If you want to straighten your smile without spending months wearing metallic braces which show the whole world you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment, then there are a number of quick tooth straightening solutions available.

Some of them are both discreet and short-term, so it means you can transform your smile in a short space of time. They include Invisalign which involves the use of a series of clear aligners to straighten teeth in 9-18 months. This is ideal for correcting crooked, crowded, widely spaced teeth or fixing an underbite, overbite or crossbite.

Another option is Clearstep, which uses a series of comfortable and clear positioning trays which should be worn for two weeks each. It’s designed to correct a range of problems and works by gently guiding the teeth into the desired position.

The Inman Aligner is a removable orthodontic appliance which can fix protruding or crowded front teeth. It consists of nickel titanium coil springs which power two aligner bows to gently guide the teeth into position. For effective results, the Inman Aligner needs to be worn for around 16-20 hours daily.

If a fixed brace using brackets and wires is more suitable for your lifestyle, fast fixed braces such as Social Six braces can straighten your teeth in around three months. It works quickly because it only works on the front teeth – the first ‘social six’ to be precise. Consisting of small brackets and a fine clear or metal wire bonded to the front of teeth, results can be seen in around 12 weeks.

Six Month Smiles are a fixed form of orthodontics which use tooth coloured wires and brackets to correct a range of problems, in as little as six months.
