Having straight teeth improves the appearance of your smile and reduces your likelihood of serious oral health problems later in life. Many patients, especially adults, are hesitant to seek orthodontic treatment, because of the extended amount of time they may have to wear traditional metal braces.

At Advanced Dentistry of Amarillo, Dr. Miller and Dr. Esler offer clear braces through the revolutionary system known as Six Month Smiles, which yields a successful orthodontic outcome of straighter teeth in a fraction of the time. Clear braces, such as Six Month Smiles, employ low-force straightening techniques. This state-of-the-art orthodontic technology uses transparent brackets and tooth-colored wires.

Why should I choose Six Month Smiles?

Our clear braces produce beautiful, straighter-looking teeth in a fraction of the time it takes for traditional metal braces or Invisalign to accomplish the same aesthetic goal.

Benefits of Six Month Smiles include:

  • Enhanced Comfort – Metal braces are known for causing irritation of the lips, gums, cheeks, and tongue. The brackets used in Six Month Smiles are more comfortable because of their low-force construction, as compared to traditional metal brackets.

  • Safer – Other orthodontic treatment methods have a higher risk of root damage or tooth decay. Patients with clear braces also have a significantly reduced risk of having teeth extracted.

  • Less Expensive – Six Month Smiles is less expensive than other clear treatment systems for orthodontic needs, such as Invisalign or ClearCorrect.

  • Great Results – While every patient is different, straighter teeth can be achieved in an average of six months using clear braces.

Are clear braces right for me?

We only recommend Six Month Smiles for patients who are at least 16 years of age and are dissatisfied with the appearance of their smile because of crooked teeth. This form of orthodontic treatment may not be ideal for patients that require realignment all of their teeth to fix a non-ideal bite.

Six Month Smiles is only available from a dental practice that has met the criteria to be a licensed provider of the treatment system. We are proud to offer this state-of-the-art treatment method as part of our commitment to excellence in cosmetic and comprehensive care.
