Our Clear Braces are for adults (16+) with crooked, spaced, or misaligned teeth. We use discreet clear braces and tooth-colored wires. Barely noticeable. The average time is only 6 MONTHS!
Our Braces are barely noticeable, especially from a close or far distance. We use discreet clear brackets and tooth colored wires.
For over 12 years, Six Month Smiles has used tried and true orthodontic techniques to create over 150,000 new smiles.
Short-term ortho avoids the most time-consuming changes, such as altering Angle Class and making significant midline changes.
Brackets come pre-positioned in custom indirect bonding trays. This makes bracket placement remarkably easy and efficient.
Most Dentists offer payments plans that will determine the best payment plan that fits into your lifestyle and addresses your needs.
After you get trained, the first step is to take records on the patient (including impressions, x-rays, and a complete exam). After the records appointment, the case is submitted online and the patient’s impressions are sent to Six Month Smiles (digital or PVS). Once your case is received, our team of orthodontists will create a treatment plan and 3D simulation for you to review. After your approval of the treatment plan, our team of specialists will fabricate the case.
Aligner System: our team of specialists will print and label each aligner tray and package the items into our Aligner Patient Tray Kit. This includes a patient take home guide and bag they can use throughout treatment. Once the Patient Tray Kit has been assembled, it is returned to your office ready to use. After the initial placement of the aligners, your patient will switch out their aligner trays every 2 weeks. You will set up adjustment appointments every 2-4 weeks, depending on the patient and treatment plan. You can use the last aligner tray to order removable retainers for your patient from Six Month Smiles.
Clear Braces System: our lab specialists fabricates your custom indirect bonding tray, making bonding the braces to the patient's teeth remarkably easy, efficient and stress-free. The bonding trays, appropriate tooth-colored wires, ties, and other needed materials are packaged into our Patient Tray Kit. When the patient comes in for their braces-on appointment, the Patient Tray Kit is retrieved and the process begins. After the braces on appointment, the patient is seen every 4 weeks, for a simple adjustment visit. Once the teeth are in the final position, the braces are easily removed and adequate retention is provided. The patient is able to enjoy a smile that looks great and no longer makes them feel self-conscious. Our system is safe, straight-forward and patient focused.
Six Month Smiles brackets and wires have been created to specifically address the unique treatment objectives of short-term orthodontics. Affecting desired tooth movements while reducing undesirable ones utilizing straight wires (no bending!) and shorter treatment times requires proprietary, patented designs. The unique shape memory wires work in conjunction with the pre-positioned brackets to allow for the desired results to be achieved easily and predictably.
Lucid Lok™ Brackets. Our unique clear brackets are specifically designed and allow dentists to obtain guidedorthodontic treatment goals with precision and efficiency. The angulations, in-out dimensions, and off-sets are specific for these cosmetically focused cases. Also, their uniquely clear translucency blends seamlessly with surrounding tooth structure… and patients love that!
Lucid Lok™ Wires: Our wires are tooth colored shape memory wires that are highly active and provide consistent force levels to gently straighten and align teeth. The unique archform of Lucid Lok™ wires provides for broad but appropriate arches and minimizes the need for IPR in short-term orthodontic cases.

At the time of submitting a case you will have the opportunity to indicate if you need the case returned by a certain date.
