Six-month braces are a short-term orthodontic process that allows a patient to get the beautiful, straight smile they deserve without wearing traditional braces for 2-3 years. For many adult patients, this is the ideal solution to the crooked teeth, spaces or gaps that they’ve been embarrassed about for years!
Unlike with traditional braces, the focus of six month braces is not to fix the bite but is instead to improve the aesthetics of the front teeth. The focus is only on straightening the teeth that show when you smile. This is achieved using a combination of brackets and wires to move the teeth, similar to traditional orthodontics. The brackets and wires are tooth colored (white) and are barely visible.
