So I just discovered the “Six Month Smiles” program offered by some dentists. I was wondering if anyone has done it before and if it has worked for them.
My teeth aren’t perfect. They are a little over crowded and need some fixing. I really like this program idea since it should only last 6 months.
What do you think? You can find the link for it online-through google.

I’m actually 4 months into it right now, and it’s made a huge improvement. I go back in three weeks to get the third wire put on (three progressively thicker wires put on every other month) and they should be off sometime in March!
A little background: I had full braces when I was in middle school. I wore the rubber bands, I did what I was supposed to…until it came time to wear the retainers. I stopped wearing them, and my teeth moved. It was 100% my own fault. I went to a cosmetic dentist, and told him I wanted Invisalign, because no way in heck was I going to go through braces again. He told me it would cost three times as much and take 2 years to fix the crowding/minor shifting of some teeth (one tooth in particular had moved back a few millimeters and was increasingly frustrating for me). He then told me about Six Month Smiles, and here I am.
I actually think they’re fantastic. They’re as invisible as braces get (I have them on in my profile picture…if you look close you can tell, but they definitely aren’t like the metal braces). They definitely move your teeth pretty quickly, and as long as you don’t have major adjustments to be made, you should be good!
Feel free to respond or PM me if you have any more questions!

Well I’ve never had braces, but I hope the consultation will bring good news!
I just hope this six month process doesnt damage my teeth in the long run.

I did it when I was 24 to restraighten some teeth and it was done in 5 months and my teeth look amazing. People compliment them all the time… They also usually come with whitening so when you get them off your teeth look sooooo good!

- Wedding: September 2010 - Angel Orensanz Foundation
I sure did, and the results were amazing! I highly suggest it. I never had braces before and I had a huge gap where a baby tooth that wouldn’t fall out was pulled because it crowded out the adult tooth. I looked like a hill billy and I wanted to push back my wedding date until I could get the tooth fixed bc I hated my smile.
WELL! They said it would take more like 10 months (the 6 is not a hard figure, it depends on what has to be corrected) and I was ready to go in 5. The bottom came offentirely, and the top stayed on another two months after the wedding.
Best part? They took them off 2 days before the wedding, and put them back on 3 days later, no extra charges associated. You would not believe the difference. Picture perfect.I highly recommend it, but don’t waste any time!
