Six Month Smiles in Chelsea

Traditional orthodontic treatments can often take a lot more time to complete and for some people the thought of wearing metal braces for up to 3 years puts them off getting orthodontic treatment. A new technique known as short-term orthodontics is the perfect solution for patients requiring minor tooth realignment, who want straighter teeth as soon as possible.

Six Month Smiles focuses on moving the teeth visible in your smile line, usually your front 6 to 8 teeth.

Six Month Smile

    What are the benefits of Six Month Smiles?

    • Six Month Smiles braces are clear
    • Wires are usually tooth-coloured and very small
    • They cost much less than traditional braces
    • Total treatment time is quicker than with conventional braces
    • The braces are comfortable as teeth are only re-positioned gently

    Six Month Smiles short-term orthodontics London is an advanced technique as it uses clear brackets and almost invisible wires or clear plastic retainers, depending on the individual case, to gently move misaligned teeth to their desired position, giving you straighter teeth in a shorter time.

    The braces themselves are virtually invisible meaning that this is a perfect treatment to correct slight overcrowding, or for those who have previously had orthodontic treatment but whose teeth have shifted back over time. Best of all short-term orthodontics is usually completed in around 6 months, depending on the case – around a third of the time taken for traditional orthodontics.

      How can teeth be straightened in just six months?

      It is widely agreed in the orthodontic community that braces are the safest and most effective way of straightening teeth to give patients a beautiful smile. Six Month Smiles makes use of the best features of braces, and exploits them to give the best results in a shorter time frame. By using a process that focuses on just the core objectives of the treatment, Six Month Smiles can achieve great visual results without having to restructure your whole bite.

      The special nickel titanium wires are the key component. They focus on just moving the specific teeth which are visible when you smile, so the whole process takes a lot less time than if the whole mouth were to be treated.

          Will I still have to have a mouthful of metal for half a year?

          Whilst braces are designed to help your smile look better in the long run, they are not known for being the most fashionable accessory in the short term. But Six Month Smiles is no ordinary set of braces. The special nickel titanium wires are tooth-coloured, so that they blend seamlessly into your smile. So unlike the traditional image of unsightly metal braces, Six Month Smiles are virtually invisible.

            Are Six Month Smiles braces more comfortable than regular braces?

            These braces do not exert huge forces on your teeth, and you only have to wear them for 6 months so the overall experience is much more comfortable than having normal braces. This is not true in the slightest. The focus of Six Month Smiles is not to completely reposition the bite, but just to improve the cosmetic appearance of teeth. The process, therefore, does not need to be as vigorous.
