Receiving orthodontic treatment later in life has many benefits, such as restoring your confidence in your smile, rejuvenating your appearance and improving your oral health. However, adults don’t necessarily see metal braces as the most fashionable accessory and are often reluctant to wear them due to cosmetic and practical considerations. Luckily, dentistry has come a long way and many modern teeth straightening treatments are specifically tailored to adult patients.
At Smilecraft in Stevenage, orthodontics is all about restoring your beautiful smile. We firmly believe that teeth straightening can be effective at any age. That’s why we offer Six Month Smiles, an innovative orthodontic system specifically designed for adult patients who want to straighten their teeth discreetly.
How Six Month Smiles works
Six Month Smiles braces are exactly like regular braces, with the exception that they consist of tooth-coloured brackets and titanium wires. As the name of the treatment suggests, the average treatment time is only six months. Given that regular braces treatment can take up to two years, some patients may wonder how Six Month Smiles braces can work so quickly.
The answer is simple. Unlike metal braces that treat the teeth from the root and can even alter your bite, Six Month Smiles braces focus on the teeth that people can see when your smile. Whereas regular braces make larger adjustments that take longer, Six Month Smiles braces are quick, effective and comfortable.
Am I eligible?
In order to be a good candidate for this type of treatment, you must be at least 16 years old. Six Month Smiles braces are ideal for patients who have slightly oddly aligned teeth and want them fixed in a short period of time. However, if you suffer from severe misalignment or have bite problems, this type of treatment is not ideal for you and your dentist may suggest regular braces instead. In any case, we are happy to evaluate your circumstances and answer any questions you may have.
