Thinking about straightening your teeth?
We offer various teeth straightening options here at Indigo Dental in Leeds. You may ask 'how can I straighten my teeth'? It's best to book a consultation so we can examine your specific case, as we're all different, however here's some useful information about some of the treatments we offer (Six Month Smile, Invisalign and Clear Correct).
ClearCorrect is an innovative, orthodontic solution to straighten your teeth in a more discreet and effective way when compared to traditional techniques. These clear, customised, removable teeth aligners can give you a beautiful smile without the discomfort associated with wires and brackets from metal braces.
Our experienced cosmetic dentist offers this system of virtually invisible aligners to help improve the look and functionality of your teeth with long-lasting results.
How it works
The amount of time the retainers will be needed for can vary – like more traditional braces, it depends on the severity of the case and how much the teeth need to move to reach their desired outcome. It can vary from a few months to a couple of years – when it is a longer amount of time it isn’t such a daunting prospect knowing that you can still take them out for meals! Of course, they must be worn for at least 22 hours of the day to be able to work to their full potential. This will be monitored by the dentist; the patient will receive a new set of aligners every so often as the teeth move. The aligners work by putting pressure on the teeth that need to be moved so of course, the more the aligners are worn, the more effect it will have on the teeth.
The aligners themselves are made using cutting edge technology, based on scans and an assessment of the patient’s teeth and jaw. This is monitored closely as the teeth begin to move, to ensure that the patient receives exactly what is needed every step of the way. This is the perfect solution for those who do not want braces that look obvious, and of course to be able to eat normally whilst receiving the treatment is a huge benefit!
Quick Straight Teeth
QST uses fixed or removable clear braces to align your front teeth
Q Fixed Braces
QST use 3M brackets for and have a reliable and proven track-record worldwide for their performance, beautiful aesthetics, and they are nearly invisible once placed in the mouth. Coloured wires make QST braces the most aesthetic compared with any similar systems. QST is only used on the front 6 or 8 teeth, to correct mild misalignment and give you a beautiful smile.
Standard orthodontic mechanics are still involved in the use of QST but because it’s just the front teeth, the force required is minimal. The wires exert mild pressure to move the teeth, and this is done without the need for severe tightening which causes the discomfort noted in conventional orthodontic treatments.
Q Removable Braces
QuickStraightTeeth™ is a clear teeth straightening system that has been developed to be a quick, discreet and very cost effective alternative for patients not wanting traditional braces. Unlike other invisible braces available in the UK, QuickStraightTeeth™ does not rely on one standard aligner. They have developed a range of unique Q Appliances, consisting of ﬁve highly developed teeth straightening appliances.
