We are delighted to be one of the foremost Glasgow Six Month Smiles™ clinics, thus able to offer patients a unique orthodontic system that utilises clear braces to gently straighten teeth in an average time of around six months. By focusing on the teeth that show when you smile your dentist can comfortably straighten your teeth and give you an attractive, pleasant smile.
6 Month Smiles™ is conservative, inexpensive, and highly effective. It may sound "too good to be true", but people all around the country are living proof that this is real.

* Wires are usually tooth-colored and very small
* Treatment times usually fall within 4-9 months
* Discomfort is minimal as teeth are gently repositioned
The Six Month Smiles™ technique employs technology and techniques in dentistry to move your teeth quickly and safely. 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.
No! Six Month Smiles™ dentists use tooth-colored braces that are barely visible. The wires are usually tooth-colored as well. These are nothing like metal braces!
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.
Not every case is suitable. 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 with mild crowding or spacing however are candidates for Six Month Smiles™ at Appletree Dental Care.
