifestyles, and after the initial braces appointment, patients return every 4 weeks thereafter to receive a simple adjustment.
After the patient’s teeth have been aligned and set to their desired position, the braces are removed using a simple procedure and sufficient retention is provided. The patient is then able to enjoy a perfect smile without feeling self-conscious any longer. The goals of the treatment differ from those of conventional orthodontic practices and are not intended for time-consuming changes such as midline changes and altering angle class.
If you have cosmetic issues with your teeth that you would like to have corrected, you should strongly consider the procedure as a viable alternative to traditional orthodontic procedures. The new procedure can give you the smile you want in much less time – and at much less cost as well.
