Six Month Smiles

What is Six Month Smiles?

Six Month Smiles® short term orthodontic treatment is a modern twist on tried-and-true orthodontics. It is particularly useful for crooked front teeth and front teeth gaps. We have taken the best aspects of braces and modified the treatment and the materials to give adults a common-sense, cosmetic solution that fits your lifestyle.

  • Average treatment times of 6 months.
  • Clear brackets and tooth coloured wires are barely visible.
  • Provides a conservative and predictable final result.
  • Low forces and short treatment times increases comfort, safety, and hygiene.
  • Typically less expensive than traditional braces, aligners or veneers.

If you’re an adult (16 years and older) with crooked or spaced teeth and you’re not looking for a major alteration to your bite, this could be the solution for you. We will first identify whether this treatment is suitable for you.

If it is not suitable, we can also refer you to an orthodontist. On the NHS, those under 18 who meet the IOTN requirements will be referred to an Orthodontist by their Dentist. Alternatively, adults can contact any Orthodontic practice directly for private treatment.


It is necessary to wear a retainer to maintain the straighter position of the teeth- as with any orthodontic treatment.
