Six Month Smiles in Lichfield

‘Six Month Smiles’ is an orthodontic treatment that focuses exclusively on aligning your teeth in a 5-9 month time period.

 

Correction of any crowding is achieved by a combination of:

  • IPR- Polishing away small amounts of tooth structure (1/4-1/2 mm) from between the teeth to provide space needed to align your teeth.
  • Rounding out- expanding the arch of your teeth to provide more room for alignment.

Both of these techniques are very common in all types of brace treatment.

 

If you have any questions please feel free to send us a message using our contact form.  You can make a more informed choice about your treatment if you ask us about the different options open to you.  If you would like to arrange a consultation with Stuart then please contact us to arrange a new patient consultation.

Are there any downsides?

Ultimately 6 month smiles is a trade off, the brace is on for a shorter period of time and as such we can only focus on the alignment of teeth, we cannot correct the root position and we have limited control of the bite.

Is Six Month Smiles suitable for Anyone?

Please be aware that 6 Month Smiles is not for everyone; we do not treat children with this technique (we treat children idealistically rather than pragmatically) and it cannot be used where there is insufficient space for all your teeth.

How much does it cost?

6 Month Smiles costs £2950 and includes:

  • The treatment to move your upper and lower teeth over 5-9 months.
  • All associated planning, models, written reports and X-rays.
  • Teeth whitening– the perfect companion to straightening your teeth. We love including whitening as the end result looks even better and it saves you £450.  Win, win!
  • Minor cosmetic contouring to smooth away any chips and uneven edges.
