Solutions for Adults

Thousands of adults want to straighten their teeth or enhance their smile cosmetically, but the thought of braces can be daunting.  Adults seek out straighter teeth through orthodontic treatment, yet they don’t want the distraction that traditional braces can bring to their careers and social lives.  Six Month Smiles at Cornelius Dentistry can help you aesthetically improve your teeth without the hassle of metal brackets and long-term treatment.

If you have healthy teeth and are simply looking for a way to feel more confident, Six Month Smiles may be a great fit for you.  You can make a positive change in your appearance and achieve the smile you’ve always wanted - on your terms.

How Six Month Smiles Works

The Six Month Smiles system uses tooth-colored brackets and state-of-the-art wires to move your teeth fast. The wires have "shape memory," which allows Dr. Woodruff to make fewer adjustments to the braces while still giving you dramatic results.  This memory wire uses slight tension and light force to move your teeth into position, avoiding injury to tooth ligaments that can occur with traditional braces and related tightening methods.  These injuries can also slow down the straightening process.  Six Month Braces uses a gentler method so that teeth can move quickly and comfortably.

Tooth-colored braces help disguise the brackets and wires so that they are less visible than metal brackets and wires that you may have had as a teenager.  This minimizes the appearance of braces so that you feel more comfortable when speaking, smiling, and laughing.  Others will focus on you and not your orthodontics.  

Treatment Time

Six Month Smiles provides patients with a straight smile in an average of just six months.  Your individual treatment time may vary somewhat based on how far your teeth need to move.  Once Dr. Woodruff has completed the initial evaluation, she can estimate the treatment plan specific to your needs.  Some cases require less than six months while some may require more time to achieve optimal results.


After your treatment is complete, we recommend removable or permanent dental retainers to help your newly straightened teeth stay put. Otherwise, you run the risk of your teeth shifting back to their original location.  We want your smile to continue to be beautiful for a lifetime.
