What is 6 Month smiles? You remember that tv series called Ugly Betty? Those chunky metal braces, which are the first thing you see when you say hello to the person? It’s NOT that!!
Lots of my clients ask me about this type of treatment, but what is 6 Month smiles? It is a braces system that can help straighten your teeth in 6 months or less. It uses fixed braces to move your teeth in a fast and predictable way, ensuring you get the cosmetic result you desire.
The good thing about 6 Month smiles over a lot of other braces systems is much more discreet. It works in a similar way to traditional braces, however it’s a lot faster and it is mainly focused on achieving a good cosmetic outcome! Doesn’t that sound like something you would like?
Dr Amin has had further training in fixed braces, unfortunately, most normal dentists are not well trained in orthodontics and therefore do not know the intricacies of treatment and what options are available these days. It is true that some patients require a lengthy 2-year plan to get their teeth straight, however a lot of normal dentists assume that this is the case for everyone as they are not trained in orthodontics.
In addition, some orthodontists are very rigid with their treatment plans. They want to achieve a textbook ideal result, which includes straightening the back teeth and most people don’t really care about their back teeth. If their smile is looking good and the back teeth are healthy, why not shorten the time braces are on and achieve this in 6 months or less?
Majority of people I see and treat fall into this category and they can expect fantastic cosmetic results in around 6 months. If you are interested in this, it’s best to come in for a free consultation so we can assess if you are a suitable candidate.
We charge £2000 for one arch and if you want both uppers and lowers, the fee is £3000. This includes all your photo’s, a 3D scan, appointment with the dentist for this treatment, all the materials required during the treatment, retainers, and even gentle tooth whitening after the treatment is finished! Straight and white teeth in a short time!
We use ceramic clear braces, which are clear in colour. At Sensational Smiles we understand that looking good during treatment is important. If you want the treatment to be discreet, then we would recommend Invisalign, which we can also offer you. Not sure which is the best option for you? No problem, that is exactly why we have the option of offering you a free consultation as well. Yes, we have thought of just about everything for our clients.
What do we have that others don’t? Of course, we have the complimentary tea, coffee, hot chocolates with biscuits, but we also have a highly skilled and caring team and top of the range technology. We have just invested in an intra-oral scanner at our practice. This means you don’t have to have that horrible impression material (which most people find a little uncomfortable!) but a small scanner will whizz round your teeth. Together we will then be able to see what your teeth would look like if you were to have Invisalign treatment. That way you can see your result even before we have started treatment.
