6 Month Smiles is an orthodontic appliance that uses nickel-titanium tooth-coloured wires that gently coax your teeth into position. One of the benefits the treatment provides is, achieved by using gentler forces and acting on fewer teeth in comparison to traditional braces. The greatest thing about this treatment is the speed with which it rectifies crooked and misaligned teeth.

On your first visit to the orthodontist in Cardiffyou be given an assessment which is very similar to a dental check up that you have at your dentist.

The Orthodontist will start by counting your teeth, taking photographs, X-rays, and examine your smile.  This assessment will usually take around 20 minutes to complete.

Your dentist will tell you whether the 6-Month Smiles treatment is suitable for you and give you an estimate treatment time and the likely costs involved.

Following this, you will be fitted with the special 6-Month Smiles braces, which are small, white brackets, and special wires that come directly from the 6-Month Smiles laboratory in the United States.

After your first fitting, you will need to visit your dentist every 4-5 weeks for short 10-15 minute appointments for regular adjustments of your braces until the end of your treatment.

You may require one or two further appointments after this to make sure your oral health is at the required standard for orthodontic appliances.

The team will also give you tips on the most effective ways to look after your oral health and give you advice on dental care products.
