What is Six Month Smiles?
Six Month Smiles is a form of orthodontic treatment that allows patients to achieve beautiful teeth straightening in a much shorter time than traditional braces. In fact, like the name suggests, on average, patients complete treatment in about six months. (Some may take more time depending on the level of misalignment).
Six Month Smiles is a great treatment for patients who have mild to moderate misalignment and do not wish to spend years wearing conventional braces. Six Month Smiles uses clear brackets and tooth-colored wires to reposition the teeth that are visible within the smile, making the treatment discreet, fast, effective, and invaluable.
But, how do they look?
While Six Month Smiles does straighten with a wire and bracket system, they do blend in with the teeth for a very discreet appearance. In certain instances, we may even be able to provide Six Month Smiles as a lingual straightening treatment, meaning the brackets and wires are disguised on the back of the teeth and invisible in the smile. Regardless of whether they are on the front or back of the teeth, Six Month Smiles treatment is far less noticeable than traditional braces.
Ok, great. What are the benefits?
If your interest in Six Month Smiles is piqued so far, let’s proceed to the benefits. As with any dental procedure, patients interested in a treatment want to find out what the benefits are and if they are a good candidate.
During a consultation, our team will evaluate the smile to determine if you are an appropriate candidate for Six Month Smiles. In most situations, cases of mild to moderate misalignment can be treated using Six Month Smiles. The advantages of this treatment include:
- Faster treatment time than traditional braces
- Clear brackets and tooth-colored wires for less noticeable braces
- Often costs less than traditional braces due to shorter treatment time
- Changes and adjustments are easy
- Treatment from your Philadelphia, PA dentist versus having to go to an orthodontist

Results from Six Month Smiles
You may be wondering, will choosing a faster treatment produce the same results as years spent in traditional braces? Good news! Treatment with Six Month Smiles is just as effective and long lasting as conventional braces from an orthodontist. Plus, after treatment, patients will be given a retainer to wear overnight, just like they would receive from an orthodontist. This retainer allows patients to retain the results from Six Months Miles overnight.
Does Six Month Smiles address overcrowding?
We do see patients who do not have enough room in their mouth for all the teeth, which can result in overcrowding. During the consultation process, we can take X-rays and determine if extraction of any teeth prior to orthodontic treatment is appropriate before moving forward with Six Month Smiles.
