Six Month Smiles: Your Smile Restored in Just 6 Months?

Woman with Dental BracesSix Month Smiles braces are a fixed cosmetic brace. As the name suggests, these braces straighten your teeth in an average time of just 6 months. Increasingly adults are looking to straighten their teeth but they want to keep their braces discreet. Six Month Smiles can meet this need and could be the answer to all your teeth straightening worries. You can get this modern teeth straightening treatment at dental practices across Stevenage, including Smilecraft Dental Care.

Six Month Smiles braces straighten your top 2 to 4 front teeth, your bottom 2 to 4 front teeth or all 8 for the biggest improvement to your smile. They use tooth-coloured wires and brackets, so they are barely visible, while providing an effective and predictable result.

As well as this, the gentle forces and shortened treatment times with Six Month Smiles increase comfort and safety during your treatment. They are also comparatively less expensive than other cosmetic treatments, such as veneers, when it comes to enhancing your smile.

Six Month Smiles braces use modern methods to move your teeth quickly and safely. The key element of the treatment is the use of tooth-coloured fixed braces, designed to naturally blend in with your teeth.

Will my teeth really be straight in just 6 months?

Six Month Smiles are an accelerated fixed brace, with treatment times ranging from around 4 to 9 months. Some teeth, such as the small lower front teeth, take less time to move. Other teeth, such as the canines, may take more time. Experienced dentists are equipped to give a more accurate assessment of treatment times at your initial consultation.

Are they suitable for everyone?

If you are over 16, your adult teeth have fully come through and you have simple to moderate cases of overcrowding, crooked or gappy teeth, then you will most probably be suitable for Six Month Smiles.

If you have more complex issues, such as seriously overcrowded teeth or bite problems, you may need a different type of teeth straightening treatment.

If Six Month Smiles is the right treatment for you, you’ll get to enjoy the cosmetic benefits within the year. In the long run you’ll also find it easier to keep your teeth clean, which means your dental health will likely improve.
