There is a solution to having straighter teeth without having to wear metal braces. Known as invisible orthodontics, this type of treatment offers you the choice of wearing a clear and sometimes removable appliance while straightening and aligning your teeth.
This is often a favourable option for adults who have professional careers and don't feel comfortable wearing unsightly 'train track' braces for months on end.
The technology behind invisible orthodontics is highly advanced and often gives patients a much shorter treatment time, depending on their individual cases.
Six Month Smiles have taken the best aspects of braces and modified the treatment and the materials to give adults a common-sense, cosmetic solution that fits your lifestyle.

An innovative cosmetic orthodontic procedure that straightens the front teeth, producing aesthetic results in as few as 8 weeks at an affordable price for you.
It is not a replacement for conventional orthodontic treatment but is aimed at the "social 6," involving simple corrections that can be carried out easily by your accredited Cfast dentist.
By using aesthetically pleasing clear brackets and tooth-coloured nickel-titanium wires placed on the front surface of the teeth, Cfast is readily accepted and proving hugely popular across the world.
Unlike many clear aligner systems, the movement is more predictable and is typically completed faster with the average treatment time being just 5 months.
Cfast is very discreet and hard to notice unless people get really close, Cfast will not affect your speech or eating, we have placed them on some very famous people without the press ever knowing.
How do the teeth move?
The animation to the right shows how the thin nickel-titanium wires that clip into the tooth-coloured brackets, which are precisely placed onto your teeth gently pull the front 6 teeth back into alignment to give a more pleasing cosmetic result.
The Inman Aligner is designed to correct adult relapse and misaligned teeth. It is barely visible, apart from a single clear wire, and it is a removable orthodontic appliance, allowing the wearer to go brace-free for important occasions.
Like a retainer but has advantages over a retainer:
Can correct moderate crowding and rotation of teeth
More comfortable to wear as the spring is made of nickel-titanium rather than stainless steel
No retention problems
It also has advantages over Invisalign:
Less hassle and expense in a shorter period of time
Achieve great results with just one appliance
However the Inman Aligner is only used for treating the top and bottom front teeth whereas invisalign can treat full arches (all your teeth).
