Six Month Smiles in Glasgow: why you should visit us

Not all braces are created equal. Different types of dental appliances do different jobs. Some deal with complex cases of malocclusion of the teeth – where the upper and lower arches don’t meet when the jaw is closed – and some work on the ‘social six’ front teeth only.

Your general dentist can offer you some teeth straightening options and you may have heard claims that they can fit you with a type of brace that works quicker than a traditional wire and bracket one – this doesn’t tell the whole story. At Park Orthodontics, we’ve been straightening teeth for 45 years –  braces are our business. While your dentist can offer you fast-acting braces, they don’t actually work quicker than a traditional one. They work in exactly the same way, and move teeth at the same pace. Treatment times are faster, but only because this kind of appliance works solely on the front teeth, not on moving the whole jaw.

In Glasgow, Six Month Smiles are once such type of brace, offering cosmetic enhancement and correcting squint teeth at the front of the mouth. You can go to your general dentist for this treatment – or you could see our dentists who have been fitting braces for four decades.

A general dentist can fit Six Month Smiles after attending a three-day course. Our clinicians have trained for at least two years, just in the field of teeth straightening, on top of the five years of their general dental degree.

So, while you may only need this small adjustment, our dentists are perfectly placed to understand your brace needs and offer you a range of options, including Six Month Smiles in Glasgow.

We can also often offer the treatment at a lower cost, because we don’t have to pay to set up costs. Our prices for Six Month Smiles in Glasgow start at £850. At a general dentist, costs can be up to £2000 for the same treatment.

And while the Six Month Smile braces work the same as traditional braces, they have one characteristic that makes them more appealing: they are made of clear and tooth-coloured materials and so blend into the teeth. No obvious metal train tracks!

A quicker way to a smile with straighter teeth

How we feel about our smile can have a huge impact on our life. If you feel too self-conscious to smile or laugh, it can make social and professional interactions more difficult. Smiling is social glue – it helps to form and build relationships and puts people at ease.

When you smile, you feel more relaxed and able to open up. When others see you smile, even if they only register it subconsciously, they see you as warm, friendly and trustworthy and are more likely to feel comfortable around you.

All this means that if you are holding back from smiling because of your wonky teeth, it’s having an impact on your interactions with others.

What can you do about it? You may have dismissed the idea of having treatment with braces because of the lifestyle impact – what adult wants to wear metal train tracks for years? The good news is that, due to advances in dental technology, there are options now available for quick and discreet teeth straightening, some of which are available here at Park Orthodontics in Glasgow.

Six Month Smiles in Glasgow: what to expect

In Glasgow, Six Month Smiles braces are fast acting and more discreet than traditional braces. They use the same brackets and wires but as they are tooth-coloured, they blend into the surface of the tooth enamel and so aren’t as obvious.

Six Month Smiles in Glasgow work on the front six teeth known as the ‘social six’ as these are the teeth that show the most when we smile. This means that the realignment can happen in only six months. This is a cosmetic procedure and doesn’t correct a misaligned bite or more complex issues.

Making you smile

Crooked teeth are a common complaint for people who would like to improve their appearance. Sadly, many people are unhappy with their teeth, which makes their social and professional life feel challenging. Some patients tell us that they hide their teeth when they laugh and feel inhibited about talking to people. Many choose to put up with their unsightly teeth because they are worried that having braces is costly, time consuming, unattractive or uncomfortable. Our patients at Park Orthodontics have benefitted from a system of braces called Six Month Smiles in Glasgow, which works very quickly. We are proud to offer people in Glasgow Six Month Smiles as it contributes to great oral health and also saves them money as the treatment time is reduced compared with other treatments.

Can I really have straighter teeth in six months?

People have lots of reasons for wanting their treatment time to be as short as possible so Six Month Smiles in Glasgow can be very helpful. It is not suitable for severe misalignments, but if your smile can be improved by moving the front teeth, which are the most visible, then this treatment could work for you. The fixed brackets are virtually invisible and the wires are tooth-coloured, so you do not need to worry about ugly braces.

What happens when I have Six Months Smiles in Glasgow?

The first step is a consultation with our dentists to see if Six Month Smiles in Glasgow can help you. It is important to ensure that your teeth are healthy before we start, so we carry out a comprehensive check, including taking impressions and photographs. This means we have a good overview of the state of your mouth, as well as the correct information to ensure that your braces fit correctly and that you end up with the results you want. We carry out regular check-ups during treatment and supply you with a retainer to wear. A retainer ensures that, when you are happy with the position of your teeth, they stay where they need to be.

How do they work?

Six Month Smiles uses brackets and wires, just like with traditional braces, but these brackets and wires are tooth-coloured so that they can be less noticeable because they blend in with your teeth. They are also smaller brackets and will allow you to maintain your appearance even while you wear braces.

Six Month Smiles braces are designed to apply small amounts of force to shift your teeth into their new and improved positions.

Can I have Six Month Smiles?

A focused treatment for teeth straightening

There are many factors when considering braces that may put an adult off having treatments. Here at Park Orthodontics, we understand that traditional braces may get in the way of your normal lifestyle.

Thanks to advances in technology and materials we can provide different types of braces that may be more suitable to your lifestyle. This will allow you to get that perfect smile you’ve been thinking of.

Many treatments are considered cosmetic as the adjustments they can achieve are visual rather than health-related. These treatments serve to perfect the appearance of your smile, giving you a confidence boost.

Six Month Smiles in Glasgow

In Glasgow, Six Month Smiles treatment is available as an alternative to traditional braces. They work in a very similar way to traditional braces but are less conspicuous and their treatment time is drastically shorter.

Average treatment time for traditional braces is anywhere between 18 months and three years. In Glasgow, Six Month Smiles can perfect your smile within as little as four months.

The treatment is this much faster because it focuses solely on the ‘social six’. These are the six teeth that are visible when you smile. By focusing on just these visible teeth, you can achieve the smile you’ve always wanted much faster than before.

Another great feature of these braces is that they are constructed from clear and tooth-coloured materials that make them much more difficult to spot when they are in your mouth.

Compared to traditional braces, Six Month Smiles could be considered as more comfortable because the forces they use to move your teeth are much gentler.

More options than ever

Another notable treatment is Invisalign. Invisalign utilises plastic tooth trays that gradually adjust your teeth using gentle pressure.

These trays can be removed at any time and don’t require a professional’s adjustments like most braces.

As the name suggests, Invisalign is almost completely invisible when you are undergoing treatment.

The array of different teeth straightening treatments can be bewildering, but getting the straight teeth you’ve always dreamt of is now easier than ever, so why not come in and let us help you find the right treatment for you?

Six Month Smiles explained

In Glasgow, Six Month Smiles takes, on average, just 6 months to realign your teeth with Park Orthodontics, but it could be as little as 4 months, or as many as 9. It all depends on your particular issues. The reason it is so much faster than traditional braces is that Six Month Smiles in Glasgow is designed to realign the teeth only, and not the jaw. It’s the jaw realignment that can take years. Six Month Smiles are also aimed at the front 6 social teeth, which have fewer roots than the molars, and so are easier to move about in the jawbone.

As the forces needed to move just the teeth are much gentler, it means that the braces themselves are much smaller. The brackets are smaller and are made of clear ceramic, helping them to blend into your teeth. They are strung together with tooth-coloured wire, which also blends in.

If you are interested in using Six Month Smiles in Glasgow to realign your teeth, then the first thing to do is book an appointment with us at Park Orthodontics. We have been realigning teeth in Glasgow for decades now, and so will only recommend Six Month Smiles if we think it is the right treatment that will do the best job of realigning your teeth.

At the end of your treatment with Six Month Smiles in Glasgow, you will need to wear a retainer. This can be a fixed retainer that is bonded to the backs of your teeth, or a removable retainer, which you wear at night.
