Gemma one of the dental nurses at Smile Essential dental practice, went through the treatment herself and made a video diary of her treatment in this video she gives solutions to some common problems-
1) What is Six Month Smiles and is it the best option for me ?
Six Month Smiles is the latest adult brace system from America which allows people to have the smile they want in the shortest a space of time possible. Overall the treatment aims to reduce cost, save time and give great results. If you’re an adult that hates the way your front teeth look because of crooked, misaligned or gappy teeth then Six Month Smiles could be the best option for you.
Six Month Smiles works slightly differently to conventional braces because it concentrates on moving the front teeth only to improve their cosmetic appearance, it doesn’t alter the bite on the back teeth like conventional braces do. That’s why the treatment can be carried out without the hassle and inconvenience of traditional brace methods or invasive dental treatments, because most adults just want to improve the appearance of their front teeth.
2) Are finance options available?
However you are thinking of financing your new confident smile, we have a range of flexible options specially tailored to suit you and your needs. One of our most popular finance options is our 12 month 0% interest offer; it allows you to spread the cost of your new smile so you don’t have to make any lifestyle changes. You can try out what you can afford to borrow and the monthly costs with our handy online finance calculator .
3) How soon can I have straight teeth?
This is the exciting part about Six Month Smiles! Treatment takes anywhere from 4 to 9 months with most people having their new smile in just 6 months. With conventional braces the average treatment time is between 18 months and 2 years, that’s what makes Six Month Smiles such a popular choice for adults. Because the treatment works quickly every month you will be able to see your teeth one step closer to your ideal smile. Once you have been in for your consultation the dentist will be able to give you an idea of how long they expect the treatment to take for you.
4) What to expect at my appointment?
Your initial appointment for a chat you’ll meet with one of our highly qualified, friendly team members.
