Can you be too old for braces?

Are you one of the millions of adults who are unhappy, self-conscious, or even embarrassed by your smile?

Many adults spend their entire lives covering their mouths when they laugh, smile or talk.  They feel stuck because they do not want to wear fixed metal braces for years, or they are concerned that other corrective procedures could be too invasive or expensive.  Now, there is an effective, safe and affordable cosmetic solution that fits an adult lifestyle.

A revolutionary combination of proven orthodontic techniques, modern materials and innovative ideas – Six Month Smiles in Glasgow utilises specialised clear braces to gently straighten and align teeth in an average time of just six months. Maybe it’s time to take the first step towards improving your smile, your confidence and your life at Park Orthodontics.

Like most of our braces treatments, Six Month Smiles focuses on improving the appearance of the smile without looking to reorganise your bite. The teeth they are designed to straighten are known as the ‘social six’ and are the six teeth shown when smiling. This means that treatment can be faster than you might imagine.

Our team are happy to assess your smile and discuss all your options for short term braces treatments, including Inman Aligners, Invisalign or Six Month Smiles in Glasgow.

Are they comfortable?

Six Month Smiles in Glasgow use minimal force to move teeth more comfortably. Many people think that the accelerated treatment means simply ‘tightening’ regular braces to get the teeth moving, but that is not true. Six Month Smiles uses standard orthodontic mechanics, but with an emphasis on the cosmetic appearance of your teeth, rather than the position of your bite.

Do Six Month Smiles braces damage the teeth?

There are no more risks of root damage or other issues than those associated with traditional metal braces. Since the forces used with Six Month Smiles braces are lighter and teeth are seldom extracted, there are even fewer risks involved with Six Month Smiles braces.

What’s the catch?

There is no catch. If you are 15 years and older, with crooked or spaced teeth and you’re not looking for a major alteration to your bite, Six Month Smiles in Glasgow could be the solution for you.
