For straight, appealing teeth within months, Six Month Smiles® clear braces are an effective orthodontic treatment. Like Invisalign®, Six Month Smiles provides a way to straighten your teeth without metal.
If you live in Fairfax, Fairfax Station, Burke or elsewhere in Virginia, Dr. Pamela Marzban provides Six Month Smiles clear braces in your area. She can determine the best way to create the smile you want.
Improve Your Smile in Six Months
The Six Month Smiles system has many advantages, including:
- Straightens your teeth rapidly
- Clear brackets and tooth-colored wires do not attract attention
- Tends to be more comfortable than traditional orthodontics
- May be less expensive than other options like porcelain veneers
Treatment with these braces tends to take anywhere from four to nine months, but the average treatment length is six months. The rapid treatment time is not due to increased force. Instead, these clear braces work faster because of gentle pressure exerted mostly on the front, most visible teeth. Metal braces tend to take longer because they focus on repositioning the bite, which requires some time.
Six Month Smiles braces are less noticeable. Six Month Smiles has clear brackets and tooth-colored wires, which do not stand out like metal. Clear braces cause less distraction when you smile, so you can enjoy greater confidence throughout your treatment.
Is Six Month Smiles Right for You?
These clear braces have been the ideal treatment for many of our adult patients. Crookedness, crowding and other tooth misalignment can often be corrected with these clear braces. Six Month Smiles may be right for you if:
- You want straighter teeth, but do not want to wear metal braces.
- You want to have a new, beautiful smile quickly.
- Your tooth flaws are mostly cosmetic and you do not have severe bite problems.
Although Six Month Smiles focuses on moving the most visible teeth, it can also provide some degree of bite improvement. If your bite is significantly misaligned, these clear braces may not be the best option for you.
The only way to know whether these clear braces will work for you is to consult a dentist providing them. Dr. Marzban has treated many of our patients with Invisalign, Six Month Smiles and other options. She can determine the right treatment for you.

If you have severe bite alignment issues that need addressing in addition to straightening your teeth, then Six Month Smiles® may not be for you.
