What Is Six Month Smiles?

Six Month Smiles® is a modern twist on tried-and-true orthodontics. There is little debate within the orthodontic community that braces are the most widely used and most effective method to give patients straight, healthy teeth and a beautiful smile. Six Month Smiles has taken the best aspects of braces and modified the treatment and the materials to give adults a common-sense, cosmetic solution that fits your lifestyle. Here is what makes Six Month Smiles so innovative …

  • Average treatment times of only six months
  • Six Month Smiles Lucid-Lok™ clear brackets and tooth-colored wires are barely visible
  • Use of braces has shown to provide the most conservative and predictable final result
  • Six Month Smiles Patient Tray Kits™ ensure that your appointments are fast and comfortable
  • Low forces and short overall treatment times increase comfort, safety, and hygiene
  • Six Month Smiles is typically less expensive than traditional braces, aligner therapy, or veneers

If you're still unsure, read what one of our patients, Gabriel Garonzik had to say.

“I cannot express enough how satisfied and happy I am of the results of my teeth after getting 6 month smiles at Dr. Coronel’s office.  Dr. Coronel does superb work and goes above and beyond to achieve the best results for his patients.  Not only does he do great work, he takes his time and addresses any concerns you might have.

Before getting the 6 month smiles braces, I had very crooked teeth and my canine teeth protruded outward.  I was very embarrassed to smile and always felt self-conscious about my teeth.  This has all changed about 1 month ago, now that I have my braces off.  Because my teeth were very bad, I had them on a little longer than 6 months, but I can’t complain because I would’ve had traditional braces on for 3 to 4 years.  If you are thinking about getting braces, I strongly recommend checking out 6 month smiles at Dr. Coronel’s office.  Thanks again Dr. Coronel, Joanne, and staff!”
