If you’re one of the many adults who never wore braces as a child, but you’ve lived with crooked, widely spaced, or overlapping teeth, consider Six Month Smiles®. Perhaps you did wear braces in your youth, but your teeth have since shifted – and you want your beautiful smile back. Six Month Smiles® is a short-term orthodontic treatment that uses inconspicuous braces to quickly move front teeth into healthy, attractive alignment. Dr. Detienne offers Six Month Smiles® in her Madison, GA dental office. Schedule your consultation now, and find out if this accelerated orthodontic procedure holds the key to your new smile.

Who Should Pursue This Treatment?

If you are looking for a quick and comfortable alternative to straighten your teeth, Six Month Smiles® may be the solution for you. Six Month Smiles® is ideal for most adults 18 & over who want a faster option than 12 months with aligners or two years with traditional braces. It is the quickest option to permanently realign front teeth. However, Six Month Smiles® is more affordable than other orthodontic therapies because it is faster and requires fewer dental appointments. Since the treatment focuses on repositioning the teeth that show when you smile, it will not address malocclusion that affects your molars. After a complete complimentary evaluation, Dr. Detienne can let you know whether you are a good candidate for Six Month Smiles®.

How Six Month Smiles® Works

Like traditional braces, Six Month Smiles® uses brackets and wires, along with gentle, consistent force, to shift teeth into proper position. Unlike traditional braces, however, Six Month Smiles® brackets are clear, and the wires are made of tooth-colored nickel-titanium, which is virtually invisible next to natural dental enamel.

Benefits of Treatment

Compared to other orthodontic therapies, Six Month Smiles® offers many benefits.

  • Because wires blend with white tooth enamel and brackets are clear, Six Month Smiles® is rarely noticeable. You’ll retain your mature, professional appearance while undergoing treatment.
  • Treatment usually lasts just six months – that’s only a fraction of the time required for other therapies.
  • Because treatment time is so brief, Six Month Smiles® costs less than clear aligner systems and conventional orthodontic braces.
  • Studies show that braces offer the most predictable treatment outcome.
  • You won’t have to visit an orthodontist. The entire therapy is performed by Dr. Detienne one convenient location.
  • What to Expect During Treatment

    During the first visit, Dr. Detienne will secure your brackets and wires. Then, every four weeks, you’ll return for adjustments. Using custom Patient Tray Kits by Six Month Smiles® make these periodic checkups efficient. Most cases are finished in approximately six months, though some require a bit shorter or longer treatment times. Once your braces come off, you’ll wear a retainer as instructed to keep your teeth in proper position. (A retainer is necessary following any orthodontic treatment, including traditional, short-term, and aligner treatments.)
