Short-term Orthodontics


Short term orthodontic treatment for adults


Six Month Smiles is short term orthodontic treatment for adults who want to have a beautiful smile in less time and with more comfort than under going conventional orthodontic treatment.


How long is the average treatment time?


The average treatment lasts for only 6 months and Six Month Smiles has taken the best aspects of wearing braces by modifying the treatment and its materials to give adults a cosmetic solution that fits your lifestyle. 


How does Six Month Smiles work?


Six Month Smiles Lucid-Lok are clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires which are barely visible when you smile. By using low forces to move teeth gently, Six Month Smiles utilizes standard orthodontic mechanics but focuses on the straight cosmetic appearance of your smile rather than the position of your bite. The short treatment times help to increase your comfort, safety and hygiene as well.


Will I have to wear a retainer?


With any teeth-straightening treatment a retainer is recommended in order to maintain the position of your newly straightened teeth. Your dentist will advise you of your options as well as guide you with when and where you can wear your retainers.


How much does Six Month Smiles cost?


The treatment is generally cheaper than regular orthodontic treatment as it does not take as long to create the desired results. Please consult our six month smiles costs in the dental treatments section of this page.
