Six Month Smiles | Woodside Dental Practice Aberdeen
Cosmetic Braces System
Your smile is one of the first things people notice when they see you. Crooked teeth make many people self conscious of their appearance.
There are many solutions to achieving straight teeth but some of these can take at least 18 months, if not 2 – 3 years. If you want straight teeth fast without metal brackets then Six Month Smiles Braces are a great option for you.
Six Month Smiles cosmetic braces are very discrete as they use clear ceramic brackets and tooth coloured wires to gently straighten your teeth. By focusing on the teeth you can see when you smile and not making significant changes to your bite, we are able to straighten your teeth in an average time of six months.

Frequently asked questions
Q: How can teeth be straightened in only six months?
A: The Six Month Smiles technique employs the latest technology and techniques in dentistry to move your teeth quickly and safely. The key components of the treatment are the use of unique, clear braces and a primary focus of moving the teeth that show when you smile.
Q: Six months sounds good, but will I still have a mouth full of metal for the whole time?
A: No! Six Month Smiles uses clear braces that are barely visible to gently straighten your teeth.
Q: How are Six Month Smiles braces more comfortable than regular braces?
A: Six Month Smiles uses low force to move teeth more comfortably. Many people think that the accelerated treatment means simply “tightening” regular braces to get the teeth moving, but that is not true. Six Month Smiles utilizes standard orthodontic mechanics, but with an emphasis on the cosmetic appearance of your teeth rather than the position of your bite.
Q: Do Six Month Smiles braces damage the teeth, roots, or gums?
A: There are no more risks of root damage or other issues than those associated with traditional orthodontics. Since the forces used with Six Month Smiles braces are lighter and teeth are seldom extracted, there are actually even fewer risks involved with Six Month Smiles.
Q: Will I have to wear a retainer?
A: Yes, as with any teeth-straightening treatment a retainer is necessary to maintain the straighter position of your teeth. If you don’t want to wear a removable retainer, you can have a bonded retainer placed. There are a variety of options that you can choose from according to your personal preference and situation.
