Invisible braces seem like a thing of the distant future, not yet within reach but wouldn’t it be great if we had them? Flying cars, self-tying shoes, and invisible braces, what a world that would be. The thing is, though, that invisible braces are a treatment available right now and right here at the Sleaford Smile Centre. If you’ve never heard of invisible braces but are curious, then read on!
6 Month Smiles
We offer the advanced braces system called 6 Month Smiles at our dental practice. This braces system uses tooth-coloured wires and clear brackets so that your braces blend into your natural tooth colours. They are still fixed to your teeth like traditional metal braces are, but they’re much more discreet than the starkly obvious train-track effect.
When will I see my results?
As you may have guessed, the clue is in the name. You could see your braces results with 6 Month Smiles in as little as 6 months. This is because the braces only focus on the teeth that are shown when you smile. This braces system is best suited to treat your cosmetic smile rather than any functional issues that traditional braces would otherwise address. At your initial consultation, we’ll discuss your desired end results and specific treatment goals to help you gain a confident smile.
Will I need adjustments?
You will need to come back into our dental practice a few times over the coming months for braces adjustments. Because of how comparatively fast 6 Month Smiles works, the changes in your teeth could be noticed after each month of your treatment. This means we’ll need to adjustment the braces as these changes occur in order to keep your treatment journey moving forwards. It’s estimated around 3-7 adjustments could be made, depending on your individual case.
Do these braces hurt?
Not really, the sensation created is more comparable to a mild temporary discomfort for a few days after the braces are initially placed. You’ll soon get used to this and it should ebb, only returning for a few days after you’ve had some adjustments.
Do I need a retainer?
Yes, as with any braces treatment, you’ll need to wear a retainer afterwards. This is because your teeth will likely drift back into their wayward positions if you don’t wear one, and treatment will have to be repeated all over again!
