For many patients who struggle with crooked, gapped, or misaligned smiles, treatment often seems just as bad or worse than the current state of their smiles. A mouth full of metal, months with diet restrictions, extra time spent on oral hygiene, and hours in the orthodontist’s chair, may seem like more trouble than they’re worth. Lucky for our patients, Boston Smile Center offers a wide variety of orthodontic treatment options to avoid a mouth full of metal, hours spent in the office, and any other concerns patients may have with traditional orthodontic treatment.

If you’d like to have a smile with straight teeth, but don’t want to contend with traditional braces that require so much time, then Boston Smile Center in Brookline, MA, may have the solution for you. Six Month Smiles®, as the name implies, straightens teeth in about six months. Dr. Alan Sasson or Dr. Ray Dempsey would be happy to talk to you about your orthodontic options and whether or not Six Months Smiles is right for you.
The Six Month Smile Advantage
Obviously, having straight teeth in about six months is a clear advantage of Six Month Smiles. But there is another advantage that is equally clear. Actually, this advantage is literally clear. Six Month Smiles uses clear brackets and tooth-colored wires that are practically invisible. And because Six Months Smiles braces are designed to straighten the teeth that are just in your smile zone—smile in the mirror and you’ll see what we mean—they are much more comfortable and less irritating than traditional braces.
Six Month Smiles braces use less force than other braces, too, so you experience less discomfort, as well. These braces use standard orthodontic mechanics, but because the emphasis is on the cosmetic appearance of your teeth rather than the position of your bite, the force required to move teeth is reduced.
Caring for Your Smile after Six Month Smiles
To maintain your straight smile, our dentists will want you to wear a retainer. You can wear a removable retainer or one that is bonded into place behind your teeth. And of course, be sure to continue your at-home hygiene routine of brushing and floss at least twice every day so your new straight smile is healthy and white, too!
