“I am very proud to offer our patients such a conservative, permanent cosmetic option. I can help create the smile my patients want without them having to wear ugly metal braces for two years.” – Dr. Michelle Crow
6 Month Smiles™ – Cosmetic Braces New 6 Month Smiles™ – Straight Teeth in 6 Months with Adult Short-Term Orthodontics! Many people, especially adults 15 years and older, don’t pursue the straighter smile they desire because they think braces take two to three years and only use metal brackets and wires. Guess what? They don’t have to!
Dr. Michelle Crow is very pleased to be the first dentist in Everett to provide 6 Month Smiles™, the short term orthodontic alternative , that uses clear or tooth-colored brackets and small tooth colored, nickel titanium wires to straighten your teeth in less time.
6 Month Smiles™ uses low force to move teeth with minimal or no loss of tooth structure. By focusing on moving the teeth that show when you smile without making significant changes to your bite, Dr. Crow can safely and relatively comfortably correct your crooked or spaced teeth in about six months. Studies have shown that a healthy and attractive smile can boost your self-confidence, improve your personal and professional life, and enhance your overall well-being. Straight teeth can also make it easier for you to keep your teeth clean, healthy, and looking great!
ADVANTAGES to 6 Month Smiles™: * LOOK – The tooth-colored brackets and small, nickel titanium wires used for 6 Month Smiles™ are much less noticeable than regular braces. People will hardly notice that you’re wearing braces. What they will notice is your straight teeth afterwards! * FEEL – As with any orthodontic treatment, minor discomfort can be experienced. Because such low forces are used during 6 Month Smiles™ treatment, we are able to keep this discomfort to a minimum, to safely and effectively transform your smile!
* COST – Even though 6 Month Smiles™ offers the advanced benefit of being accelerated, they are less expensive than regular braces. Costs range from $2500 – $6500. We also offer flexible financing, so you can get the smile of your dreams on a plan that fits your budget.

Invisalign In the past, getting braces has meant years of painful adjustments and struggling with self-image. But since 1999, Invisalign has literally changed the face of orthodontics for over half a million satisfied patients. Instead of wires or bands attached to the outside of your teeth where the world can see them, Invisalign treatment utilizes cutting edge technology to prepare a series of clear plastic molds of your teeth during each stage of alignment. Every two weeks, we will check on your progress and give you the next mold, or “aligner,” to keep your treatment on track. The aligners are removable, making for easier eating, brushing and flossing. They move your teeth into place gradually. Treatment usually takes about the same amount of time as traditional orthodontics, but is far more comfortable. Invisalign can improve the smiles of anyone with crossbites, overbites, underbites, crowded teeth or teeth that are spaced too far apart.
