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.

How to Care for Your Braces

Monday, October 26th, 2015

braces front teethWe would all love to have them. They do the power of good for the look of our teeth. Of course, the topic of discussion is braces.

Modern day braces are remarkably good. They literally straighten out any problems our wonky teeth might have had for quite some time. But, braces of any kind can be distressing to many people. They might not be aesthetically pleasing to all and the person might be self-conscious about how their mouth looks. No matter what your opinion is on braces, one of the most important aspects is looking after them so that they can fully help your teeth. This can be done in many ways.

Just like your mouth, cleaning a brace regularly throughout the day is very important. As the brace is positioned in your mouth for long periods of the day, the probability of bacteria building up in your mouth is very high. In order to stop the harmful spread of bacteria from entering your mouth, it is advised that you brush your brace with some toothpaste and a toothbrush every day just as you do with your teeth.

Soaking your brace is also a very good idea if you have removable braces. By doing this, you will be able to clean your brace further, which conventional cleaning might not quite manage. Asking your dentist about the right solution for your brace will help as they will have a wealth of knowledge that the internet might otherwise miss.

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

So, if you’re one of the countless number of people who do have braces then following these steps would be a very good move. Being kind to your brace means that it will help the performance of your teeth as their potential for good will be maximised.

4207449_blogIt’s no understatement to say that a new smile could change your life and with lingual braces, you can achieve the dream of a perfectly straight smile in secret. Lingual braces offer an incredibly appealing option for people who are reluctant to have braces because they don’t want the hassle or stigma of wearing visible braces.

Lingual braces for a truly invisible treatment in Central Leeds

Monday, February 10th, 2014

529808_blogAsk people who are considering having braces about the problems that may potentially put them off having treatment and most will probably say that they don’t want to wear visible braces that alter their appearance and may affect their confidence. Thankfully, we have an amazing solution for those who are searching for an orthodontic treatment. Lingual braces are ideal for those looking to improve the aesthetic of their smile without changing their image during the process. These braces enable you to have treatment without anyone being able to see the brace, which means that you don’t need to worry about feeling self-conscious when you go out or meet new people. Lingual braces represent a really exciting alternative to traditional braces; rather than being attached to the front of the teeth in the normal way, these braces are fixed to the lingual side of the teeth (the back). Each bracket is fixed individually and then the wire is passed through. As the braces are on the back of the teeth, they are completely invisible when you smile. One of the most popular lingual brace treatments in the centre of Leeds is STb Social 6, a system, which is designed for those with minor orthodontic needs. These braces use advanced technology and design to move the teeth quickly, whilst also minimising friction for enhanced comfort. Typically, treatment time is around 6-16 weeks, so you can get the smile of your dreams quickly and discreetly; what are you waiting for?



Is it true- Invisible Braces? Yes please says Leeds!

Saturday, January 25th, 2014

4207449_blogAs anyone that has had a mouthful of metal shoved into their mouth will tell you, one of the greatest issues to overcome with getting your teeth straightened is one of vanity: though fixed braces do a great job, in the past they could look quite ugly and you could go through years of insults and ribbing. Many fixed braces use more subtle materials today for discretion, but if you want complete anonymity when getting your teeth aligned, take a look at some of the transparent aligners on offer: made from clear plastic, they are also removable for hygiene and they work faster than traditional braces, but also remember they will be very hard to spot in the mouth- which is probably their biggest asset of all. There is also another technique which is also invisible to the outside world- lingual braces. These are fixed braces but what sets them aside from others of their type is that they are fitted to the inside of the teeth, which means you can’t see them at all! Shop around; talk to your dentist in Leeds and also, go on-line and find out all you can about these orthodontic options. Having braces and aligners like these fitted will help to avoid the jibes and retain your confidence through which can be a traumatic time in your life.

The art of Lingual Orthodontics in Central Leeds

Thursday, December 20th, 2012

Over the many years of orthodontics, devices have been improved beyond recognition to improve the speed and efficiency of treatments. However one of the most important changes has come with the way they look in the mouth: it can often take a while to get over the ridicule and emotional scarring that is left by wearing ugly braces and hence, this has made manufacturers come up with more and more discreet products, and this can be found in lingual orthodontics. The fixed brace is completely hidden as it is attached to the inside of the teeth and it can also handle complex teeth problems. However, it does come with its own problems. Although it is popular amongst adults and gets great results, it is much more expensive than a traditional brace, not only because of manufacturing costs but because they take a lot more work to manage, which is why it can be hard to find an orthodontist who will carry out this treatment. However, it has come to centralLeedsand it is a very competent, invisible method of teeth alignment
