Six Month Smiles

Six Month Smiles

Six Month Smiles is a quick and effective alternative to conventional braces. Tooth-coloured brackets and wires straighten teeth and close gaps. Six Month Smiles only focuses on the front teeth so it offers quick results and minimal discomfort. Six months from today you could have the straight smile you’ve always dreamed of. According to recent research, a great smile can boost self-esteem. As a result of this increased confidence, it can enhance many areas of your life as a result.

The treatment time is greatly reduced, usually around six months in duration. As this system only effects your front teeth, less force is needed, meaning Six Month Smiles® is more comfortable than traditional braces too. Using clear and extremely discreet braces, your teeth are gently moved into correct alignment. As well as being faster, discreet and more comfortable than traditional braces, Six Month Smiles® is typically cheaper too.

6 Month Smile Procedure

The treatment uses translucent Lucid-Lok memory wires and brackets that blend seamlessly with a patient’s existing tooth structure; they provide consistent levels of force the align and straighten teeth in a gentle manner. The unique shape and structure of the memory wires work in conjunction with pre-positioned brackets to realign teeth comfortably and predictably.

When using traditional orthodontic procedures and braces, the results provide fantastic results; however, this type of treatment can sometimes take up to two years or more to achieve.

After a patient’s initial appointment, which includes x-rays, impressions, and a comprehensive examination, a case submission script and the patient’s teeth impressions are sent to the processing facility.

After receiving the impressions, a specialist will identify the correct bracket location placements using the impressions provided to achieve the desired effect. The specialist will then fabricate custom-made bonding trays. These make the bonding process incredibly simple, stress-free, and efficient.

Six Month Smiles braces were pioneered by American dentist Dr. Ryan Swain, who introduced the concept in 2007. By 2012, 20,000 patients had been treated.

A common misconception is that Six Month Smiles braces are uncomfortable because the accelerated treatment means that tighter braces are required. In actual fact, Six Month Smiles uses low force to move the teeth and as they only focus on certain teeth (social six), consequently, they take less time.

Six Month Smiles is suitable for adults (18+) who have crooked or widely-spaced teeth but do not wish to change any structural issues with their bite. If you have a special occasion coming up and want to look your best in a short amount of time, Six Month Smiles may be the perfect choice of treatment for you.
