Six Month Smiles are a form of orthodontic treatment which aims to straighten the teeth and therefore produce happier smiles for our patients. Six Month Smiles not only produce straighter teeth and therefore more aesthetically pleasing smiles, but they can also help improve the function of teeth within the mouth. Many individuals may not be aware that crooked teeth can cause discomfort, as well as an unnecessary build-up of bacteria, which can lead to oral diseases and infections, such as gum disease, for example.
How do Six Month Smiles in Leicester compare to traditional metal braces?
Traditional metal braces use a combination of metal brackets and wires, in order to apply pressure to the teeth, encouraging them to move in a positive direction. Traditional metal braces are considered as an effective way to straighten more severe dental cases (such as overbites), however they can also be viewed as unsightly by many. Six Month Smiles cater for our patients who wish for effective results, without the appearance of obvious metal braces. Despite both traditional metal braces and Six Month Smiles striving for the same dental results, they do so in different ways.
How do Six Month Smiles in Leicester work?
Six Month Smiles use an innovative and discreet dental approach in order to achieve fast and effective dental results. Six Month Smiles use clear brackets and wires which are custom made, for each of our patients’ individual dental cases.
How much does Six Month Smiles cost?
Many of our patients may believe that Six Month Smiles are a more expensive alternative to traditional metal braces, however this is not necessarily the case. Six Month Smiles at our dental clinic in Leicester use modern dental materials in order to reach the best possible results. Although it is always difficult to give our patients a fixed dental fee, we aim to offer our patients as much financial flexibility as possible.
Avoid a hefty upfront cost
Dental bills can be stressful for many of our patients, which is why we offer monthly finance plans. Our monthly payment plans ensure our patients can achieve their desired smile, regardless of their financial position.
Are Six Month Smiles right for me?
If you are considering an effective orthodontic treatment at a fraction of the cost, you may be wondering if Six Month Smiles are right for you. Patients who are suffering from crooked, irregularly spaced, misaligned, or front protruding teeth may be eligible for Six Month Smiles in Leicester.

What’s been putting you off getting your teeth straightened? Is it that you think straightening is only for kids? Or maybe you have an image that you need to keep up for work? Or maybe you just can’t face taking more than a year out of your life to go through a treatment? Or is it the comments that you just know will come flooding at you?
If any or all of these are reasons you have continued to live unhappily with your wonky teeth, then you’ll be glad to hear that at Aesthetic Smiles in Leicester we have braces that solve all of these problems. They are called Six Month Smiles. Want to find out more? Great. We’re dying to tell you all about them.
Not just for kids
Let’s be clear. It doesn’t matter how old you are, you can still get your teeth straightened. All it takes is sustained pressure on your teeth and the jawbone will work to relieve that pressure by shifting the teeth out of its way. It’s a matter of dissolving and rebuilding the bone, and it can be done at any age, although it does take longer as you get older.
Keeping up a professional image
No one is going to call you brace face or Metal Micky with Six Month Smiles because these ultra-discreet braces are made from small clear ceramic brackets strung together with one wire that is coated in a tooth-coloured material. The whole effect means the braces blend in with your teeth rather than overwhelming them.
A matter of time
Six Month Smiles are so-called because that is the average amount of time they take to move your front 6-8 teeth into alignment. It could take as little as 4 months or as long as 9, but no longer. So, treatment is over almost before it’s begun.
If anyone does comment on your braces, they’ll have to be up close to see them and they are more likely to say, “Wow! What brilliant braces! Where can I get them?” than anything else.
Want to find out more? Give us a call and book a consultation. You’ll soon be on your way to a fabulous new smile.
Are you unhappy with your smile but reluctant to wear metal braces due to aesthetic or practical considerations? Luckily, dental technology has evolved in recent years and patients can now straighten their teeth with alternative, more discreet methods. Six Month Smiles is one of them.
At Aesthetic Smiles, Six Month Smiles is an innovative treatment that can help you achieve straighter teeth in six months or less. Six Month Smiles braces are clear and use less force to move your teeth into their position, giving you a more comfortable experience and significantly decreasing the time it takes to deliver effective results.
An innovative way of straightening your teeth
Traditional metal braces have been used for teeth straightening for many years. However, wearing them comes with certain disadvantages. Metal braces are visible and can make you self-conscious every time you smile. Plus, they are uncomfortable and often take at least a year or two to have the desired effect. Moreover, metal braces are difficult to clean properly and restrict the type of foods you can consume.
How can Six Month Smiles braces help?
Six Month Smiles braces cut the time it takes to straighten your teeth by half, or even more. The treatment consists of tooth-coloured brackets and wires and uses less force to move the teeth, which can make the treatment process more comfortable. However, unlike regular braces, Six Month Smiles braces focus only on the front teeth and cannot move or alter your bite.
Patients who opt for this treatment, will need to wear a retainer once the treatment has been completed to maintain the new position of their teeth. The retainer is fixed to the teeth and can be worn on a permanent basis or as a removable retainer.
Who can have Six Month Smiles braces?
Most patients can use Six Month Smiles to straighten their teeth as long as they are 16 years or older. If you have moderately crooked and spaced teeth and you are not looking for a major alteration in your bite, this may be the ideal solution for you. Most adults are good candidates for this type of treatment.
Many adults spend a lot of time covering their mouths when they laugh, smile or talk. They feel trapped with wonky teeth because they do not want to wear metal braces for years on end or they are concerned about teeth straightening costs. Now, there is an effective, safe and affordable treatment that fits your lifestyle and budget. Six Month Smiles follow the traditional principles of teeth straightening with a modern twist for faster, subtle treatment.
At Aesthetic Smiles, we appreciate that many adults are interested in teeth straightening treatments, but do not want metal braces. That’s why we are excited to offer Six Month Smiles in Leicester – a new, innovative treatment option that can create the gorgeous results you deserve in as little as six months.
How can teeth be straightened in only six months?
Six Month Smiles employs the latest technology and techniques in dentistry to move your teeth into their right position quickly and safely. It consists of tooth-coloured braces that are barely visible, while the wires are usually tooth-coloured as well for maximum discretion.
Six Month Smiles braces use low pressure to shift your teeth without pain. Many people erroneously think that the fast-tracked treatment, is temporary, but that is not true. Six Month Smiles works just like regular braces, but with an emphasis on the cosmetic appearance of your teeth rather than the position of your bite.
The secret behind quick treatment is the use of special nickel titanium wires and a primary focus of only moving the teeth that show when you smile. As their name suggests, the average treatment time with these braces is just six months, depending on each individual case.
Although predominantly a cosmetic treatment, Six Month Smiles can also improve your oral health significantly. Straighter teeth are healthier teeth, because they are easier to clean.
Am I eligible?
Six Month Smiles are very convenient because they appeal to almost everyone with healthy teeth and gums. If you are an adult (15 years and older) with crooked or spaced teeth and you are not looking for a major modification to your bite, Six Month Smiles are ideal for you.
Cosmetic braces such as 6 Month Smiles offer an excellent way to straighten adult teeth quickly and discreetly.

At our Leicesterdental practice we have used 6 Month Smiles to successfully straighten many patients’ teeth. If you are interested in improving the appearance of your smile with cosmetic braces, we invite you to join us here at our practice for a consultation.
Many people still believe that orthodontics has to equal metal braces. Whilst 6 Month Smiles are braces, they are very different to the appliances your friends may have worn at school. Gone are the metal train tracks; these braces comprise clear brackets and tooth-coloured nickel-titanium wires that blend in well with the natural colour of your teeth, meaning they are not immediately obvious in everyday life.
We use 6 Month Smiles to correct misaligned, crooked, or crowded front teeth. If you are interested in this treatment, your dentist will examine your teeth to assess whether this is the best treatment option for you.
Whilst 6 Month Smiles are designed primarily for aesthetic correction of the front teeth, we also offer a number of other discreet brace systems at our Leicester clinic, meaning that your dentist will find the perfect solution for you, whatever your needs may be.
Six months is the average treatment time, and the length of treatment will depend on the type and amount of correction that is needed. Some cases are complete in as little as three months, meaning this is often the perfect treatment before a special occasion such as a wedding.
Cosmetic braces such as 6 Month Smiles offer your dentist a fast and discreet way to realign your front teeth. They are just one of the orthodontic options available to adult patients from Aesthetic Smiles in Leicester.
What are cosmetic braces?
Braces remain one of the best ways to straighten teeth, and cosmetic braces apply the traditional principles of orthodontics in a modern way. Systems such as 6 Month Smiles are specifically designed to improve the aesthetic appearance of your smile quickly and discreetly, working in an average of just six months because they focus on the front teeth – those that show when you smile.
As well as being fast-acting, 6 Month Smiles braces are also subtler than traditional orthodontic treatment, because they comprise tooth-coloured nickel-titanium wires and clear ceramic brackets, meaning they blend in better with the natural colour of your teeth. They are just one of the discreet orthodontic products available from our Leicester dental practice; if you are interested in this type of treatment your dentist will first want you to have an orthodontic consultation.
Your 6 Month Smiles Consultation
When you come to our Leicester dental practice for your 6 Month Smiles consultation, you will undergo a thorough clinical examination to ensure that this is the best treatment for you. These braces are designed for mild cosmetic orthodontic correction; if you require more intensive correction, your dentist may recommend a different discreet orthodontic product such as Invisalign clear aligners or lingual braces, which are made from metal but are hardly noticeable because they are attached to the rear surfaces of your teeth.
We use 6 Month Smiles to correct crooked, badly spaced, or misaligned front teeth. The short treatment times mean that this can be the perfect way to boost your smile before a special occasion.
Many adults dream of having straighter teeth, but the thought of wearing traditional metal braces is a nightmare. Whilst braces remain, in many cases, the best method of straightening teeth (giving your dentist or orthodontist maximum control over tooth movement) it’s not hard to understand why obvious metal braces are incompatible with busy adult lifestyles.
At Aesthetic Smiles dental practice in Leicester, we offer a more discreet alternative: Six Month Smiles cosmetic braces.
Six Month Smiles are orthodontics for the 21st Century. They take the traditional principles of orthodontics and modernise them, acting far more quickly than standard braces whilst also blending in with the natural colour of your teeth.
These braces are made from clear ceramic brackets and tooth-coloured nickel-titanium wires, so they are not immediately obvious in everyday life. As the name indicates, average treatment time is just six months, with some cases being complete in as little as three months.
Six Month Smiles are cosmetic braces, which means they are not designed for major orthodontic correction. They work so quickly because they focus on the front six to eight teeth – those that are on show when you flash a smile.
It’s also worth remembering that, while these are first and foremost designed for cosmetic correction, Six Month Smiles are also beneficial to your oral health. Straighter teeth are healthier teeth, because they are easier to keep clean. With fewer gaps in which particles of food can get trapped and plaque or tartar can build up, your chances of developing tooth decay and gum disease are reduced – with good dental hygiene and regular visits to our Leicester dental practice, of course.
Six Month Smiles are also more comfortable than traditional braces. Once treatment is complete you will need to wear a retainer in order to ensure your teeth stay in their new position.
At Leicester dental practice Aesthetic Smiles, we have seen an increasing demand for 6 Month Smiles – a cosmetic brace system with an average treatment time of just half a year. If you have crooked, misaligned, or poorly spaced teeth that are stopping you from smiling, these braces could be the perfect solution. And if you’re worried about having a mouth full of metal – even for just six months – let us put your fears to bed. . .
Unlike traditional metal braces, 6 Month Smiles are designed with discretion in mind. They comprise clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires, meaning they blend in with the natural colour of your teeth so are not immediately noticeable. They are just one of the discreet orthodontic options available at our Leicester dental practice.
How treatment works
Braces remain the best option for teeth straightening in many cases, giving your dentist or orthodontist maximum control over the movement of each tooth. While 6 Month Smiles use the traditional principles of orthodontics, they have been modified and modernised to work both quickly and discreetly.
Average treatment time with 6 Month Smiles is just six months – many cases are complete in an even shorter time period. They work so quickly because they focus on the teeth that show when you smile, utilising gentle forces to move them into a better position.
Our 6 Month Smiles-certified dentist at our Leicester clinic uses a special assessment tool to work out if this is the best orthodontic treatment for you at your initial consultation. If you both agree to go ahead with treatment, your dentist will create a custom-made treatment plan, detailing the length of your procedure and the projected costs of treatment.
Subtle braces, such as 6 Month Smiles and Quick Straight Teeth, are fast-acting cosmetic orthodontic devices designed to improve the appearance of your smile in a matter of months. Aesthetic Smiles in Leicester is committed to helping all patients achieve the smile of their dreams. If worry about the alignment or positioning your teeth is stopping you from smiling, read on to discover how discreet orthodontic treatment can help. . .
Braces – a mouth full of metal?
Many people still picture traditional metal wire and bracket appliances when they hear such words as “braces” or “orthodontics”. Yes, these are one treatment option, and are very effective, particularly where more major orthodontic correction is required. But they are by no means the only way your dentist or orthodontist can straighten your teeth.
Orthodontics has seen a number of significant advances over recent years, and many discreet devices have been developed with adult patients in mind. These include clear aligners and tooth-coloured braces. 6 Month Smiles fall into the latter category.

How do they work so quickly? The secret is simple: 6 Month Smiles focus on the teeth that show when you smile, significantly shortening treatment times. They are designed for cosmetic correction rather than major orthodontic procedures, but if you do need more intensive movement we have many other discreet options at our Leicester dental practice.
You will need to come in for a consultation with a dentist at our Leicester practice to assess your suitability for 6 Month Smiles.

Braces remain the best option to straighten teeth in many cases, giving your dentist or orthodontist maximum control over each tooth’s movement. However, at our Leicester dental practice we understand the concerns that many adult patients have about wearing obvious metal braces for any length of time.

The 6 Month Smiles system has been designed to address such concerns. These devices are based on standard brace design, but have been modified and modernised to produce fast and subtle treatment.
These braces are designed for cosmetic orthodontic correction and are not meant to correct major issues with your bite, but if you do need more intensive correction we have several other discreet orthodontic options available at our Leicester dental practice.

These braces work so fast because they concentrate only on the teeth that show when you smile.
