In our Chester and Wirral orthodontic practices we can achieve a Six Month Smile but only in milder cases. It would be over ambitious to suggest that you could achieve a perfect result in 6 months in more complex cases however much we wish that we could. The only limitation on the speed of tooth movement is how fast your bone cells can turnover to allow the repositioning of teeth. High forces can delay tooth movement so by only using the most modern self-ligating low friction braces we can move your teeth with the lowest forces meaning they move as fast and efficiently as they can possibly go and as an added benefit low forces are more comfortable.
The 6 Month Smile idea is being marketed cleverly, often through dentists who have no formal Orthodontic training. The dentists are given an orthodontic kit and the braces are set up by a technician who is not a clinician/orthodontist. This may work out fine (and fast) in very mild cases but the lack of formal orthodontic Specialist training (a 3 year full time Postgraduate degree course) will mean that if it does not work out as well as expected then there may be very little they can do to remedy the situation!
If you want a six month smile using teeth braces in West Kirby, Heswall, Chester or Liverpool then come and talk to us at Lakeside Orthodontics and we can give you a realistic opinion based on our experience with thousands of cases and knowledge of the latest research and developments. You never know, you may be one of the cases that can have a new smile in 6 months!
