One of our Glasgow Six Month Smiles patients is more than happy to share his experience of clear braces.

During my first consultation, Dr Murphy pointed out that my teeth were quite small relative to my jaw size and confirmed what other dentists had told me: it was almost impossible to fix without using some composite bonding or veneers.

I asked him to at least make spaces smaller and he said that he'd do his best, though he did warn me that it would take longer than the Six Month Smiles cosmetic braces system.

Although it took over one year Dr Murphy didn't charge me any extra and even did some tooth whitening free of charge.


I've found Dr Murphy and his staff to be really approachable and welcoming. They always listen to me although I try not to give them too many problems.

I will be back to see them every six months and more perhaps for regular cleaning. They've been showing me better techniques for hygiene and I feel that my teeth are healthier.

It has been a truly rewarding journey and I'm happy to recommend Dr Murphy and his team of staff.

Frequently Asked Questions About Six Month Smiles

Also ask our staff many of whom have had orthodontic treatment themselves!

Does it really only take six months?

Sometimes less! This is the average amount of time for Six Month Smiles but it can vary by patient. In exceptional cases treatment can be completed in as few as four months. Occasionally though it can stretch further than six.

Are Six Month Smiles suitable for adults?

Yes, in fact Six Month Smiles have been created specifically for adults with problems with their teeth. We get many requests every week from adults who missed out on getting braces when they were teenagers or who didn’t persevere with earlier treatment and now want straighter teeth?

Will I need to wear a retainer?

Yes, this is the usual procedure for braces treatments. You will get a retainer to help keep your newly straight teeth in the correct position. It’s important to follow aftercare advice from Dr Murphy and the Crystal Dental hygienist to ensure your teeth don’t slip back into their old position.

Can I spread the cost of my braces treatment?

Absolutely. We have a range of finance options for dental treatment. Check out our dental finance page or talk to our front desk staff about how you can spread the cost.

Are they like metal braces?

No. Six Month Smiles  uses braces which are hardly visible and use of special nickel titanium tooth-coloured wires.
