Six Month Smiles Brace system uses a clear fixed wire which is fixed to a metal bracket.

There are several issues that adults tend to have with traditional orthodontic treatment. Because of the visibility of braces, adult patients may feel self-conscious about their appearance. The duration of treatment can be another deterrent. Because the traditional method addresses the entire mouth, orthodontics may need to be worn two years or more.

Our patients appreciate the accelerated orthodontic system we offer. An innovative solution to adult orthodontic issues, Six Month Smiles has taken the best orthodontic principles and has modified treatment to be faster and more efficient.

Discreet Orthodontic Treatment

With Six Month Smiles, our patients find the solution they need to address their oral health and aesthetic concerns. This system has been designed with the adult in mind, understanding the importance of discretion. Brackets and wires that are coloured to blend in to the natural shade of enamel are affixed to the anterior teeth (those that are visible when you smile). This is the primary focal point of treatment, the appearance of the smile.

Gentle force is applied via a specially-designed wire. The continual pressure on teeth moves them into the desired position. Because the focus is on the front of the mouth only, we are able to achieve the desired result in about six months. For some patients, treatment takes only a few months; for others, as many as nine months may be needed.
