Did you know there is a clear alternative to train track braces?

Thursday, January 11th, 2018

If you thought you had to wear metal train-tracks to get a gorgeous smile, you’d be wrong! At Liverpool Dental Spa, we offer a range of aesthetically-pleasing, discreet alternatives, including clear fixed braces and invisible removable aligners. If you’re keen to undergo orthodontic treatment in secret, why not give us a call and see how we could help you?

Our clear braces

We offer an impressive collection of clear braces, including:

  • Invisalign, Clearstep and Perfect Clear: these systems all utilise clear aligners made from high-grade plastic to reposition the teeth. The aligners look similar to mouth guards and they move the teeth without anyone even being able to spot them. Aligners are generally recommended for minor and moderate issues, as they provide less support than fixed braces. One of the benefits people love most about aligners is the flexibility they give you, as you can take them out when you want to eat or clean your teeth.
  • Damon Braces: Damon Braces are an excellent choice for patients who would benefit from fixed braces. They are suitable for even the most complex cases and they boast transparent and tooth-coloured materials, which make them much more discreet than traditional metal fixed braces. Damon Braces also produce results around 4-6 months faster than conventional fixed orthodontics.
  • CFast braces: CFat braces are clear, sleek, delicate fixed braces, which are tricky to detect when you smile. They provide the reliability of fixed braces as well as discreet aesthetics.
  • MTM No Trace Brace: if you’re keen to undergo secret treatment, MTM No Trace Braces could be the ideal option for you. These braces are attached to the back of the teeth, which means that they are invisible when you smile.

Comparing Removable Brace Solutions in the Heart of Liverpool

Wednesday, July 5th, 2017

If you’re searching for a convenient orthodontic treatment in the heart of Liverpool, you’ve come to the right place. Often, when patients come to us, they’re worried about how wearing braces will impact their lives. With removable braces, there’s minimal disruption, and you can carry on eating, drinking and cleaning your teeth as normal. If you like the sound of removable braces, here are some of our most popular options:

Invisalign: Invisalign is one of the world’s leading orthodontic treatments. A number of patients choose Invisalign because it allows them to secretly undergo treatment. Invisalign aligners are made from clear plastic, and they are virtually invisible when you smile. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign uses a series of aligners, rather than a single brace. Each aligner is shaped differently to encourage tooth movement, and the fact that the braces are removable gives you freedom and flexibility. It also makes life much easier when it comes to keeping your teeth clean and you don’t have to worry about eating in public and getting food trapped in your brace.

Inman Aligner: the Inman Aligner is a removable brace, which is ideally suited to patients who have minor issues that affect the teeth at the front of the mouth. This brace works rapidly, with an average treatment time of around 16 weeks. The aligner isn’t completely invisible, but it is much more discreet than traditional fixed braces.

Clearstep: Clearstep is similar to Invisalign, but it is generally recommended for patients who need only a small amount of movement. Clearstep braces are made from transparent plastic and they offer a very discreet solution. Clearstep braces are designed to be removed when you eat and brush your teeth, so you should find that they fit into your normal daily routine very easily.

Did you know we can Straighten Teeth with No One Noticing?

Monday, June 26th, 2017

Have you ever thought about having orthodontic treatment, but been put off by the prospect of other people being able to see your braces? Perhaps you’re worried about what your friends would say or how wearing braces could affect your chances when it comes to dating or getting a job. If you’re anxious about braces, you’re not alone. The good news is that times have changed, and now, you don’t have to worry. We have treatments that will straighten your teeth without anybody else noticing. Allow us to introduce you to our invisible treatments:

Invisalign, ClearStep and Perfect Clear

These treatments are clear aligner treatments, which straighten the teeth using a series of removable, transparent aligners. These braces use gentle forces to move the teeth, and when the braces are in place, they are virtually undetectable. These treatments are suited to those with minor or moderate orthodontic issues.

MTM No Trace Brace

Have you ever wished you could have straight teeth without anybody being able to see that you’re wearing a brace? With MTM No Trace Brace, you can do just this. This system uses lingual braces, which are attached to the back of the teeth, rather than the front, to straighten the teeth in secret. These braces are geared towards patients who have minor issues, and they work quickly, with an average treatment time of just 12-24 weeks.


CFast braces are an aesthetically pleasing alternative to traditional fixed braces. These sleek fixed braces are applied to the front of the teeth, so they’re not invisible like lingual braces. However, they are made from clear components and they are much lighter than traditional braces, so they are much harder to spot. CFast braces are suitable for most orthodontic patients and they produce results in around 4-6 months.

How Invisalign Straightens Teeth Subtly

Wednesday, April 5th, 2017

Many people suffer from tooth misalignment, but they’re reluctant to seek help because they don’t want to wear unsightly braces. Today, you can achieve a gorgeous, straight smile without worrying about your image thanks to subtle systems like Invisalign. If you’ve always wanted straight teeth, but you’ve been putting off seeing your dentist because you don’t like the sound of braces, now is the time to reconsider. With Invisalign, we can straighten your teeth and give you a beautiful new smile without anyone even knowing that you’ve had treatment.

What is Invisalign and how does it work?

Invisalign is a clear brace system, which uses a series of bespoke removable braces called aligners to move the teeth. Treatment is planned in advance using innovative software, which predicts the movement of the teeth, and the aligners are drawn up according to your individual treatment plan. You wear each aligner for 2 weeks, and then swap it for the next one in the sequence.

Invisalign aligners are removable, and they are designed to be taken out when you eat, drink and clean your teeth. Although it’s very easy to take your aligners out, we recommend wearing the braces for around 22 hours per day to achieve the best results.

What’s so good about Invisalign?

Many people are anxious about having braces because they assume that they’ll be painful and they worry about what other people will think. With Invisalign, you don’t have to have any concerns because the braces are virtually invisible, and they’re also very comfortable. You can take them out to eat and brush your teeth so you don’t need to make any changes to your diet or your oral hygiene regime, and there are no painful metal parts or appointments required to tighten the braces.

If you’re keen to learn more, give us a call now or get in touch online to book a consultation.

Which Clear Braces Are Right For You?

Friday, February 10th, 2017

More and more people are choosing to have braces, and one of the main reasons is the introduction of invisible braces. In the past, patients particularly adults, were reluctant to have orthodontic treatment because they didn’t want the hassle or stress of wearing visible braces. Braces have never been something that boosts your street cred, but now, everything is different. With clear braces, you can achieve the smile you’ve always wanted without having to worry about your appearance or what other people think. If you’re considering invisible braces, here are some of the most popular clear brace treatments.


Invisalign is one of the world’s leading orthodontic systems. It’s a great option for patients who want to undergo treatment without compromising their image or self-esteem in the process. Invisalign aligners are made from transparent plastic, and this means that they’re virtually undetectable when you smile. They’re also removable, so you can eat without any anxiety about getting food trapped in your teeth and clean your teeth without any hassle at all. Invisalign is usually recommended for patients with minor or moderate orthodontic concerns.


Clearstep braces work in a very similar way to Invisalign. They are clear, removable braces, which slide over the teeth in a similar way to a mouth guard. Clearstep may be a cheaper option, and it can be a viable choice for most patients over the age of 14.

Perfect Clear

Perfect Clear uses a series of bespoke K positioners to gently guide the teeth into position. These positioners are similar to the aligners used by Invisalign and Clearstep. Treatment time will depend on the nature of your orthodontic needs and the amount of movement required.


CFast braces offer an alternative to the removable braces mentioned above. These clear braces are fixed braces. You may assume that fixed braces are highly visible, but with CFast, you can enjoy the reliability of fixed braces, as well as discretion. CFast braces are very delicate, and they are made from clear and tooth-coloured parts, which makes them much less noticeable than traditional metal braces. CFast treatment is ideal for those who have problems that affect the social 6, the front teeth. The average treatment time is around 6 months.

We understand that for many patients, aesthetics are everything, and we are delighted to have an impressive array of clear brace systems on offer. If you’d like to learn more, or you’re wondering which brace would be best for you, why not ring us today and book a consultation?

Invisalign is Perfect for Patients on the Go

Wednesday, July 22nd, 2015

We understand that many of our clients have hectic work and social schedules and this is why we’re always on the lookout for innovations, which offer convenience and flexibility. Invisalign is an incredible orthodontic system, which fits in with your daily routine and makes the process of achieving a stunning straight smile as easy and stress-free as possible.

Everything you need to know about Invisalign

Invisalign is a modern orthodontic system, which is a great option for patients who are always on the go. This system uses a set of specially designed removable appliances, called aligners, to move the teeth, creating a perfectly aligned smile with minimal impact on your day to day life.

Invisalign aligners are custom-designed for each individual patient and they are very easy to use; they glide into position over the teeth and they can be taken out very quickly and easily when you eat and brush your teeth. Invisalign aligners look like very delicate gum shields and they are made from clear plastic, making them virtually invisible to others.

The treatment process

The treatment process for Invisalign is slightly different to other treatments because it involves using multiple aligners, rather than a single brace. Each Invisalign patient receives a set of bespoke aligners, which are manufactured based on a detailed personalised treatment plan. Each aligner is worn for 2 weeks and the aligners work in sequence. Patients are advised to take the aligner out to eat and clean the teeth; although they are removable, which gives you greater flexibility, it is important to wear the aligners for around 22 hours per day to ensure the best results.

Is Invisalign for me?

If you’re looking for a simple, effective, discreet and comfortable solution for mild or moderate orthodontic issues, Invisalign could be the perfect match. Call us today to arrange a consultation and our expert dentists will talk you through the treatment and check that this is a suitable option for you.

Start Your Invisalign Journey in Liverpool This September

Thursday, September 18th, 2014

Invisalign is a forward-thinking, fast-acting, discreet alternative to traditional fixed braces and we are delighted to offer this incredible system in the heart of Liverpool. Invisalign has already produced thousands of stunning, straight smiles: could yours be next?

What is Invisalign and how does it work?

Invisalign is a modern orthodontic system that utilises a series of removable appliances, known as aligners, to guide the teeth into the correct position and create a beautiful smile. The aligners are made fro high grade, clear plastic and they slide over the teeth; they are virtually invisible, so they can barely be seen when you smile or you chat to others.

Invisalign is different to other treatments because it uses several appliances, rather than a single brace or aligner. Each aligner is different in terms of shape to allow room for tooth movement and patients are required to stick to a set order. Every aligner is worn for 2 weeks and the sequence continues until the last aligner is removed and you’re free to showcase your stunning pearly whites!

Who is Invisalign aimed at?

Invisalign is suitable for adults and teenagers and is particularly beneficial for those who have concerns about their image. It’s understandable to want to look your best and braces have never been viewed as the coolest addition to an outfit; with Invisalign, you don’t need to worry about keeping up with the trends or portraying a professional image because nobody will be able to see that you’re even wearing a brace.

This system is versatile and it can be of benefit to patients with a wide range of orthodontic problems, from crowding to gaps between the teeth. In order to determine if this treatment is a good match for a patient, we offer consultations to examine the mouth, evaluate the bite and explain what the treatment is and how it works. If Invisalign is not the best option, we have many other treatments, which may be more suitable.

Improve Your Confidence with Perfect Clear Braces in the Heart of Liverpool

Saturday, July 26th, 2014

One of the main reasons people worry about having braces is their image. Braces can be unsightly and unattractive and this can make you feel less confident, especially in social settings. Thankfully, we have options available for patients who have these concerns and our amazing clear braces will help you to feel confident during the treatment process.

Advantages of clear braces

Clear braces give you the opportunity to feel more confident during the treatment process when you have braces. With clear braces, you can smile without worrying about what you look like or how others perceive you because you are wearing braces. Clear braces are also a great option for adults who have professional roles and rely on face to face contact as part of their job description and would like to maintain a certain image, as they produce incredible results without anyone being able to see the brace.

Our clear brace treatments

We offer a range of clear brace options to suit patients with all kinds of orthodontic issues and to cater for patient’s varying preferences. Our treatments include Invisalign, Clearstep and Perfect Clear.

These systems are aligner treatments, which use removable appliances to gently guide the teeth into position and smooth out problems with misalignment. Invisalign is one of the world’s leading orthodontic treatments and it has become extremely popular, as more and more people look for a discreet alternative to fixed braces. Clearstep is similar and both treatments use a series of bespoke aligners, which are worn for 2 weeks at a time in a set order until treatment is complete. Perfect Clear uses specially designed K positioners to reposition the teeth.

We Offer Discreet Treatment With Invisalign Braces In The Heart Of Liverpool

Tuesday, May 13th, 2014

Invisalign offers patients in Liverpool the opportunity to get a beautiful smile without putting up with visible, unsightly braces. Rather than sporting a fixed metal brace, Invisalign patients wear a series of clear aligners, which are virtually invisible to other people. This is a modern, discreet alternative to fixed braces, which is a great option for those who are wary of having treatment due to the impact braces could have on their looks.

How does Invisalign work?

Invisalign utilises a series of specially designed removable orthodontic appliances, known as aligners. Each aligner is custom-made in line with the patient’s individual treatment plan and treatment involves wearing each appliance for 2 weeks. The aligners are removable and they should be taken out when you are eating and when you clean your teeth.
Invisalign aligners generate forces, which move the teeth. The forces are gentle and there are no metal parts or elastic bands.

How could Invisalign benefit me?

The reason most people go for Invisalign is the fact that the aligners are virtually invisible and this means you can go through treatment without worrying about your looks or dealing with the stigma attached to wearing braces. Invisalign aligners are also removable, which gives you more control of your treatment and affords you more freedom; you can also brush your teeth in the normal way and there is a lower risk of oral disease, as food is not able to get stuck in the aligner.
If you would like to see if you are a suitable candidate for Invisalign treatment and find out more about the benefits of clear braces, call us today to book your consultation!
