What if you were told that in only half a year you could transform your teeth so much that you’d find it hard to stop smiling? And you were also told that treatment wouldn’t cost an arm and a leg, or hurt like mad or fill your mouth with so much metal that no one could fail to notice you were having ‘work’ done?
Well, at Park Orthodontics that’s what you’ll hear from us about Six Month Smiles in Glasgow. Six Month Smiles is the brand name of one of the most well-renowned modern braces treatments on the market.
If you are an adult and you wish you’d got your teeth straightened as a youngster, or maybe you did and they’ve gone out of alignment again, then Six Month Smiles in Glasgow might well be the solution you have been waiting for.
This discreet system of braces is aimed at adults (and teens) whose front six teeth, the ones most on view, need some straightening, but who do not have any other serious problems with their bite.
With Six Month Smiles in Glasgow, the teeth are straightened using discreet fixed braces (fixed braces work faster than removable aligners), which are made up of clear ceramic brackets and tooth-coloured wires. Brackets and wires use standardised mechanics, but because, with Six Month Smiles our aim is to improve the appearance rather than the bite, the forces needed to move the teeth don’t need to be so powerful, and therefore so painful. Gentler forces also lower the chance of root damage.
All of this means that the whole process is much quicker, usually between four and nine months rather than two or more years. And a quicker treatment means a lower cost for you, the patient.
After your teeth have been moved into their new position, and the braces part of the treatment is over, you will need to wear a removable retainer to keep them in their new place in the jaw. If you find that you just can’t remember to put that retainer in, there is the option to have a bonded retainer fitted. This is also invisible.
