At Duggan Dentist in Finglas we offer Six Month Smiles braces so you can get the smile you want in less time. These are short term fixed invisible braces, that are used to concentrate on correcting misaligned/crooked front teeth. The average treatment time is 6 to 9 months, so, much shorter than other fixed braces treatments. We use tooth coloured brackets and wires to achieve this so the braces are less visible.
What is Six Month Smiles™?
Six Month Smiles™ is an innovative orthodontic treatment that combines modern, clear braces and cutting edge techniques to give you the smile you have always wanted. With the Six Month Smiles™ treatment, we use clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires that are hardly noticeable. The treatment also offers a significantly shorter treatment time that can improve oral hygiene and your comfort.
How can the treatment be completed in only 6 months?
Six Month Smiles™ uses the latest techniques and technology in dentistry to move your teeth quickly and safely using a brace that is attached to your teeth. The treatment is provided by the use of special nickel titanium wires and a focus of moving just the upper or lower teeth that show when you smile.
Do Six Month Smiles™ braces hurt?
Most patients describe a mild temporary discomfort for a few days after the clear braces are placed and maybe after some adjustments, but generally people don’t complain of anything more than that.
Are retainers required?
Yes, as with all orthodontic treatment, a retainer is necessary to maintain the new, straight position of your teeth. There are a variety of retainer options our dentist will recommend depending on your specific situation.
