Six Month Smiles is the teeth straightening system we use here at St. Raphael’s Dental Practice. It is for adults (16+) with crooked, spaced, or misaligned teeth. We use discreet clear braces that are both barely noticeable and highly effective, giving our patients results in as little as six months.
How does it work?
Your initial consultation will allow us to get to know you, discuss your desired outcomes of orthodontic treatment and create you a bespoke plan including your treatment needs and requirements.
First Appointment - Braces On
Today’s the day. Lasting about an hour you’ll have your braces fitted and you’re on your way to a straighter smile!
Month 1 - Movement’s Begin
During your first month you will be getting used to life with a brace. We recommend avoiding hard or sticky foods and adjusting your oral hygiene routine. Our dental team will be able to offer you help and advice.
Month 2-4 - Adjustments
You should already see a huge different to your teeth! Expect to see changes every month. You’ll need approximately 3-7 adjustment appointments with the dentist during this time.
Month 5 - You’re Almost There
Get excited! You’re about a month away from getting your braces-off and a brand-new smile.
Month 6 - Braces Off
Congratulations! You’re done! You now have a beautiful new smile! Show it off to your friends and family. You’ll be required to wear a retainer during the night, or even have a fixed retainer placed at the back of your teeth to keep everything nice and straight following completion of treatment.
Final Stage - Teeth Whitening
To finish your treatment with us here at St Raphael’s Dental Practice we will offer you complimentary teeth whitening to really make your new smile shine!
