Which Discreet Teeth Straightening Solution is Right For You?

Wednesday, July 19th, 2017

shutterstock_652695277Most of us are concerned about our image. At City Dental Leeds, we understand that many of our patients are apprehensive about having braces because of the way they look. The good news is that braces don’t have to look unsightly anymore. If you thought you’d be lumbered with bulky metal train-tracks, think again! We have a host of discreet solutions ready and waiting to give you a beautiful smile with minimal hassle.

Which treatment is right for you?

We are delighted to have a wide range of options available for our patients. While it’s good to have a choice, we understand that some patients may feel confused when it comes to choosing the right treatment. This is where our expert dentists come in handy. Our dentists have many years of experience, and they can talk you through the options and make recommendations based on your orthodontic prescription, the type of treatment that would benefit you most, and your preferences.

Our treatments

We have something for everyone when it comes to discreet orthodontic options. Our treatments include:

  • Invisalign: Invisalign is a clear aligner system, which utilises a series of bespoke, removable braces to align the teeth. These braces are made from transparent plastic, and they are virtually undetectable when they are in position. Invisalign is generally recommended for patients with minor or moderate orthodontic issues.
  • 6 Month Smiles: fixed braces provide more stability than removable braces. Six Month Smiles is a discreet fixed brace system, which enables you to enjoy the benefits of fixed braces without having to wear appliances that are highly visible. These braces, which target imperfections that affect the front teeth, are made from clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires. They produce results in just 6 months.
  • STb Social 6: STB Social 6 is a lingual brace system, which offers you the opportunity to undergo treatment in secret. These braces are fixed to the back of the teeth, so they cannot be seen when you smile. This is a treatment that is geared towards patients with minor issues that affect the social 6 (the front six teeth on the top and bottom arches). The average treatment time is just 6-18 weeks.

Four Ways to Invisibly Straighten Your Teeth in Leeds

Tuesday, June 6th, 2017

shutterstock_644474866Have you always been conscious about your smile? Are you reluctant to have treatment because you don’t want to be lumbered with unsightly, cumbersome braces? If you’ve answered yes to these questions, we have good news! With modern orthodontic treatments, we can provide you with a beautiful, straight smile without anyone even being able to spot a brace. Allow us to introduce you to our incredible collection of invisible braces:

Invisalign: Invisalign is a clear aligner system, which uses a sequence of specially designed removable clear braces to straighten the teeth. Invisalign braces slide over the teeth in a similar way to a gum shield you wear for sport. As they are made entirely from transparent plastic, they are virtually undetectable when they’re in place. Invisalign is a great option for those with minor or moderate issues.

STb Social 6 braces: if you’re looking for the ultimate in invisible braces, STb Social 6 braces may be the choice for you. These braces are lingual braces, and this means that they are positioned behind the teeth, making them completely invisible when you smile. Lingual braces are fixed braces, but they are much finer and smaller than traditional fixed braces. STb Social 6 braces are designed to correct minor orthodontic problems that affect the front teeth, also known as the social 6. Treatment takes just 6-24 weeks.

Inman Aligner: the Inman Aligner is not strictly an invisible treatment, but it is considerably more discreet than conventional braces. The aligner is removable, and the only part that can be detected is a fine metal bar, which sits on the front of the teeth. The best thing about this treatment is the speed. It takes just 16 weeks to produce amazing results.

Six Month Smiles: Six Month Smiles is a fast-acting fixed brace treatment, which uses streamlined braces made from clear wires and tooth-coloured brackets to correct issues that affect the front teeth in just 6 months.

If you’re keen to undergo orthodontic treatment in secret or you’ve been hoping to find a discreet alternative to traditional braces, give us a call now and find out more about how we could help you get that perfect, straight smile.

About Six Month Smiles

Six Month Smiles is a treatment system developed to provide people with a quick alternative to old-fashioned fixed braces. Six Month Smiles uses fixed braces made from tooth-coloured wires and clear brackets to move the teeth at the front of the mouth. The treatment is able to work so much quicker than other fixed brace systems because it focuses only on the front teeth visible when you smile.

What are the advantages?

The system has many advantages. Firstly, treatment time is much shorter than other treatment systems, so you don’t have to endure months on end of wearing a brace or wait for ages reveal your new straight smile. Six Month Smiles braces are very subtle, made up of tooth-coloured wires and clear brackets and they use the latest technology to move the teeth painlessly. The brackets are small and light and they are easy to keep clean.

Am I a suitable candidate?

The treatment is suitable for many patients. It can benefit people who have gaps between their front teeth, certain problems relating to their bite, minor crowding and crooked front teeth, but it concentrates on the front teeth and if you have complex problems or issues affecting the teeth at the back of the mouth, this treatment may not be the best option. If you are not a suitable candidate, we will happily discuss other treatments with you and recommend others that would suit you better at City Dental in Leeds.

Six Month Smiles is an ideal option for people who have minor or moderate orthodontic problems and those who want to see results quickly. If you are preparing to look your best for a special occasion, such as a graduation ceremony or a wedding, this could be the perfect solution.

6 Month Smiles Braces Can Treat A Whole Host Of Orthodontic Problems

Wednesday, December 24th, 2014

4865112_blogAt City Dental we pride ourselves in providing solutions for patients with a whole host of orthodontic problems and we offer a wide range of innovative treatments. One of our most impressive systems is 6 Month Smiles.

What is 6 Month Smiles?

6 Month Smiles is a modern take on traditional fixed braces, which offers a rapid fix for minor and moderate orthodontic problems with the front teeth. 6 Month Smiles has been developed using the best aspects of traditional fixed brace treatment and adding modern features and design concepts to reduce pain, cut treatment time and enhance aesthetics both during and after treatment. With this treatment, you can expect a beautiful smile in just 6 months.

How does treatment work?

6 Month Smiles use specially designed brackets and wires to generate gentle forces, which propel the teeth into the correct position. The wires have been developed using the latest technology and are able to move the teeth incredibly quickly with minimal pain. Treatment times are much shorter than other systems because the braces focus on the teeth that are on show when you smile; this not only means that you can enjoy the results quicker, but also ensures that your smile looks incredible once the braces have been removed.

Am I a suitable candidate?

6 Month Smiles is ideally suited to patients who require minor or moderate treatment for crooked teeth and spacing; it is also a really excellent choice for people who have a special date in mind and those who only have a limited amount of time available. Most patients who do not require major changes to their bite are suitable candidates for 6 Month Smiles treatment.

Your City Dental dentist will be able to assess whether you are a good candidate for treatment at your consultation; if this is not the best choice, your dentist will explore other possibilities with you.

How to get a Smile in just 6 Months in Leeds

Friday, February 1st, 2013

We all like the idea of having beautiful white teeth that are perfectly straight, like most of the people walking around Leeds, but as we get older and the more we leave the opportunity of getting our teeth straightened, the more the idea of having some lengthy orthodontic treatment becomes abhorrent. But you simply can’t spend your life moaning about how your teeth could have been, when if you opted for the 6 months smile you could have your teeth fixed in around that time. This brace uses all the good qualities to be found in traditional fixed braces and then customises them into a fine modern orthodontic treatment. Though this brace covers all sorts of teething problems, it tends to focus more on the teeth that stand out whenever you smile. All the offending teeth have a ceramic pad attached to them that are linked with a wire that is then anchored around the back teeth. These pads and the wire are discreetly coloured so that they are difficult to see when being worn. As the treatment progresses, the wire will be constantly tightened by your dentist so that the teeth are kept under tension and on the move and in as little as 6 months, your teeth will be in place and straightened.

The benefits of the 6 Months Smile in the City of Leeds

Sunday, December 30th, 2012

If you have to wear braces, you’d like to think that there must be something else out there other than the traditional fixed braces that make you look like you’ve had the scaffold team in, something more demure; and also something that isn’t going to take years to complete. Well then you should take a look at the 6 Months Smile which is available now in the city of Leeds. It has all the good qualities of traditional braces but with a totally modern make-over. The plates that fit onto the teeth are made from clear ceramics for discretion and then joined together with an equally discreet wire that is anchored at the rear of the mouth. As the treatment progresses, the wire is tightened regularly by your dentist to keep the teeth on the move and they move fast too- in about 6 months. Though this brace addresses all manner of problems such as overcrowding and biting issues, it is primarily designed to deal with teeth that look out place when you smile, which is what makes this brace so attractive. Like all fixed braces, you’ll need to be extra vigilant when it comes to oral hygiene, but you will get the hang of it and besides, you’ll only be wearing for half a year!

No Bull, Smiling in 6 Months in Leeds

Thursday, January 19th, 2012

How do you fancy getting your teeth straightened quickly with the minimum of fuss and pretty damn quickly to boot? The obvious answer is yes. Well floating around the dental surgeries ofLeedsright now is a ‘cracker’ of a device called the 6 Months Smile. Born out of all the good qualities of traditional braces, this has taken those and taken it to the next level of teeth straightening. Its best quality is that it is directed at specific teeth that are causing the problems and then pulls them into place very quickly, because you are down the dentists regularly to have it adjusted. But it also sits rather more attractively in the mouth than traditional braces- tooth colored ceramic plates are placed on the teeth and then all joined together with a discreet wire to the anchors at the back of the teeth. This means it is barely visible, which is just what you want, especially if you are a little older and are in the public eye a lot. And don’t forget, we are talking 6 months here to sort out all those fidgeting worries that have nagged way at you for years. The cost of the treatment averages out around £1900 but not everyone will suit this type of treatment so it is important you find out more from your dentist about this device.
