If you are considering orthodontic treatment, you may be wondering if braces are the only option. The good news is that there are a range of treatments available, including six month smiles.

Six month smiles is a short-term orthodontic treatment that can give you a beautiful, straight smile in no time at all – perfect for a special occasion. 

Here are some of the benefits of six month smiles:


1) Discreet treatment

With braces, it is possible to correct a wide variety of dental problems, including crooked teeth, overbites and underbites. Six month smiles use clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires, which means that they are not noticed by people the way metal braces are. 

These seamlessly blend in with your teeth, making them practically invisible and leaving you with a beautiful smile that looks anything but fake or unnatural.


2) Quick and effective results 

Six month smiles is often referred to as a semi-permanent orthodontic treatment because it does not require the same amount of time as traditional braces do. Most people will complete their treatment in approximately six months but the length of time varies somewhat depending on your specific needs and dental issue. 

Nevertheless, this is one of the shortest orthodontic treatments available – perfect if you want your teeth to look great, without investing too much time into getting them straightened. 


3) Comfortable 

Most patients worry about the discomfort associated with orthodontic treatment. However, six month smiles is a very comfortable treatment. 

The clear brackets are light and gentle on your teeth, whereas the self-ligating  wires are smooth to minimize friction, which means that they won’t cause irritation or pain. In addition, the treatment time is short, so you won’t have to wear them for long.


4) Cost-effective 

Finally, one of the biggest benefits of six month smiles is that it is an affordable treatment. The cost of braces can be prohibitive for some, but the quick treatment time of six month smiles means fewer appointments and adjustments, making it a more cost-effective option that delivers the same outstanding results.
