Research into the behaviour of people who smile has found that by smiling on a regular basis you come across as more in control, at ease and attractive. In addition to this, not only will flashing your pearly whites help to increase your appearance, but it is also said to have health benefits, such as stress relief.

That being said, there are still a number of people who are unhappy or lack confidence with their smile.

Even celebrities such as Victoria Beckham have admitted to having ‘insecurities’ about their smile. Victoria was quoted saying to Elle Magazine, “I’m not the kind of person who’s going to stand on the red carpet and have the big grin – I’m not like that.”

As a result of this, the dental market now offers customers a variety of dental treatments to improve their smiles. A popular choice is the 6 Month Smile treatment  which is an orthodontic system that straightens teeth in six months through subtle tooth coloured braces. Compared to the traditional metal brace, a 6 month smile brace is more subtle and takes less than half the time to achieve your dream smile.

Due to the popularity of this dental treatment, we have created a simple four step guide to achieving a successful six month smile treatment.

Carry Your Tooth Brush & Floss
No matter what you choose to eat or drink, particles of food will become attached to your teeth and braces. The best thing to do is to carry around your tooth brush, a mini tooth paste and some dental floss. Similar to Invisalign treatments, every time you eat or drink something, pop to the bathroom and clean your teeth.

Make Your Dental Check-Ups
Be sure to come for your monthly check up on your 6 Month Smile Treatment so that your dentist is able to track your smile progress and make any adjustments to your brace – especially as your mouth and teeth will be changing.

Capture Your Smile
When undergoing the 6 Month Smile Treatment you will not be able to see an instant result as it all takes time. However, we recommend taking weekly or monthly photos, so that you can look back and see the positive progress to your dream smile.

Be Smile Confident:
If you are self-conscious when talking on smiling, then remember that a 6 Month Smile brace uses tooth coloured braces, which are much more subtle than metal braces. So you can feel confident when posing for that Facebook photo or when talking to people face to face.

But the most important factor to consider to have a successful 6 Month Smile treatment is that it will all be worth it in the end. Take a look at the example below if you need further inspiration or simply click here for more information on our Six Month Smile Treatment.
