Six-Month Braces: Short Term Ortho System
Six-Month Smiles is a fast and cost-effective alternative to traditional metal braces. This treatment targets your teeth’s specific problem areas and gently shifts them into the desired position. It can take as little as Six-Months and costs far less than other treatments. Six-Month Smiles also match the color of your teeth, so your treatment remains discreet.
What Is Six-Month Smiles Short-term Orthodontic Treatment?
Dr. Tebbi offers a revolutionary orthodontic procedure that corrects crowded, overlapping, or oddly spaced teeth in just six months on average.
The Six-Month Smiles procedure is not only quick, but virtually undetectable. If you’ve been thinking about a better smile but were afraid to ask about braces, now is the time to talk to Dr. Tebbi or one of the team members at Advanced Dental Care about Six-Month Smiles.
Six-Month Smiles skips the metal appliances associated with traditional orthodontics for a more discreet treatment. This option treats your most visible front teeth using clear brackets and tooth-colored wires that are almost invisible. Continuous gentle pressure exerted by the specially-designed wires moves teeth quickly but comfortably to create a more uniform smile.
Why Choose Six-Month Smiles?
We see many patients who need to correct crooked teeth, but have concerns about waiting two years to see the results. If you have a family reunion, high school reunion, wedding, or major career event in the near future, it is possible to change your smile in time to make the best possible impression.
Here’s why Six-Month Smiles is a great choice:
· Treatment time is generally six months, a fourth of the treatment time of traditional orthodontics.
· The Lucid-Lok clear brackets and tooth-colored wires are nearly invisible.
· More comfortable than traditional braces.
· The low force and short treatment timeframe allows for better hygiene, while still provideing predictable results.
· Six-Month Smiles generally costs less than other orthodontic treatment methods.

Teeth Straightening & Six-Month Smiles FAQ
Q: How can teeth be straightened in only six months with adult braces?
A: The Six-Month Smiles technique employs the latest technology and techniques in dentistry to move your teeth quickly and safely with clear adult braces. The key components of the treatment are the use of unique, clear braces and a primary focus of moving only the teeth that show when you smile.
Q: Six months sounds good, but will I still have a mouth full of metal braces the whole time?
A: No! Six-Month Smiles uses clear braces that are barely visible to gently straighten your teeth.
Q: How are Six-Month Smiles braces more comfortable than regular braces?
A: Six-Month Smiles uses low force to move teeth gently. Many people think that the accelerated braces treatment means simply “tightening” regular braces to get the teeth moving, 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.
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 fewer risks involved with Six-Month Smiles.
Q: Will I have to wear a retainer?
A: Yes, as with any teeth-straightening treatment, a retainer is necessary to maintain the corrected 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.
