What are Six Month Smiles?

Six Month Smiles® are a modern twist on tried-and-true orthodontics. There is little debate within the orthodontic community that braces are the most widely used and most effective method to give patients straight, healthy teeth and a beautiful smile. Six Month Smiles has 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. Here is what makes Six Month Smiles so innovative …

  • Average treatment times of only six months.
  • Six Month Smiles Lucid-Lok™ clear brackets and tooth-colored wires are barely visible.
  • Use of braces has shown to provide the most conservative and predictable final result.
  • Six Month Smiles Patient Tray Kits™ ensure that your appointments are fast and comfortable.
  • Low forces and short overall treatment times increase comfort, safety, and hygiene.
  • Six Month Smiles is typically less expensive than traditional braces, aligner therapy, or veneers.

Success Stories

Confident Dental Care Luton has treated many patients with Six Month Smiles, with phenomenal results. Take a look at our before and afters


Q: What are 6 Month Smiles

6 Month Smiles™ braces are clear

Wires are usually tooth-coloured and very small

Treatment times usually fall within 4-9 months

Discomfort is minimal as teeth are gently repositioned

Cost is usually less than traditional braces


Q: How can teeth be straightened in only 6 months?

A: The 6 Month Smiles™ technique employs the latest technology and techniques in dentistry to move your teeth quickly and safely using a brace that is attached to your teeth. The key components of the treatment are the use of special nickel titanium wires and a primary focus of moving the teeth that show when you smile.


Q: 6 months sounds good, but will I still have a mouth full of metal for the whole time?

A: No! 6 Month Smiles™ dentists use tooth-coloured braces that are barely visible. The wires are usually tooth-coloured as well. These are nothing like metal braces!


Q: How are 6 Month Smiles™ more comfortable than regular braces?

A: 6 Month Smiles™ use low force to move teeth more comfortably. Many people think that the accelerated treatment means simply “tightening” regular braces to get the teeth moving, but that is not true. 6 Month Smiles™ utilizes standard orthodontic mechanics, but with an emphasis on the cosmetic appearance of your teeth rather than the position of your bite.


Q: Do 6 Month Smiles™ braces damage the teeth, roots, or gums?

A: There are no more risks of root damage or other issues than those associated with traditional orthodontics. Since the forces used with 6 Month Smiles™ braces are lighter and teeth are seldom extracted, there are actually even fewer risks involved with 6 Month Smiles™ orthodontics.


Q: Will I have to wear a retainer?

A: Yes, as with any teeth-straightening treatment a retainer is necessary to maintain the straighter position of your teeth. If you don’t want to wear a removable retainer, you can have a bonded retainer placed. There are a variety of options that you can choose from according to your personal preference and situation.


Q: Would I be suitable?

A: If you are an adult (15 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! Most adults ARE candidates for 6 Month Smiles.
