The Six Month Smiles® System is an alternative solution to traditional braces which is discreet, neat and speedy for straightening teeth. This award-winning orthodontic system will straighten your teeth, on average in 6 months, and is the most effective method to give patients straight, healthy teeth and a beautiful smile.
Although not completely invisible like some other types of brace, Six Month Smiles® is far more discreet than conventional braces. The treatment is an extremely quick and effective means of treating patients with orthodontic problems that affect their front teeth.
A revolutionary combination of proven orthodontic techniques, modern materials and innovation, takes all of the best aspects of traditional braces and modifies the treatment and its materials. The effective and safe cosmetic solution fits around your lifestyle and instead of wearing visible metal braces for years, or experiencing invasive teeth straightening procedures, Six Month Smiles® is comfortable, short-term and affordable.
Low forces and short overall orthodontic treatment times increase comfort, safety, and hygiene for our patients with an average treatment time ofonly six months.
Six Month Smiles is typically less expensive than traditional braces, aligner therapy, or veneers and uses tooth-coloured braces that are barely visible. The wires are usually tooth-coloured as well.
If you are an adult (16 years and older) with crooked or spaced teeth and you’re not looking for a major alteration to your bite, this could be the solution for you!
Unfortunately, not all patients are suitable for this treatment and would benefit from seeing an Orthodontist (an Orthodontic Specialist). We will always advise you if our dentist feels this would be a better option for you and we have many Specialists available to us who would happily take a referral.
Crowns are advised when there is insufficient tooth left in which to place a restoration. They are also recommended when we are concerned that a tooth is susceptible to fracture, such as after a tooth has had endodontic (root canal treatment) treatment. We can either have these made in a Dental Laboratory or in house in our new CEREC machine.
Crowns can either completely cover a tooth or partially cover a tooth (onlay). Our Clinicians will recommend to you which are the best options for you.
Veneers are thin, laboratory-made restorations that sit on top of the tooth surface. They can be used to improve the appearance of teeth whether it is an issue with alignment or colour.
These restorations can either be made in house in our new CEREC machine or using the Dental Laboratory.
Bridges are a fixed solution when there is a missing tooth. The teeth adjacent to the missing tooth support the bridge.
There are different types of bridges available and we need to carefully assess each patient to see whether bridges are suitable for them.
Fixed bridges have been around for many years and can have a good success rate. The false tooth can either be supported by one tooth or by two teeth.
Even though bridges can be very successful they do involve the tooth or the teeth supporting the bridge being trimmed down. This means that this option can be quite destructive.
Maryland bridges provide us with a fixed option to replace a missing tooth. A false tooth is supported by a metal wing which is “bonded” to an adjacent tooth. Maryland bridges are often used to replace missing front teeth.
Whitening is a very effective way to transform your smile and improve the colour of your teeth. At Shine Dental Clinic we offer two different ways which you can improve the colour of your teeth.
Zoom whitening is a fantastic way to improve the colour of your teeth in one visit. The whitening gel is applied to the teeth and the white speed lamp is used to activate the gel.
Teeth can be whitened up to 6 shades in 1 hour. After the Zoom has been completed we also give you take-home kits to continue your whitening.
We also have a “home whitening” system, which is performed using individually made trays. Home whitening gives you the control to gain the result that you are looking for. Once your trays have been made you can refresh your smile at any stage, all of our products are readily available at the Clinic.
Whitening causes no damage to your teeth and we ensure the products ones feeling great.
