With the new advances in the field of orthodontic care, you are now able to have your front set of teeth straightened in a relatively short period.

Your first appointment will be a full assessment and some photographs, X-rays and a full examination of that smile! Once we have looked you over we will be able to tell you if you are a suitable candidate for 6 Month Smiles braces and we will also be able to give you an indication of the costs involved.
Your next appointment will be the fitting of the 6 Month Smiles braces, with their special wires and small clear and discreet white brackets.
Once the braces are fitted you will come back into see us at Dulwich Dental Office every 4-5 weeks. These will be short appointments to allow us to make regular adjustments to the braces for the entire course of your treatment.
Q. How will I know if Six Month Smiles will work for me ?
The Dulwich Dental team uses only the most cutting edge treatment and only ever recommends treatments that have a proven track record and reputation for excellence. Although relatively new in the UK, Six Month Smiles have been used to treat thousands of patients in the USA with great success.
Q. If it normally takes 2-3 years to straighten teeth how do Six Month Smiles do it in less ?
The 6 Month Smile treatment uses special nickel titanium wires that gently move the teeth in your smile line rather than all the teeth. The emphasis is on aesthetics rather than healthy teeth that do not show when you smile. The focus is on how your teeth look, rather than the position of your bite.
Q. Will Six Month Smiles treatment be painful ?
Most of our patients tell us that they don't have any pain. This is due to the fact that Six Month Smiles works by gently moving the teeth using a low degree of force. But everyone is different and it is possible that you might have some initial discomfort. Taking a few over the counter pain killers should be quite sufficient to deal with this for the short time it takes to become accustomed to the treatment.
Q. Will I speak differently when I am wearing the braces ?
Possibly, during the first week as you get used to your new braces, but your speech should soon return to normal.
Q. After my Six Month Smiles treatment is complete will I need to wear a retainer ?
Your teeth will, if unrestrained, tend to move back to their pre-treatment position and a retainer brace will stop this happening as it would in any other orthodontic treatment. You will be able to choose from a night-time retainer or braces that bond to the back surface of your teeth.
Q. How much do Six Month Smiles braces cost ?
The Six Month Smiles system is much less expensive than the equivalent conventional brace treatment. Treatment does vary a little from patient to patient. All payment options and your own treatment cost will be discussed at your FREE consultation.
6 month smiles reviews that are based on patients' experience, indicate that the use of wires and clear brackets that are almost invisible on the teeth, has hugely improved patient experience and comfort. Shorter treatment times and low-movement were also a very popular feature especially for those who wanted to see fast results.
