Unsure about the facts surrounding 6 Month Smiles? A brief guide by Harbour Dental

When you are looking for a way to give your smile a bit of cosmetic spruce up, it can be a challenge to identify the most suitable option for you.

With the rise in advertisements of clear braces that require no orthodontic visit and are sent directly to your front door, it can be tempting to simply choose one of these instead of visiting a regular dentist. However, this is unwise as it may present more issues than it solves!

Indeed, in order to obtain that gorgeous smile that you have always wanted, you need professional intervention and you will need to know the facts and the fictions of adult braces, rather than what advertising companies want you to know.

At Harbour Dental, our team can help you to achieve your dream smile with 6 Month Smiles in Northern Ireland. Our dental team knows everything there is to know about this brace, and can assess your suitability in an instant, enabling you to make the best choice in relation to rejuvenating your smile. Perfect!

So, what are some of the facts (and the falsehoods) about 6 Month Smiles in Northern Ireland?

This brace is painful

False-6 Month Smiles in Northern Ireland will require adjusting so you may experience a minor amount of discomfort in the 48 hours following an adjustment session. However, if you feel unmanageable levels of dental pain, contact our team immediately for an assessment.

This brace is suitable for everyone

False- This brace is aimed at adults (and in some instances teenagers) who want to straighten the teeth at the front of their mouths and are not deemed to require more traditional aligners. It is not suitable for usage with children or individuals who may need something a bit more substantial to straighten their smile. Our team at Harbour Dental will assess your suitability.

This brace is suited for complex orthodontic issues

False- While our team would love to be able to offer this discrete and fast brace to all of our patients, it is not suitable for those who have more complex orthodontic issues such as jaw misalignment.

Remember, we want you to complete your treatment with a great-looking smile and if you aren’t suited to a specific brace, it is unlikely that this will be the end result.

This brace offers fast treatment

True- Like most things, it is hard to say without a dental assessment how long you would require this brace to achieve your perfect smile. However, compared to traditional orthodontic braces, this brace is a lot faster and on average, can straighten your teeth in around 6-9 months. In some cases, it may be even faster. Great stuff!

This brace can be offered to teenagers

True- While this brace is typically aimed at reversing adult orthodontic problems, due to its less invasive nature and ease of use, it can be offered to teenagers too. If you are curious about your suitability, contact our team at Harbour Dental for more information.
