Six Month Smiles®

Franklin House now offers Six Month Smiles®, a modern twist on tried-and-tested orthodontics! There is little debate within the orthodontic community that braces are the “gold standard” and most widely used, most effective method to give patients straight, healthy teeth and a beautiful smile.

Six Month Smiles has taken the best aspects of braces and modified the treatment and the materials to give adults a common-sense, cosmetic solution that fits your lifestyle.

Six Month Smiles™ braces incorporate clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires, designed to match the shade of your teeth, so your smile can look great during the treatment period.

Six Month Smiles™ is a revolutionary, discreet brace system offered by Dr Sandeep Walia to provide a smile transformation within a short time-frame.

Six Month SmilesTM braces consists of Lucid-Lok® clear brackets and ultra-thin, tooth-coloured wires. These components make the re-adjustment procedure subtle and less noticeable than metallic braces.

This innovative treatment provides speedy results by targeting only those teeth that are visible when you smile.

The reduced treatment time may also reduce the cost of orthodontic treatment compared to traditional braces depending on the severity of your case.

The braces can address mild to moderate dental irregularities such as:

  • Gaps between anterior teeth
  • Crowding
  • Orthodontic relapse
  • Protruding teeth

Creating that dream smile!

Here is what makes Six Month Smiles so innovative:


The Six Month Smiles technique employs the latest technology and techniques in dentistry to
move your teeth quickly and safely with clear adult braces. The key components of the
treatment are the use of unique, clear braces and a primary focus of moving the teeth that show
when you smile.

No! Six Month Smiles uses clear braces that are much more discreet than metal ones to
gently straighten your teeth.

Six Month Smiles uses low force to move teeth gently. Many people think that the
accelerated braces treatment means simply "tightening" regular braces to get the teeth moving,
but that is not true. Six Month Smiles utilises standard orthodontic mechanics, but with an
emphasis on the cosmetic appearance of your teeth rather than the position of your bite.

There are no more risks of root damage or other issues than those associated with traditional
orthodontics. Since the forces used with Six Month Smiles braces are lighter and teeth are
seldom extracted, there are actually even fewer risks involved with Six Month Smiles.

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.

YES, most certainly. A little teeth whitening and composite bonding can have the most dramatic
effects and improvements with your teeth, creating that beautiful, natural looking smile.

As Dr Sandeep Walia is a cosmetic general dentist too, he is able to not only make your teeth straight there but also look nicer!
This is a big advantage as some orthodontists only will move the teeth into the correct position.
