Orthodontic » Six Month Smile
Embarrassed of a crooked smile, twisted teeth, gaps between teeth, poor alignment or crowding?
You no longer have to suffer with the embarrassment of an unsightly smile. You can now correct your smile in as little as six months.
At Garden View we offer a referral service for children's orthodontics and we provide Six Month Smiles for adults.
Six Month Smiles is a revolutionary orthodontic system that provides a fast efficient way for adults to begin smiling with confidence.
Six Month Smiles braces are barely noticeable tooth coloured wires that blend in with your teeth. The technology provides safe, comfortable and efficient tooth movement, which involves light forces to gently move your teeth to their new position.
On completion of treatment you will be provided with a removable retainer which you will be expected to wear everyday and night to keep the teeth in their position. You will also have the option of having a custom made gold plated fixed retainer which is bonded to the back of the front six teeth.
The cost starts from as little as £1900 per arch with a whitening kit provided at the end of the treatment.
Consultations are free so call or email us today to book yours.

Q: What is Six Month Smiles
Six 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 Six 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! Six 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 Six Month Smiles™ more comfortable than regular braces?
A: Six 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. Six 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 Six 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 Six Month Smiles™ braces are lighter and teeth are seldom extracted, there are actually even fewer risks involved with Six 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 Six Month Smiles.« Back to Preventative Dentistry
