You went through 2 years of orthodontic treatment as an adolescent, so it feels very frustrating that your teeth have shifted and you find yourself feeling self-conscious about your smile again. Granted, you lost your retainer and weren’t consistent about wearing it when you had it; but you don’t want to endure years of wearing unsightly metal braces again. Especially not when you’re meeting with new clients. Six-Month Smiles in Jacksonville may be one quick and effective solution for your needs. Here’s how it works.

What is Six-Month Smiles?

Six-Month Smiles is an orthodontic treatment that does utilize bracket and wires, but in a whole new way that provides better efficiency and discretion. Instead of using metal braces, Six-Month Smiles uses brackets and wires that are clear and blend seamlessly with your smile.
It also focuses on your sight line, which is your front six teeth and the ones you show most when you smile. Because treatment is very specific, it can typically be completed in a few months rather than years, hence the name Six-Month Smiles.

Is Six-Month Smiles Right for Me?

Because Six-Month Smiles is specifically designed for your sight line, it may not be the right treatment for everyone. While it can’t correct complex bite issues, it can be very effective for issues like:

  • Teeth that overlap
  • Midlines that aren’t aligned with the facial midline
  • Spaces or gaps between teeth

Six-Month Smiles works well for adults with slight misalignment issues, or who may have had previous orthodontic treatment. It moves your teeth quickly and provides the discretion that adult patients appreciate.
