Most of us are concerned about our image. At City Dental Leeds, we understand that many of our patients are apprehensive about having braces because of the way they look. The good news is that braces don’t have to look unsightly anymore. If you thought you’d be lumbered with bulky metal train-tracks, think again! We have a host of discreet solutions ready and waiting to give you a beautiful smile with minimal hassle.
Which treatment is right for you?
We are delighted to have a wide range of options available for our patients. While it’s good to have a choice, we understand that some patients may feel confused when it comes to choosing the right treatment. This is where our expert dentists come in handy. Our dentists have many years of experience, and they can talk you through the options and make recommendations based on your orthodontic prescription, the type of treatment that would benefit you most, and your preferences.
We have something for everyone when it comes to discreet orthodontic options. Our treatments include:
- Invisalign: Invisalign is a clear aligner system, which utilises a series of bespoke, removable braces to align the teeth. These braces are made from transparent plastic, and they are virtually undetectable when they are in position. Invisalign is generally recommended for patients with minor or moderate orthodontic issues.
- 6 Month Smiles: fixed braces provide more stability than removable braces. Six Month Smiles is a discreet fixed brace system, which enables you to enjoy the benefits of fixed braces without having to wear appliances that are highly visible. These braces, which target imperfections that affect the front teeth, are made from clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires. They produce results in just 6 months.
- STb Social 6: STB Social 6 is a lingual brace system, which offers you the opportunity to undergo treatment in secret. These braces are fixed to the back of the teeth, so they cannot be seen when you smile. This is a treatment that is geared towards patients with minor issues that affect the social 6 (the front six teeth on the top and bottom arches). The average treatment time is just 6-18 weeks.
