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.


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.

You’ll be Amazed by the Stunning Results from STb Social 6 Braces

Monday, September 12th, 2016

386703_blogFor those of you who need braces but don’t want a traditional, visible train track brace, then the STb Social 6 brace may be the best treatment for you. STb braces are able to straighten your teeth discreetly, as they are fitted to the back of your teeth making them practically invisible to those around you.

The STb Social 6 brace is made of small brackets and arch wires that are custom made for you, to fit the individual shape of your teeth. They work in almost the same way as the traditional brace, but the advantage with STb Social 6 braces is that no one will see that you are having treatment.

How are STb Social 6 braces fitted?

There are four stages to having your STb Social 6 brace fitted, which include the initial consultation to discuss whether the brace is right for you, after which a treatment plan will be made. Silicone impressions of your teeth will be taken during the second stage and the third stage will see your STb brace designed specifically for you, before being crafted using state of the art technology in stage four.

Once they are ready, the braces will be fitted by the dentist to the back of your teeth. The brace will then gently move your teeth into the desired position.

What are the advantages of STb Social 6 braces?

There are a number of advantages that come with STb Social 6 braces such as:

  • They are practically invisible to others around you.
  • The brace is much faster than traditional fixed brace systems.
  • Effective results are achieved a great deal faster than invisible aligners.
  • As they are a fixed brace a greater level of tooth movement can be achieved in comparison to removable aligners.

Say Hello to a Unique Fixed Brace System

Tuesday, April 26th, 2016

3014970_blogHave you ever thought about having orthodontic treatment and then pushed the thought to the back of your mind because you don’t want to be lumbered with highly visible fixed braces? If you have, we may have the perfect solution: STb Social 6.

What is STb Social 6?

STb Social 6 is a lingual braces system applied to the back of the teeth. The major benefit of STb Social 6 braces is that they are hard to see when you smile, so you can keep your treatment under wraps.

STb Social 6 braces are designed for patients with minor problems that affect their front teeth. They are a great option for patients who have mild crowding, a small gap between their front teeth or a crooked front tooth.

What are the benefits of STb Social 6 braces?

STb Social 6 braces are a truly invisible treatment so you do not need to have any concerns about what people think about your brace, what you see when you look in the mirror or how you go about your daily life. The braces are light and comfortable and they use the latest innovations to prevent friction. They also work very quickly, with most cases complete within 4-5 months. In very minor cases where slight adjustment is required, treatment may be finished within 6-8 weeks.

STb Social 6 braces are an ideal treatment for patients who want to make minor adjustments to their smile without the hassle of wearing visible braces or using removable devices, which need to be taken out and cleaned.

The treatment

After a consultation, the braces will be designed and fitted; lingual braces are different to traditional braces because the brackets must be fitted individually; this is because the shape of the back of each tooth varies. Once all the brackets have been fixed into position, the wire is passed through and treatment can begin!

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.
