Frequently Asked Questions

How can teeth be straightened in only six months?
The Six Month Smiles™ technique employs the latest technology and techniques in dentistry to move your teeth quickly and safely using a brace that is attached to your teeth. The key components of the treatment are the use of special nickel titanium wires and a primary focus of moving the teeth that show when you smile.

Six months sounds good, but will I still have a mouth full of metal for the whole time?
No! We use tooth-coloured braces that are barely visible. The wires are usually tooth-coloured as well. These are nothing like metal braces!

How are Six Month Smiles™ more comfortable than regular braces?
Six Month Smiles™ use low force to move teeth more comfortably. Many people think that the accelerated treatment means simply “tightening” regular braces to get the teeth moving, but that is not true. Six Month Smiles™ utilises standard orthodontic mechanics, but with an emphasis on the cosmetic appearance of your teeth rather than the position of your bite.

Do Six Month Smiles™ braces damage the teeth, roots, or gums?
There are no more risks of root damage or other issues than those associated with traditional orthodontics. Since the forces used with 6 Month Smiles™ braces are lighter and teeth are seldom extracted, there are actually even fewer risks involved with Six Month Smiles™ orthodontics.

Will I have to wear a retainer?
Yes, as with any teeth-straightening treatment a retainer is necessary to maintain the straighter position of your teeth. This will either be a fixed or removable retainer according to your situation.

Would I be suitable?
If you are an adult ( 16 years and older) with crooked or spaced teeth and you’re not looking for a major alteration to your bite, this could be the solution for you! Most adults ARE candidates for Six Month Smiles.

How much will it cost?
Depending on the individual, you could require a single arch which would cost from £2500, or both arches which would cost from £2950. Please book in for a complimentary consultation to clarify your own suitability.
