How long do you think braces take to straighten out wonky teeth? Three years? Two years? Surely, it’s never less than one?
Well, think again, because with the right kind of braces, it can take as little as four months to realign them.
Here at the Bounty Road Dental Practice in Basingstoke, clear braces are at the heart of modern dental technology, and that means speed in resolving wonky teeth.
We offer a braces system that can take as little as four months to resolve minor alignment issues. Six Month Smiles is possibly the world’s most well-known braces system designed for simple realignment problems.
Six Month Smiles braces in Basingstoke take only 4-9 to reposition teeth, hence the name. Although this is a bracket and wire system of braces, in Basingstoke, this does not mean that you will have to be wearing heavy, obvious and uncomfortable metal ‘train-track’ braces in order to achieve that lovely smile you want. Six Month Smiles have been designed to be comfortable as well as discreet. The brackets are made of clear ceramic, and the wires are tooth-coloured. Together they produce outstanding and predictable results.
Six Month Smiles braces in Basingstoke are only suitable for certain kinds of simple realignments involving the front six teeth. So, your first appointment with us is all determining whether this is the right course of action for your issues. If it is, then we can go ahead and take impressions and photos of your teeth.
We send these off to the Six Month Smiles laboratory in the United States. They shape the wires and calculate the angle and position of each bracket on your teeth in order to gently pull them into proper alignment. We bond the brackets to your teeth, and fit the wires, and then your braces in Basingstoke are good to go. You will need to drop into to see us every four to five weeks for a check-in and possible adjustments. Once your braces treatment is complete, we will bond a retainer to the back of your teeth, out of sight, to stop them returning to their former position.
