How to Straighten Your Smile in Total Secret

Thursday, November 10th, 2016

18625010Years ago, it may have seemed impossible to straighten your teeth in secret. Fast forward to 2016, and this is a very real possibility. If you dream of having straight teeth, but you don’t want the hassle of other people seeing your braces, we bring you good news. With our incredible invisible brace options, you’ll have a beautiful smile without anyone even guessing that you’ve had braces.

Our treatments

We have two main options for those who are looking for a secret new smile. The first is invisible brace systems like Invisalign. The second is lingual brace treatments like STb lingual braces.

Invisalign is one of the world’s most popular clear brace treatments. It works by using a series of customised clear plastic aligners to gently move the teeth and realign the top and bottom arches. Invisalign aligners are comfortable, light, and most importantly, virtually invisible. You take them out to eat and clean your teeth, so they have almost no impact on your day to day life. You can socialise and work without anyone being able to see that you’re wearing braces. Invisalign is generally recommended for patients who have minor or moderate orthodontic needs. Treatment time is around 12-18 months.

Lingual braces are the ultimate choice for patients in search of secret treatment. These high-tech braces sit behind your teeth, so nobody can see them. Each bracket is custom-made to fit the contours of your individual teeth. STb lingual braces are ideal for those with minor problems such as mild crowding and crooked front teeth and are designed to tackle issues that involve the social 6, the front six teeth on the top and bottom arches.

Which treatment is best for me?

There’s no universal answer to this question. Every patient is different and one option may suit your orthodontic needs and your personal preferences more than the other. If you’re interested in treatment, why not call and book a consultation. We can have a look at your teeth, go through the ins and outs of the both treatments and help you decide which option would be most beneficial.

3170978_blogIf you have been craving the perfect smile all your life and thought the only way to achieve this was through the hard slog of the traditional brace system, you might be feeling that there is no way you will ever have straighter teeth.

The STb Social 6 lingual brace is a revolutionary piece of dentistry that can straighten your teeth and give you that crowd-stopping smile that you have always wanted. The best bit is that STb Social 6 lingual braces can do this for you without the visibility of wires and brackets that are a fixed part of the traditional brace system. That’s right, these braces are practically invisible to everyone else and only you will know that you have one.

Rather than sitting on the front of your teeth for the whole world to see, the STb Social 6 lingual brace is placed at the back of the teeth, leaving them completely unnoticeable throughout the course of your treatment. Also, the brace system does its job in around six to sixteen weeks, during which your problem will be fully addressed and you will be left feeling much happier with your smile.

Due to the design of the STb Social 6 lingual brace they reduce the friction on your teeth and this in turn means that you won’t have to visit your dentist as often as you would with a traditional brace.

This is only one advantage of the lingual brace system! Others include: they are much more comfortable for the patient during the treatment, they treat a wide variety of dental issues from the very minor to the much more major issues and there’s the obvious added bonus of them doing their job in a much quicker time.

So if you have always dreamed of that perfect smile, get in touch with your dentist to discuss whether the STb Social 6 lingual brace is right for you, and you could be smiling all day from now on.

With lingual braces, patients can undergo treatment in complete secret, so you can get the straight smile of your dreams without feeling any anxiety about the way you look during the treatment stage.

What are lingual braces?

Lingual braces offer patients an alternative to traditional fixed braces, and they make the impossible dream of undergoing treatment in secret possible. These braces look similar to traditional braces, but they are attached to the back of the teeth, so they are completely invisible when you smile. Lingual braces are smaller and lighter than conventional braces, and they use friction-free force to prevent discomfort.

We have lingual brace systems to cater for patients with diverse orthodontic needs, from minor issues to complex problems that require significant correction.

STb Social 6 braces

STb Social 6 braces are lingual braces specifically designed to treat issues with the front teeth (also known as the social 6). These light braces focus solely on the front teeth, cutting treatment time and ensuring amazing aesthetics. The average treatment time for this system is just 16 weeks.

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
