In this blog, you can read about a living, real life experience of taking the 6 Month Smile from our very own Claire Witchell.
Claire has read all the literature, seen all the promo videos and watched all the celebs on TV, that undergo treatment to get that perfect smile.
Claire said “Many people worry about their smiles and shy away from the camera because they are self-conscious or embarrassed by the colour or condition of their teeth. There are many treatments and even places on the high street that claim to give you a better, whiter smile, so which one should you trust and choose”?
Practice what you preach they say and that’s exactly what Claire has done at Cherry Tree Dental Care.
Claire, despite being Practice Manager at Cherry Tree Dental Care was frustrated with the alignment and colouring of her teeth. Claire says “Working in a Dental Practice, I talk to patients and the dentists every day about whiter, straighter, healthier teeth. Everywhere you go from celebs to close friends, TV and magazines, even reading articles on your iPad, teeth whitening is all the rage and everyone claims to be able to get it better than anyone else. So I decided to give it a go!”
CherryTree Dentist Dr. Dadabahai is a qualified ‘Six Month Smile’ Dentist. The 6 month smile considers the condition, alignment, re-alignment and colouring of your teeth.
Claire recalls, “Dr. Dadabahai approached me while I was having my regular check up. He had told me about the training and qualification he had achieved and that the 6 month smile was becoming very popular in the UK. Of course he then asked if I fancied having the six month smile makeover?”.
“I like to talk alot, so how will this affect me?”
“After much deliberation about how much this would affect my day to day living and especially talking (as anyone that knows me knows, I like to talk a lot of), I decided to go for it. Once the decision was made, I was in the chair having my free consultation”.
Two weeks later and after a full X-Ray had been taken Claire was fitted with a six month smile! Claire beams, “I’m not going to lie, this felt slightly uncomfortable and a little sore at first. Within a few days though, everything seemed to settle down and I was already starting to notice movement (teeth alignment)”.
“Apart from avoiding certain obvious foods that colour and stain teeth (like red wine), I began to enjoy the experience. I then had a monthly check up for the next 5 months. Throughout the time, I could feel the changes taking place and it wan’t causing me a little discomfort for 2 or 3 days”.
6 Months later…
Finally after six months and two weeks the 6 month smile kit was ready to be removed.
Claire says “First I had an impression taken for my retainers. The retainers are used to keep my teeth in place once the braces were removed”.
“Then came the moment of truth. It wasn’t just me that wanted to see the result, I had 4 nurses hovering over me (don’t worry you won’t have this, it’s just because I was the first person), looking on in anticipation”.
“Wow, the result was perfect and as you can see from the before and after pictures I now have lovely straight teeth with no cross over at the front.
I also took the opportunity of the free whitening offer that came with six month smile to complete the look”.
Claire says she would definately recommend this treatment to anybody, especially those conscious of their smile.
“To work in a Dental Practice and be able to experience the treatment for myself has been really good experience. I have complements continuously from friends and family and even patients and never have to worry about how they will look in pictures”.
If you have any insecurities or are unhappy with your teeth in anyway, this is a treatment with little inconvenience to your everyday life and most importantly deliver a great result.
