Six Month Smiles

Six Month Smiles focuses on moving the teeth visible in your smile line, usually your front 6 to 8 teeth. 

This treatment is a cosmetic treatment rather than orthodontic treatment. It won't correct any problems you have with the jaw alignment or bite. Stradbrook Dental Clinic will invite you in for a consultation to establish your individual needs, and recommend the best options for a straightening solution for you.

As these treatments focus on fewer teeth, results can be achieved quicker than full orthodontic treatment, in as little as 6 months.

Six Month Smiles

What are Six Month Smiles braces?

Six Month Smiles is the latest in teeth-straightening technology from America.

What are the main benefits?

  • Six Month Smiles braces are clear
  • Wires are usually tooth-coloured and very small
  • They cost much less than traditional braces
  • Total treatment time is quicker than with conventional braces
  • The braces are comfortable as teeth are only re-positioned gently

Six Month Smiles makes use of brand new technology which allows clear braces to gently straighten your teeth in an average time of just six months. The technology works by only focusing on the teeth which are visible when you smile (for extremely effective results). The braces do not attempt to make significant structural changes, such as changes to your bite, but instead they focus on non-evasively and comfortably straightening the teeth which are on show in order to give you the attractive, pleasant smile that you’ve always wanted.

How can teeth be straightened in just six months?

It is widely agreed in the orthodontic community that braces are the safest and most effective way of straightening teeth to give patients a beautiful smile. Six Month Smiles makes use of the best features of braces, and exploits them to give the best results in a shorter time frame. By using a process that focuses on just the core objectives of the treatment, Six Month Smiles can achieve great visual results without having to restructure your whole bite.

The special nickel titanium wires are the key component. They focus on just moving the specific teeth which are visible when you smile, so the whole process takes a lot less time than if the whole mouth were to be treated.

Although 6 months is a relatively short treatment time, will I still have to have a mouthful of metal for half a year?

Whilst braces are designed to help your smile look better in the long run, they are not known for being the most fashionable accessory in the short term. But Six Month Smiles is no ordinary set of braces. The special nickel titanium wires are tooth-coloured, so that they blend seamlessly into your smile. So unlike the traditional image of unsightly metal braces, Six Month Smiles are virtually invisible.

Is it true that Six Month Smiles braces are more comfortable than regular braces?

These braces do not exert huge forces on your teeth, and you only have to wear them for 6 months so the overall experience is much more comfortable than having normal braces. People often believe that because this is an accelerated treatment, the braces will have to be tightened much more often in order to achieve the same results as regular braces.

This is not true in the slightest. The focus of Six Month Smiles is not to completely reposition the bite, but just to improve the cosmetic appearance of teeth. The process, therefore, does not need to be as vigorous.
