Adult Braces: Can You Get A Beautiful Smile In Just 6 Months At Any Age?

How do adult braces work in just 6 months? Do they damage teeth? Will you need a retainer? Get expert answers plus £250 off 6-Month-smiles at WeCare Dental Peterborough

You’ve probably seen more and more adults wearing braces. It’s because revolutionary and efficient new orthodontic techniques mean it’s never too late for braces. Want to know how they work? How long they take? What they cost?

We get answers from the experts at WeCare Dental in Peterborough. 

Dr Morne Williams and Dr Wayne Carolissen – co-founders of WeCare Dental Peterborough


Can teeth be straightened at any age? 

“Yes, absolutely. Orthodontics are not just for children and teens. In fact, if you are 16 years and older and have crooked or spaced teeth, you could be a candidate. Most adults are,” says Dr Morne Williams

Do braces take longer for adults?

No, the 6-Month-Smiles technique moves your teeth quickly and safely. The key is that the focus is on moving only the teeth that show when you smile. 

How is it possible to straighten teeth in just 6 months with adult braces?

For adult braces, we use a technique called 6-Month Smiles. We apply low force to move your teeth gently. Don’t be fooled by thinking that accelerated braces treatment means that we simply “tighten” regular braces to move your teeth. The reason we only need 6 months is because this procedure only concentrates on the teeth that show when you smile. We don’t focus on changing your bite to any large degree.

Do 6-Month-Smiles Adult Braces damage the teeth, roots or gums?

With 6-Month Smiles We use much lighter forces with than we do with regular orthodontic braces. And we seldom extract teeth. This means there are fewer risks of damage to teeth, roots and gums. 


Will I need to wear a retainer?

Yes, any teeth straightening procedure will ultimately mean that you have to wear a retainer to ensure that the teeth remain in their new positions. You have the choice of a removable retainer or one which can be bonded into place. It’s up to you and your circumstances. 

How much do adult braces cost?

They’re priced from £1,500  for a single arch.
