FAQs about Six Month Smiles fast adult braces

Q: What is Six Month Smiles

A. Six Month Smiles brackets are clear, small and are complemented with tooth-coloured wires and treatment times usually fall within 4-9 months. Discomfort is minimal as your teeth are gently repositioned.

Q: How can teeth be straightened in only 6 months?

A: Six Month Smiles adult braces employ the latest technology and techniques in dentistry to move your teeth quickly and safely using a brace that is attached to your teeth. The key components of the treatment are the use of special nickel titanium wires and a primary focus of moving only the teeth that show when you smile.

Q: Six months sounds good, but will I still have a mouth full of metal for the whole time?

A: No - these are nothing like metal braces! The Six Month Smiles dentists at Smile Essential in Leicester use tooth-coloured braces that are barely visible. The wires are tooth-coloured as well.

Q: How are Six Month Smiles more comfortable than traditional braces?

A: Six Month Smiles use low force to move your teeth more comfortably. Many people think that the accelerated treatment means simply "tightening" regular braces to get the teeth moving, but that is not true. Six Month Smiles utilises standard orthodontic mechanics but with an emphasis on the cosmetic appearance of your teeth rather than the position of your bite.

Q: Will Six Month Smiles braces damage my teeth, roots or gums?

A: 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 lighter and teeth are seldom extracted, there are actually even fewer risks involved with 6 Month Smiles orthodontics.

Q: Will I have to wear a retainer afterwards?

A: Yes, as with any teeth-straightening treatment a retainer is necessary to maintain the straighter position of your teeth. If you don't want to wear a removable retainer, you can have a bonded retainer placed. There are a variety of options that you can choose from according to your personal preference and situation.

Q: Would I be suitable?

A: If you are aged 15 or older with crooked or spaced teeth and you're not looking for a major alteration to your bite, this could be the solution for you! Most adults ARE candidates for 6 Month Smiles.
