6 Month Smiles: discreet straightening for adult teeth

Using 6 Month Smiles, it is possible to straighten adults’ teeth far more quickly than with conventional braces. They are a popular choice at Danny de Villiers Dentist in Weybridge, because they are subtle, comfortable, and fast acting.
six-month-smilesAs the name eludes to, the average treatment time with 6 Months Smiles cosmetic braces is just half a year. Some milder cases at our Weybridge dental practice are complete in just half that time, and most people finish treatment within nine months.
When you come into our Weybridge dental practice for a 6 Month Smiles consultation, your dentist will perform a clinical assessment to ensure that this is the most appropriate treatment to suit your needs, and will then advise you of your projected treatment time.
Weybridge 6 Month Smiles
The secret to these cosmetic braces’ rapid treatment times is the fact that they focus on the front six teeth in the upper or lower jaw. It is these teeth – the ones that show when you smile – that the majority of adults who come to our Weybridge dental practice are most concerned with correcting.
Whilst 6 Month Smiles are not designed to correct major issues with the bite, they are perfect for mild to moderate crowding and alignment issues with the front teeth. Another huge benefit of this system is that, whereas conventional braces are made from metal and are obvious, 6 Month Smiles comprise clear ceramic brackets and tooth-coloured nickel-titanium wires. This means that they blend in so well with the natural colour of your teeth that few people will immediately notice them in everyday life.
Because they use lower forces than standard orthodontic appliances, 6 Month Smiles are also renowned for being more comfortable than traditional braces.
At the end of treatment, you will need to wear a retainer to make sure your teeth stay in their new, improved position. Your Weybridge dentist will discuss your retainer options with you to find the ideal one to suit your lifestyle.
You will also need to come in for monthly check-ups at our Weybridge dental clinic during treatment, to make sure all is going to plan.
