If you’ve been told that you need braces, but you’ve never wanted to wear them because of their appearance, Six Month Smiles® is the perfect solution! These clear braces or aligners are comfortable, convenient, and discreet, allowing you to achieve a stunning smile. 

Lexington Family Smiles has many years of experience improving smiles. We fit Six Month Smiles® aligners or clear braces to your specific needs to straighten your teeth comfortably and discreetly. Here is everything you need to know about Six Month Smiles® treatment. 

What Is Six Month Smiles®?

Six Month Smiles® is a modern dental treatment that focuses on the front six top and/or bottom teeth. The aligners are designed to re-align teeth, close gaps, and even fix some underbites and overbites. Six Month Smiles® performs in the same manner as conventional braces, but with some key differences. The clear braces are more discreet compared to traditional braces that use silver wires and brackets. Six Month Smiles® aligners are removable and comfortable. They work with the same properties as memory foam in that they mold to the shape of your teeth comfortably. 

How Does Six Month Smiles® Work?

There are two methods to achieve the results you want in just 6 months. There are clear aligners and clear braces.

Clear Aligners

Six Month Smiles® clear aligners use the latest modeling techniques and 3D technology. Dr. Moulton will work closely with you, as well as the Six Month Smiles® lab, to render a photo of how you want your teeth to look once you have finished your treatment. A set of aligners will be created, which will move your teeth gradually toward the desired position. Your teeth will be straight when you finish your last set of aligners.

Clear Braces

Dr. Moulton will assess your situation and discuss your options. If you have a more complex alignment issue, Six Month Smiles® clear braces may be suggested. We will focus on the teeth that show when you smile. The brackets and wires are clear or tooth-colored so they are very discreet. Braces are always the most effective way to move teeth comfortably. And it’s only six months. You can do it!

How Long Does It Take?

The time it takes to straighten your teeth and improve your smile is in the name. Six Month Smiles® on average can improve your smile in six months. Most patients complete their treatment in six months, but treatment can range from 4 to 9 months. This is something we will discuss with you during your consultation.

Is Six Month Smiles® Suitable for Everyone?

Six Month Smiles® is suitable for patients 16+ years old. A large number of orthodontic issues can be corrected with Six Month Smiles®. However, not everyone is going to be a suitable patient. This is because it is not always the best option for more complicated problems. This is why the best thing to do is get in touch and book a consultation. Dr. Moulton will be able to assess the condition of your teeth and make his recommendation on the best treatment for you. 

Six Month Smiles® is not suitable for children. It is only suitable for patients who have fully grown teeth.
