Using 6 Month Smiles cosmetic braces to maximise your smile

When it comes to braces, 6 Month Smiles are one of the fastest-acting and most discreet fixed appliances available. At Danny de Villiers Dentist in Weybridge we have used these subtle braces to improve the alignment of scores of patients’ teeth. If you are interested in rapid cosmetic teeth straightening treatment, read on to discover how 6 Month Smiles could be the answer to your prayers.
six month smilesBraces: no longer just made from metal
A lot of adults dream of straighter teeth, but still think fixed metal braces are the only option. It’s not difficult to see why these are often considered incompatible with a professional adult lifestyle – after all, seeing them is a big part of the problem for many people, because you can’t fail to notice them. But 6 Month Smiles are different.
Although it’s true that they do comprise wires and brackets in the same way traditional braces do, the 6 Month Smiles cosmetic braces available from our Weybridge dental practice are not immediately noticeable in everyday life. How so? That’s simple: 6 Month Smiles comprise clear ceramic brackets and tooth-coloured nickel-titanium wires. They are designed to blend in with the natural colour of your teeth.
Weybridge 6 Month Smiles
The majority of adults who come into our Weybridge dental practice with concerns about their tooth alignment are primarily concerned about their front six to eight teeth – those that are on show when they smile.
Being cosmetic braces, it is these teeth in the smile line that 6 Month Smiles are designed to move. This focus on the front teeth means that treatment times are considerably shorter than with traditional orthodontic appliances: six months is the average treatment time, and the vast majority of patients at our Weybridge dental practice complete treatment within a nine-month timeframe.
These cosmetic braces also use lower forces than standard orthodontic appliances, which means that they are more comfortable. As with all orthodontic treatment, when your teeth have reached their new position, you will need to wear a retainer to make sure they stay there. Our Weybridge clinic offers both bonded and removable retainers.
