Accelerated Braces FAQs

Two Month Smiles - Accelerated Orthodontic System™ is a cosmetic dentistry result using your own natural teeth by realigning, reshaping and whitening. It is the natural alternative to porcelain veneers. Accelerated Orthodontics with Accelerated Braces focuses on the teeth that show when smiling and does not generally correct major bite issues. It is not the same as traditional orthodontic treatment. Significant improvements can be made rapidly and comfortably. In most cases Accelerated Orthodontics with Accelerated Braces as an alternative to porcelain veneers or dental veneers is usually a superior cosmetic dentistry option due to the reasonable balance of cost, time and conservation of healthy tooth structure.

What is Two Month Smiles –Accelerated Orthodontic System™?

Two Month Smiles - Accelerated Orthodontic System™ is our trademarked version of a cosmetic dentistry smile makeover using your own natural teeth. It was created as an alternative to dental veneers and long term orthodontic treatment. It consists of specialized systems of realigning, reshaping and whitening your teeth.

How is this Different than a Conventional Porcelain Veneer Makeover?

People have a misconception that porcelain veneers are easy and quick: two short visits, no discomfort, simple, easy and worry-free. The reality is that dental veneers take multiple visits over a period of months, with needles and anesthesia. You need to wear plastic or acrylic temporary teeth while the veneers are being made. Often the shade is not quite right and they need to be remade (unless you are doing dental veneers on all of your teeth–very expensive!) requiring more time in the temporaries. On top of this you need to watch what you eat forever! You can be a dinner party and all of a sudden your front dental veneer comes off and you need to excuse yourself and leave the party! The revolutionary Cosmetic Smile Makeover system that we offer uses your own natural teeth, is finished in just a few office visits, with no needles or anesthesia needed…and you never need to worry about what you eat.

Who is a Candidate for this Treatment?

Anyone who would like to look better, save money, save time and avoid aggressive treatment is a candidate. The majority of patients desiring a Smile Makeover or thinking about porcelain veneers and dental veneers are excellent candidates.

Is the Treatment Affordable?

Yes! Not only is the treatment affordable, it is only a fraction of the cost of placing porcelain veneers on the teeth. These savings multiply over time, because this smile makeover uses your own natural teeth. Dental veneers need to be replaced from time to time at additional expense.

How can it be done in 2 months?

The Two Month Smiles - Accelerated Orthodontic System™ utilizes the latest technology combined with time tested orthodontic techniques to move your teeth quickly, safely and comfortably.

Does the System use Heavy Forces to Move the Teeth?

No! Actually with the Two Month Smiles - Accelerated Orthodontic System™ we use a very low force-high resolution technique. You might think that braces need to be tightened more to get the teeth moving. Research has shown that heavy forces actually slow down tooth movement.

Does the Treatment Damage the Teeth, Roots, or Gums in any way?

No! The causes for the above complications are individual biology and high forces over a long period of time. The Two Month Smiles - Accelerated Orthodontic System™ uses very low forces with a short treatment duration to safely move the teeth.

Is the Treatment Painful?

No! Pain is caused by heavy forces. Two Month Smiles - Accelerated Orthodontic System™ uses low forces to move the teeth, not heavy forces that cause pain. This treatment is more comfortable than porcelain veneers. No anesthesia is needed.

Do I Need to Wear Braces for my Smile Makeover?

Not necessarily. Depending on your preferences, we have metal, clear and a braceless system. We can also use lingual braces which are placed behind your teeth so no one can see them.

Do you ever extract teeth with the Smile Makeover?

We very rarely extract teeth using the Two Month Smiles - Accelerated Orthodontic System™

Will have to wear a retainer after my smile makeover?

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 at night, you can have a very small and comfortable bonded retainer placed behind the teeth. There are a variety of options that you can choose from according to your personal preference and situation.

What’s the catch?

There is no catch. If you are an adult (15 years and older) with crooked or spaced teeth and you’re not looking for a major alteration to your bite, this could be the solution for you! Most adults ARE candidates for Accelerated Braces.
