Six Month Smiles® in Harley Street

The Six Month Smile brace is a treatment which straightens teeth in just six months. Six Month Smile braces are fixed braces designed to focus on the teeth that are visible when you smile. The braces are finer and more discreet than conventional fixed braces and they work very quickly, making them an ideal choice for patients who are preparing for special occasions, such as weddings.

Who is Suitable for Treatment?

Six Month Smile braces are designed to achieve quick results by focusing on the teeth at the front of the mouth. The braces are ideal for people who want to improve the aesthetics of their smile but have been put off by the thought of wearing braces for 1 or 2 years. Six Month Smile braces can be used to treat a wide range of minor orthodontic problems, including:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Spaces between the teeth

During your consultation, your dentist will assess your suitability for treatment using the Six Month Smile brace.  If you are not a suitable candidate for this treatment we will advise on other more appropriate treatments.

What Happens During Treatment?

Six Month Smile braces are custom-made for each patient. Your dentist will create an impression of your teeth which is sent to the Six Month Smile laboratory, where the braces will be manufactured and then returned to us. We will fit the brackets and wires according to the treatment plan, these components will be fixed in place using dental adhesive.

Is Six Month Smile Treatment Painful?

The procedure to fit the braces is not painful and the braces use state of the art technology to move the teeth as quickly as possible. The brackets and wires are much finer than traditional fixed braces and use self-ligating technology to prevent friction. Initially, it will take a little time to get used to wearing braces but any discomfort should subside very quickly.

How Long Does Treatment Take?

As the name suggests treatment is usually complete within six months, but the exact treatment time will vary according to each case. Less complex cases are normally complete within 4 months but more complex cases take up to 9 months. Six Month Smiles is considerably faster than other fixed brace systems, which generally take at least 12 months to attain results.
