6 Month Smiles Reviewed by Dentists & Orthodontists in Liverpool

 

6 Month Smiles Reviewed

 

In this article our Smileworks dentists and specialist orthodontists will give a detailed and unbiased review of the Six Month Smiles braces system (6MS).  Six Month Smiles is a popular system here in Liverpool and certainly has some great benefits.  But time and again we’re seeing patients who are confused about the pros and cons of the system and we felt it was time to put the record straight.  For more general discussion about our different braces systems visit our main Braces Liverpool page. 

 

 

Here at Smileworks we have no commercial affiliations with any of the providers of braces systems and are free to make clinical judgments based on what we consider is in your best interests.  We also have both general dentists and a specialist orthodontist, Dr Laurence Masters.  You can find him on the specialist register here.  This means that we can give you a broad range of experiences to help you make informed decisions about treatment.

 

 

Our dentists and orthodontists have a huge amount of experience and have seen every conceivable type of conventional and short term orthodontic treatment on hundreds of patients.  This means we can give you an even and unbiased review so you can decide whether 6 month smiles is for you.

 

 

Six Month Smiles Pros & Cons (TL;DR)

 

Heres a table of six month smiles pros and cons for those of you who dont have much time:

 

 

ProsCons
Quick (2-9 Months)No quicker than any other STO treatment. 6 Months is the average treatment time
Discreet BracketsClear brackets more likely to come off teeth causing problems
Discreet White WiresOnly for simple cases
Inexpensive (second cheapest treatment at Smileworks) Wires can discolour on brushing
No need for a specialist orthodontistYou might not be suitable
Can take longer than six months (patient expectations)

 

 

What is Short Term Orthodontics (STO)?

 

Six month smiles is a type of braces called short term orthodontics.  Confusingly this means that your treatment is done by a general dentist and not a specialist orthodontist.  In fact the system is designed precisely so non-specialist dentists can use it to correct simple and straight forward cases.  So any type of dentist can use Six Month Smiles.  You don’t need the expertise of an orthodontist to use this system.  In fact, an orthodontist would have no reason to use 6MS because they can literally put together the same package for you using their specialist skills.  Invisalign is the removable system that sits on the fence because orthodontists and general dentists like to use it. You can read about that in our main article here: Invisalign®.  Or to read our helpful price comparison take a look at this page: Invisalign prices.

 

 

 

The manufacturers of six month smiles say theyre an innovative system for the following reasons:

 

 

– Average treatment times of only six months

– Our Lucid-Lok® clear brackets and tooth-colored wires are barely visible

– Use of braces has been shown to provide the most conservative and predictable final result

– Our Patient Tray Kits ensure that your appointments are fast and comfortable

– Low forces and short term overall orthodontic treatment times increase comfort, safety, and hygiene.

– Were typically less expensive than traditional braces, aligner therapy, or veneers.

 

 

Here at Smileworks we gathered our team of experts to see whether we agree with these claims.

 

Average treatment times of only six months

 

Six months is an average treatment time.  But its not the maximum treatment time’ as many patients think.  So some cases will be done in 2 months and some will take 10 months.  They have taken all the treatments and come up with the average.  It also has a nice ring to it.  But statistically speaking your case has a 50% chance of taking longer than six months.  If your case is not straight forward,  however, then there is a 0% chance of it taking 6 months.

 

 

So are these braces faster than other systems?  Dentist Tom Hedge, DDS from Houston puts it very succinctly in his Real Self review;

 

Teeth can only move so fast.  The rate of movement is not determined by the type of braces or how frequently they are adjusted Orthodontics can only be “accelerated” by setting limited goals and/or choosing a less than satisfactory outcome.

 

 

So the reason it takes, on average, six months is because the cases are simple.  Theres no magic technology moving your teeth faster.

 

 

Here at Smileworks we offer 6MS and other similar systems called short term orthodontics.  These systems are faster because they only move the front teeth or what dentists call the social six. 

 

 

Heres what our general dentist, Dr MJ Rowland-Warmann  said about short term orthodontics;

 

“There are a tonne of STO on the market such as 6 month smiles, CFAST, Quick straight teeth, Fastbraces… there are so many!  The most important thing to bear in mind is that STO is for mild cases only that don’t need comprehensive adjustment of the bite and the way the teeth work together; it is mainly to correct the aesthetic appearance of the teeth without really treating the underlying causes of why the teeth are misaligned in the first place.”

 

 

So its becoming clear that short term ortho treatments are only for mild cases.  This seems a pretty important factor and many of the problems that we see with 6MS is nothing to do with the braces themselves but to do with dentists possibly trying to do too much with an inherently limited system.

 

 

Its also a fact that these systems are not any faster than other types of braces, they just have less far to go and are consequently done in less time.  Saying they are fast is perhaps a little misleading.  Its like saying one runner is faster than the other because she ran 100m in less time than it took someone else to run a mile!  So lets look at the next innovation.

 

 

Our Lucid-Lok® clear brackets and tooth-colored wires are barely visible

 

Its difficult to say what words like barely visible or ‘invisible mean.  So heres some pictures and you can judge for yourself.

 

Six Month Smile braces

 

6 Month Smile brackets

 

6MS before and after

 

 

We literally got the first few images that came up on google and havent edited them or searched for good or bad examples.  In fact, I would imagine these patients smiling on selfies would say their braces look pretty great.  And we agree.  Here at Smileworks weve got absolutely no problem with a mouth full of metal, in fact thats often the best way for us to fix your teeth straightening problems.

 

 

6 Month Smiles are certainly less visible than fixed braces that look like this:

 

traditional metal braces

 

 

Although whether youd consider them barely visible is a matter for you.  It all depends on your personality and how much discretion youre looking for.  Heres 6MS next to an Invisalign® patient.  Invisalign® is the invisible braces system that, in our opinion, certainly could be described as invisible or barely visible.  This is someones own selfie, not a shot from the Invisalign® website. We’ve also included an image of lingual braces called Incognito®.  These are braces that fix onto the backs of the teeth and are also ‘invisible’.

 

 

Braces invisibility compared

 

 

Lucid-Lok®, although being a registered trademark is just a type of tooth coloured or ceramic bracket.  There are tons of these available on all the other short term ortho systems and they can sometimes cost a little extra if you want them as an added feature with with your braces.

 

 

As they are made of plastic, they don’t stick to the teeth as well as metal or ceramic brackets used in conventional braces treatment.  Dr MJ Rowland-Warmann says: 

 

 

They are plastic brackets and don’t stick as well as metal.  They come off all the time and this can be an inconvenience for patients and sometimes  interfere with their braces treatment.  The tooth coloured wires are teflon-coated metal wires, which can lose their colour when brushing properly, as the white covering on the wire will wear off.  Also, tooth coloured wires have more friction with the bracket, so they can result in the bracket not moving so quickly.  It’s for this reason that most orthodontists, and our crew here at Smileworks, prefer to use metal coloured wires as the tooth movement can be quicker.

 

 

Other less-visible-than-metal braces systems include Inman Aligners which have a clear bar on the front teeth, and also Lingual braces that fit onto the backs of the teeth and and for this reason completely invisible.  The only  drawback with Lingual systems such as Incognito® is they are made from gold and that makes them pretty pricey.

 

 

Use of braces has been shown to provide the most conservative and predictable final result

 

We had some disagreements in the office about what this one is getting at.  I think they are saying that braces are awesome.  This is something that we whole-heartedly agree with here at Smileworks.  Or possibly its a dig at Invisalign, and they are saying that fixed braces are better than removable retainers or aligners.  Whether this system is conservative is another moot point.  It is conservative because theres a pretty low likelihood that a patient suitable for 6 month smiles is going to need extractions.  Cases where there is a need for removal of teeth are likely not suitable for 6MS.

 

 

But again, 6MS shouldnt really be claiming to have some magical way of doing a complicated job better than other systems in a more conservative way.  Thats not the case.  Again, theres no magical conservative features here.  Its just the way orthodontics works.

 


So perhaps this is a general statement about short term ortho treatment and not something that
s unique to six month smiles.  But you can judge that for yourselves.

 

 

Our Patient Tray Kits ensure that your appointments are fast and comfortable

 

Heres the patient tray kit.  We unboxed one and had a look.  The first thing we all agreed upon is theres nothing really worthy of a little in here.

 

 

6MS Patient tray Kit

 

 

Its all just the stuff your dentist needs to put your braces on.  Also this is dentist stuff not take home stuff.  We found some brace-wax in there that your dentist will give to you, but the rest unfortunately is for the professionals to play with and not a goodie-bag like many patients think.  If you come to Smileworks and have any STO then youll get some brace-wax.  Ours comes in all the colours of the rainbow.  Maybe we should get a little for that?  Or maybe not.

Coloured Brace Wax! (Starfish not included)

 

 

Basically a general dentist has less experience and less training than a specialist orthodontist so its nice to have everything all in one place so they can do the job of putting the brackets and wires on quickly and simply.  And thats that.  Its also a pretty cool little box and we thought it might be nice to bring sandwiches to work in.  Once your ortho treatment is finished, obvs.

 

 

Low forces and short term overall orthodontic treatment times increase comfort, safety, and hygiene

 

The shorter the case the fewer chances for complications.  These braces only work on straight forward cases, so in these cases you are unlikely to need more than low forces and 6-9 months to get the job done.  There is nothing special about Six Month Smiles that moves teeth in a special way more safely than any other system.  All STO have these benefits, and conventional braces do too – you just gotta use them correctly.

 

 

The safety question is important to mention here.  Theres certain risks associated with all orthodontic treatments.  Among these is something called root resorption and can be potentially bad for teeth.  Many believe that root resorption is caused by too much force on the teeth.  But again, we think it’s actually rather misleading to claim that 6MS are safer than other braces. 

 

 

Imagine you see an advert for the worlds safest car.  This car causes 90% fewer accidents than any other car.  You buy the car and take it for a spin.  Ten meters down the road you realise that your new car only has a top speed of 10mph.  Is it misleading to claim that its safe just because it doesnt go very fast?  Thats up to you.  Is it ok to say that this car is a innovation?  Thats also up to you to decide.

 

 

Were typically less expensive than traditional braces, aligner therapy, or veneers

 

Now with the price were really onto something.  Six Month Smiles is cheaper than a lot of systems and you can expect to pay from £2,150 for treatment.  In fact, it’s our second cheapest braces option tied with the other STO treatment Cfast. 

 

 

Braces prices image

 

 

It is a nice, simple, straight forward and inexpensive solution.  The fact that the patients treated for 6MS are all straight forward braces cases means less time and less work for the dentists.  This equates to less cost for patients.  Win-win!

 

 

Our Professional Review of Six Month Smiles

 

So in our opinion Six Months Smiles is a good system but its got nothing that sets it apart from all the other types of STO treatments like Cfast, Quick Straight Teeth and Fastbraces® which are also good systems.  In fact Fastbraces® makes a pretty good case for having some genuine innovations such as their triangular brackets and square wires that put different types of forces on the teeth to move them in a different way.  Its certainly a different and new way of doing things.  Whether it works better is up to our dentists and orthodontists to decide.  And they would no doubt disagree.

 

 

Were not sure if anything weve seen from Six Month Smiles is an innovation and the use of registered trademarks all over the place is typical of Short Term Orthodontic systems.  They are basically the same but are trying to convince patients and dentists that they have special features that make them different.

 

Easily the best dentist appointment I've had. I was recommended to go by a friend who couldn't have spoken more highly of them. The facilities are top notch, service friendly and comforting. The staff were great. The treatment was thorough, honest and well explained. First class (excuse the airline pun...you'll see why!)

I found Smileworks after looking online for the best specialist orthodontist, and after several visits now, I do believe that they live up to the hype! Every visit has been a pleasure, with the excellent reception always offering a warm and hearty welcome. Due to the severity of problems with my teeth, my treatment plan is extensive and means that despite being early days, I have met with and been treated by a range of the staff here; I can confirm that they're all fantastic and incredibly thorough - everything is explained in detail and nothing is ever rushed. I should also thank Paula (and her assistant whose name I've forgotten - sorry!) yesterday for cleaning the insides of my teeth so thoroughly when I don't even think it was necessarily part of the appointment (the appointment was for a filling). I look forward to continued excellent care from Smileworks and can't wait to get my braces on! Cheers guys!

Absolutely great find. Friendly staff and MJ who treated me was professional, reassuring and positively fantastic about what my needs were and what I was looking for. There was no pressure on anything and she spoke in depth about full details on every procedure without any rush in me in making an option. I will definitely be visiting again. Thank you once again!

I had dental work and a procedure on my top lip. I was really nervous on my first visit but the staff are truly lovely and put me at ease straight away. I loved the quirkiness of the waiting room- very different from any dentist/doctors waiting room I've been in. The treatment rooms are very clean, love the design and layout. I also loved the patients photo smiles on the wall!! straight away I relaxed and I could feel the friendliness of the staff. MJ really listened to my fears and listened to what I required, she understood completely my views and the treatment I received was given exactly as I requested!! They really want to help you and they're interested in what you have to say - they love their job!!! I've made a follow up visit and will continue to use them. I've also recommended Smileworks to my friends and will continue to do so.

I went to Smileworks to have the composite reconstructions on my two front teeth replaced as well as my teeth whitened. On my first appointment with M.J I was given detailed explanations of what these processes involved, which not only eased my apprehensions but stood out from all the previous dentists I had visited. The teeth whitening took approximately two weeks, after which I had the most amazing reconstruction done on my front teeth by Dr Billal Arshad, including a flawless colour match to my newly whitened teeth. The treatment I received was incredible and the end results speak for themselves, I have had numerous people within the fist week comment on how incredible my teeth look. To all the staff at Smileworks I say thank you so much, you have made me a very happy customer.

I received my Spmu eyeliner treatment today at Smileworks. I am completely over the moon with the results and would highly recommend the treatment. The clinic itself it just wonderful really clean, fresh and highly professional. My therapist was Hannah Taffe who was extremely knowledgeable, but also so warm and welcoming and put me completely at ease. The treatment was really relaxing and didn't hurt one bit. So very impressed and will certainly be back. Next time I will be booking in to see an orthodontist. Huge thanks to Hannah you really are just fabulous. Sarah Bell xx

The most welcoming and friendly staff I have ever experienced anywhere, let alone a dentist. I felt in safe hands from the get-go and was so happy with the staff arranging appointments for me even outside of the practice. The creative and clever practice design (airplane) topped the fun experience off! Thanks MJ, Georgiana and Heloise.

I did went Saturday morning as an emergency customer. No previous contact with them in the past. I was extremely happy of what I found. The place itself & location is great. But even better the staff; They were very understanding and helpful. MJ who finally attend my case did work the extra mile (and extra time too :)) so later than 17:30 Sat. Quick/Nice/Effective & Reliable. So far the best dental clinic I have been. Definitively I will recommend & use them again.

After breaking a tooth whilst away in Liverpool, I googled local dentist and called the first number in the list. Smileworks offered me an A1 service and managed to temporary fix my tooth until I returned home allowing me to continue my few days away. Not only was the cost very reasonable for an emergency appointment their practice is the funkiest I’ve ever seen. The dental staff were all fantastic too, I couldn’t have asked for more. Just gutted that there isn’t a smileworks in Cambridgeshire!

If you're looking for the best place for your treatment, you've got to choose and visit smile works. They make you feel beautiful, their all friendly and talented personnel. Their welcoming smile alone will make you feel at ease that you're in the right place for your treatment. Their smile really works.

team I'd like to provide you with some feedback on my treatment to date: After 1:1 advice and guidance with the smile-works team, I recently attended for my first treatment (root canal). I was greated and treated professionally throughout, experienced no pain, and was informed and entertained by MJ, whom I found to be extremely reassuring, competent and also hilariously funny. Withought hesitation I can fully recommend this practice, and I am so excited about completing my planned course of treatment, which is bespoke and excellent value for money, just in time for Christmas ! Kindest regards Dave Sent from my i

Wow what an absolute amazing experience said no person ever going to the dentist. Well until now... Had severe pain due to a Wisdom tooth and couldn't sleep the night before and knew I had to finally face my fear and go to the dentist and get this sorted. Sat up all night due to lack of sleep watching and reading horror stories on having a Wisdom tooth removed and was dreading it more and more as time went on. Called Smileworks at 9am Saturday morning to get an emergency appointment and was given one within 3 hours. When i arrived I was greeted with cheer into what could only be described as the coolest dental reception area of all time. The receptionist (forget her name) automatically put my mind at ease. Normally my experience at dentists was sit and wait for an absolute age to be called. Not at Smileworks. MJ came into the reception area so cheery and got me and brought me to the room which was something out of a futuristic movie it was absolutely amazing. From start to finish MJ kept my mind at ease telling me every step of the way on what was happening and what the plan of action was. We even meditated over the removal of my wisdom tooth which really calmed me down. MJ was absolutely amazing in the removal and I had built up such a hype and horror pictures of what was going to happen. The exact opposite happened. This had made me build up my confidence in a dentist again and I would highly highly highly recommend Smileworks to anyone.

I arrived at Smileworks just as they were closing early for the Christmas break. When I explained my situation (needed emergency treatment) & was going on holiday on Boxing Day MJ agreed to sort out my tooth. She was so friendly & I didn't feel like I was putting her out at all. One of the girls who had her coat on to go home even offered to stay to help. Within 20 minutes I was sorted out & could get on with my Christmas shopping!!! Thank you MJ & the nice dental nurse I now know I go away without having to worry about my tooth. 👍

I felt so welcome and comfortable here! I admire Dr MJ very much, because I did root treatment, which I thought was painful and complex. But it only took 1 hour and I did not feel a little pain. I trust them so much that I feel sleepy! And the reception girls are energetic and full of smiles. This is a wonderful place to make your smile beautiful and confident!

Smileworks are by far the best dentist I’ve been too!! So friendly and welcoming, the waiting area is fun, the receptionist are very helpful and informative, the dentists are highly skilled and make you feel comfortable and are very reassuring. I have had metal braces before when I was younger and feared getting them again but I am happy I went with Smileworks MJ and Bambi who have both been my dentist are fab as well as each assistant that supports them. I actually enjoy going each month and finding out what stage I am at and what’s to come next I never feel anxious. I’ve actually referred two people here, worth every penny 🙂

I’ve been going to Smileworks for all my treatments since it first opened and I have not and will not go anywhere else. Everyone is always commenting on how good my lips look, my skin. My teeth are straight after only 3 months of a brace. Everyone there is so friendly and everything is explained throughly. The surgery is so clean and modern and MJ is the most qualified person out there for anything you need. I shall be continuing to go there for the rest of my time. Amazing. Love all the team at Smileworks 💕

Follow up appointment arranged to check burn on my palate roof of which I was unaware and make sure nothing more serious. Dental hygiene scale and polish carried out and very pleased with outcome. Excellent service from Rebecca and Lucy. Recommended A+++++

A very welcoming, warm, friendly and professional atmosphere. I Felt very relaxed and at ease whilst I had my treatment which was a 1ml of lip filler. MJ was very informative and listened to what I wanted and personalised my treatment. I am super happy with the results and could not have asked for a better practitioner whilst receiving this procedure. Fantastic company and would highly recommend anyone to go here!

I've recommended Smileworks to a few people now, as I've had nothing but good experiences within the past 6 months. I decided to get my braces fitted here because I thought, with all the good reviews, I couldn't go wrong. I'm so glad I braved it because the results, only 5 months into the treatment, are amazing!!! MJ and Georgi are absolutely lovely. They're so friendly, and really just make you feel so comfortable there, which is a massive plus for nervous patients, as I was to begin with. The waiting area and reception is so fun. It makes a really nice change to what you usually see in a dentists waiting room. So, if you're thinking about going to Smileworks, do it! They're fantastic 😀

I needed an emergency appt & got one quickly. I needed a tooth extraction - I had an excellent (female) dentist who gave a really good local (enough & I could still feel my face!). The extraction was tough but I was well cared for. I've not had any problems at all since and I had it taken out 4 days ago. Thank you.

I had the best first appointment. I had to change dentists because the last one was simply not fixing my issues. I was very hesitant to try a new dentist but I am glad I did. The staff are very polite and attentive. Dentist office itself is exceptionally clean. After my check up everything was explained well. Very good experience .

I was initially nervous and apprehensive. I hadn't visited this practice before but I had done my homework and went here on recommendation. I booked with MJ and went to have some work done with my upper lip & facial aesthetics. She put me at ease completely and I was expecting pain. It was so easy, straightforward, and I will definitely go back. I was a little tender the day after, but there was no discomfort on the day of treatment and it was much easier than having a dental filling 🙂 My result has been fabulous and I am very happy and would certainly recommend.

A superb experience! From the initial call to the reception team through to the treatment and after-care level of service, my expectations were exceeded in every aspect. This is a very smart, clean, modern and friendly dental clinic with customers at the heart of service. The team of professionals take time to understand the issue, explain possible causes, possible treatments and put you at your ease. This was a first-class experience and although I don't live near here, I am considering switching from my regular dentist to Smileworks Liverpool. Oh and for aviation geeks, the clinic has an airline theme which is refreshingly different to the traditional style of dental surgeries.

I chose Smileworks for my braces and could not be happier with my decision and have been recommending them ever since! There is always a friendly atmosphere at Smileworks and I’m always talked through what will be happening during my appointment. The late opening hours are perfect for fitting in around work and I have never had to wait longer than my given appointment time on every visit so far. In just 5 months Smileworks have managed to drastically straighten my teeth which I didn’t even think was possible after expecting a minimum of 1 year treatment!

Honestly the best customer service I have ever received. The receptionist is so friendly and helpful and the staff who looked at my teeth were very professional, always making sure that I was okay throughout. Nothing was too much trouble and they made sure that I left with full knowledge of what my teeth whitening procedure was going to be and answered all questions! Will definitely be recommending to friends and I cant wait to come back for my next appointment!

From my consultation to the end result I received the best customer service I have experienced. I was looked after by Paula and Emily who were both so welcoming, friendly and helpful and answered all of my questions. The consultation itself was so in depth and helpful and I learnt things that no other dentist had told me. I would recommend this place to anyone wanting dental treatment and I would definitely return.

Excellent treatment performed by professional dentists. I did NOT feel the dentist's hands when digging the tooth that caused a strong pain. I did NOT feel at all what happened:) smile and thanks a lot after 30 min of treatment. A narrative: The clinic gave me a fast track consultation as an emergency appointment when I call them in the early morning because of sudden and increasing pain over night after passing another clinic in a day before. Recent equipments of x-ray 4k that can take images of teeth and identity problems before handelling any treatment clearly after 5 min. The clinic is on high standards. It is highly appreciated and highly recommended. Thanks a lot.

The customer service at this dental practice is some of the best I have experienced in any organisation period. All staff are a credit to themselves and their employer. Friendly, bubbly, knowledgable and considerate. The treatment was top class, the facilities brilliant and the location very central and convenient. I don't often bother to leave reviews on Google, but I think it's worth the effort this time. Well done to all at Smileworks - outstanding.

Amazing customer care and advice and treatment for removal of a very painful wisdom tooth. NHS removal via my own dentist was going to be 6-8weeks waiting time. Smileworks were very understanding and arranged emergency appointment and then an extraction within a few days. There were no complications and the whole experience was first class. Everything was explained and there were excellent follow up calls to check I was Ok and no issues. So glad not to be taking anymore pain relief. Am considering switching my dentist!

I booked an appointment having not been to the dentist for a while through Kerry who was very helpful. My consultation was completed by Bambi and Ewa. My appointment was very thorough and I was extremely impressed with the level of service. I would definitely recommend smileworks to my friends and family. Thank you for looking after me!

Amazing! In order to get braces I have done a comprehensive research and booked initial appointments in several places in Liverpool. I have found out that in many of them I wouldn’t be treated by an orthodontist, but by a person who only has a certificate (and is lacking the knowledge and experience that an orthodontist has), and in some places there was a weird, cold, "we don't really care" attitude, plus I would only see a dental nurse. Smileworks keeps it's standards high, will always welcome you like an old friend, with smiles and care! Laurence, the orthodontist, very nice and very professional guy, investigated my case, went through a treatment plan with me, and I left happy, knowing I found my place and that I can trust them. My first appointment with Smileworks was 10 months ago, and since then I enjoy every visit, every conversation, every appt follow up, everything about this place! Great energy, great people and great results. It’s a no brainer, I can’t recommend it enough! Thank you for creating such an amazing experience for your customers!

Here in the office weve decided to rebrand Six Month Smiles to help you understand what youre getting a bit better.  Were calling it Straight Forward Smiles.  Straight teeth, straight forward, geddit?  This is probably more descriptive than trying to blind you with science thats unfortunately, a little shaky.

 

 

If there was something revolutionary about STO treatments then Orthodontists would be using Lucid-Lok® brackets on their patients.  Orthodontists would also probably be using triangle brackets by Fastbraces®.  But theyre not. 

 

We asked our resident Specialist Orthodontist, Dr Laurence Masters  what he thought of Six Month Smiles as a braces system The results may surprise you but they are certainly echoed by a number of other leading orthodontists who believe that Short Term Orthodontics, as well as being a misnomer is a little misleading:

 

LAURENCE MASTERS

 

Six months smiles (like many so called short term orthodontic products) are putting orthodontics (a clinical speciality) in the hands of less qualified practitioners who often don’t get the best outcomes for their patients.
Teeth straightening as an industry is worth hundreds of billions worldwide and has become an industry controlled by big powerful companies and not orthodontists and the people caring for patients.  Many Orthodontists agree that STO is all about making money at the patient’s expense.
Obviously there are simple cases where we might require basic alignment of teeth, as in relapse cases or very mild malocclusions where we are not changing the patient’s bite. Unfortunately most GDPs will take on cases that require comprehensive orthodontics. They forsake occlusion and function for “quick fix” cosmetic goals because they lack the knowledge to know which cases are suitable and which are not. This is what I call “Alignodontics”.  If you have a heart condition, would you see your GP or would you rather be seen by a Cardiologist?
These claims that they are faster and safer than other braces are unsupported by scientific evidence or literature.  The companies market the claims in a way that is often misleading and false. Not so long ago the one of the biggest orthodontic providers got into trouble for claiming that their braces were faster and safer than conventional brackets and shot themselves in the foot in doing so.  The UK Advertising Standards Authority upheld a complaint made by an orthodontist that basically accused them of misrepresenting the benefits of self-ligating braces.

 

Who is Suitable for 6 Month Smiles / STO in general?

 

But advertising and joking aside, there are some serious concerns that both our dentists and orthodontists have surfaced with the entire principle of accelerated orthodontics.

 

 

Its all to do with the choice of patients.  A lot of the time patients will see short term ortho products and want them.   They read that these systems straighten the front six teeth and are smarter, better, faster and stronger than all the rest.  They think, great, my front 6 teeth are crowded so Im suitable.   What they dont realise is that the crowding is often also present in their back teeth too.  But they cant see those teeth so dont notice it.  So a good dentist will manage the patients expectations and choose a comprehensive product.  Or refer them to an orthodontist. 

 

 

But unfortunately this hardly ever happens and we see dentists trying to treat all sorts of cases with STO and getting every shade of dodgy result imaginable.  Some dentists will simply have a go when the case is borderline and this typically leads to relapse and unhappy outcomes.  This is why you hear one complaint of this system time after time after time;

 

 

“Aaaaagh! My six month smiles took 14 months!

 

 

This is not good for the patient or the dentist because theyll often be working hard having to see a patient for double the time it should have taken to finish the case.  And the patient has to continue in braces when they want to be showing off their beautiful smile. 

 

 

R. William McNeill, an Orthodontist from the States sums up the position nicely;

 

 

I find that most patients who come in for a consult do not realise that they have crowding at the back of the mouth as well as the front. So normally we have to correct the whole dental arch Accelerated ortho is only useful for mild cases and usually only at the front.

 

 

And here are some of the reviews of Six Month Smiles from the front page of Real Self.  These are all almost 100% cases that should not have been attempted with STO:

 

 

Patient review of 6MS

 

 

 

 

This is also confirmed by a number of Orthodontists including Ron D Wilson, an Orthodontist from Gainsville who says;

 

 

In my opinion, a six months smile is not possible with any type of treatment Teeth need time to move and must move within the bodies own natural physiological ability to adapt to the change in bone and soft tissue

 

 

Many Orthodontists would agree with this statement although its clear that if the correct cases are chosen wisely then there should be no problems.  What Dr Wilson is saying is that a complex case cannot be done in six months.

 

 

So if youre looking for a perfect result then perhaps six months smiles is not for you.  But if youre looking for an inexpensive and more-subtle-than-metal-braces treatment then it will be suitable along with all the other types of STO available from your dentist.

 

 

Is Six Months Smiles is right for me?

 

Well the answer is that you cant ever know without seeing a dentist for a consultation.  Youll need to see a dentist or orthodontist to have an assessment and theyll advise you on what are the best options.

 

 

There are some things you should be aware of when choosing a dentist.  There are some dentists who are not specialist orthodontists and only do Six Month Smiles.  This should be a warning sign.  Do you think that a dentist who only uses one or two systems might be more likely to say youre suitable for one of those two systems?  We think so.  And this is supported by a whole ton of negative reviews from patients whove had problems.

 

 

Also you need to choose a practice where there are not only dentists but also specialist orthodontists present.  This will ensure that you are getting the best level of care and dont end up as one of the patients complaining on Real Self that your Six months Smiles was a 15 month disaster!

Easily the best dentist appointment I've had. I was recommended to go by a friend who couldn't have spoken more highly of them. The facilities are top notch, service friendly and comforting. The staff were great. The treatment was thorough, honest and well explained. First class (excuse the airline pun...you'll see why!)

I found Smileworks after looking online for the best specialist orthodontist, and after several visits now, I do believe that they live up to the hype! Every visit has been a pleasure, with the excellent reception always offering a warm and hearty welcome. Due to the severity of problems with my teeth, my treatment plan is extensive and means that despite being early days, I have met with and been treated by a range of the staff here; I can confirm that they're all fantastic and incredibly thorough - everything is explained in detail and nothing is ever rushed. I should also thank Paula (and her assistant whose name I've forgotten - sorry!) yesterday for cleaning the insides of my teeth so thoroughly when I don't even think it was necessarily part of the appointment (the appointment was for a filling). I look forward to continued excellent care from Smileworks and can't wait to get my braces on! Cheers guys!

Absolutely great find. Friendly staff and MJ who treated me was professional, reassuring and positively fantastic about what my needs were and what I was looking for. There was no pressure on anything and she spoke in depth about full details on every procedure without any rush in me in making an option. I will definitely be visiting again. Thank you once again!

I had dental work and a procedure on my top lip. I was really nervous on my first visit but the staff are truly lovely and put me at ease straight away. I loved the quirkiness of the waiting room- very different from any dentist/doctors waiting room I've been in. The treatment rooms are very clean, love the design and layout. I also loved the patients photo smiles on the wall!! straight away I relaxed and I could feel the friendliness of the staff. MJ really listened to my fears and listened to what I required, she understood completely my views and the treatment I received was given exactly as I requested!! They really want to help you and they're interested in what you have to say - they love their job!!! I've made a follow up visit and will continue to use them. I've also recommended Smileworks to my friends and will continue to do so.

I went to Smileworks to have the composite reconstructions on my two front teeth replaced as well as my teeth whitened. On my first appointment with M.J I was given detailed explanations of what these processes involved, which not only eased my apprehensions but stood out from all the previous dentists I had visited. The teeth whitening took approximately two weeks, after which I had the most amazing reconstruction done on my front teeth by Dr Billal Arshad, including a flawless colour match to my newly whitened teeth. The treatment I received was incredible and the end results speak for themselves, I have had numerous people within the fist week comment on how incredible my teeth look. To all the staff at Smileworks I say thank you so much, you have made me a very happy customer.

I received my Spmu eyeliner treatment today at Smileworks. I am completely over the moon with the results and would highly recommend the treatment. The clinic itself it just wonderful really clean, fresh and highly professional. My therapist was Hannah Taffe who was extremely knowledgeable, but also so warm and welcoming and put me completely at ease. The treatment was really relaxing and didn't hurt one bit. So very impressed and will certainly be back. Next time I will be booking in to see an orthodontist. Huge thanks to Hannah you really are just fabulous. Sarah Bell xx

I did went Saturday morning as an emergency customer. No previous contact with them in the past. I was extremely happy of what I found. The place itself & location is great. But even better the staff; They were very understanding and helpful. MJ who finally attend my case did work the extra mile (and extra time too :)) so later than 17:30 Sat. Quick/Nice/Effective & Reliable. So far the best dental clinic I have been. Definitively I will recommend & use them again.

After breaking a tooth whilst away in Liverpool, I googled local dentist and called the first number in the list. Smileworks offered me an A1 service and managed to temporary fix my tooth until I returned home allowing me to continue my few days away. Not only was the cost very reasonable for an emergency appointment their practice is the funkiest I’ve ever seen. The dental staff were all fantastic too, I couldn’t have asked for more. Just gutted that there isn’t a smileworks in Cambridgeshire!

If you're looking for the best place for your treatment, you've got to choose and visit smile works. They make you feel beautiful, their all friendly and talented personnel. Their welcoming smile alone will make you feel at ease that you're in the right place for your treatment. Their smile really works.

team I'd like to provide you with some feedback on my treatment to date: After 1:1 advice and guidance with the smile-works team, I recently attended for my first treatment (root canal). I was greated and treated professionally throughout, experienced no pain, and was informed and entertained by MJ, whom I found to be extremely reassuring, competent and also hilariously funny. Withought hesitation I can fully recommend this practice, and I am so excited about completing my planned course of treatment, which is bespoke and excellent value for money, just in time for Christmas !

Wow what an absolute amazing experience said no person ever going to the dentist. Well until now... Had severe pain due to a Wisdom tooth and couldn't sleep the night before and knew I had to finally face my fear and go to the dentist and get this sorted. Sat up all night due to lack of sleep watching and reading horror stories on having a Wisdom tooth removed and was dreading it more and more as time went on. Called Smileworks at 9am Saturday morning to get an emergency appointment and was given one within 3 hours. When i arrived I was greeted with cheer into what could only be described as the coolest dental reception area of all time. The receptionist (forget her name) automatically put my mind at ease. Normally my experience at dentists was sit and wait for an absolute age to be called. Not at Smileworks. MJ came into the reception area so cheery and got me and brought me to the room which was something out of a futuristic movie it was absolutely amazing. From start to finish MJ kept my mind at ease telling me every step of the way on what was happening and what the plan of action was. We even meditated over the removal of my wisdom tooth which really calmed me down. MJ was absolutely amazing in the removal and I had built up such a hype and horror pictures of what was going to happen. The exact opposite happened. This had made me build up my confidence in a dentist again and I would highly highly highly recommend Smileworks to anyone.

I arrived at Smileworks just as they were closing early for the Christmas break. When I explained my situation (needed emergency treatment) & was going on holiday on Boxing Day MJ agreed to sort out my tooth. She was so friendly & I didn't feel like I was putting her out at all. One of the girls who had her coat on to go home even offered to stay to help. Within 20 minutes I was sorted out & could get on with my Christmas shopping!!! Thank you MJ & the nice dental nurse I now know I go away without having to worry about my tooth. 👍

I felt so welcome and comfortable here! I admire Dr MJ very much, because I did root treatment, which I thought was painful and complex. But it only took 1 hour and I did not feel a little pain. I trust them so much that I feel sleepy! And the reception girls are energetic and full of smiles. This is a wonderful place to make your smile beautiful and confident!

Smileworks are by far the best dentist I’ve been too!! So friendly and welcoming, the waiting area is fun, the receptionist are very helpful and informative, the dentists are highly skilled and make you feel comfortable and are very reassuring. I have had metal braces before when I was younger and feared getting them again but I am happy I went with Smileworks MJ and Bambi who have both been my dentist are fab as well as each assistant that supports them. I actually enjoy going each month and finding out what stage I am at and what’s to come next I never feel anxious. I’ve actually referred two people here, worth every penny 🙂

I’ve been going to Smileworks for all my treatments since it first opened and I have not and will not go anywhere else. Everyone is always commenting on how good my lips look, my skin. My teeth are straight after only 3 months of a brace. Everyone there is so friendly and everything is explained throughly. The surgery is so clean and modern and MJ is the most qualified person out there for anything you need. I shall be continuing to go there for the rest of my time. Amazing.

I've recommended Smileworks to a few people now, as I've had nothing but good experiences within the past 6 months. I decided to get my braces fitted here because I thought, with all the good reviews, I couldn't go wrong. I'm so glad I braved it because the results, only 5 months into the treatment, are amazing!!! MJ and Georgi are absolutely lovely. They're so friendly, and really just make you feel so comfortable there, which is a massive plus for nervous patients, as I was to begin with. The waiting area and reception is so fun. It makes a really nice change to what you usually see in a dentists waiting room. So, if you're thinking about going to Smileworks, do it! They're fantastic 😀

I was initially nervous and apprehensive. I hadn't visited this practice before but I had done my homework and went here on recommendation. I booked with MJ and went to have some work done with my upper lip & facial aesthetics. She put me at ease completely and I was expecting pain. It was so easy, straightforward, and I will definitely go back. I was a little tender the day after, but there was no discomfort on the day of treatment and it was much easier than having a dental filling 🙂 My result has been fabulous and I am very happy and would certainly recommend.

A superb experience! From the initial call to the reception team through to the treatment and after-care level of service, my expectations were exceeded in every aspect. This is a very smart, clean, modern and friendly dental clinic with customers at the heart of service. The team of professionals take time to understand the issue, explain possible causes, possible treatments and put you at your ease. This was a first-class experience and although I don't live near here, I am considering switching from my regular dentist to Smileworks Liverpool. Oh and for aviation geeks, the clinic has an airline theme which is refreshingly different to the traditional style of dental surgeries.

I chose Smileworks for my braces and could not be happier with my decision and have been recommending them ever since! There is always a friendly atmosphere at Smileworks and I’m always talked through what will be happening during my appointment. The late opening hours are perfect for fitting in around work and I have never had to wait longer than my given appointment time on every visit so far. In just 5 months Smileworks have managed to drastically straighten my teeth which I didn’t even think was possible after expecting a minimum of 1 year treatment!

Will definitely be recommending to friends and I cant wait to come back for my next appointment!

I have found out that in many of them I wouldn’t be treated by an orthodontist, but by a person who only has a certificate (and is lacking the knowledge and experience that an orthodontist has), and in some places there was a weird, cold, "we don't really care" attitude, plus I would only see a dental nurse. Smileworks keeps it's standards high, will always welcome you like an old friend, with smiles and care! Laurence, the orthodontist, very nice and very professional guy, investigated my case, went through a treatment plan with me, and I left happy, knowing I found my place and that I can trust them. My first appointment with Smileworks was 10 months ago, and since then I enjoy every visit, every conversation, every appt follow up, everything about this place! Great energy, great people and great results. It’s a no brainer, I can’t recommend it enough! Thank you for creating such an amazing experience for your customers!
