Six Month Smiles

What is the Six Month Smiles system?

Six Month Smiles braces are an alternative to the traditional metal braces. They can help patients to achieve results in as little as six months Where the traditional system uses metal posts and wires, the Six Month Smiles system makes use of small tooth-coloured wires that allow for more discretion while the braces are in place.

There is minimal discomfort felt. Any that is experienced will be related to patients getting used to wearing the braces, and of course once the teeth start to gradually move into position. Teeth are moved gently, but at a faster steady rate compared to other orthodontic options.

This braces system uses the standard orthodontic mechanics that get results, but offers an emphasis on the cosmetic results. Traditional braces can be used to fix overbites, underbites and other jaw concerns. Six Month Smiles braces fix largely cosmetic issues.

This orthodontic solution makes use of the latest in orthodontic technology and dental techniques. Patients will benefit from safe and quick results.

What are some of the other orthodontic options?

There are several other orthodontic solutions available. Each has its own pros and cons. We find that many of our patients are interested in comparing Six Month Smiles vs. Invisalign.


Both types of braces offer wearers a discreet way to get a beautifully straight smile. Perhaps the primary difference is that Six Month Smiles braces are fixed to your teeth for the duration of the treatment. The Invisalign system uses a series of removable trays that will need to be switched out on schedule, every few weeks.
Both types of braces are very effective at helping patients to get straight teeth. However, it can take a bit longer to achieve the desired results with the Invisalign system.

The benefits offered by the Invisalign tray-based system can make it a great choice for some patients. Others may find that the Six Month Braces system is a better choice because patients will see results much sooner.

    What are the advantages to Six Month Braces?

    Perhaps the best advantage to this system is discussed in many of the positive 6 Month Smiles reviews. The short amount of time that it takes for patients to see results is a clear advantage to this orthodontic solution.

    While other orthodontic solutions provide their own benefits, being able to experience results in 4-6 months can be very appealing to someone who is looking for rapid results. Business professionals, as an example, may be looking for the quickest and most discreet way to get cosmetic results.

    This braces system is a good choice

    This braces system is a good choice for adults who are interested in correcting gaps between their teeth.

    The Six Month Braces system offers cosmetic results for patients looking simply to straighten their teeth and close those gaps between teeth.

    Six Month Smiles system impacts

    Traditional braces can adjust your bite and help to align all of the teeth in your mouth, versus just the ones visible when you smile. Because the Six Month Smiles system impacts  just the cosmetic, it’s able to achieve much faster results for those who are fitted with the braces. This system is not recommended for children or teenagers. Traditional braces or the Invisalign system are a much better solution for the still growing and changing mouths of younger patients.

    Six Month Smiles before and after photos will offer you an idea as to just how fast patients can see results with this system.

    Another positive consideration is that this orthodontic solution is quite often a more affordable solution than some of the other types of braces we can offer.
