"How would you feel if you could have straight teeth by about the time of your next cleaning?"
Straight Teeth. Less Time. Clear Braces for Adults.
There are several methods you can use to straighten your teeth, and we offer the least invasive ways available on the market today.
Six-Month Smiles is a great, fast and cost-effective alternative to traditional metal braces that targets your teeth’s specific problem areas and gently shifts them into the desired place. This treatment usually ends in as little as six months, costs far less and provides you the ability to eat and maintain good dental hygiene with very little oral irritation. Six-Month Smiles also match the color of your teeth and are rarely noticeable.
The other treatment we offer is Invisalign or Clear Correct, a popular teeth-straightening treatment that employs the use of clear plastic aligners instead of standard braces. The aligners are removable, nearly invisible and, much like Six-Month Smiles, target specific areas of your mouth for more accurate straightening results. Eating and brushing are also a breeze during the course of this treatment

Six Month Smiles in Encino
Are you an adult who wants straighter teeth, but doesn’t want to go through the hassle of all metal braces? Dr. Tebbi offers a revolutionary orthodontic procedure that corrects crowded, overlapping, or oddly spaced teeth on average in just six months. The Six Month Smiles procedure is not only quick, but virtually undetectable. If you’ve been thinking about a better smile, but were afraid to ask about braces, now is the time to talk to Dr. Tebbi, or one of the Advanced Dental Care team, about Six Month Smiles.
Considered a cosmetic dentistry procedure, Six Month Smiles allows you to skip the metal appliances of traditional orthodontics for a more discreet treatment. Six Month Smiles treats your front most teeth, and uses clear brackets and tooth-colored wires that are almost invisible. A continuous low force exerted by the specially designed wires moves teeth quickly but comfortably into a more desirable position
Why Choose Six Month Smiles?
We see many patients who need to correct the look of crooked teeth, but don’t want to wait two years to see the results. If you have a family reunion, high school reunion, wedding, or major career event in the near future, it is possible to change your smile in time to make the best possible impression. And aesthetics isn’t the only reason to straighten your teeth. Patients without overlapping or odd spacing are less at risk for decay and gum disease since their teeth don’t trap food and plaque, and are easier to clean. Here’s why Six Month Smiles is a great choice:
- Treatment time is generally six months, about ¼ the treatment time of traditional orthodontics.
- The Lucid-Lok clear brackets and tooth-colored wires are nearly invisible so you can smile during treatment.
- Adjustment appointments are fast and comfortable, and you need fewer since treatment time is dramatically reduced.
- The low force and short treatment timeframe allows for better hygiene, while the use of braces provides predictable results.
- Six Month Smiles generally costs less than other orthodontic treatment methods.

Teeth Straightening & Six Month Smiles FAQ
Q: How can teeth be straightened in only six months with adult braces?
A: The Six Month Smiles technique employs the latest technology and techniques in dentistry to move your teeth quickly and safely with clear adult braces. The key components of the treatment are the use of unique, clear braces and a primary focus of moving the teeth that show when you smile.
Q: Six months sounds good, but will I still have a mouth full of metal braces for the whole time?
A: No! Six Month Smiles uses clear braces that are barely visible to gently straighten your teeth.
Q: How are Six Month Smiles braces more comfortable than regular braces?
A: Six Month Smiles uses low force to move teeth gently. Many people think that the accelerated braces treatment means simply “tightening” regular braces to get the teeth moving, but that is not true. Six Month Smiles utilizes standard orthodontic mechanics, but with an emphasis on the cosmetic appearance of your teeth rather than the position of your bite.
Q: Do Six Month Smiles braces damage the teeth, roots, or gums?
A: There are no more risks of root damage or other issues than those associated with traditional orthodontics. Since the forces used with Six Month Smiles braces are lighter and teeth are seldom extracted, there are actually even fewer risks involved with Six Month Smiles.
Q: Will I have to wear a retainer?
A: Yes, as with any teeth-straightening treatment a retainer is necessary to maintain the straighter position of your teeth. If you don’t want to wear a removable retainer, you can have a bonded retainer placed. There are a variety of options that you can choose from according to your personal preference and situation.
