Tuesday, November 10th, 2020

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.

How is Invisalign Different from Other Braces?

Wednesday, May 4th, 2016

header_image4Invisalign is a modern and discrete braces innovation designed to treat mild orthodontic conditions such as crooked, protruding, irregular spaced or overcrowded teeth. Producing scientifically proven, teeth-enhancing results for thousands of people all over the world since 1997, Align Technology Inc. have produced this modern braces system with the holistic care of diverse individuals in mind.

The Invisalign system differs from other braces in:

  • Custom-made orthodontic technology
  • Choices in Invisalign systems
  • Unique teeth-straightening function
  • Near-invisible aesthetics
  • Removable design
  • Convenience and comfort
  • Effective treatment time
  • Smile-enhancing results

Bespoke Invisalign technology creates individual 3D images and care plans. The Invisalign system comprises sets of custom-made clear removable aligners that gently straighten teeth in orthodontic stages. Every two weeks the invisible aligners are replaced to further position teeth into their correct alignment.

The benefits of Invisalign

Invisalign aligners are made of clear plastic resin, looking like a transparent mouth shield that elegantly fits over a full arch of teeth.

Invisalign is easily removed for eating, sports, music and cleaning activities. Speaking and eating function is not impeded by Invisalign braces and oral hygiene can easily be maintained during treatment. Invisalign custom-moulds to an individual’s oral contours for the utmost comfort and convenience during daily activities.

The Invisalign system is the number one choice as an alternative to uncomfortable traditional braces systems. Individuals wear Invisalign braces for approximately 22 hours per day. Within 12 to 18 months, individuals enjoy their newly aligned teeth after treatment. A retainer may be provided for temporary enforcement of new teeth position. Invisalign transforms the smile for greater confidence and attraction.

Smile Confidently Whilst Wearing Braces

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2016

braces front teethMany patients come to us with concerns that they will feel unattractive and self-conscious when they smile if they choose to have braces. We understand that it’s important to look and feel good and our range of treatments takes these concerns into account and offers you the opportunity to feel confident during your treatment. We don’t just want you to feel amazing after your braces come off – we also want you to feel confident while you have treatment and we promise that our treatments will deliver.

Our discreet treatments

We are proud to offer our clients a host of discreet orthodontic treatment options, including Invisalign clear aligners, the discreet Inman Aligner and invisible lingual braces.

Invisalign: Invisalign is a transparent aligner system that uses a series of custom-made, light, plastic aligners to guide the teeth into the correct position. Invisalign not only offers virtual invisibility, but it also gives patients flexibility (as the aligners are removable) and comfort, as the forces are gentle and there are no metal parts or bands that need adjusting. Invisalign is suitable for most patients who have minor or moderate issues and it is an ideal choice for teenagers and adults who are worried about how braces will affect their image.

Inman Aligner: the Inman Aligner is not invisible, but it is extremely discreet and all you can see is a fine metal bar. Treatment time is so short that you’ll barely even notice that you’re wearing braces before they come off! The average case is complete in just 16 weeks.

Lingual braces: lingual braces are the perfect solution for anyone with reservations about having orthodontic treatment due to the impact it may have on their looks and confidence. With this treatment, you really can get the smile you want without anyone else even being able to see your brace, as the brace sits behind the teeth. We offer STb Social 6 braces.

Invisible Braces, Showstopping Results!

Wednesday, December 16th, 2015

header_image4If you dream of a showstopping smile, Invisalign could be the perfect treatment for you! This invisible brace system produces stunning results with the magical bonus that nobody will even know that you’ve been having treatment. If you’ve been searching for a brace that affords you the opportunity to remain incognito during treatment and provides a beautiful smile at the end of the process, look no further!

About Invisalign

Invisalign is an aligner system that uses a sequence of custom-made plastic aligners to re-position and align the teeth. Invisalign aligners are made from clear plastic and slide onto your teeth. Once they are sat in place, it is virtually impossible for other people to detect them.

Invisalign works differently to traditional braces and uses multiple appliances, rather than a single orthodontic device. Each aligner is worn for 2 weeks and the sequence follows until treatment is complete.

As well as offering virtual invisibility, Invisalign also offers patients:

  • comfort: the aligners generate gentle forces and there are no metal parts
  • convenience: Invisalign aligners are removable, so they fit into your normal day to day life very easily. You won’t have to adapt the way you eat, the foods you buy or the way you clean your teeth
  • improved oral health: braces can be notoriously hard to clean, but with Invisalign, there is no added risk of decay as you remove your aligners to brush your teeth
  • confidence: many people worry about having braces because they think they look unattractive or affect the way other people view them. With Invisalign, you can go through the process without any worries at all about what you look like or how you come across to other people

If you think Invisalign sounds like the perfect match for you, why not call us today and book a consultation? Our friendly dentists will explain the ins and outs of orthodontic treatment, go through the pros and cons of Invisalign treatment and carry out some tests to check whether or not you are a good candidate for this system. If Invisalign is not a good match, we will be happy to explore other, more suitable, options.

Invisalign – a Discreet Brace System

Thursday, October 22nd, 2015

header_image4Invisalign braces are removable, clear aligners that are used as an invisible alternative to braces made of metal. They are suitable for all people of all ages, and work to straighten and correct teeth in the same way as metal braces.

Invisalign is the perfect solution for those who feel their smile needs adjusting or improving. The technique used for Invisalign is also used to successfully treat overly spaced or overcrowded teeth. Invisalign braces can also help with crossbites, overbites and underbites.

Benefits of Invisalign braces:

  • They can be removed, allowing you to floss, eat and drink normally, as well as take them out for a special occasion
  • You will have an improved smile even before the treatment is complete
  • The braces are comfortable and will not irritate your cheeks or gums due to their smooth edges
  • They are totally clear and practically invisible, so no-one needs to know that you are undergoing treatment

Treatment is made up of 4 stages:

  • The first appointment at City Dental Leeds will involve discussion of problems with your smile, in terms of both aesthetics and function. You will also be asked what results you are hoping for. Once it has been established that Invisalign is right for you, your treatment can be planned.
  • Photos and impressions of your teeth will be taken and sent to Invisalign so that they can create 3D images of your treatment. This will allow the dentist to see what your teeth will look like at all stages of the process, as well as allowing you to get a glimpse of what the final result will be.
  • Aligners to be worn at each stage in the treatment will be created and customised using state-of-the-art technology. Usually between 20 and 30 aligners for each arch will be required during treatment, although this will vary for each patient.
  • Aligners must be worn at all times, apart from while you are eating and drinking. This is necessary for treatment to be completed in the time frame determined at the start. You will need to attend check-ups so that your progress can be monitored and your aligners swapped. You will be able to observe your teeth gradually shifting into the correct position throughout the treatment, leaving you with a smile you can be proud of.

The Benefits of Removable Orthodontics

Wednesday, June 10th, 2015

2904387_blogRemovable orthodontics are increasingly popular and it’s no wonder! They offer a host of benefits for patients of all ages with all kinds of orthodontic prescriptions. Here are just some of the advantages you can enjoy if you opt for a removable brace:


With a removable brace, you can enjoy much greater flexibility than with a fixed brace, as you can take your brace out whenever you want to. It is important to stress that you should wear your brace according to the instructions from your dentist and you shouldn’t spend long periods of time without wearing your brace. However, many patients enjoy the freedom of being able to take their brace out quickly and simply.


Removable braces are very convenient because they have minimal impact on day to day actions that might be made more difficult by wearing a fixed brace, such as cleaning your teeth and eating. With a removable brace, you simply take the brace out, eat your dinner normally and then pop your brace back in.

Improved oral hygiene

With a removable brace, you can continue to clean your teeth in the same way as you did before you started treatment. It is much easier to clean your teeth without a brace in place than it is to try and steer a toothbrush around brackets and wires. This improves oral hygiene and reduces the risk of dental diseases, including tooth decay and gum disease. It’s also very easy to keep the brace clean as you can simply remove it and rinse it out.


Many removable braces offer incredibly natural looking and discreet aesthetics that will help you to feel more confident during the treatment process. Invisible aligners, such as Invisalign, straighten the teeth without any impact on the look of the smile. On the other hand, the Inman Aligner is not invisible, but it offers a much less noticeable aesthetic than fixed braces.


Removable braces tend to be more comfortable than fixed braces because they don’t have bands or wires that need tightening and many contain no metal parts.

Invisalign Gives Everyone Something to Smile About

Sunday, May 24th, 2015

2904346_blogYou may be surprised to hear that a trip to the dentist could give you something to smile about, especially if you suffer from nerves or dental anxiety. But with Invisalign, we promise that you won’t be able to stop smiling after every dental visit. This innovative invisible brace will transform your smile in secret, boosting your confidence and ensuring that you won’t be able to stop showing off those beautiful pearly whites!

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign offers something different to traditional orthodontic treatment and it works in a different way. Forces are still used to exert pressure on the teeth, but instead of using a fixed appliance made from brackets and wires, Invisalign uses multiple removable appliances, known as aligners. Each patient is given a set of custom-made aligners before they begin treatment and they are specifically designed to work in sequence. each aligner works for two weeks before being swapped for the next in the order. The aligners are shaped slightly differently and they are made according to a detailed and personalised treatment plan, which is drawn up using the latest imaging software. This plan charts the movement of the teeth and ensures that the aligners encourage movement while also providing enough space for the teeth to move.

Invisalign aligners are removable, but they should ideally be in place for 22 hours a day at least. You can take them out very easily to eat, drink and clean your teeth.

Who is a good match for Invisalign?

Invisalign is ideally suited to patients who are desperate to remain incognito during the treatment phase. The aligners are virtually invisible, as they are made entirely from light, clear plastic. They are capable of correcting minor and moderate issues and are generally recommended for patients who require a limited amount of movement.
