A revolutionary combination of proven orthodontic techniques, modern materials, and innovative thought – Six Month Smiles® utilizes specialised clear braces to gently straighten and align teeth in an average time of just six months.
Cosmetic Clear Braces System
Are you amongst many adults who are unhappy, self-conscious or even embarrassed about your smile? Have you considered orthodontic or teeth straightening treatment but been put off by the prospect of wearing braces or aligners every day for up to three years? Now there is an answer for those wanting a quick fix for their crooked smile – the revolutionary Six Month Smiles® treatment. Six Month Smiles® is an orthodontic system that makes “straight teeth” accessible for adults. At Six Month Smiles® Inc, we believe that EVERYONE should smile with confidence. Clear braces and short treatment times make that possible as adults now have a realistic option, with the Six Month Smiles System.
Six Month Smiles® can be used to treat a wide variety of orthodontic complaints, including:
Crowding – teeth are too close together
Spacing – gaps between teeth
Overbite – teeth overlap too much
Overjet – front teeth stick out
Underbite – lower teeth stick out
Crossbite – teeth bite on the wrong side of each other
Openbite – your teeth do not meet when you bite
Misplaced midline – centre lines of upper and lower teeth don’t align
The main benefits of the Six Month Smiles® system are:
What does the treatment involve? The wires are discreet, being small and tooth-coloured.
Treatment time is reduced by up to 75%.
Discomfort is kept to a minimum, as the teeth are gently repositioned.
Cost is around half that of traditional braces or Invisalign.

During your first visit, you will be fully assessed and your dentist will take some photographs, X-rays and examine your smile. Your dentist will also give you an indication as to whether the Six Month Smiles® treatment is suitable for you and the likely treatment time and costs involved. Following this, you will be fitted with the special Six Month Smiles®braces, which are small, white brackets, and special wires that come directly from the Six Month Smiles laboratory in the United States. After your first fitting, you will visit your dentist every 4-5 weeks for short 10-15 minute appointments for regular adjustments of your braces until the end of your treatment.
If the Six Month Smiles® is a new treatment, how do I know it will work for me?
In the UK, Six Month Smiles® is a new technique, but in the US, 100s of patients have undergone the Six Month Smiles® program of treatment with fantastic success. This is an exciting new treatment in the UK, which could be a perfect solution to correcting crooked teeth before a wedding, for example.
Six Month Smiles® utilises the latest technology and techniques in orthodontic dentistry to move your teeth in a manner that is both quick and safe. The treatment focuses on moving the teeth that show when you smile rather than all of your teeth, and it uses special nickel titanium wires to achieve this.
The Six Month Smiles® system uses tooth-coloured braces and wires that are only visible when close-up. They are not like train-track braces; however, they are more visible than clear braces like the Invisalign system, but the benefits of completing treatment in a fraction of the time outweigh this.
Like any orthodontic treatment, there will be some discomfort when you start the treatment, but over time you will become accustomed to it. What sets the Six Month Smiles braces apart is that they use low force to move teeth more comfortably. Six Month Smiles® Braces utilise standard orthodontic mechanics, but with an emphasis on the cosmetic appearance of your teeth rather than the position of your bite. It may be advisable to take some mild painkillers such as ibuprofen or paracetamol during the first few days of your treatment.
During the first week or so after having your braces fitted, your speech may be affected and you may salivate a little more than usual, but it should soon return to normal.
All orthodontic treatment requires retention afterward to reduce the risk of relapse. Your teeth have a tendency to move back to their natural position and retention will prevent this. Your dentist will provide you with a night-time removable retainer to wear and you will be fitted with a permanent bonded retainer on the back surfaces of your teeth.
The cost of treatment using the Six Month Smiles® system is much less than that of the equivalent treatment with conventional train track braces or Invisalign. Willerby Dental Care offer is from £2700.00. Finance is available.
