6 Month Braces – The Real Benefits Explained

orthodontic treatment
How we feel about the appearance of our smile plays an important role in our lives. If we’re unhappy with our teeth, it often has a large impact on our confidence. For those who feel this way, the benefits of wearing barely visible and low pressure braces in order to straighten their teeth can’t be under-estimated.

That said, most of our patients avoid wearing braces because of long treatment times but now thanks to modern advances, you can get your dream smile in only a few months using fast braces. Chesterfield 6 month brace systems, use a simple but effective technique to correct your smile that takes only an average of…you guessed it, six months! So if you’re looking to straighten your teeth and want quick results, let’s take a close look some benefits of using Six Month Smile braces.

Quicker treatment

Of course, one of the biggest advantages of wearing our six month braces is that treatment takes only six months on average. Usually conventional orthodontic treatment can take at least 12-18 months. So what makes this system faster?

Well it’s not because Six Month Smiles braces are moving your teeth any faster but because these braces focus on straightening only your front teeth that are visible when you smile. Using these fast braces, Chesterfield patients can tackle the most common dental concerns in less than half the time. What’s not to love about that?

Discreet brackets

While our Six Month Smile braces aren’t completely invisible, they remain very discreet. This is because we use clear small brackets and tooth-colored wires that blend seamlessly with your teeth. While they are slightly more visible than clear braces such as Invisalign, the benefit of speedier treatment times usually outweighs this. Many of our patients worry about how wearing braces will affect their confidence during treatment but at Chesterfield, 6 month braces mean that image doesn’t have to be an issue.


Six Month Smiles work by using light forces to gently move the teeth into their new position, meaning the process is comfortable. Patients often think that this type of fast orthodontic treatment works by painfully ‘tightening’ braces to get teeth moving faster but this isn’t the case. Six Month Smiles braces focus on the cosmetic appearance rather than the bite which is why treatment time is faster. Discomfort is very minimal for our patients.

Great results

Not only is this system faster but it produces fantastic results too. By concentrating exclusively on your front teeth that are visible when smiling, you can be sure that these braces guarantee the best aesthetics possible to give you a truly wonderful smile once and for all. Six month braces are able to make a large cosmetic improvement using only small adjustments.

If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your front teeth but don’t want to have to put up with wearing braces for the next 18 months or more, six month braces could be the answer.
