Six Month Smiles Braces

Straighter teeth in just a few months


Why choose Six Month Smiles Braces ?

Six Month Smiles Cosmetic Braces is an innovative solution for adults who want straighter teeth in just a few months. Treatment is based on a system of braces, using clear and tooth-coloured materials that make them almost undetectable.

Six Month Smiles cosmetic braces are a popular treatment at Holmes Dental Care as the braces usually involve treating the front teeth only and the goal is to give the patient a great natural looking smile. We do not attempt to change the bite to any significant degree and the results we aim for are cosmetic only. More functional improvements can be achieved using conventional fixed appliances which we also provide.



It only takes 2 minutes to apply and you’ll get your
answer straight away


Free, no obligation, virtual consultation

As with all of the orthodontic treatments available at Holmes Dental Care we offer a free, no obligation, virtual consultation so you can discuss how you feel about your teeth and what you want from teeth straightening treatment. During the consultation we will help you decide whether Six Months Smiles braces is the most suitable option, advise on the likely treatment costs as well as the likely time frame.


Discreet brace options

Working in a similar fashion to traditional braces, clear brackets are bonded to the teeth and tooth-coloured wires are placed and adjusted to align teeth over a short period of time. We are able to offer both clear braces and metal finish braces. The white braces are tooth coloured and whilst they do cost slightly more, they are very discreet.


Benefits of Six Month Braces

  • Fast and cheaper than other types of braces
  • Discreet, comfortable, teeth straightening technique
  • Quick and convenient time frame for treatment – the average treatment duration is only six months
  • Fixes issues such as overcrowding, misaligned teeth and gappy smiles

Many individuals who contact us about Six Month Braces have previously been told that their only
option was to wear fixed braces for two years or to consider cosmetic veneers. Usually this is not the
case, and the smile can be fixed in a reasonable period of time.


Payment options to suit every pocket

Finance options (including 0% interest free over 6 to 12 months and low cost finance over longer terms) are available for all orthodontic treatments. To find out more about Six Month Braces book an appointment or free virtual consultation.

Do you have a question about a treatment, need to book an appointment or would just like more information? At Holmes Dental Care we advise that you investigate all orthodontic treatment options before deciding on which system is best for your requirements and our best advice is to seek a professional opinion. Book a free no obligation virtual consultation with us and we will talk through all the options on offer, any possible risks and if there are any appropriate alternatives.



How is it possible in six months?

The Six Month Braces technique utilises the latest technology and specialised low force wires to move teeth quickly and safely. The goal is to provide a great smile quickly focussing on the teeth that show when you smile so we do not try to alter the bite or back teeth as this is usually unnecessary for cosmetic improvements.

Is treatment painful?

Six Month Smiles uses low forces to move your teeth gently meaning that you’ll experience minimal discomfort throughout the process.

How often will I need to see the dentist?

Generally, you will see your dentist once a month for adjustments that will gently move the teeth into position.

How long does the treatment take?

As the name says, treatment usually takes around six months. But your individual treatment plan will depend on the complexity of your case.

Will I need to wear a retainer?

Yes, after any orthodontic treatment it is necessary to wear a retainer to keep the teeth in their new straight position. You can opt for a removable retainer or a permanent retainer bonded to the back of the teeth.

Dr ET, had Six Month Smiles braces

Dear Barry,

I just want to thank you for the fantastic treatment I've received from you over the past year. Not only did you do give me the smile I've always wanted, you made the whole experience comfortable and it was a pleasure to come to the dentist (believe me this is amazing coming from a former 'dentaphobe!').

You were always polite, patient, professional and explained all steps clearly. I would also like to thank the dental nurses who were so encouraging and supportive; expertly using equipment that was 'patient centred' providing comfort required - may seem small, but from a patient perspective this is very significant and really does go a long way!

This may sound extreme, but I will miss having to visit the dentist frequently; thank goodness for six monthly check-ups! You really are an asset to the dental world and I feel very lucky to have you as my dentist. So again, thank you for you skill and hard work; I can now smile with confidence! : )

After reading several positive reviews of the Six Month Smile treatment, I made further enquiries as to whether it would be suitable for me. I have always been conscious of my teeth but did not want to have to wear the traditional braces for 2 years to rectify the problem.

After a really useful consultation with Barry Holmes, I decided to go ahead with the treatment. Initially I was apprehensive (particularly at the thought of having to wear fixed braces for several months), but after some careful consideration I realised that it would help me regain my confidence to smile so was worth proceeding.

Now that I have had the braces removed, I am absolutely thrilled with the results. I would recommend the Six Month Smile treatment to anyone. It really has made such a difference to my confidence and now I take every opportunity I can to smile!

Nearly one year ago I decided to go for the clear alignment treatment with Dr Barry Holmes and it was such a great decision.

I am so happy with the treatment and my smile! He is very professional and patient. I couldn’t recommend him enough. Thank you so much.

I had a tooth that needed extracting, but my NHS dentist was unable to offer a replacement. I did not want a gap, so asked to be referred to Holmes Dental Care for advice . Barry explained some options and I chose to have an implant. He explained it would be a complex extraction and may require a bone graft - I felt completely happy with my treatment plan as it had been thoroughly explained to me. My treatment required several clinical interventions, and I felt completely supported by Barry and his team, the entire time. I have now had my implant and am absolutely delighted with it. In fact, I have joined the practice and look forward to continuing to receive the expert care they offer

This was my first appointment, but I was made to feel comfortable and welcome. The waiting area is especially good if you're nervous of going to the dentist because it felt more like a lounge than a clinical waiting area. I trusted the staff and the greeting by reception was really nice too

Had a brilliant experience with the Teams at Holmes Dental Care. They were incredibly attentive, helpful and kept me up to date and informed throughout the entire process, a process that meant bone graft, bridge, tooth implant and everything in between. From Reception, Cleaning and Doctors all Teams are professional, yet friendly and accommodating. I highly recommend them.

Well what can I say this team are bloody brilliant not only are they good fun but they seem to know exactly what they are doing, from the moment I attempted to eat a bidet to the moment I became a male model with women flocking after me in their droves 😁🥸😎 maybe a slight expansion of the truth there but it is cracking not having to smirk instead of a good old laugh. Any time the Holmes team need a reference I will be there like a shot. All the best and hope you and the team grow and grow and grow. Ps Barry I can’t remember did you say it would be £20 or £25 for a good review See you in Jan for check up Oh and can you tell the hygienist I am now showering every month 😂😂. See ya team

Since moving to Whitchurch I had to find myself a new dental practise, a friend of mine in the area recommended me to Holmes dental care. And what a little gem the practice is, not only is it 10 min walk from my home, it’s been by far the best dentist I’ve been too . Dc Barry Holmes is very professional and knowledgeable man in his field giving me the best advice and outcome, and also very gentle when it comes to needles, something a few dentist in the past haven’t been! The whole team in there are very friendly, definitely a pleasurable experience, what a lovely practise in the heart of a lovely village. Thank you Holmes dental team.

Excellent care and treatment. Extremely patient to one who has a slight phobia of the dentist. Cannot rate them highly enough. Barry is both kind and understanding and takes all the time it needs to make sure any questions one may have are answered fully.
