Just as the name suggests, six month smiles give you straight teeth in just six months in the majority of cases! This revolutionary system straightens the front 6 to 9 teeth (the teeth that people see when you smile) using clear brackets and tooth coloured wires, meaning no unsightly traditional metal brackets.
Six month smiles braces can take between 4-9 months, but generally are completed in six months.

Typically less expensive compared to veneers and some other orthodontic appliances, 6 Month Smiles is the quick treatment to straighten teeth.
The treatment involves an initial impression taken of your teeth which are sent off to the laboratory, where your brackets will be custom made to your teeth.The 6 months smile brackets are then fitted to your teeth and an archwire is placed.
You will be asked to return to The Smile Clinic approximately every 4 weeks to tighten the wire and review your progress. Spaces may be created by polishing off a slight amount of enamel between the teeth, to help the teeth move into the arch.
At the end of treatment, a retainer will be placed to keep your teeth in their new position. This can either be a removable retainer or a fixed wire retainer that is placed behind the teeth. It is important to wear a retainer once completing the treatment so that your new smile will last you forever! Six month smiles is a great way to get your teeth straightened in a short space of time.
