Six Month Smiles®
Clear braces for adults
Six Month Smiles® uses clear braces to straighten teeth in an average of six months. Dr. Woods is a long-time provider of Six Month Smiles®.
Unlike the traditional metal braces, Six Month Smiles® braces blend in colorlessly with your teeth using tooth-colored wires. They focus only on straightening teeth that show when you smile, and not the position of your bite, so they work faster than traditional braces.

Advantages of Six Month Smiles® over other options
Results in six months by focusing on your smile
When you choose the Six Month Smiles® straightening system, you’ll be wearing tooth-colored braces to gently align your teeth in an average time of only six months. A far reduced treatment time is possible because Six Month Smiles® only focuses on teeth that show when you smile.
By comparison, traditional metal braces align your entire bite with an average treatment time of 2 to 3 years. That’s 4 to 6 times longer than Six Month Smiles®. Clear plastic aligners routinely take 12 to 18 months and are removable, so the treatment time can vary depending on the user.
Six Month Smiles® braces cost less
Cost for orthodontic treatment depends on the patient’s needs and the location of that treatment; however, Six Month Smiles® braces cost 20-30% less on average than unsightly, traditional metal braces or plastic aligners.
Six Month Smiles® braces are unobtrusive
Six Month Smiles® braces often go unnoticed, as do the unique tooth-colored nickel titanium wires the braces use. As a result, your braces will hardly show in everyday casual conversation.
Six Month Smiles® work for almost everyone
The Six Month Smiles® system won’t correct serious bite alignment problems. But like traditional braces, they can be used by almost every adult, age 15 or older. The Six Month Smiles® system uses standard orthodontic mechanics but with an emphasis on cosmetic appearance instead of bite positioning.
Six Month Smiles® will typically straighten the teeth everyone sees when you smile. By comparison, clear aligner therapy only works for certain types of cases, sometimes requiring months in metal braces at the end of aligner therapy to finish the treatment to the desired result.
