Adult braces - Available now from Glen Dental, Leicester

Demand for adult orthodontics has increased dramatically over recent years. So why are more and more adults choosing to invest in braces?

For Michelle aged 50, it was a choice she had long considered…

“For the first time in a long time I can now honestly say that I smile with confidence, my only regret is that I should have done this years ago! My happy, smiley 50th birthday party photos are a credit to the team. Thank you.”

Six Month Smiles in Leicester has taken the best aspects of traditional braces and modified the treatment and the materials to give adults a common-sense, cosmetic solution that fits your lifestyle. Here is what makes Six Month Smiles so innovative….

What makes 6 Month Smiles so innovative…

  • Average treatment times of only six months
  • Six Month Smiles Lucid-Lok™ clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires are barely visible
  • Use of braces has shown to provide the most conservative and predictable final result
  • Six Month Smiles Patient Tray Kits™ ensure that your appointments are fast and comfortable
  • Low forces and short overall treatment times increase comfort, safety, and hygiene

Six Month Smiles can be used to treat orthodontic issues including:

  • Crowding – teeth are too close together
  • Spacing – gaps between teeth
  • Overjet – front teeth stick out
  • Underbite – lower teeth stick out
  • Crossbite – teeth bite on the wrong side of each other
  • Openbite – your teeth do not meet when you bite
  • Misplaced midline – centre lines of upper and lower teeth don’t align


What does the treatment involve?

During your initial visit you will be fully assessed and your Leicester dentist will take some photographs, X-rays and examine your smile. Dr. Lina Kotecha and Dr. Shrik Kotecha will also give you an indication as to if the Six Month Smiles is suitable for you and the likely treatment time and costs involved, other alternatives for straighter teeth also exist such as invisible braces.

Following this you will be fitted with the special Six Month Smiles Braces which are small white brackets and special wires that come directly from the Six Month Smiles laboratory in the United States.

After your first fitting you will visit Glen Dental approximately every 4 weeks for short appointments for regular adjustments of your braces until the end of your treatment.

  • What is Six Month Smiles?

    • Six Month Smiles™ braces are clear
    • Wires are usually tooth-coloured and very small
    • Treatment times usually fall within 4-9 months
    • Discomfort is minimal as teeth are gently repositioned
    • Cost is usually less than traditional braces
  • How to straighten teeth in six months

    The Six Month Smiles™ technique employs the latest technology and techniques in dentistry to move your teeth quickly and safely using a brace that is attached to your teeth. The key components of the treatment are the use of special nickel titanium wires and a primary focus of moving the teeth that show when you smile.

  • 6 months sounds good, but will I still have a mouth full of metal for the whole time?

    No! Six Month Smiles™ dentists use tooth-coloured braces that are barely visible. The wires are usually tooth-coloured as well. These are nothing like metal braces!

  • How are Six Month Smiles™ more comfortable than regular braces?

    Six Month Smiles™ use low force to move teeth more comfortably. Many people think that the accelerated treatment means simply “tightening” regular braces to get the teeth moving, but that is not true. Six Month Smiles™ utilizes standard orthodontic mechanics, but with an emphasis on the cosmetic appearance of your teeth rather than the position of your bite.

  • Do Six Month Smiles™ braces damage the teeth, roots, or gums?

    There are no more risks of root damage or other issues than those associated with traditional orthodontics. Since the forces used with Six Month Smiles™ braces are lighter and teeth are seldom extracted, there are actually even fewer risks involved with Six Month Smiles™ orthodontics.

  • Will I have to wear a retainer?

    Yes, as with any teeth-straightening treatment a retainer is necessary to maintain the straighter position of your teeth. If you don’t want to wear a removable retainer, you can have a bonded retainer placed. There are a variety of options that you can choose from according to your personal preference and situation.

  • Am I suitable for adult braces?

    If you are an adult (15 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! Most adults ARE candidates for Six Month Smiles.
