The Magic of Fast and Discreet Brace Systems

Tuesday, November 10th, 2020

header_image4If you still think of cumbersome and unsightly metal train-tracks when somebody mentions braces, you’ll be amazed at the magical treatments now available to those with orthodontic issues. We are delighted to offer many of the world’s leading discreet treatment systems, including Damon Braces, lingual braces, the Inman Aligner and Invisalign. If you’re after speedy results and amazing aesthetics, you’ve come to the right place!

Our terrific treatments

We have an array of orthodontic treatment options on offer for patients who require treatment for issues such as crowding, underbite, overbite, spaces between the teeth and crooked teeth. Today’s treatments are faster and more discreet than ever before and it really is possible to get the smile of your dreams without any stress at all.

Our incredible treatment list includes:

  • Damon Braces: Damon Braces are fixed braces suited to patients who need a significant amount of movement. These braces feature self-ligating wires and sliding brackets and they work around four to six months faster than traditional braces. They are also made from ceramic parts for a discreet aesthetic.
  • Invisalign: Invisalign is one of the world’s most popular invisible brace systems and it is suitable for those with minor or moderate issues. This treatment uses a series of custom-made clear aligners (which are virtually undetectable when you smile) to guide the teeth into position. The aligners are worn for two weeks and then swapped for the next appliance in the series. As they are removable, the treatment process is convenient and you can continue to eat and brush your teeth as normal.
  • The Inman Aligner: The Inman Aligner is a swift, discreet removable aligner that targets the front teeth and produces results in just four months. This treatment is ideal for those who only require minor correction and it also offers convenience and flexibility, as you can easily take the aligner out.
  • Six Month Smiles: Six Month Smiles is a tooth-coloured fixed brace treatment that works quickly and efficiently to straighten the teeth in just six months. This treatment targets the front teeth and is an ideal option for those who have minor or moderate problems, such as mild crowding, crooked front teeth or gaps between the front teeth.
  • STb Social 6 braces: STb Social 6 braces are lingual braces attached to the back of the teeth to provide an invisible alternative to traditional fixed braces. Treatment is designed to correct issues with the social 6 (the teeth shown when you smile) and this is a rapid treatment with an average time-frame of just four months. This treatment is designed for patients with minor orthodontic imperfections.

All About Braces!

Friday, January 8th, 2016

braces front teethBraces have been used to treat a range of different orthodontic problems for many years now and conventional metal braces are still used to address problems including overcrowding, gap between the teeth and poorly positioned teeth.

Many people think of traditional metal train-tracks when they hear the word brace, but braces have evolved considerably and there is now a whole host of different types of braces and orthodontic devices on the market.

Braces are usually associated with teenagers but recently there has been a significant increase in the number of adults visiting their dentist for orthodontic treatments. This is mainly due to the introduction of new, discreet treatments but is also associated with the rise of celebrity culture and the increased focus on image and beauty.

Although the conventional metal brace did enjoy something of a resurgence thanks to the Channel 4 series Ugly Betty, more discreet treatments have become much more popular. Now, the most popular treatments include Invisalign invisible braces, Damon Braces, Six Month Smile braces and the Inman Aligner.

Looking for a Leeds dentist? City Dental are here to help.

As well as being much more discreet than conventional metal braces, new orthodontic treatments also decrease treatment time and some treatments can produce amazing results in just a matter of weeks. Some treatments aren’t suitable for some people, the treatment you choose may depend on your budget but you will also be advised based on your orthodontic problems and your oral health status.

The ins and outs of Damon Braces

Damon Braces are innovative fixed braces, which use the latest technology to achieve amazing results quickly and painlessly. This system is suited to most orthodontic patients, including those who have the most complex needs and it offers a modern alternative to conventional train-track braces for those wish to enjoy quicker, more discreet and comfortable treatment.

Although Damon Braces are not completely invisible, they are a lot more discreet than most other fixed braces, as they are made from tooth-coloured wires and ceramic brackets.

How do Damon Braces work?

Damon Braces use advanced friction-free technology to move the teeth rapidly with minimal pain; they feature sliding brackets, which are easier to clean and self-ligating wires, which provide gentle, yet powerful force. The braces do not contain elastic bands and the pressure comes solely from the brackets and wires, which makes treatment a lot less painful. These braces are also capable of creating space, so the vast majority of clients do not need to undergo extraction prior to having their braces fitted.

How long does treatment take?

Every patient is different and treatment times vary according to how much movement is needed and the complexity of the issues. Typically, treatment times are around 4-6 months shorter than conventional fixed braces. Your dentist will be able to discuss treatment times and give you an accurate projection once they have assessed your level of need.

Are Damon Braces for me?

How Quickly Can I Get a Straight Smile?

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2015

2445507_blogTime is a luxury for many people these days and patients who are interested in orthodontic treatment want to know how long treatment will take and how fast they can expect results. The good news is that today’s treatments are speedier than ever before and you can now enjoy a beautiful smile in a matter of weeks or months, rather than years. We are proud to offer some incredibly quick solutions and we look forward to working with you to achieve that perfect result in no time at all!

How long does orthodontic treatment take?

It’s very hard to put a blanket figure on treatment time when it comes to orthodontics because individual prescriptions can vary hugely. Some patients only need minor correction, while others need very complex and intensive treatment that  involves significant tooth movement. Some cases may be complete in weeks, while others may take more than a year. When you have your consultation, your dentist will assess your needs and analyse your bite and they will then be able to give you an idea of anticipated treatment times.

The treatment you choose will also have a bearing on the time-frame. Some treatments work faster than others. Examples of rapid solutions we offer include:

  • Six Month Smiles: this fixed brace treatment is an ideal solution for patients who need minor or moderate levels of correction for issues that affect the teeth seen when you smile. The discreet braces use the latest friction-free technology to move the teeth quickly and focus solely on the front teeth. Treatment, as you may have guessed, is usually complete within six months.
  • Inman Aligner: one of the fastest treatments around, the Inman Aligner offers an amazing option for patients who only need minor correction. This removable device uses powerful but gentle forces to move and align the teeth rapidly, with an average treatment time of just 16 weeks. The aligner is not invisible, but it is much less noticeable than traditional fixed braces.
  • STb Social 6 braces: geared toward patients with minor orthodontic issues with the ‘social 6’ (the front six teeth on the top and bottom arches), this invisible treatment is the perfect solution for those who would rather keep their treatment a secret. Lingual braces are fixed to the back of the teeth, so you can’t see them when you smile. These braces work very quickly to achieve results in just three to six months.
  • Damon Braces: a suitable choice for patients who need more movement and treatment for more complex issues, Damon Braces are a modern alternative to traditional fixed braces. They produce results around four to six months faster than traditional braces and they are also much more discreet.

All About Damon Braces

Friday, May 22nd, 2015

18625044If you’re thinking about having orthodontic treatment to straighten out issues and imperfections such as crowded or twisted teeth, we have some truly amazing treatments on offer. In the past, orthodontic patients were often put off having treatment due to a fear of pain and a lack of confidence in the aesthetic of braces. However, orthodontics has advanced rapidly and you can now enjoy comfortable treatment that also offers incredibly discreet aesthetics. With modern treatments such as Damon Braces, you really can have it all!

What are Damon Braces?

Damon Braces are discreet fixed braces that embody everything that is good about modern orthodontic treatment. These innovative braces have been developed with patients in mind and they tick many of the boxes when it comes to patient preferences and desires. Not only do these braces look good, they also use the latest technology to reduce treatment time and prevent discomfort.

Damon Braces are made from streamlined sliding brackets and discreet self-ligating wires that reduce friction and speed up treatment time. They are suited to patients with a wide range of orthodontic problems, including those who have complex needs and therefore are unsuitable candidates for removable braces and aligners.

How long does treatment take?

Treatment times vary for each patient and the length of time you have to wear braces is heavily dependent on how much movement you need and the complexity of the issues that are being resolved by the braces. This treatment is suitable for those who need intensive attention and therefore treatment times may be longer than systems designed for patients with minor issues. Typically, treatment takes between 9 and 24 months. Treatment times are, on average, 4-6 months shorter than traditional fixed braces.

What are the benefits?

Here are just some of the many benefits offered by Damon Braces:

  • comfortable friction-free treatment
  • faster treatment than standard fixed braces
  • discreet aesthetics
  • amazing results
  • no need for extraction prior to treatment
  • suitable for patients with complex prescriptions

Forget All About Traditional, Bulky, Train Track Fixed Braces

Tuesday, February 17th, 2015

2904341_blogIn years gone by, if you needed orthodontic treatment the only remedy was bulky, fixed braces. Today, there’s a new breed of treatments on offer to provide teenagers and adult patients with myriad benefits. One of the most impressive systems on the market is Damon Braces.

Damon Braces

Damon Braces are advance fixed braces that offer patients who require intensive treatment and more movement an alternative to traditional fixed braces. This system uses state of the art self-ligating technology to cut treatment times and enhance comfort. It is suitable for those with the most complex orthodontic prescriptions.

Damon Braces look different to traditional fixed braces, as they are lighter and sleeker and they feature sliding brackets, which are easier to clean and less cumbersome. The wires are fine and discreet and they use self-ligating forces to reduce pressure and friction.

How long will treatment take?

As with all treatments, there is no set treatment duration for Damon Braces and some patients will need to wear braces for longer than others. Treatment times tend to be 4-6 months less than they would be with traditional fixed braces, which are typically worn for 12-46 months.

What Do Damon Braces Treat?

Damon Braces are effective in many cases and used to treat varying orthodontic problems, including:

  • overlapping or crowded teeth
  • spaces between the teeth
  • overbite
  • underbite
  • overjet
  • misplaced midline
  • crossbite

In order to assess whether or not Damon Braces are the perfect match for you, your City Dental dentist will examine your teeth and take some tests and X-rays. If this is the right choice for you, they will talk you through the ins and outs of treatment and help you to gain a clear understanding of what treatment involves and how it works. They can also give you an idea of projected time-scale and answer any questions you have.
