Six Month Smiles in Bristol: 6 month Braces

smCrooked teeth make many people feel self-conscious or reserved. There are various methods to correct misaligned teeth but most take between 18 months and two to three years with conventional orthodontic treatment or clear braces. However, the latest in orthodontics - known as Six Month Smiles, can give you the teeth that you want in a fraction of the time taken with conventional treatments.

Six Month Smiles utilises clear wires and brackets to gently straighten teeth in an average time of just six months by focusing on the teeth that show when you smile and not making significant bite changes.

Q: How can teeth be straightened in only six months?

Six Month Smiles employs the latest technology and techniques in dentistry to move your teeth quickly and safely. The key components of the treatment are the use of special nickel titanium wires and a primary focus of moving the teeth that show when you smile. This means that you can get to the result you want faster.

Q: Six months sounds good, but will I still have a mouth full of metal for the whole time?

No! Six Month Smiles treatments use tooth-coloured braces that are barely visible. The wires are usually tooth-coloured as well.

Q: Are Six Month Smiles more comfortable than regular braces?

Six Month Smiles use low force to move teeth more comfortably. Many people think that the accelerated treatment means simply “tightening” regular braces to get the teeth moving, but that is not true. Six Month Smiles utilises standard orthodontic mechanics, but with an emphasis on the cosmetic appearance of your teeth rather than the position of your bite.

Q: Will I have to wear a retainer?

Yes. You can choose to have a fixed retainer bonded to the back surfaces of your teeth or a removable retainer that your wear a few nights a week to prevent the teeth from moving back after treatment with Six Month Smiles.
