One of the first questions people who are getting braces ask our dentist is “how long do I have to wear these?” In most cases, the length of time for braces varies from person to person; however, Dr. Brian Han can shorten your treatment time with Six Month Smiles® in Fircrest, Washington. They get their name from the fact that on average, people only wear them for six months, as opposed to traditional braces that are often worn from 18 to 30 months. Six Month Smiles accelerates your alignment and is usually used for adults and teens aged 16 and up who need to straighten their teeth. Although six months is the average time, the entire course of treatment can range from four to nine months.
In addition to a much shorter treatment period than regular braces, Six Month Smiles are available with tooth-colored wires and clear brackets, which means that people may not even notice that you are wearing your braces.
