Braces remain the best way, in a lot of cases, for a dentist to straighten your teeth. However, at Smilecraft in Stevenage we understand that many adults are put off at the thought of wearing obvious metal appliances for two years or more. That’s why we are proud to offer a more discreet, aesthetically pleasing alternative.
Six Month Smiles are cosmetic braces that take the traditional principles of orthodontics and modernise them to create a 21st Century treatment option. They are fixed appliances, but there’s not an unsightly glint of metal anywhere to be seen.
Cosmetic braces are one of the most rapidly growing areas of modern dentistry, and one of the most exciting dental innovations of recent decades. They are designed for adult patients who are unhappy with the alignment of their smile, but not in need of major orthodontic correction.
Six Month Smiles braces comprise clear ceramic brackets and tooth-coloured nickel-titanium wires. This means that they blend in well with the natural colour of your teeth, and many people won’t immediately notice them in everyday life.
As well as being more discreet that traditional braces, Six Month Smiles also have a considerably reduced treatment time. Six months is the average length of treatment – some people only need to wear the appliances for half that time, and the vast majority of cases are complete in between three and nine months.
They work so quickly because they focus on the front six to eight teeth – in other words, those that show when you smile.
Because of the shortened treatment times, Six Month Smiles are usually less expensive than traditional orthodontic treatment options.
