Comparing Lingual Braces to Clear Braces: Invisible Teeth Solutions

Friday, April 28th, 2017

shutterstock_571079539If you’re thinking about braces, and you’re keen to go for something discreet, you may be wondering whether clear braces or lingual braces are your best bet. Today, there are so many incredible treatment options out there, and lots of patients are spoiled for choice. If you’re weighing up your options, here is some useful information about our incredible invisible braces.

Clear Braces

Clear braces are a very popular option as many people don’t want to show off a bulky brace when they smile. If you want the convenience of a removable brace, as well as being able to undergo treatment in secret, systems like Invisalign are a good choice. Invisalign aligners are suitable for those with moderate orthodontic problems and they’re great for patients who don’t want to worry about anyone else knowing that they’ve got braces. Invisalign aligners are made from transparent plastic, and they’re really easy to incorporate into your daily life. You can take them out when you need to eat or clean your teeth, so you don’t have to adapt your daily routine in any way. If you would prefer a fixed brace, discreet options include Damon Braces and Six Month Smiles. These braces are a lot more discreet than traditional metal fixed braces, but they are visible, and if you dream of going incognito, lingual braces are probably your best bet.

Lingual Braces

Lingual braces are fixed braces, which also offer you the chance to have treatment without anyone else knowing. These braces are attached to the back of your teeth, so nobody will be able to see them when you smile. Lingual braces are finer and more delicate than traditional fixed braces and they use innovative technology to prevent friction and minimise pain. We offer STb Social 6 lingual braces, which are designed for minor orthodontic misalignment. Treatment is rapid, as it focuses on the social 6, the teeth at the front of the mouth. Typically, cases can be completed within 6-16 weeks.

Lingual Braces: Proof that Fixed Braces Aren’t Always Obvious

Wednesday, March 15th, 2017

shutterstock_216891052What kinds of images pop into your head when somebody mentions braces? Do you see cumbersome, ugly sets of metal train-tracks? If so, you’ll be glad to know that times have changed, and there are some much more discreet options on offer. If you’re eager to straighten your teeth and you don’t want to show off a brace when you smile, one option you could consider is lingual braces. These are fixed braces, but they’re completely different to the braces you’re probably familiar with. These braces sit behind your teeth, so you can smile with bags of confidence.

About Lingual Braces

Lingual braces are fixed braces, but they’re not the same as your average fixed braces. These braces are attached to the back of the teeth. This means that they cannot be seen when you smile. If you’re worried about what people will think about you having braces, or you’re conscious about your appearance, this could be the solution for you. With this option, you really can have treatment in secret.

At City Dental Leeds, we know that many of our patients dream of an invisible solution for crooked and crowded teeth, and we’re delighted to offer the incredible STb Social 6 system.

What’s so Fantastic about STb Social 6?

STb Social 6 is a lingual brace system, which targets issues that affect the social 6, the six teeth at the front of the mouth on both the top and bottom arches. The braces are custom-made, and each bracket is fixed individually. The braces use forces to gently guide the teeth into position, correcting problems like minor misalignment and small gaps between the teeth.

The beauty of STb Social 6 braces is that they give you the results you crave without you have to worry about what anyone else thinks or what you see when you look in the mirror. These braces are also incredibly quick, producing beautiful results in just 6-16 weeks.

Knowing the Invisible – Comparing invisible orthodontic treatments

Monday, January 30th, 2017

shutterstock_155143148 BOur patients often come to us looking for an orthodontic treatment, which will give them the smile they want without affecting their image or their confidence. The good news is that invisible braces are widely available now, and there’s a range of options for those who wish to remain incognito during treatment. Here are some of the options you may consider if you’re looking for invisible braces:


Invisalign is one of the world’s most popular orthodontic treatments. It uses clear aligners, which are virtually impossible to detect, to reposition the teeth. The aligners are removable, and you wear a series of custom-made appliances, with each one in place for a 2-week period. Invisalign is great not just because you can have treatment without anyone knowing, but also because it doesn’t affect your day to day life. You take the aligners out to eat and clean your teeth, so you can continue life as normal.

STb lingual braces

STb lingual braces offer an alternative to traditional fixed braces and invisible removable aligners. These braces are fixed to the teeth, but they sit behind your teeth, so they cannot be seen when you speak or smile. Fixed braces are guaranteed to work, and the process is very simple. Once the braces have been attached to the back of the teeth, you simply let them work their magic. You’ll need to keep your braces clean, but this treatment is rapid, and you’ll be having them removed before you know it. STb lingual braces are designed to target issues that affect the social 6, the front teeth, and this drastically reduces treatment time. Most cases are complete within 16 weeks.

The Amazing Benefits of Lingual Braces

Thursday, October 20th, 2016

shutterstock_155143142One of the main reasons some people are reluctant to have orthodontic treatment is the aesthetic of braces. Train-track fixed braces are highly effective, but they are also highly visible and this puts a lot of people off. Thankfully, there are some amazing discreet options now available for patients with orthodontic issues. One option that provides a truly invisible alternative to fixed braces is lingual orthodontics. We are delighted to offer clients the revolutionary STb Social 6 brace system.

What are lingual braces?

Lingual braces are fixed braces with a difference! Far from being unsightly and inconvenient, lingual braces are completely invisible because they are fixed to the back of the teeth instead of the front.

This type of brace is lighter and smaller than conventional fixed braces and they can be worn on the top and bottom teeth. They are a popular option for adults who want to have treatment without anyone being able to see that they’re wearing braces.

About STb Social 6 braces

STb Social 6 is a lingual brace system designed for patients with minor orthodontic issue. The braces focus on the social 6, which is the term used to describe the six teeth at the front of the mouth.

These braces are comfortable, completely invisible and very speedy. In most cases, treatment is complete within 4-6 months, making this one of the quickest treatments available. The wires are thin and light and they use self-ligating technology to accelerate the movement of the teeth and reduce friction and discomfort.

Stunning Smiles with STb Social 6 Braces

Friday, October 14th, 2016

18625010Have you ever dreamt of an orthodontic treatment that straightens your teeth in secret? Well now your dreams can come true, thanks to STb Social 6 braces. These innovative braces sit behind the back of your teeth, so they are totally invisible to everyone else!

The ins and outs of STb Social 6 braces

STb Social 6 braces are a lingual brace, which means that they are fixed onto the back side of the teeth. This system is specifically designed to fix problems with the social 6. The social 6 is the name used to describe the teeth positioned at the front of the mouth (the six front teeth on the top and bottom arches), which are most visible when you smile.

STb Social 6 braces are a really effective solution for patients who have minor or moderate orthodontic issues with the front teeth and they offer a speedy, invisible alternative to traditional fixed orthodontic systems. With these braces, you can enjoy the benefits of a beautiful, straight smile without having to deal with many of the issues commonly linked with wearing braces, such as feeling self-conscious when you smile.

Do lingual braces hurt?

It’s understandable to assume that these braces must cause discomfort because there is limited space between the tongue and the back of the teeth. However, lingual braces are a lot smaller than traditional braces and these braces use the latest technology to prevent friction and pain. As with any brace, it does take a little time to familiarise your mouth with wearing STb Social 6 braces, but most patients find them very comfortable after a couple of days.

The benefits of lingual braces

The most obvious benefit of lingual braces is that they can’t be seen when you smile or speak, so nobody need know that you are even wearing braces. STb Social 6 braces are also very quick, with an average treatment time of just 4-6 months and they are comfortable and light. The treatment process is very simple; once the braces have been fitted, you simply sit back and let them work their magic. We will organise regular check-ups until treatment is complete and your smile looks fantastic.

About lingual braces

With lingual braces, the front of your teeth will look exactly the same as before you started treatment and you can enjoy complete secrecy.

We are proud to offer STb Social 6 braces, which are innovative lingual braces that take a matter of weeks to produce an incredible outcome. This system is geared towards patients who only require minor correction and it targets the social 6, the 6 front top and bottom teeth.

Let Us Introduce You To STb Lingual Braces In The City Of Leeds

Monday, January 19th, 2015

2904346_blogMany of our patients recognise the difference braces can make, but are reluctant to commit to visible braces. Now, we are able to offer a treatment, which enables you to enjoy all the benefits of braces without any of the hassle or stress that accompanies wearing braces that can be seen. STb Social 6 braces are lingual braces, which means that they are fixed behind the teeth; this means that nobody will be able to see your braces throughout the treatment period.

Are lingual braces really invisible?

Lingual braces are the closest thing you’ll get to invisible treatment; they sit behind the teeth, so they cannot be seen when you smile at all. If you’re desperate for a discreet solution, this is an excellent option.

How do STb Social 6 lingual braces work?

STb Social 6 braces work in a similar way to traditional fixed braces in that they are made of brackets and wires, which generate forces to move the teeth; however, they are much smaller than traditional braces and they employ self-ligating technology to minimise friction.

STb Social 6 braces are specially formulated to target the social 6, the teeth at the front of the mouth. By focusing on these teeth only, treatment times are much shorter than most other systems.

How long will I have to wear braces?

This system is one of the fastest around, with an average treatment time of just 6-16 weeks.

Can I still eat and speak normally with STb Social 6 braces?

As with all braces, it can take a little getting used to wearing lingual braces. For the first couple of days, the braces may be a little uncomfortable and it may feel odd when you eat and talk. It’s a good idea to start with soft foods until you’re used to eating with your braces; we also advise you to practise talking and reading aloud to get you used to talking with your braces.

The magic of Lingual Orthodontics in Central Leeds

Sunday, November 17th, 2013

4756357_blogWhether or not you like the idea of having braces fitted to your teeth in central Leeds, you have to remember that it is for your own good, and helps to protect your teeth for the future. One of the biggest gripes that people have though is just how complex and ugly they look when they are fitted and for some, it can seriously affect their confidence having to go around with a mouthful of metal for years. However, if you were to look deeper into what is on offer, you can remove all of these worries by having lingual braces fitted, and lingual orthodontics has really taken off over the years. Yes, they are fixed braces and yes they are a nightmare to clean at first and throughout your treatment, but there is a huge difference between these and traditional braces- they are completely invisible, why you may ask yourself? Well lingual braces are fitted to the inside of the teeth as opposed to wrapping themselves around the front, so they can’t be seen at all. Now this doesn’t come without its problems; cleaning has already been mentioned, but they can take a lot of getting used to as well. Though, you should take heart from the fact that they can do very complex work for you and the discretion they give you should be enough for you to look into them before making your choice.
