Six Month Smiles

Six Month Smiles is an innovative treatment the uses clear, fixed braces to create a beautiful, straight smile in half the time of traditional fixed braces. This treatment is much faster than conventional braces and this is because it concentrates solely on the front teeth without altering the bite.

Invisalign is a teeth straightening treatment that involves the use of custom-shaped, lightweight, clear aligners. Invisalign braces are created with the help of 3D imaging technology and have to be replaced every two weeks or so for effective treatment. This way teeth will gradually move into their final position. Because they are transparent, Invisalign aligners are virtually undetectable. They can also be removed for eating and cleaning. Invisalign need to be worn at least 22 hours per day for maximum effectiveness.

Inman Aligner

The Inman aligner is a powerful, removable teeth straightening treatment that helps move the front teeth into position in only a few weeks (6 — 18). The device consists of a set of powerful springs that pull together two aligner bows, exerting pressure on the teeth both from the back and the front.

All these options can provide effective teeth straightening for self-conscious teenagers and adults without anyone knowing that they are undergoing treatment.
