You might be asking:
- How can my teeth be straightened in only six months?
Six-Month Smiles™ uses low-force proven orthodontic techniques to produce the cosmetic results of beautifully aligned front teeth. The force and treatment times required to effect changes in appearance, but not bite, are substantially less – allowing rapid, predictable results.
- Is the treatment painful?
The low-force dynamics used with the Six-Month Smiles™ system ensures that your treatment is comfortable throughout. Additionally, your dentist will discuss your comfort concerns before and during your treatment, offering solutions to any discomfort you encounter. Six-Month Smiles braces are well-known for their ease of treatment, from the barely-there, nearly invisible look to the freedom from discomfort.
- How ‘barely-there’ are these braces?
Six-Month Smiles™ will not disappoint. Designed with adult needs in mind, this innovative braces system uses the proprietary Lucid-Lok™ clear brackets with special nickel titanium wires that are colour-matched to your tooth colour for a truly barely-visible appearance. You can feel confident throughout your treatment that the only noticeable thing about your treatment is your ever-improving smile!
- Will my teeth, tooth roots or gums be damaged?
No, Six-Month Smiles™ uses lower force to affect alignment changes than traditional orthodontics and rarely involve extractions, so the risk to teeth, roots and gums is very low.
- Will I need to wear a retainer?
Any teeth straightening treatment, including Six-Month Smiles™, involves wearing a retainer to maintain the new alignment of your teeth. If you don’t wish to wear a removable retainer, we can place a bonded retainer. These options and your preferences can be discussed with your dentist before, during or at the completion of your treatment.
- How do I know Six-Month Smiles will work for me?
This is the easy part! Just contact us for a consultation and candidacy evaluation. Most adults (15 years or older) are excellent candidates for Six-Month Smiles™ braces. If your smile is marred by crooked teeth or teeth with gaps, and you are not looking for a major alteration to your bite, Six-Month Smiles™ may be the perfect solution for your beautifully natural smile.

Smilelign® is a clear orthodontic aligner system that has pioneered the integration of advanced software with 3-D CADCAM technology to produce invisible aligners and highly precise treatment plans. Using the latest technology on the UK dental market, Smilelign® produces predictable results through wearing progressive aligners.
We understand your desire to improve your smile without the embarrassment of traditional braces, with their metal wires and teeth bands. Smilelign® is an exceptional adult orthodontic solution that allows you to pursue straightening your crooked or gapped teeth discreetly. The only thing anyone will notice is how your smile becomes more and more beautiful each day.
Your dentist will conduct an evaluation of your unique teeth straightening issues to determine if clear aligners are the recommended treatment option. Utilising a 3-D scanner, your treatment plan is developed from an analysis of the range of movement required to effect optimum results.
Once the number of aligners necessary to complete treatment is determined, they will be created based on the precision 3-D digital images.
A unique element of the Smilelign® clear aligner straightening system is the Pre-Aligner, which is a clear aligner made of the same high quality materials as your treatment aligners, but are “passive-fit”. This means that they are not designed to move your teeth, but rather give you the opportunity to experience how it will feel to wear your treatment aligners. This pre-treatment ‘trial’ usage can allow you to more quickly adapt to your upcoming treatment period.
Your Smilelign® treatment will consist of wearing multiple clear aligners that will progressively move your teeth to the prescribed alignment. Each aligner is worn 2-3 weeks – or until the aligner slips on and off with ease, as your teeth will completely match the aligner’s configuration. Treatment times can range from 6 to 12 months, depending upon your unique straightening needs. Your clear aligners straighten your teeth through small, incremental movements that allow you to experience your treatment plan comfortably.
From your initial teeth straightening consultation and evaluation through to the completion of your treatment, you will have the continual support of your dentist and our professional staff to ensure that you are informed, comfortable, and happy with your treatment.
Smilelign® clear aligners offer you the ability to undertake straightening your teeth with the confidence that you will look your best throughout your treatment – and at completion will enjoy the benefits of a beautiful, healthy smile.
