Many adults who dream of straighter teeth feel trapped between a rock and a hard place – not wanting to wear conventional metal braces, but embarrassed to show off a crooked smile in public. At Denchic Dental Spa in North London, we empathise with these concerns but believe that everyone deserves a smile to be proud of. That’s why we offer several discreet ways to straighten your teeth.
One of the quickest and most popular ways for adults to straighten their teeth is with Six Month Smiles clear braces. This system comprises tooth-coloured wires and clear brackets, which means that they blend into your mouth and are not immediately noticeable.
Another huge advantage of Six Month Smiles is that they have significantly shorter treatment times when compared with traditional metal braces. As the name suggests, six months is the average treatment time, and most people will find they need to wear their braces for between three and nine months. Your dentist will be able to advise you of your predicted time when you come for a consultation at our North London dental practice.
How do they work so quickly?
Conventional braces work on all your teeth, and may be prescribed by your dentist to correct issues with your bite as well as the way your teeth look. Six Month Smiles focus on the aesthetic appearance of your smile, and work so fast because they change the position of only the “social six” teeth – those that are visible when you smile.
Because of this reduced treatment time, in many cases Six Month Smiles are less expensive than conventional braces, too. At the end of treatment you will need to wear a retainer to keep your teeth in their new position – your dentist may recommend a bonded or removable retainer.
