I had got to a point in my life where i had started to cover my mouth with my hand when laughing or smieling and in photographs, i would turn to the side or smile with my mouth closed.I cannot describe the difference in my confidence since having the 6 month smile treatment. I couldn't help constantly looking at myself in the mirror. I laugh and smile constantly and make it a point of discussion at family and friend gatherings. I cant believe i didn't have it done sooner, I would greatly recommend this treatment to everyone .Such an AMAZING difference in such a short time.
- Thankyou to Sandal Dentalcare and Dr Hussain.
Before staring my six month smile trearment i was very self conscious about my smile.I was also unsure of who to go to and what treatment would best suit me. I contacted Sandal Dentalcare to arrange a consultation and it was one of the best decisions i have ever made! The staff were extremely polite and helpful throughout,and Mr Hussain has done an absolutely fantastic job on getting me the perfect straight smile i had been hoping for for so long. I am super impressed with the cost and length of the treatment (approx 6 months), and overall one extremely happy patient. I will most definitely be recommending to family and friends. Keep up the good work guys!.

Q: What is 6 Month Smiles
6 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
Q: How can teeth be straightened in only 6 months?
A: The 6 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.
Q: 6 months sounds good, but will I still have a mouth full of metal for the whole time?
A: No! 6 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!
Q: How are 6 Month Smiles™ more comfortable than regular braces?
A: 6 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. 6 Month Smiles™ utilizes standard orthodontic mechanics, but with an emphasis on the cosmetic appearance of your teeth rather than the position of your bite.
Q: Do 6 Month Smiles™ braces damage the teeth, roots, or gums?
A: There are no more risks of root damage or other issues than those associated with traditional orthodontics. Since the forces used with 6 Month Smiles™ braces are lighter and teeth are seldom extracted, there are actually even fewer risks involved with 6 Month Smiles™ orthodontics.
Q: Will I have to wear a retainer?
A: 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.
Q: Would I be suitable?
A: 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 6 Month Smiles.
