Wearing braces to straighten teeth is often thought of as a treatment for teenagers. However, the fact is not everyone gets the chance to have their teeth straightened as a child. What’s more, in some cases teeth can relapse after treatment, shifting back into their former positions. This means there is a demand for effective teeth straightening for adults. While a mouthful of metal may have been bearable in your youth, as an adult, you probably want a subtler solution. Six Month Smiles makes this possible.
Six Month Smiles technology is available in many practices in Essex; Simply Teeth is one of these. At this modern dental practice, Six Month Smiles is used to effectively straighten teeth with improved comfort and cosmetics when compared with traditional fixed metal braces.
What are the Perks of Six Month Smiles?
Six Month Smiles is a fixed braces system that uses clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires. This means your braces will blend into the background of your teeth for a more discreet look during your treatment. The technology behind Six Month Smiles also means low levels of force are used to push your teeth into their straighter positions, which makes for a more comfortable treatment journey. Treatment times range from four to nine months, averaging around six months.
This fixed braces treatment can be used to address crooked, crowded or spaced out teeth. The best way to find out if Six Month Smiles could work for you is to arrange a consultation with your dentist.
What to Expect from Your Treatment Journey
At your initial consultation your teeth and gums will be examined. Impressions of your teeth will be made and photos taken. Based on all of this information, your Six Month Smiles braces will be custom-made. Once your braces have been attached, you will have monthly dental appointments to check on your progress.
At the end of your treatment, you will need to wear a retainer to keep your teeth in their new straightened positions. There are two kinds of retainers available: fixed or removable. You can choose whichever will work best with your lifestyle. You can then enjoy the lifelong benefits of straighter teeth.
