Fast Track Your Braces with Six Month Smiles®

If you could complete orthodontic treatment in just six months, would you do it?

Short Term Braces In Scottsdale

Who has time for braces? All those orthodontic visits mean time off work. Add to that the painful tightening, restrictive rubber bands, and worst of all, sacrificing your sophisticated image for two years. Are straight teeth really worth the sacrifice?

What if our Scottsdale dental office could give you straighter teeth and a sensational smile in just six short months? We can!

183-day Braces

Six Month Smiles® features clear brackets and tooth-colored (nickel) wires for an inconspicuous appearance that’s nearly undetectable to onlookers. So, you can go to your power meetings, speaking engagements, and even have your photo taken, without worrying that adolescent-looking braces are all people see when you open your mouth. With low forces encouraging tooth movement and a brief treatment time that averages just 26 weeks or 183 days, Six Month Smiles® is comfortable, safe, and highly effective. It’s also more affordable than most orthodontic treatments or porcelain veneers.

What will you be doing in six months? Will you be smiling?

Why Get Braces Now?

If you’ve waited until you’re in your 20s, 30s, 40s, or even 50s or 60s, you may wonder, “What’s the point in straightening my teeth now?” Studies show that your smile is the second attribute people notice when they meet you; your eyes are the first. Research also tells us that people with a vibrant, attractive smile are considered more intelligent, successful, and friendly than others. So, regardless of your age, if you want to be regarded with respect, know that you will be judged, in part, on your appearance. More specifically, you’ll be judged on your smile.

Who’s a Candidate?

A quick consultation at Lifetime Smiles will let you know whether Six Month Smiles® is the right treatment for you. Generally, if you’re over 16 years of age, your jaws are healthy and properly aligned, and you have crooked, widely spaced, or crowded teeth, you’re probably an ideal candidate for Six Month Smiles®. Many of our patients were candidates for veneers, but they desired a less invasive and more affordable treatment option. Some had considered Invisalign, but they wanted faster results.

How Can Six Month Treatment Be Effective?

Don’t worry that wearing braces for just six months puts you at greater risk for relapse. The way Six Month Smiles® works is that treatment focuses primarily on the teeth that show when you smile, instead of repositioning molars, which affect occlusion but not your appearance. You will NOT require more frequent tightening visits, either. The mechanism behind Six Month Smiles® is the same as traditional orthodontics, but the focus is more specialized.

After you complete your treatment plan, we will provide you with a retainer. Worn as directed, the retainer will keep your teeth from shifting out of position in the future. For patients who worry that they’ll forget to wear the retainer, we can bond the appliance in place.
