This girl is wearing braces. You’d hardly be able to tell by looking at her that she is undergoing orthodontic treatment. That is because she is wearing Six Month Smiles braces, an orthodontic system which uses fixed translucent brackets and wires which are designed to straighten the front six teeth in each arch. It is ideally suited to patients who have crowded front teeth and only want these straightened.

At Woodborough House we offer the Six Month Smiles as an alternative to traditional braces because of its effectiveness at correcting front teeth, its translucency which makes it discrete in the mouth and its fast and effective approach to teeth straightening.

Is Six Month Smiles noticeable?

As Six Month Smiles uses the latest developments and techniques in dentistry to move teeth quickly and safely, you can feel assured that they look nothing like metal braces. Due to the tooth coloured braces being barely visible and the wires being tooth coloured, no one will be able to tell you are wearing them either. The key components of the treatment are the special nickel titanium wires which focus on helping the teeth in your smile line to move.

Six Month Smiles are also more comfortable than regular braces as they use a low force to move the teeth in a way which is comfortable. This works in contrast to what some people believe in regard to accelerated treatment meaning a tighter set of braces to get the teeth moving. This is not the case with Six Month Smiles.  The latest advances in orthodontic mechanics are utilised with this appliance so that the emphasis is on enhancing the cosmetic appearance of your teeth, rather than the position of your bite.

Once you have been fitted for the appliance, you will have to come into the dental practice every 4-5 weeks for a check-up and to ensure the braces are in the correct position.

Is it permanent?

As with any kind of orthodontics, post treatment retention is essential to prevent your teeth moving back to their original position. Therefore after treatment is complete the patient can either wear a removable clear aligner or a bonded wire which is fitted onto the back of teeth.

Ultimately you should find that Six Month Smiles is a great alternative to conventional braces, whilst providing a safe, quick and pain free way of moving your teeth to help give you the smile that you’ve always wanted.
