Differences between Six Month Smiles and traditional Orthodontics:

  1. We achieve significant improvements in your smile.
  2. All braces are clear and very aesthetic (like the one Tom Cruise wore).
  3. It is very fast (6 months as opposed to 2 ½ years with conventional orthodontics).
  4. Less costly than traditional orthodontics.

Six Month Smiles can be used to treat a wide variety of orthodontic complaints, including:

  • Crowding – teeth are too close together
  • Spacing – gaps between teeth
  • Overbite – teeth overlap too much
  • Overjet – front teeth stick out
  • Underbite – lower teeth stick out
  • Crossbite – teeth bite on the wrong side of each other
  • Openbite – your teeth do not meet when you bite
  • Misplaced midline – centre lines of upper and lower teeth don’t align

The main benifits of Six Month Smile are:

  • The wires are discreet, being small and tooth-coloured.
  • Treatment time is reduced by up to 75%.
  • Discomfort is kept to a minimum, as the teeth are gently repositioned.
  • Cost is around half that of traditional braces or Invisalign.
