We were the FIRST practice in the area who were certified and trained to use Six Month Smiles and have Vast Experience in this Adult Orthodontic treatment
Six Month Smiles® is a modern twist on tried-and-true orthodontics. There is little debate within the orthodontic community that braces are the most widely used and most effective method to give patients straight, healthy teeth and a beautiful smile. Six Month Smiles® has taken the best aspects of braces and modified the treatment and the materials to give adults a common-sense, cosmetic
The solution that fits your lifestyle. Here is what makes Six Month Smiles® so innovative …
How can teeth be straightened in just six months?
The Six Month Smiles® technique employs the latest technology in dentistry to move your teeth quickly and safely. Special nickel titanium wires are used and the treatment focuses on moving the teeth show when you smile.
Will the treatment definitely take six months?
Every person is different, so treatment lengths vary from person to person. Most of the treatments will be completed within a four to nine month period, but on average the treatments take six months.
Will the braces be obvious?
Six Month Smiles® braces are more discreet that traditional braces. The braces and wires are tooth-coloured, to ensure they blend in and are barely visible. If you book a free consultation at The Whitehouse Dental Clinic one of the team will show you exactly what they look like.
Are Six Month Smiles® braces more comfortable than regular braces?
Many people think that the accelerated treatment means simply ‘tightening’ regular braces to get the teeth moving, but this is not true. Six Month Smiles® braces use low force to move teeth more comfortably and focus 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 Six Month Smiles® braces are lower and teeth are seldom extracted, there are actually even fewer risks involved with the Six Month Smiles® treatment.
Will I need to wear a retainer?
As with any teeth-straightening treatment, you will need to wear a retainer to maintain the straighter position of your teeth. If you don’t want a removable retainer, you can have a bonded retainer placed instead. You can discuss your options with one of our team members at The Whitehouse Dental Clinic and decide which suits your personal preference and lifestyle.
Am I suitable for Six Month Smiles®?
Most adults are suitable for Six Month Smiles® braces. If you are 18 years old and above with crooked or spaced teeth and you’re not looking for a major alteration to your bite, this could be the solution you are looking for. To find out, book a free consultation so we can discuss your needs.
