Six Month Smiles uses clear brackets and tooth coloured wires to straighten crooked teeth. By focusing on your primary cosmetic concerns rather than trying to change your bite in any major way the average treatment time is just 6 months.  
 
 Just think by the time of your next dental health check you could have the smile you have always wanted!

 1.      Complimentary Consultation - a chance to find out about the system with our treatment coordinator.

 2.      Dental Heath Check - the dentist will check that you are dentally fit and free from dental disease. It is very important to have healthy teeth and gums before starting any orthodontic treatment. X-rays will be taken of your mouth and your suitability will be discussed. The fee for this appointment is £55.

3.       Assessment - Our Treatment Coordinator will take impressions of your teeth and take a series of clinical photographs for diagnostic purposes. The fee for this assessment is £55.

4.       Consent - Our treatment Coordinator will discuss with you any queries you may have and should you wish to proceed with Six Month Smiles the treatment consent and finance will be confirmed. 


I want to proceed with Six Months Smile – What do I do? 

Record Taking Appointment - This appointment will be for taking accurate impressions of your mouth. These are then sent to Six Month Smiles in America who will custom make your brace and with 3 weeks we will be able to start your treatment.

Fitting of Six Month Smiles – At this appointment your clear brackets will be fitted onto your teeth. Then a tooth coloured wire will be inserted through the brackets and locked into position using clear bands called donuts. We will supply you with some clear wax as in the early stages of treatment some areas of your mouth may feel sore.  

Review Appointments – We will need to see you every 4 weeks to adjust the orthodontic appliance and every 8 weeks will change the tooth coloured wire alongside adjusting your appliance. Where necessary minor adjustments of the tooth enamel using polishing strips (slenderisation) will be undertaken.

How to clean your appliances and oral health - Our oral health educator will spend time with you, giving you confidence and guidance on what dental aids and techniques you need to keep optimum gum health through your treatment. 

Retainers -  When your treatment is completed it is vital that we hold your new smile in position. Teeth always want to move and so wearing retainers is an essential part of the treatment.

There are 2 types of retainer:

1. Clear, removable retainers.
2. A thin metal wire that is bonded behind your teeth so that it is hidden.
Occasionally with patients that grind their teeth these retainers are not enough and it may be necessary to construct a thicker night guard.
The dentist will advise you which retainer would be required and additional retainers can be purchased at extra costs. 
Extra retainers are from £80.    


Cost of treatment – Our Six Month Smiles for upper and lower teeth (both arches) is from  £2500 or from £1800 for just one arch, this includes the treatment, review, adjustments and one retainer.
