Six Month Smiles is a quicker way to achieve straighter teeth.
Six Month Smiles is an industry award-winning cosmetic brace system for teeth straightening developed in the USA, and is available at our Far Headingley Dental Care practice in Leeds.
Six Month Smiles has been specifically designed to help adult patients who wish for:
An enhanced smile
Short treatment times
Minimal brace visibility
People with crooked teeth often end up covering their mouths when they laugh, smile or talk. They feel frustrated because they do not want to wear metal braces for several years or they are concerned that other corrective procedures could be too invasive or too expensive. There is now an alternative to traditional orthodontic braces with the effective, safe and affordable Six Month Smiles cosmetic brace system which utilises proven orthodontic techniques, modern materials, and innovative dentistry.
Short term ortho
The Six Month Smiles teeth straightening system is a form of Short Term Orthodontics (STO). The key difference with this treatment compared to traditional orthodontic treatment that the back teeth are not moved and only the teeth seen when smiling are straightened. Short Term Orthodontics is generally appropriate when a patient is already content with the position of their back teeth, and it is just the front teeth that are crowded and require aligning.
The main benefit of opting for 6 Month Smiles to align teeth instead of traditional orthodontics is that the treatment time will usually be shorter, usually in the range of 4-to-9 months. Traditional Orthodontics using fixed braces typically takes around 18-30 months.
With Six Month Smiles cosmetic braces the components are all coloured white so that they blend in with your teeth and make them less noticeable.
Benefits of Six Month Smiles
Straighter teeth look better.
Straighter teeth are healthier because they are easier to clean.
Six Month Smiles takes a fraction of the time of traditional orthodontics.
The braces are tooth coloured so are less noticeable.
Six Month Smiles can be much cheaper than traditional orthodontic treatment
At Far Headingley Dental care we know how much a smile can be lifted with a simple course of home tooth whitening. That is why at the conclusion of Six Month Smiles treatment, we like to offer a free home tooth whitening course. This home teeth whitening would usually cost around £300, but is complimentary with Six Month Smiles treatment at FHDC, here in Leeds.
How do I maintain my smile?
As with all Orthodontic treatment, once the teeth have been aligned it is important to keep the new tooth positions stable. This is achieved by retainers, which are bonded (fixed) on the back of the teeth where they cannot be seen. You will also be provided with a clear removable retainer.
What happens during Six Month Smiles treatment?
During your Six Months Smiles full case assessment appointment we will take digital photographs, X-rays if required, impressions , assess you occlusion (bite) and examine your smile. This information along with your dentists report is sent to the 6 Month Smiles laboratory.
Following this you will be fitted with your custom designed Six Month Smiles Braces which are made up of small clear brackets and white wires.
After this first fitting you will need to visit your dentist every 4-5 weeks for regular adjustments of your braces until the end of your teeth straightening treatment.
