Six Month Smiles is a modern treatment designed to fix imperfections in the alignment of the visible teeth. Crooked or overlapping teeth can be quickly altered and nobody but the patient need know! After a mould of your teeth is taken by your dentist, custom trays are crafted to suit your teeth. These are thin and clear to make the treatment basically invisible. The trays are attached with dentist adhesive and teeth-coloured wires and brackets for just the right amount of pressure to abolish your imperfections. With monthly check-ups and alterations, the treatment – as the name suggests – typically lasts around six months, though this may vary from four to nine months.
So, who are they suitable for?
Six Month Smiles are suitable for most people that want to alter the visible teeth at the front of their mouth. However, there are some key aspects to consider and consult your dentist about as to whether they are suitable for you:
- Age: Six Month Smiles are suitable for people of any age who have developed their permanent teeth, though it is more popular in older patients.
- Extent of work needed: Six Month Smiles are only suited to correcting minor problems; they cannot change the ‘bite’ of your teeth, so if you have more serious misalignment problems, other treatments may be more suited for you.
- Speed & Pain: Though they work much faster than ordinary braces, they are no more painful; any discomfort should be gone after the first 7-10 days, so don’t worry about half a year of toothache!
