Six Month Smiles

Six Month Smiles

Cosmetic dental braces offer patients an even smile, even faster!

One factor that tends to deter some patients from having their teeth straightened is the length of time it can take. Understandably, it is important not to force teeth back to their correct position by exerting too much pressure on them, as this could cause damage, to say nothing of the discomfort to the patient.

This can mean that many orthodontic systems can take well over a year before patients see the full effects. Not all orthodontics take this long though, and our patients from Battersea and Clapham Junction now have the option of one of the most popular fast acting orthodontics on the market.

Six Month Smile

The Six Month Smile, does exactly what it says on the tin, although, in fact, the six months timescale is an average and in minor cases, teeth can be straightened even quicker.

So, how is this possible without exerting excess pressure?

Quite simply, the Six Month Smile works by focussing purely on the front and visible teeth. In this sense it can be said to be a cosmetic dental brace as the rear teeth are not affected. It does mean, however, that the focus can be placed on creating a great smile for the patient without the long wait needed by many other orthodontics. As the front teeth are less resistant to movement, this also helps the cosmetic braces to return the teeth to their desired position.


In addition to the speed at which the Six Month Smile dental braces work, they are also very discreet. Although they perhaps do not match Invisalign for ‘near invisibility’, and operate using a wire and brackets approach like standard braces; the materials used are both shaded to match the colour of your teeth and both wires and brackets are much smaller than is the case with standard braces.

Our teeth straightening dentist at the Confidental Clinic will be able to advise you, during your consultation, of the expected time that these orthodontics will take to correct your teeth. In some cases, it may be that this particular method is not suitable and an alternative such as ‘Fastbraces’ or ‘Quick Straight Teeth’ might be a preferable option.

Improved smile

Once the patient’s teeth have been straightened, quite a few of our patients also opt to have them whitened using our fast acting teeth whitening procedure. This enables them to feel even more confident with their new even smile.
