Celebrities Put Braces on the A-List

Thursday, November 12th, 2015

Beautiful young lady smilingGlamorous Smiles

If the most glamorous, popular and sought after starry eyed celebrities are using them, surely wearing a brace can no longer be seen to be an ordeal reserved for the painful years of adolescence?

Take Holly Willoughby for example, one of the latest celebrities to hit the headlines with braces. Posing for Twitter, the close-up picture showed Holly smiling widely in braces that appeared to be near-invisible, ultra-thin white metal wires. Beneath the picture she wrote, ‘Brace yourself, I’ve got braces!’

Holly isn’t the first celebrity to opt for braces. Other celebrities, such as Marks and Spencer’s protégée Myleene Klass, have also used braces to perfect their smile, a reassuring sight for the general public, particularly young women who class these celebrities as emulative role models. Surely with such beautiful, iconic women wearing them, ‘normal folk’ need no longer fear the humiliation of ‘going public’?

Why a Celebrity Smile is Priceless

Holly Willoughby is sending out a positive message to people who want to have a brace fitted. Braces are an essential way to create a lovely, straight smile and will boost your overall dental hygiene, making it easier for you to floss and brush between your teeth. A straighter smile will also improve your overall bone structure.

Let’s face it, when it comes to sorting out the important stuff no amount of vanity can get in the way. Everybody wants their teeth to look and feel good, and if the gorgeous women of TV are happy to get their teeth straightened at the expense of a little metal wiring, then why shouldn’t we?

Just do it!

Braces have progressed a lot since metal brackets and there are now a range of discreet braces available such as Invisalign, a clear plastic aligner that fits over the teeth and can even be removed at your own discretion. You needn’t be stuck in a rut when it comes to selecting the best brace for your teeth, so talk to your dentist about finding the most suitable brace to achieve your perfect smile today.

Innovative Lingual Brace Technology

Sunday, June 14th, 2015

18625010Many orthodontic patients dream of an invisible solution to problems such as overcrowding and gaps between the teeth. Thanks to innovative lingual brace technology, we are now able to make these dreams come true. If you’ve been put off having treatment in the past because you didn’t want to wear bulky train-tracks or you’d prefer to transform your smile in secret, lingual braces are the solution for you.

What are lingual braces?

Lingual braces are a modern alternative to traditional fixed braces. They are an increasingly popular choice, especially for adult patients, as they offer the chance to enjoy amazing results without anybody being able to notice that you are wearing a brace. Lingual braces are essentially very similar to traditional fixed braces, but they are fixed to the back of the teeth so they cannot be seen when you smile. Lingual braces are also smaller and finer than conventional braces and use friction-free forces to prevent pain.

About STb Social 6 braces

We are delighted to offer STb Social 6 treatment at City Dental Leeds. This innovative lingual brace system is an excellent solution for patients with minor issues who wish to enjoy the benefits of invisible aesthetics. The braces focus on the social 6, the name given to the teeth at the front of the mouth, which can be seen when you smile. These braces work incredibly quickly. The average treatment time is just four months.

The benefits of STb Social 6 braces

Social 6 braces offer multiple benefits. The most obvious selling-point for many patients is the fact that they can undergo treatment without any worries about the visible impact of treatment. These braces also work rapidly and they use the latest technology to minimise discomfort.

Monday, May 25th, 2015

4207449_blogOrthodontic treatment is swifter than ever before and with treatments such as Six Month Smiles, you’ll be getting your braces off and showcasing that amazing new smile in no time! If you’re searching for a speedy solution for orthodontic issues like crooked and crowded front teeth, Six Month Smiles could be just what you’ve been looking for. Here’s a brief guide to the many benefits of Six Month Smiles:


As you’ve probably deduced from the name of the treatment, Six Month Smiles takes just six months to straighten the teeth and create beautiful smiles. Many treatments take at least 12 months, so this is a really quick option and a great choice for those who want results fast or planning for special events such as the perfect wedding day.

Discreet aesthetics

Six Month Smiles are fixed braces, but this doesn’t mean that you have to show off an unsightly, cumbersome metal brace every time you smile. These braces are fine and delicate and they are made from tooth-coloured wires and clear brackets. Once your braces have been fitted, they will barely be noticeable when you smile and this should give you greater confidence during the treatment period.


Six Month Smiles uses advanced self-ligating technology that helps to reduce friction and gentle forces to move the teeth quickly and comfortably. Like all braces, it can take a couple of days to get used to Six Month Smiles, but you should find them very comfortable once you have become acclimatised.

Beautiful results

Six Month Smiles is specifically designed to correct issues that affect the front teeth and this means that you are guaranteed a stunning smile once your braces are taken off.

If you like the sound of Six Month Smiles and you’re keen to see if you’re a good candidate for this sensational system, simply call us or pop in and speak to our friendly reception team to arrange a consultation.

What’s the Quickest Way to Get a Straight Smile?

Monday, March 30th, 2015

header_image4The field of orthodontics is advancing incredibly quickly and this means that new solutions which are quicker, more comfortable and more convenient, are becoming available all the time. Speed is a priority for many of our patients and we are delighted to offer some rapid treatment options.

How long does orthodontic treatment take?

In the past, orthodontic treatment used to take at least 12 months in the majority of cases. However, treatment times are getting shorter and shorter and you can now enjoy amazing results in a matter of weeks. Generally speaking, the more complex your needs, the longer the treatment time. However, this is not always the case, as some systems work faster than others.

We have a range of speedy options on offer for patients with varying orthodontic issues. Our amazing treatments include:

  • Inman Aligner: this rapid removable appliance targets the front teeth and it offers a much faster alternative to traditional fixed braces for patients who don’t need intensive treatment. This option is ideally suited to those with minor issues. Treatment time is around 16 weeks.
  • STb Social 6 braces: this is a lingual brace system, which is great for patients who want to enjoy treatment in secret. Lingual braces sit behind the teeth, which means that they cannot be seen when you smile. They work in a similar way to traditional fixed braces, but they use advanced technology to reduce friction and move the teeth faster. STb Social 6 braces focus on the social 6, the six teeth at the front of the mouth on the top and bottom arches. Lingual braces are also smaller and less cumbersome than traditional braces. Treatment with STb Social 6 braces usually takes 6-16 weeks.
  • 6 Month Smiles: this is a swift solution for patients who have minor or moderate orthodontic issues that affect the teeth at the front of the mouth. These light, discreet, clear fixed braces use self-ligating forces to move the teeth quickly with minimal pain and treatment time is just 6 months.

2977218_blogOrthodontic treatment has come on in leaps and bounds and we are able to offer the people of Leeds a dazzling array of treatment options. Our treatments cater for patients with minor, moderate and severe orthodontic problems and offer removable and fixed braces.

Our treatments

Orthodontics is advancing quickly and it’s important to us to keep our clients in touch with the latest treatments. We have a wide range of options available including the latest removable appliances, invisible braces and innovative fixed brace treatments.

Removable braces

Our removable braces include Invisalign and the Inman Aligner. These aligner systems provide patients with convenience and flexibility. The Inman Aligner works in a matter of weeks, while Invisalign uses clear aligners, which are virtually invisible,  so you don’t have to worry about your appearance once you start treatment.


Fixed braces

Just because a brace is fixed to the teeth doesn’t mean it has to be cumbersome and unsightly. We offer Six Month Smiles, as well as STb Social 6 lingual braces to offer a modern alternative to traditional fixed braces. Six Month Smiles works very quickly and the braces are made from clear components to reduce visibility, while STb lingual braces are attached to the back of the teeth to make them completely invisible to other people. Damon Braces are among the most advanced treatments in the world and they are suitable for patients with complex needs, providing a quicker, more discreet and more comfortable alternative to conventional fixed braces.
