Over the last year we have seen more and more people requesting teeth straightening at our dental practice an this Friday and Saturday I attended a six month smiles training course in London. Now both Rob Campbell and myself can provide this service at Far Headingley Dental Care. The course was at Kings college and delivered by Jaswinder Gill, a very experienced 6 Month Smiles dentist.
Six months smiles is a cosmetic brace system, the braces are tooth coloured and the main advantage is shorter treatment times for patients as the average time being 6 months. Some people can get their teeth straightened as quickly as only 4 months. It all depends on how crooked a persons teeth are before we start.
The course was intense but very informative and I’m really excited to get back to Leeds to start providing treatment. So many of my patients have been asking me about correcting their crowding, and with six month smiles there really is an option that is suitable for most people.
What I love about my job is seeing the difference a new smile can make to someone’s life. It really can be life changing. It can give people more confidence in social situations and can really make a difference for job interviews or special occasions such as wedding photos. The great thing about six month smiles is that it is much better and less destructive to the teeth compared to other cosmetic options such as crowns or veneers.
It’s always fun for me to be in London, it’s where I grew up and I enjoyed staying with my brother and sister in law, and catching up with my lovely niece and nephew. On Friday evening I met up with an old Leeds dental university friend and we went out for a meal and went to see the west end show Bend it like Beckham. It’s always good to be back home in Yorkshire though and to breathe clean air again!
