Six Month Smile braces will improve the appearance of your smile in approximately six months; think of it as a fast-track brace! Your front teeth will look beautiful, so your smile will be wonderful.
Danny the Dentist is happy to help you with Six Month Smiles to give you the smile you’ve always wanted — whether you’re a teen or adult.
What are the braces like & how do they work?
A Six Month Smile brace involves clear brackets adhered to your teeth and tooth-coloured wires to change the position of your teeth.
What types of problems do Six Month Smiles correct?
Six Month Smile braces correct any minor issues that can be seen when you smile, in your front teeth. This includes crowding, overlapping, misalignment, crooked teeth or gaps. They are suitable for both adults and teenagers, particularly those concerned about their appearance and with only minor imperfections with their smile.
How does it compare to traditional braces?
Compared with traditional braces, Six Month Smiles:
- Produce quicker results: focusing on correcting only the teeth that can be seen when you smile allows for a much shorter treatment time than the typical 18 to 24 months needed for traditional braces.
- Are more affordable: the shorter treatment time is very cost-effective.
- Are more comfortable to wear: they are fairly unobtrusive so patients tend to get used to wearing them very quickly.
- Are less noticeable: they are far less visible than traditional metal train track braces with their clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires.
Although traditional braces can treat other problems such as incorrect bites, most people only need their visible front teeth improving.
How can I get Six Month Smiles braces?
The first thing you need to do is book a consultation with an orthodontist, so your suitability for Six Month Smiles can be assessed. They will examine your smile by taking X-Rays, facial photos and impressions of your teeth. They will advise whether you are eligible for a Six Month Smile and indicate how long you will likely need to wear them for (most people do see results after six months, but some people need up to nine months).
At your next appointment, the brace will be bonded to your teeth and you will be on your way to your best smile!
You will need to attend follow-up appointments every four to five weeks so the brace can be adjusted. Although this involves tightening the wires, it is not painful, just a little uncomfortable.
Once your smile is where it should be, the brace will be removed and you will receive a retainer to wear at night to make sure your teeth don’t move back to their old positions.
