There are many options available to a dentist or orthodontist to help you straighten your teeth, but conventional orthodontics can take anything from 18 months to three years to complete. With 6 Month Smiles, as the name suggests treatment is complete in an average of just six months. Depending on the amount of correction that is required, some people complete their treatment in just half that time, and the vast majority of cases are complete in a maximum timeframe of nine months.
These braces aren’t designed for major orthodontic correction to the bite (how the jaws meet) but are perfect for mild to moderate cosmetic correction. Unlike traditional metal braces, 6 Month Smiles are comprise clear brackets and special tooth-coloured nickel-titanium wires, which means that they blend in with your teeth.
Most patients at our Weybridge dental practice also agree that treatment with 6 Month Smiles is more comfortable than conventional orthodontics. A lot of people wrongly believe that treatment is achieved so quickly by tightening regular braces to move the teeth in a shorter time span, but that is not the case. In fact, 6 Month Smiles use a low force to move your teeth more comfortably, and use the traditional principles of orthodontics, with the emphasis on the cosmetic appearance of the teeth.
These braces also focus primarily on the front teeth – those in your smile line. At Danny de Villiers Dentist in Weybridge we welcome new patients for 6 Month Smiles consultations – this treatment is suitable for patients aged 15 and over who need mild/moderate cosmetic correction.
At the end of your treatment you will need to wear a retainer. We offer a number of subtle retainers, both fixed and removable, at our Weybridge dental practice.
