Victoria wasn’t really conscious of her crooked teeth, as she called them, but once she noticed them, she started to look at the possibility of having them straightened. When, in October 2014 Victoria became engaged to be married and the enquiries of the possible options turned into;
- What teeth straightening system I need?
- When can I start?
- Will it be completed in time for my wedding?
The thought of crooked teeth on Victoria’s wedding photos was not an option!
Why did you want your teeth straightening Victoria?
I had started to become conscious of my front incisors crossing over and twisting, once I started to notice I could pick it out on photos and was noticing it more (as usual everyone else said they couldn’t notice it!!). I had looked into various options for straightening my teeth about 18 months before I went for 6MS but the cost and length of other treatment options put me off. In October 2014 Daniel proposed to me and I started to think how I didn’t want crooked teeth in my wedding photos, I didn’t want to look at them and wish I’d had my teeth straightened before the wedding.
It took until Spring 2015 for me to look for another practice to consider teeth straightening, I managed to find Precision Dental through an online search and when I read about 6MS it seemed like the ideal solution – I only had just over 12 months before our wedding date so many of the other longer term options were out of the question. I am also a Veterinary Surgeon so it was vitally important to me when talking to my clients that I had a teeth straightening system which didn’t stand out and make me feel self-conscious.
What made you choose Precision Dental?
I knew the location in Rotherham well having worked just up the road; it was easy to get to from work and so appealed to me in the first instance for those reasons. The information I received over the phone on initially enquiring was very accurate and I was prepared with the price and what my treatment would include. Stephen and the team were incredibly welcoming from that first appointment and explained the options available to me, with the time scale and costings 6MS made the most sense. Payment options, including finance and appointments were all discussed at that first appointment so I went away knowing everything I needed to make my decision.
How did it impact on your everyday life Victoria?
At first I felt quite conscious of having the brace on, my lips felt like they were sticking out really far!! At first my teeth felt quite sensitive and tender even to the lightest touch but that quickly passed and even with adjustments it wasn’t that uncomfortable at any time during treatment. It was difficult to bite into things but if I chopped things up I didn’t feel like I missed out on much. After having my brace taken off some of my colleagues even commented that they didn’t know I had had a brace on, so that proves how discreet they are.
How does Victoria feel now?
I am over the moon with the outcome of my treatment; I couldn’t be happier and love to smile. I’ve had plenty of comments about how white my teeth are and how lovely my smile is.
Victoria was a slightly more complex case than usual for Six Month Smiles, hence taking a little longer at 10 months. Most cases tend to take between five and nine months.
“You only have to look at Victoria’s beautiful wedding photos to see what a difference the 6MS system has made to Victoria’s smile” said Stephen.

Six Month Smiles was the ideal treatment for Victoria with a limited amount of time to straighten her smile, and provided Victoria with a beautiful, straight smile in a short space of time ready for her big day.
