Six Month Smiles cosmetic braces explored: subtler teeth straightening

Modern cosmetic braces provide a dentist with subtle, fast, and effective ways to straighten your teeth. At Burwell Dental Surgery in Cambridge, we welcome adult patients who would like to improve the alignment of their smile without the need for traditional metal appliances.

Six Month Smiles cosmetic braces

Six Month Smiles are one of the world’s most popular cosmetic brace systems. They are designed for mild to moderate correction of issues with the front teeth – those that are on show when you smile.

six-month-smilesAt our Cambridge dental practice we understand that whilst many adults would like straighter teeth, the thought of traditional metal braces – with treatment times of up to 24 months – can be very off-putting, even stopping you seeking treatment. We believe that everybody deserves a beautiful smile to reflect their true personality, so whether you missed out on orthodontic treatment in your youth, or had treatment only to find that your teeth have moved back to their original position, we encourage you to join us for a Six Month Smiles consultation.

Six Month Smiles braces comprise clear ceramic brackets and tooth-coloured nickel titanium wires, meaning that they blend in with the natural colour of your teeth for heightened discretion. What’s more, with average treatment times being, as the name suggests, just six months, they are much quicker than traditional orthodontic devices.

Depending on the amount of correction that’s needed – which will be determined during your initial consultation at our Cambridge dental practice – treatment may be even shorter than six months, with some mild cases complete in half that time. Most cases are complete within a nine-month period.

At our Cambridge practice, principal dentist Mabel Saw is a certified Six Month Smiles provider who has treated many happy patients with these braces. So if your current smile is making you frown, why not come in to join her for a consultation?
