Can adults have braces? Yes! Our patients worried about the stigma attached to wearing ‘train track’ dental braces during adulthood can now benefit from aesthetic tooth-coloured dental braces in Essex, called Six Month Smiles.

Six Month Smiles at Simply Teeth reduce braces treatment time to around six months. By concentrating only on straightening teeth that are visible when smiling. This will perform a smile transformation for people who experience low self-esteem because of spaced, crooked or misaligned teeth. Traditional braces in Essex on the other hand, straighten all the teeth in the mouth and as such need treatment times of around 18-24 months.

Is Six Month Smiles for me?

Can adults have braces, used to be a common question among older patients. But now, the discreet white wires and clear brackets used in Six Month Smiles provide an aesthetic solution for individuals concerned about the appearance of metal fixed braces. In addition, the gentle nature of the procedure means there will be little pain or discomfort for the duration of the treatment time.

Six Month Smiles involves the use of fixed brackets and wires to straighten teeth. This is not as discreet as Invisalign, which involves having almost invisible removable aligners. However, Six Month Smiles treatment is quicker than Invisalign and is more efficient in carrying out certain tooth corrections.


What Does the Procedure Involve?

Six Month Smiles uses advanced technology to move teeth in a manner that is both quick and safe. Focusing on moving the teeth that show during a smile, rather than making every single tooth in the mouth straight.

Your dentist at Simply Teeth will begin the procedure by conducting thorough checks on the teeth. Using an extensive range of x-rays, teeth impressions and photographs to make sure the teeth being moved are all clinically sound and ready for movement.

We would advise you to let us know at the beginning of your treatment exactly what smile improvements you would like to achieve from the treatment. This way we can ensure that your treatment plan is the right one for you.
