Six month smiles

Six Month Smiles is a short-term orthodontic solution that realigns teeth quickly and more discreetly than traditional braces. It is faster acting because it focuses purely on the front six to eight teeth that show when you smile, without employing harsh forces.

It uses customised clear brackets and tooth coloured wires to gently straighten teeth, offering a less noticeable alternative to fixed metal braces. It can be used to address crooked, misaligned or overly spaced teeth, and results are usually achieved in 6-9 months.

Treatment steps

  • The treatment process starts with a consultation and the devising of customised treatment plan.
  • We take impressions of your teeth.
  • The brackets, wires and a template are created in a laboratory.
  • When ready, we attach the brackets to your teeth with a special dental cement and put the wires in place.
  • You will need regular checks and adjustments every 5-6 weeks.

After treatment, you should wear a retainer to keep your newly positioned teeth neatly in place.

Currently, it is increasingly difficult to get appointments at your existing or register with a new dental practice. We fully appreciate how frustrating this can feel and we are working hard to continue to provide you with a quality service.

We are asking that now more than ever, please be considerate of these difficult times and always allow 24 hours to cancel an appointment. Giving us this notice allows the team time to allocate it to someone in need.

Any failed or late cancelled appointments will now have the 'late cancellation fee; applied in full*, your further appointments may be cancelled, treatments discontinued, or registration withdrawn from the practice.

Please expect to wait a minimum of 8 weeks for an alternative appointment date, this will be made after the late cancellation fee has been paid.

Our team and clinicians are here to help as much as they can, please treat them with respect and kindness, we have a zero-tolerance policy.

Thank you for your cooperation.
