What would you like for Christmas? No, it’s not too early to ask that question.
Would you like a trip somewhere? Tickets to a concert?
How about a beautiful, straight smile instead? If you doubt that last one is possible, then we welcome you to learn about Six Month Smiles at our offices in Naples and Fort Myers, FL.
This is primarily a short-term orthodontic treatment that can produce cosmetic changes to your smile in about six months. That’s why now is a perfect time to get started if you would like a new smile in time for the holiday season.

See The Difference
Like traditional braces, Six Month Smiles uses brackets and wires. Like traditional braces, those brackets are bonded to your teeth, and they work with the wires to pull your teeth where they should go to give you a straight smile.
This technique can be used to fix crowding, crooked teeth, gaps between teeth, overbites, and other bite alignment issues. So what makes it different from other braces?
As we noted above, Six Month Smiles is primarily a cosmetic service. As a result, you don’t use this to move all your teeth. Instead, these braces are focused on moving just the most visible teeth in the front of your mouth.
These teeth are also smaller and lighter than the teeth in the back of your mouth. That allows them to be moved a little more easily and in a shorter amount of time.
The time of treatment averages around six months. It can vary by a few months depending on the type of changes you want to make and the severity of your particular issues.
You also should know that Six Month Smiles uses brackets that are clear. This makes them less noticeable than metal braces, which many patients appreciate.
Six Months Smiles has helped several of our patients at both our Naples and Fort Myers locations. This may be exactly what you need to achieve your goals for your smile.
You also may want to consider one of our other short-term orthodontic options.
Fastbraces® uses a unique triangular bracket. This applies pressure to your teeth in a different way than traditional rectangular brackets. When used in combination with advanced archwires, Fastbraces can move your teeth in a fraction of the time of standard braces. In fact, some patients can complete their treatment in as little as four months.
If you prefer a more discreet option, Invisalign® may be what you would prefer. This system does away with brackets and wires in favor of clear aligners. When placed over your teeth, most people won’t notice you are wearing them. When used as directed, they can improve smiles in about a year.
