Six Month Smiles Clear Braces & Teeth Straightening

A guide to discreet teeth straightening in Kent

Modern dentistry has a lot more to offer than fixed metal braces. Staplehurst Dental in Kent offers a number of teeth straightening treatments designed for adults who appreciate discretion.

Patients with crooked and crowded teeth have a hard time keeping them clean. Overlapping teeth create hard to reach corners where plaque and bacteria can build up. Straight, properly spaced teeth are easier to maintain, as there is more room for the toothbrush bristles and floss to move in between the teeth and remove stuckfood residue.

During your consultation appointment at Staplehurst Dental, your dentist will perform a full examination in order to determine which treatment option works better for your individual case. Depending on your situation, your dentist may recommend one of the following:

Six Month Smiles

The Six Month Smiles short term teeth straightening system provides dentists with a practical and trusted solution for adults with crooked front teeth. The clear brackets and toothcoloured wires of the treatment are barely visible and it is less expensive compared to other teeth straightening treatments (i.e. braces, Invisalign aligners). As the name suggests, Six Month Smiles is a quick treatment with visible results in as little as six months.


Nowadays, Invisalign is at the forefront of cosmetic dentistry treatments as a popular alternative to traditional braces. It consists of a set of clear, invisible trays, changed every two weeks. These aligners are custom-made for each patient to address different dental problems. Invisalign aligners fit comfortably over the teeth and gums and have to be worn at least 20 hours per day. However, they can be removed when you eat or clean your teeth.

At Staplehurst Dental we also offer Invisalign i7, a quicker alternative to regular Invisalign for minor tooth movement, and Invisalign Teen, for teenagers with growing teeth.
