Straight teeth in six months.

An attractive smile in as little as six months is no longer a dream…it’s a reality. Speedy Smiles at Mountain Family Dental can transform your smile without wearing conventional metal braces. Ideal for adults with crooked, crowded or spaced teeth, the Speedy Smiles technique combines time-tested orthodontic methods with the use of high-tech arch wires to exert a light, continuous force to the move teeth into the desired position—quickly, gently and safely.

Unlike traditional orthodontic treatment which can take up to two years to complete, Speedy Smiles treatment is usually completed in 10 visits or less and in most cases is less expensive than traditional braces. Using tooth-colored brackets and a small nickel-titanium arch wire, the Speedy Smiles technique is far more comfortable and much less noticeable than traditional braces.
