Braces for adult patients

19th August 2016

There are more options than metal fixed braces to straighten adult teeth. At Slough Braces Centre we understand the barriers that the thought of wearing an obvious metal appliance can throw up for adult patients. However, we are also well aware of the benefits of teeth straightening at any age – for both your dental and general health. That’s why we are proud to offer a discreet alternatives.

Six Month Smiles cosmetic braces are one of the most popular and successful subtle tooth straightening systems in the world. They are designed for mild to moderate correction of issues affecting the front teeth – sometimes called the “social six” teeth – in other words, those that are seen when you smile.

It is these teeth within the smile line that are the primary cause for concern for the majority of adults who visit our Slough dental centre.

One of the huge benefits of using Six Month Smiles braces is that treatment time is a lot shorter than with traditional orthodontic appliances, meaning that you could have the beautifully aligned smiles that you’ve always dreamt of in just half a year. Some mild cases at our Slough clinic complete in as little as half that time – your dentist will advise you how long your treatment should last when you come in for a Six Month Smiles consultation.

Another key point to remember about Six Month Smiles braces is that there will not be a glint of metal in sight whilst you are having treatment. They comprise clear ceramic brackets and tooth-coloured nickel-titanium wires, which means they blend in so well with the natural colour of your teeth to such an extent that they will not be instantly noticed by the majority of people in day-to-day life.

Unlike with some other systems of cosmetic braces, which are removable, with Six Month Smiles you don’t need to worry about forgetting to pop your brace back in after eating or cleaning. Because they use lower forces than standard braces, they are also much more comfortable.

Your Slough dental hygienist will teach you how to clean around your braces during treatment, ensuring no particles of food get trapped in the wires.
