Six Month Smiles®

Straight Teeth in Less Time

We proudly offer the popular Six Month Smile® – the innovative system for adults aged 16 and up with crooked or misaligned front teeth looking for a fast track way to achieve a beautiful smile.

Achieve your desired results – fast!

With more and more people choosing to have orthodontic surgery (whether for cosmetic or general purposes) it is important for us that we have a treatment suitable to every patient’s specific needs and requirements.

Six-Month-Smiles addresses our patients’ need for straight teeth, in a timeframe that most other treatment methods can’t meet.

Similar to traditional braces, the system uses clear braces and tooth-coloured wires to discreetly and quickly realign teeth in as little as six months.

This system is a good option for adults with minor realignment issues such as extrusions, rotations, intrusions, and tipping.

A short-term orthodontic treatment, the Six Month Smiles system efficiently tackles mild to moderate cosmetic issues, but it can often be unsuitable for complex bite and realignment problems.

How does it work?

patient happy receiving the six month smile treatment in SurreyJust like traditional braces, clear brackets are bonded to the teeth and tooth-coloured wires are placed onto the teeth then adjusted each time you come for your appointment at the dentist, to align your teeth over time.

First, we will take an impression of your teeth, then send this to the Six Month Smiles lab where custom trays are created to assist the dentist that is placing the new braces on your teeth.

Six Month Smiles are more discreet than traditional stainless steel and suitable for patients who desire a less obtrusive and obvious brace than train-tracks.

This clear braces system is designed to straighten your front and most visible teeth, which is why it usually focuses on six teeth.

The length of time you spend wearing your clear braces will vary depending on your specific teeth and circumstances, but on average it is between 4 and 9 months.

Additionally, this option is usually more affordable than Invisalign – and there are options for funding using multiple different payment methods and finance plans.

Six-Month-Smile Fact File

Some responses to commonly asked concerns regarding Six Month Smiles:

  • Comfort: this brace uses low force to move your teeth gently over time, which means you’ll experience minimal discomfort throughout the treatment
  • Speech: though many patients worry braces will affect your teeth, this is not usually an issue and you should become adjusted to wearing braces after a few days.
  • Cleaning: though brushing and oral hygiene will generally remain the same, Interdental brushes such as TePe can be useful to help reach the spaces between your teeth and keep your mouth as clean as possible.
  • Retainer: like all teeth-adjustment procedures, it will be recommended that you wear a retainer following the end of your treatment to avoid teeth moving back to their original positioning.
  • Speed: this is a quicker option than traditional braces because it only focuses on your front teeth, so it is better suited for those who want to adjust their smile fast and for cosmetic purposes rather than those with, for example, bite issues.
