Want a beautiful smile. Check out our Six Month Smiles.
Is a clear braces system that uses plastic tray aligners to straighten your teeth. There are many advantages to this treatment. This clear braces system can be far less painful than traditional metal braces because there are no metal wires or brackets. Also, because the teeth are straightened gradually but consistently with the tray aligners, there is no sudden pain of getting the wires tightened. And the clear braces are invisible! No one knows you are wearing braces, so you can feel free to laugh, smile and get your photo taken. And these clear braces are really easy to use. Just keep them in your mouth unless you are eating, drinking or brushing and flossing your teeth. They are convenient, too.

How can teeth be straightened in only 6 months?
The 6 Month Smiles revolution employs the latest technology and techniques in dentistry to move your teeth quickly and safely. The key components of the treatment are the special use of nickel-titanium wires and a primary focus in moving only the teeth that show when you smile
Do 6 Month Smiles braces damage the teeth, roots or gums?
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 are lighter and teeth are seldom extracted, there are actually even fewer risks involved with this treatment
6 months sounds good, but will I still have a mouthful of metal all the time?
No! The brackets are clear and the wires are tooth coloured, making them barely visible. These are nothing like metal braces
Will I have to wear a retainer?
Yes, as with any teeth straightening treatment, a retainer is necessary to maintain the straighter position of your teeth. There are 2 types of retainer – a removable clear plastic retainer worn at night or a bonded retainer attached to the back of your teeth
Why haven't I heard of this before?
6 Month Smiles is a revolutionary system straight from USA changing the face of Irish dentistry. In actual fact, it is a tried and tested technique that has been around for over 20 years. Being a forward thinking practice, we thought 6 Month Smiles would benefit our patients
How are 6 Month Smiles more comfortable than regular braces?
6 Month Smiles use low forces to move teeth more comfortably. Many people think that accelerated treatment is achieved by simply “tightening” conventional braces to speed up the teeth moving, but that is not true. 6 Month Smiles utilises standard orthodontic mechanics but with an emphasis on the cosmetic appearance of your teeth rather than the position of your bite
So what's the catch?
Genuinely, there really is no catch! If you are an adult (18 years and older) with crooked or spaced teeth and you’re not looking for a major alteration to your bite, then this could be the solution for you! Most adults ARE candidates for 6 Month Smiles
