If you want to straighten your teeth but don’t want traditional ‘train tracks’ or have to wait 2-3 years for braces to work, please contact us about Six Month Smiles cosmetic dentistry.
Six Month Smiles are cosmetic braces that use tooth coloured wires and clear brackets to move your teeth in just a fraction of the time that other orthodontic treatments take.
Many people are embarrassed or self conscious about their smiles but are also wary of the cost of braces, about how their braces might look, or if their braces will hurt. By using Six Month Smiles at Whitchurch Dental Studio we can reassure our patients they have nothing to worry about.
Benefits of Six Month Smiles
Six Month Smiles are used at Whitchurch Dental Practice to treat:
Q. What can I expect if I have Six Month Smiles at Whitchurch Dental Studio?
At your first dental appointment you will be fully assessed and our dentist will take some photographs, X-rays and examine your smile. We will also give you an indication as to whether the 6-Month Smiles treatment is suitable for you and the likely treatment time and costs involved.
At your next dental appointment you will then be fitted with the 6-Month Smiles braces, which are small clear white brackets and special wires.
After your first fitting, you will visit Whitchurch Dental Studio every 4-5 weeks for short appointments for regular adjustments of your braces until the end of your treatment.
A few more Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How do I know if Six Month Smiles will work?
A. Our team at Whitchurch Dental Studio only uses and recommends high quality
treatments with proven success. Six Month Smiles are relatively new in the UK but hundreds
of dental patients in America have used them very successfully. Six Month Smiles utilise the
latest technology and techniques which are quick and safe – many of our patients here in
Shropshire have also used them with excellent results.
Q. How can teeth be straightened in six months if other braces take 2-3 years?
A. The treatment uses special nickel titanium wires to move the teeth that show when you
smile, rather than all of your teeth. They focus on how your teeth look, rather than the
position of your bite.
Q. Is the Six Month Smiles treatment painful?
A. The majority of our patients don’t experience any pain. What sets the Six Month Smiles
braces apart is that they use low force to move teeth more comfortably. That said, everyone is
different and you may experience some discomfort initially. It may be advisable to take some
mild painkillers such as ibuprofen or paracetamol during the first few days of your
Q. Will the braces affect how I talk?
A. Possibly during the first week as you get used to your new braces but it should soon return
Q. Will I have to wear a retainer after six months?
A. Your teeth have a tendency to move back to their natural position so a retainer brace will
prevent this (this goes for all types of orthodontic treatment, not just Six Month Smiles).
Our dentist will either provide you with a night-time removable retainer to wear, or you can
be fitted with a permanent bonded retainer on the back surfaces of your teeth.
Q. How much do Six-Month Smiles braces cost?
A. The cost of treatment using the Six Month Smiles system is much less than the equivalent
treatment with conventional braces or Invisalign, but can vary slightly from patient to
patient. We will give you a complete breakdown of cost and payment options and discuss
them with you at your FREE consultation.
