If so, ask your dentist about the Six Month Smiles® System. Six Month Smile® is a revolutionary short term orthodontic system that provides a fast and efficient way for adults to begin smiling with confidence. Rather than traditional orthodontics, which is used to correct your bite, Six Month Smiles® places emphasis straighter teeth and on cosmetic results. 

With an emphasis on correcting the teeth that show when you smile, this unique system uses clear brackets and tooth colored memory wires that blend exceptionally well with the surrounding tooth structure. The focus is on aligning the front 6 or 8 upper and lower front teeth that are most visible. Using gentle forces, the teeth are guided into position. The goal is to correct issues such as crowded, crooked, or spaced teeth without the noticeable look of traditional metal braces which are usually worn for up to two years. 

See a new beautiful smile, thanks to Dr. Fremont & 6 Month Smiles:

Six Month Smiles® corrects the cosmetic items that you would like to address it does not impact the functional or structural changes to the way your back teeth bite together. Most individuals come in to the office for adjustment of the wires approximately every 4 weeks.

The process is simple. After impressions are taken and sent to the lab, clear brackets are sent back to the dentist's office in custom trays ready for placement. Six Month Smiles® braces and wires are barely noticeable. They blend very well with the color of your teeth. Six Month Smiles® works quickly by focusing on moving the teeth that show when you smile without significantly changing your bite. The low force process moves teeth with little or no loss of tooth structure, allowing for shorter treatment times that are safe and relatively comfortable too.

As with all orthodontic treatment, a retainer is necessary to maintain the straighter position of your teeth. If you do not want to wear a removable retainer, you can have a bonded retainer placed behind your teeth. There are a variety of options that you can choose from according to your personal preference and situation.

Six months is the average treatment time. Most patients finish right around 6 months, but treatment times may range from 4-9 months.

The procedure is recommended for adults (15 years and older).

You dentist can help you determine if you are a good candidate for the Six Month Smiles® System.
