Six Month Smiles
What are Six Month Smiles?
Six Month Smiles is an orthodontic system that is useful for straightening your smile. If your teeth are crooked, crowded or misaligned, this system can be a helpful option for improving the look and even quality of your teeth. Six Month Smiles is ideal for patients who are over the age of 16. The system is virtually invisible to the naked eye, since clear brackets and tooth-colored wiring is used.
Why would Six Month Smiles be needed?
The reason you may need or want Six Month Smiles is because your teeth are crowded, crooked or otherwise misaligned. You might be feeling badly about your appearance and know that you need a change. Six Month Smiles is ideal for improving your confidence while simultaneously making it easier for you to care for your teeth. Straighter and more aligned teeth are easier to floss and brush, which means fewer cavities and issues with both gingivitis and gum disease.

Who's a candidate for Six Month Smiles?
Because Six Month Smiles works in just six months, it’s more suitable for older teens and adults.

What happens during Six Month Smiles treatment?
The first step is a consultation with Dr. Letran. This consultation involves an exam, x-rays and impressions to take molds of your teeth. We then apply clear brackets to each tooth as well as a tooth-colored wire that will run across the brackets. The wire helps to apply gentle pressure to the teeth to put them into more proper alignment. You will need to come back into the office regularly to have the wire adjusted or changed. You can expect to see results in just weeks and your treatment will be finished in just six months.
