What is the 6 Month Smiles system?
6 Month Smiles is an orthodontic system which uses fixed braces to straighten the teeth in a matter of months. The 6 Month Smiles system was developed in America and has since become incredibly popular in countries across the world.
How does the treatment work so fast?
Fixed braces usually take a long time to align the teeth but 6 Month Smiles braces are able to straighten teeth in only six months. The treatment works so fast because it focuses on the front teeth. The system employs advanced techniques and technology to offer a quick, painless method of teeth straightening.
Am I a suitable candidate?
6 Month Smiles braces are suitable for patients with minor orthodontic problems affecting the front teeth. If you have more complex problems another treatment may be the better option, in which case we are happy to make alternative recommendations based on your orthodontic prescription, budget and expectations. 6 Month Smiles is able to address the following problems:
- Minor crowding
- Overjet (protruding front teeth)
- Spaces between the front teeth
What are the benefits?
The major benefit of Six Month Smiles braces is that they work quickly. This is beneficial for patients who are put off undergoing treatment by the prospect of wearing braces. 6 Month Smiles braces are not invisible, but they are fine and discreet, using friction-free techniques to move the teeth quickly and without any discomfort. 6 Month Smiles braces are perfect for patients who want to improve smile aesthetics in a short space of time.
What does treatment involve?
We will send impressions of your teeth to the Six Month Smiles laboratory in the USA. Once your custom-made braces are returned to the practice, we will fit them, check that you are happy and then fix them onto the teeth using strong dental adhesive. We will arrange regular appointments to check your progress and adjust the braces accordingly.
Nimo A – Six Month Smiles and whitening
“I have always been really embarrassed about my teeth as I thought it looked as though I had far too many in my mouth! I thought the only way to get them straight was with a lot of drilling until Dr Goddard told me about Six month smiles. She said she could get my teeth straight and white with braces and simple bleaching. I went with her advice and am THRILLED with the results! I think my pictures speak for themselves a fantastic smile I am now so proud that they all my own natural teeth. I cannot recommend Melissa and her team and Six month smiles enough.”
