Six Month Smiles Recognised Provider

We are delighted to announce that dentist Ursula Mulholland has been awarded the Six Month Smiles recognised provider logo.  This is only given to dentists with a growing base and particular interest in the provision of cosmetic braces for their patients.




Six month smiles is a revolutionary combination of proven orthodontics techniques, modern materials and innovative thought. It uses specialised clear braces to gently move the teeth in an average of just six months.  It is typically less expensive than traditional braces, aligner therapy and veneers.



The key components of the treatment are the use of tooth coloured nickel titanium wires with translucent brackets. The primary focus is to gently move the teeth in the smile line, that is, the teeth we show when we talk, laugh and smile.



With interest free credit available, why not book your free consultation today on 028 7032 7057. Our reception team will be happy to answer your queries and make an appointment to suit you!
