As the name suggests, the average treatment times is six months. The brackets used are clear and the tooth-colored wires are barely visible. Six Month Smiles uses low forces and short overall treatment times. Therefore this increases comfort, safety, and hygiene. Six Month Smiles are also less expensive than traditional metal braces, some aligners, or porcelain veneers.

Am I suitable?

If you’re looking to get your front teeth straightened, known as the ‘social six’, these can be corrected in a stress free way with Six Months Smiles. This ‘braces in a box’ system is a great inexpensive substitute for heavy duty braces. Wearing them for just six months will cure crowding problems, close gaps between the teeth and will stop protruding upper and lower front teeth.

Six Month Smiles are designed to solve mild to moderate cases of misalignment. If you present a particularly serious case of teeth protrusion or overcrowding, you may be advised to expand your clear braces in Essex treatment time, to up to around nine months.

What does it involve?

The treatment involves having clear brackets glued to the teeth and flexible tooth-coloured wires inserted. You will need to visit the dentist every month during the treatment time to have new wires and elastics fitted. You will also need regular thorough checkups, to ensure that your teeth are moving in the direction they should be. At Simply Teeth, your appointments for clear braces in Essex are fast and you’ll experience very little discomfort.
