6 Month Smiles at All Smiles
6 Month Smiles Adult Braces is a revolutionary orthodontic service for adults who felt they would need to wait 2 years with fixed braces. Until now, if you had crooked teeth, there was only a choice between Porcelain Veneers and traditional long-term braces (orthodontics).
Benefits of Six Month Smiles
Traditional long-term adult orthodontics may take one to two years, or even more in some cases, to straighten all your teeth. Understandably, many adults simply do not want to wear braces for that length of time.
Six Month Smiles Adult Braces is an easy choice to make compared to the two previous alternatives in many cases.
Are Six Month Braces the Same As Regular Braces?
Six Month Braces are very similar to conventional adult orthodontics as it pertains to brackets and wires being used. The mechanism of moving the teeth is the same. The difference between 6 Month Smiles Braces and conventional braces is the focus of the treatment. With 6 Month Smiles, the focus is only on the teeth that show in your smile and not on changing your bite. It addresses the cosmetic issues of orthodontics and its goal is to give you a smile you can be proud of in a reasonable amount of time.
Too much space between teeth. An esthetic problem that can also compromise the effectiveness of chewing.
Not enough spacing between teeth; teeth overlap. Can make it hard to brush and floss, thus leading to tooth decay and gum disease.
Teeth off center; center of upper and lower teeth are not aligned. Can be an indication of improper bite, which may lead to pain and further issues.
What do 6 Month Smiles Braces look like?
Six Month Smiles uses tooth-colored (white) brackets and wires. They’re barely visible! They are appropriate for correcting spaces, gaps, crooked, or crowded teeth. If the teeth that show in your smile aren’t straight, 6 Month Braces may be the perfect solution for you.

Does 6 month Smiles Move Teeth Faster Than Normal Braces and Does It Damage Them?
6 Month Braces uses very light and safe forces to move teeth at the same rate as traditional braces. The teeth are not being moved faster. The difference between 6 Month Braces and traditional braces is that the treatment is completed sooner. Your front teeth (that show when you smile) move faster than your back teeth. Traditional braces take longer because there is an additional goal of perfecting the bite in your back teeth. 6 Month Braces is not concerned with perfecting the bite in your back teeth, so the treatment stops once the front teeth are positioned in a cosmetically pleasing arrangement. So, the rate of tooth movement is the same, but the total treatment time is faster – about 6 months.
RotationTeeth are turned clockwise or counterclockwise. Can make proper oral hygiene difficult and may lead to tooth decay.
