Secret Smile at the Ridge Dental Surgery


lingual bracesLingual braces are glued to the inside (tongue side) of your teeth. These are hidden from sight and allow you to have your teeth straightened without the braces being obvious. Because they are are on the tongue side of the teeth, they may take a few days to get used to eating and talking.

Six Month Smiles








6 month smiles, also known as six month smiles, or short term orthodontics is a fantastic way of giving you a more attractive smile.


This is a technique that has been used in USA for many years that is now set to become very popular here in the UK. Hollywood stars have had this treatment and we are very excited to be able to offer it here, at the Ridge Dental Surgery, Yate, Bristol.


You could have straight teeth in six months. The treatment time usually takes between 4 and 9 months, with 6 months being an average. This is a much shorter treatment time than traditional orthodontics.


This system focuses on the aesthetics of your smile, improving your smile without veneers.


The brackets are clear and the wires are tooth coloured so that the braces are not obvious - the young lady in the picture above has 6 month smile braces on her teeth. They are visible close up.


6 month smile braces use low forces to rapidly move the teeth, the forces used are lighter than traditional orthodontics.



Six month braces focuses on the front teeth to cosmetically improve the appearance and aesthetics of your smile rather than the position of your bite.


Six month smiles - giving you a beautiful smile, faster, now in Bristol.
