A New Smile in 6 Months

Fast teeth straightening in Sutton Coldfield

Have you ever looked at your teeth in the mirror and then closed your mouth again, embarrassed at your crooked teeth? If so, you are not alone; a great many people in the West Midlands suffer from crooked and uneven teeth. In many cases, people believe that only by visiting an expensive dentist in London can anything be done about them and simply accept that they will have crooked teeth for the rest of their life.

In fact, here at Arthur House Dental Care, we have a number of procedures which are effective at straightening crooked and uneven teeth. These include the popular Invisalign as well as the perhaps lesser known methods such as Insignia. One method though which is growing in popularity is the 6 Month Smile. As you might expect, what attracts many people to this procedure is the short time frame for straightening the teeth. Many methods take much longer than a year to work so how does this method work in such a short period of time?

What is the 6 Month Smile?

Unlike most other orthodontic systems, our Sutton Coldfield 6 Month Smile is designed only to work on the more visible front teeth. Because of this, the extra time needed to move the more stubborn rear teeth is not required. The braces themselves are also designed to be discreet and are barely detectable when worn. Both the wires and brackets are made from a tooth coloured material and are smaller in size than on traditional braces.

This system of orthodontics is especially popular with those who are planning a special event in the future such as a wedding. Usually planned well in advance, a six month smile allows the bride (or groom) to undergo the treatment and have their teeth corrected in time for the big day and the memorable wedding photographs.

It should be noted that the ‘6 months’ is the average time that the procedure takes to work. The actual length of time will depend on the severity of the problem. For those who have only slight unevenness, the time taken may be much less whilst for those who have severe crookedness of their teeth, it is likely to take much longer.

To asses whether this is the correct form of orthodontics for your own situation and for an estimate of the length of time they will take to correct your teeth, why not arrange a consultation at our Sutton Coldfield dental practice to discuss with the dentist whether the 6 month smile is the correct one for you.
