    • Q: How can teeth be straightened in only six months with adult braces?

      A: Austin 6 Month Braces uses light forces, nearly invisible clear brackets, and space-age wires that naturally work to move the teeth into the correct positions.  One of the reasons we can do this so quickly is that we are mostly moving the front teeth.  The teeth people see.   The goal is to get a great smile, in a short amount of time, as conservatively as possible.

      Q: Am I too old for braces?  

      A: We are often asked this question, and the answer is an emphatic NO!!!!

      Q: What if I had braces before?
