Six Month Smiles
Your smile is very important, as it is usually the first thing most people notice when they meet or see you. As it is a huge part of the first impression you give to others, crooked teeth may be making you feel self conscious of your appearance and perhaps even ashamed. The great news is there are various solutions to problems related to your teeth and smile. However, many of these take anything from 18 months to 2 or even 3 years before you see the results.
If you don’t like the idea of having metal brackets in your mouth and want straighter teeth faster, then Six Month Smiles may be the right option for you.
What Are Six Month Smiles?
A modern twist on orthodontics of old, Six Month Smiles feature the best aspects of traditional braces with modified materials and treatment to give you a sensible cosmetic solution that will fit in with your busy life.
By using tooth coloured wires and clear ceramic brackets, Six Month Smiles are an incredibly discreet way to get straight teeth. By focusing all of our attention onto the visible teeth that make up your smile, rather than changing anything with your actual bite, we can straighten your teeth for you in around six months.
Six Month Smiles braces are a new and cutting edge treatment. We are delighted to bring this great treatment option to our practice in Battersea. Please call us on 020 7228 2846 for more information.
How can you straighten teeth in just six months?
The latest advancements in dentistry techniques and technology are utilised in Six Month Smiles braces to move your teeth more quickly and safely that alternatives. The key to this treatment is the use of clear braces and the focus being on teeth visible when you smile, not the full set.
Six Months sounds amazing, but does that mean I will have a mouth full of metal the whole time?
No, as Six Month Smiles use clear braces with tooth coloured wiring, they straighten your teeth while being virtually invisible.
Are Six Month Smiles braces more Comfortable than traditional braces?
As they use low force to move your teeth comfortably, Six Month Smiles are more comfortable than traditional braces. The misconception is that accelerated treatment translates as “tighter” traditional braces to encourage the teeth to move faster. This is not the case, as Six Month Smiles still use traditional orthodontic mechanics, but emphasising on the aesthetics of your teeth rather than bite position.
Will Six Month Smiles Braces damage my gums, roots or teeth?
As Six Month Smiles braces are much lighter and few teeth are actually extracted, there are very few risks to the roots, teeth or even gums.
Do I need to wear a retainer?
As with all teeth-straightening treatments, a retainer is needed to keep your teeth in their straight position. If you would prefer not to wear a removable retainer, you can have a bonded retainer fitted.
