Six Month Smiles

This clever system offers a short-term orthodontic answer that takes a fresh twist on traditional orthodontic techniques by realigning teeth quickly and discreetly. It is fast acting because it uses advanced technology on only those teeth that show when you smile, and can be used to address mildly crooked, gappy or misaligned teeth. It is also a much less noticeable option as it features clear, custom-made brackets and tooth coloured wires.

Braces offer the most effective way to produce straight, healthy teeth and an attractive smile. Six Month Smiles® incorporates all the best traits of braces but uses a modified treatment style and advanced materials, offering a practical, unobtrusive solution to fit in with your lifestyle. At SmilePlus, we are well equipped to provide Six Month Smiles as our very own Fiona Mulryan is an experienced provider of this satisfyingly swift solution.


  • Fast-acting – average treatment times of only six months
  • Cost-effective – typically less expensive than other orthodontic treatments
  • More discreet – with Lucid-Lok® clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires so you don’t have to put up with metal clad teeth
  • Quicker appointment times – thanks to Six Month Smiles™ customised patient tray kits
  • More comfortable – low forces and shorter overall treatment times make these braces safer, more comfortable and more hygienic.

How does it work?

Following the formulation of a customised treatment plan, impressions are taken of your teeth so the brackets and wires can be specially produced.
When ready, the brackets are fixed to your teeth and the wires put in place. Then you’ll just have to pop in every few weeks for adjustments.

Why is it so quick and does that make it more painful and damaging?

Six Month Smiles focuses on how your teeth will look rather than the position of your bite, which helps to speed up the process. It uses gentle forces to realign only those teeth that show when you smile, and teeth rarely have to be extracted prior to treatment, so there are actually fewer risks to teeth and gums than with conventional orthodontic treatment.

Will it work for me?

Yes, if you are 16 years or older with misaligned teeth and you don’t need a significant alteration to your bite.

Do I need a retainer following treatment?

As with all orthodontic devices, you will need to wear a retainer after your teeth have been straightened to make sure they stay beautifully aligned.
