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.

Best Candidates

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.

Insurance Coverage

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.
