The field of orthodontics has changed dramatically, even in the last decade and one of the most noticeable changes is the speed of treatment. In years gone by, patients were required to wear braces for 1, 2 and sometimes even 3 years to get the results they desired, but with modern systems, we can achieve results in months. If you’re desperate for a straight smile and you don’t want to hang about, 6 Month Smiles could be the answer. Six Month Smiles is a fixed brace system, which employs advanced self-ligating technology to reduce treatment times drastically. As you may have surmised from the name, this brace takes just 6 months to correct orthodontic issues and create beautiful smiles. Other systems often take a lot longer, so it is natural to wonder how this treatment works so rapidly and the answer lies in the technology and the focal point of treatment. The technology accelerates tooth movement and the braces focus only on the teeth that are visible when you smile; this leads to shorter treatment times. The ideal candidate for 6 Month Smiles treatment requires minor to moderate levels of correction for issues that concern the front teeth, also known as the social 6. We often recommend this treatment for clients who come to us with a preference for rapid results; for example, those who are eager to look their best for a specific occasion, such as a wedding. Although 6 Month Smile braces are not invisible, they are a more discreet proposition than conventional metal braces, as they are made of clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires. If you like the sound of speedy braces, which also offer comfort and excellent aesthetics, why not give our friendly reception team a call and make an appointment? When you come in for your consultation, our dentists will outline the treatment process, explain the pros and cons and carry out the necessary tests to determine if this is a viable option for you; if for any reason, other systems would be more suitable, we will discuss all your options with you.

Time flies by and with 6 Month Smiles, you’ll be getting your braces off and preparing to show the world your new smile before you know it. This fast, effective and discreet fixed brace treatment is an incredible option for those looking for great results in record time. In many cases, orthodontic treatment takes at least 12 months, but with 6 Month Smiles, you can enjoy results much quicker. 6 Month Smile braces are specially formulated to move the teeth quickly and comfortably and they target issues that affect the front teeth, as these teeth are visible when you smile. Ideally, this treatment is suited to those who have minor or moderate issues that predominantly concern the front teeth; it is also a really good option for those who have a special date or an occasion in mind, such as a wedding or graduation ceremony, as it works so quickly. In addition to speed, 6 Month smile braces also offer discretion and comfort; the braces are made from clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires and they use self-ligating wires, which generate friction-free forces. The treatment process is also really simple and this system offers value for money, as fewer appointments are required thanks to the short treatment period. If you are interested in 6 Month Smiles, the best thing to do is to call and book a consultation. The consultation is an informal session, which allows your dentist to examine your teeth and take a look at your bite to see if this is a suitable option for you; they will also discuss the ins and outs of the system with you and you can ask any questions you may have about 6 Month Smiles or orthodontic treatment in general. It’s normal to have lots of questions when you’re thinking about having braces, so don’t be afraid to fire away! If you decide to go ahead with treatment, your dentist will draw up your personalised treatment plan, your braces will be made and you can then start treatment. Just 6 months later, you’ll be ready to wow your loved ones with an amazing new, straight smile!
