This system is a cosmetic brace that focuses directly on the teeth that show when you smile and will not make any significant bite changes. We also offer fastbraces and several clear brace systems to ensure that you are presented with the most cost effective, efficient and suitable treatment.

Q: how can teeth be straightened so quickly?
6 month smiles only focuses on the smile area of your teeth, which enables the process to be completed in a much quicker time than other braces. The fastbraces system allows correction of all the teeth and also offers quick, efficient and safe alignment of the teeth but works in a different manner.
Q: will i have a mouth full of metal?
One of the best parts about 6 month smiles is the fact the system uses special tooth colored brackets and wires that really blend into your teeth!
The entire treatment will be virtually invisible and people will barely notice you have braces.
Q: is 6 month smile comfortable?
Yes. 6 month month smiles have been specifically designed to use gentle forces to comfortably straighten your teeth.
It is a common misconception that the accelerated treatment times is down to tightening the wires on traditional braces. This new technology focuses on just improving the cosmetics of the smile and not re-positioning your bite, hence the quicker treatment times.
Q: after treatment will i need to wear a retainer?
To retain your newly straight teeth you will need to have a retainer. We offer both removable and bonded retainers (to the backs of your teeth). The bonded retainer is often the preferred choice as it will mean there is less chance of orthodontic relapse and you wont have to take out the retainer to eat or drink (which can then often lead to breaking/losing the retainer).
