Brace Yourself. Winter is Coming!
Six Month Braces

During the winter months, most of us spend a little more time indoors keeping out of the weather. Why not use some of that spare time to correct crowded, crooked, and gapped teeth?  Braces can help fix these problems, but most people don’t want a mouthful of metal for two years or more. This is why Palm Harbor Premier Dental offers 6 Month Braces to those who want to straighten their teeth and have a more beautiful smile in a fraction of the time.

We can straighten your teeth in only a matter of months. Using a series of invisible retainers instead of traditional metal brackets. Six Month Braces gets its name because most people obtain their desired results within that time. It may take a little less or more than 6 months, depending on the extent of repairs needed. Traditional braces can take two years or more to get the same results that Six Month Braces will also also achieve.

Traditional braces have metal wires that becomes loose after a few weeks and must be tightened by your dentist causing soreness and pain. The Six Month Braces use a memory wire that provides constant pressure during your treatment. As your mouth warms the wire, it tries to pull itself back into its original position. This aligns your teeth in the process. The brackets are clear and less noticeable on your teeth. Also, six month braces are more affordable than traditional braces due to the shortened treatment span.

Give your confidence a boost this winter! Don’t keep putting off a more beautiful smile because you don’t want unsightly and painful metal brackets. Contact Palm Harbor Premier Dental at (813) 289-0560 if you have been wanting a straighter smile or for more information about the Six Month Braces treatment.

Reasons for Six Month Smiles

Six Month Smiles re-position crooked or badly aligned teeth over a period of approximately 6 months. Most people that seek orthodontic treatment are concerned about the esthetics of their teeth. This is an ideal choice of treatment for those needing tooth correction without having to go through two or three years of treatment. The ultimate goal of 6 Month Braces is to move the teeth to their most desirable position in as little time as possible.

What Do They Look Like?

6 Month braces are designed to be as little noticeable as possible. The braces themselves are clear and the wires are white, making them nearly invisible!! Six Month Braces are hardly noticeable compared to traditional “Train Track” braces.

How Do They Work?

These discreet wires apply a constant force to the teeth to shift them into their desired position over time. This results in small, noticeable changes to your teeth. Once the treatment is complete, you will need to wear a retainer in order for your teeth to maintain their correct positioning. Retainers may be fixed to your teeth permanently or worn as a removable retainer.


The most obvious advantage of Six Month Smiles is faster treatment period. Other advantages are that they are relatively painless and a less expensive than most other treatments for braces. Six Month Braces can treat any of the following:

  • Misaligned Teeth
  • Crowded Teeth
  • Gaps Between Teeth
  • Crossbites
  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Can Affect Speech
  • Can Increase Salivation
  • Need for a Retainer Following Treatment
  • May Not Be Suitable Treatment for Everyone
    (Consultation Required for Suitable Orthodontic Treatment)
The Process

First, you will need an initial consultation to determine your orthodontic requirements. If it is determined that you are a good candidate for Six Month Smiles , you will begin a series of stages involving fitting and adjustments.

If you are in need of any dental work, you will need to have that work done prior to any orthodontic treatment. This is to ensure that your teeth are in good condition to receive the braces.

You will be fitted for your braces and then undergo a few adjustments to make sure of a correct fit. You will also be fitted for a retainer to prevent your teeth from moving back out of position once the treatment is complete.

Frequent dental visits are necessary to make sure your teeth are moving and cover dental care advice throughout your orthodontic treatment.
