SMILE – it’s only six months and counting
Want a beautiful, bright smile in less than six months?
It may seem impossible, but it doesn’t have to be! Thanks to Six Month Smiles, a discrete clear fixed brace system, we can correct crooked front teeth quickly.
At Woodborough House, we offer Six Month Smiles as an alternative to metal braces. There are many advantages to using the Six Month Smiles system, including producing faster and more controlled tooth movements, which means treatment times are on average six months.
Six Month Smiles is more comfortable than traditional metal braces. Metal braces tend to extend further back into the mouth, resulting in more discomfort. This doesn’t happen with Six Month Smiles.
Why Six Month Smiles?
- They’re clear – so no one will notice them
- The wires are usually tooth coloured and very small
- Treatment times are short – usually 4-9 months
- Discomfort is minimal as the teeth gently become repositioned
- The overall cost is generally less than traditional braces
The process of Six Month Smiles
Initially, you will go for an assessment appointment with your dentist to plan your treatment for the Six Month Smiles procedure.
Any consequences of wearing the brace will be explained to you, but this will depend on the case. After your assessment, impressions will be made to fabricate models of your teeth.
The braces will then be fitted by your dentist. After which you may need to go for a dental appointment on a regular basis in order to have the wires on the braces changed.
This is to ensure that you achieve the result you want. This process usually takes six months – hence the name.
