Six Month Smiles Dentist Jenison, MIYour smile is an expression of who you are. If you’re one of the millions of Americans who aren’t happy with the way their smile looks, consider Six Month Smiles® to get the beautiful, straight smile you’ll be proud to show off.

Six Month Smiles takes a modern approach to traditional orthodontic treatment by using the tried and true technology of braces with a cosmetic twist to fit your lifestyle. These nearly invisible braces are tooth-colored so you can smile with confidence, even during orthodontic treatment.

How noticeable are Six Month Smiles during treatment?

Traditional braces have been shown to be the most conservative and predictable way to achieve a great smile, but many people aren’t thrilled with the thought of having a mouth full of metal. With Six Month Smiles, you’ll still get the great results of dental braces while being able to smile with confidence during treatment. Six Month Smiles Lucid-Lok® clear brackets and Chameleon™ tooth-colored wires are barely visible. Plus, the average treatment time is only 6 months!

Are Six Month Smiles braces comfortable?

Yes! Even though your treatment is accelerated, Six Month Smiles braces focus on the cosmetic appearance of your teeth rather than the position of your bite, so it can use low force to move teeth and there’s no extra “tightening” involved.

Will Six Month Smiles damage my roots or gums?

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.

Am I a candidate for Six Month Smiles?

If you are 15 years or 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, but only your dental professional will be able to decide if Six Month Smiles is right for your specific needs.
