6 Month Braces is a revolutionary orthodontic service - Six Month Smiles™ - for adults who have, until now, felt like they were stuck in "cosmetic limbo."  Until now, if you had crooked teeth, there was a choice between Porcelain Veneers and traditional long-term braces (orthodontics).  Dr. Barr is a certified Six Month Smilesdentist.

Before Six Month Braces, there were two ways to straighten your smile:


Six Month "Fast" Adult Braces is an easy choice to make compared to the two previous alternatives in many cases. 


Dr. Barr,

 I want to sincerely thank you and your wonderful staff, Sandy, Jo-Ann and Gina, for giving me my beautiful new smile.  I have wanted straight, white teeth ever since I can remember, but always put other things first.  I truly believe everything happens for a reason, and the reason I didn’t have this done sooner must be because I was waiting to find your office!  When I found you on the internet and saw your ad for Six Month Braces, I thought, wow, I will have to check this out!  I am so happy I did.  I not only have beautiful straight teeth, but have found a dentist for life!

In the past, I hardly ever smiled showing my teeth and certainly never in pictures.  Now I can’t stop smiling!  This has truly changed my life and boosted my self-confidence beyond belief.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!! 
- Joanne L.

How Will 6 Month Braces Look? 

Naturally, for adults, this is a big issue.  You may remember the "metal mouth" look from years ago.  The good news is that today we have eliminated that look!  The  Six Month SmilesBraces technique uses tooth-colored (white) brackets AND wires.  They're barely visible!  Take a look at the photo below.  Can you see the braces on our patient, Leticia?  She competed in beauty pageants WITH her braces on!  And, she did very well!  Remember... most cases take only 6 months!

Why or When Would I Want 6 Month Braces?

Six Month Braces are appropriate for correcting spaces, gaps, crooked, or crowded teeth.  If the teeth that show in your smile aren't straight, 6 Month Braces may be the perfect solution for you. 

Imagine this:  Straight teeth in the time it takes between your regular check-up and cleaning visits! 

Many of our patients like to whiten their teeth after straightening them for a perfect and natural smile.

Are 6 Month Braces the Same As Regular Braces?

Yes and no.  6 Month Braces are very similar to conventional adult orthodontics as it pertains to brackets and wires being used.  The mechanism of moving the teeth is the same.  The difference between the Six Month Smilestechnique and conventional braces is the focus of the treatment.  With 6 Month Braces, we are focusing only on the teeth that show in your smile.  The goal of 6 Month Braces is to give you a smile you can be proud of in a reasonable amount of time.


Six Month Braces can be finished more quickly than traditional braces because we aren't focused on changing your bite.  Most people have no trouble chewing.  Their teeth function well, and their bites work fine.    Rather, we are focused on what you want.  Usually, that's improving the appearance of your smile.  Traditional adult orthodontics go beyond that, to perfecting your bite in your back teeth.  Six Month Braces is about what you want.

Will It Really Take Only 6 Months?

Most Six Month Braces cases will take about 6 months.  Some may take less.  A few may take more than 6 months.  A "long" case may take up to 9 months to achieve the goals.  But, it's rare.  The vast majority of cases take 6 months. 

Here's a recent case completed at Palm Beach Smiles in Boynton Beach.  Tiersa wanted to look great for her upcoming wedding and didn't have much time.  Porcelain Veneers would have to be rather aggressive, and 2 years of traditional braces was not an option for Tiersa.  Here are before and after photos of a 6 Month Braces case:

Are You Moving My Teeth Faster Than Normal Braces?
Will It Damage My Teeth?

Six Month Smiles uses very light and safe forces to move teeth at the same rate as traditional braces.  We are not moving them faster.  The difference between Six Month Braces and traditional braces is that we are simply ending treatment sooner.  Your front teeth (that show when you smile) move faster than your back teeth.  Traditional braces take longer because there is an additional goal of perfecting the bite in your back teeth.  6 Month Braces is not concerned with perfecting the bite in your back teeth, so we simply stop once the front teeth are positioned in a cosmetically pleasing arrangement.  So, the rate of tooth movement is the same, but the total treatment time is faster - about 6 months.  That's the difference in a nutshell!

So, there is no more chance for damage to your teeth or roots with 6 Month Braces than there is with traditional braces.

Will 6 Month Braces Be Uncomfortable?  Will It Hurt?

Most patients tell us that they feel some temporary "tightness" in their teeth.  Dr. Barr recommends over-the-counter medications like Advil or Motrin (Ibuprofen) for those rare cases that need some relief.  But, so far, none of our patients have actually needed to use any medications.  They tell us they "get used to them."  The good news is they will only have to be "used to them" for about 6 months!


What About Those "Invisible Braces" I Hear About On TV?
What's the difference?

Naturally, there is no "magic bullet" treatment that applies to everyone.  Each method has its advantages.  The advantage of the "Invisible Plastic Braces" (as seen on TV) is that they are, well... Invisible.  And, they truly are.  You can't see them.

The disadvantages of "Invisible Braces" as seen on TV are:

I've Got Crowns (or Veneers).  Can I Still Get Braces?

Yes.  Modern braces can be bonded to Ceramic Crowns and Porcelain Veneers just like natural teeth.


Will I Have To Wear A Retainer?

The short answer:  Yes.  That is true with any kind of braces.  But, the good news is that with the Six Month Smiles technique, you can have a permanent retainer bonded out of sight, behind your teeth.  So, you won't have to remember to put one of those old-fashioned retainers in every night when you go to bed.  With a permanent bonded retainer, it's always in, but you won't notice it.


What Kind of Results Can I Expect?

How Much Will This Cost?

Depending on your needs, the cost can vary.  However, it compares with traditional braces (perhaps a bit lower), while it is considerably less than "Invisible Braces" (as seen on TV).   And, Six Month Braces cost far less than Porcelain Veneers.  Payment Plans for Six Month Braces are available.  The best way to find out is to come by and let us take a look!
