Invisalign and Six Month Smiles

Have you considered having your teeth straightened but hate the idea of going through long, drawn-out treatment with metal braces? Many of us grew up thinking that the only solution for crooked teeth was to endure years of uncomfortable treatment with traditional braces. But now it’s possible to attain the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted quickly and comfortably.

Six Month Smiles and Invisalign clear braces are amazing new short-term orthodontic treatments that have changed the way we address the problem of misaligned teeth. Now, depending on your needs, we can straighten your smile in as little as six months.

Six Month Smiles Clear Braces

Do you have a big event like a wedding or reunion coming up? Maybe you’d like to tweak your smile just a bit and finally fix those crooked front teeth.

Six Month Smiles clear braces are barely noticeable, easy to wear, and more affordable than traditional braces. Best of all, they can easily help you achieve a beautiful smile transformation in months, not years.

You may wonder how they can work so quickly, but the secret is that they are designed to fix only the teeth that show when you smile. Since we’re just correcting cosmetic problems like large gaps or crooked teeth, treatment times are shorter than those with other orthodontics.


Invisalign is another popular short-term orthodontic treatment that can correct a variety of alignment issues. Using clear plastic aligners, Invisalign gently moves your teeth into their ideal positions.

There are no wires and brackets, making Invisalign aligners virtually invisible. Once Dr. Bushong develops a treatment plan, you will receive custom-made plastic aligner trays that you wear for about two weeks while the aligners gradually reposition your teeth.

There are several benefits to treatment with Invisalign:

  • Shorter treatment times than with traditional braces
  • Smooth plastic aligners eliminate irritation
  • Removable for eating, brushing, and flossing
  • Virtually invisible aligner trays won’t mar your appearance

Unlike bracket-and-wire braces, though, the results are immediately visible each time you move to the next set of trays. You will stay motivated because you’ll see progress consistently as you move through treatment.

Treatment times vary based on the extent of misalignment, but desired results can usually be achieved in about a year for adults. For teens, the length of treatment is comparable to that of traditional braces.

We can provide you with the most appropriate treatment by taking time to discuss your goals and talking to you about all your options.
