Six Month Smiles are clear braces that are designed to straighten the front most teeth within six months. There are several benefits to this orthodontic treatment. First, patients will be able to straighten their teeth without compromising style because of the nearly invisible look of these braces. Secondly, the low impact of the appliance allows for faster treatment with greater comfort than metal braces. Shorter wear time also means less money. If you or your child are interested in Six Month Smiles, call Merritt Island Center for Dentistry in Merritt Island today. Cosmetic dentist Dr. Dieter Burr will be happy to meet with you to see if this treatment is right for you.

"I have not been to a dentist in many years. I had to have a tooth extracted. All of the staff was very understanding and compassionate. If every dental practice was as caring as Dr. Burr I would have gone a long time ago."- T.D. / Facebook / Oct 13, 2019
"Dr. Burr's office and staff are wonderful. Like most people, I have a great deal of anxiety when it comes to dentists and when I expressed this to Dr Burr. The day of my appointment, he and his staff made me extremely comfortable and my procedure was done within a half hour. I am recommending ever one that I know to Dr Burr."- R.G. / Google / May 16, 2019
"I seen Dr Burr for what I thought might be a root canal. Turns out it was just a cracked molar and needed a crown. It was an easy fix! Dr Burr and his staff were amazing! They made sure that I was comfortable for the procedure. It only took 2 hours and my crown that was ordered came in, right on time. It fit perfectly and didnt need any adjustment. A great first time visit and experience. We will definitely be calling Dr Burr our family dentist."- R.K. / Google / May 03, 2019

I can’t rave enough about the care I receive here! I drive 2 hours from out of town just to come here for the quality care!"- S.K. / Facebook / Mar 25, 2019
Six Month Smiles offers adults and teens the both of best worlds. Not only do they straighten teeth, but they provide an ideal cosmetic solution as well. In addition, the low orthodontic impact allows for greater comfort and less wear time than Invisalign or conventional braces. The length of treatment does depend on the complexity of your case, and in the end, the results will yield a beautifully straight smile. Dr. Burr will discuss all the details during your private consultation at Merritt Island Center for Dentistry to help you make the best decision possible.
What to expect
Once you have undergone a thorough consultation with Dr. Burr and a treatment plan has been created, an appointment will be scheduled for your fitting. On the day of your Six Month Smiles installation, you will be seated comfortably in one of our private treatment rooms while the tooth-colored wires and clear brackets are placed. This process typically takes about 1 – 2 hours. You will return to our office about once a month to monitor your progress and receive adjustments. Brushing and flossing may be difficult at first, but our hygienists will educate you on how to best care for your teeth.
Once your teeth have aligned in their proper position and you are happy with your look, an appointment will be scheduled to remove your braces. Before they are removed, Dr. Burr will perform a final assessment to make sure everything is in order. After your braces are removed, you will be fitted for a retainer to prevent your teeth from shifting. A retainer can be fixed or removable, but regardless of the type of appliance you receive, a good oral care routine is encouraged to keep your teeth clean and healthy.
Typically, most dental insurances cover some of the costs of orthodontic braces. The coverage does depend on the type of braces, the extent of treatment, and your personal dental plan. Our office will call your insurance company to review all potential costs and coverage thoroughly to provide you with the accurate billing. We also offer several payment options to assist those who are paying out-of-pocket.
