Six Month Smiles has taken the best aspects of braces and modified the treatment and the materials to give adults a common-sense, cosmetic solution that fits your lifestyle. Here is what makes Six Month Smiles so innovative…

  • Six Month Smiles Lucid-Lok™ clear brackets and Chameleon™ tooth-colored wires are barely visible
  • Use of braces has shown to provide the most conservative and predictable final result
  • Six Month Smiles Patient Tray Kits™ ensure that your appointments are fast and comfortable
  • Low forces and short overall treatment times increase comfort, safety, and hygiene
  • Six Month Smiles is typically less expensive than traditional braces, aligner therapy, or veneers
