Lingual braces look and work much the same way as traditional metal braces. However, they are fitted behind your teeth, so they can't be seen. If you are looking for a discreet way to achieve your perfect smile then Incognito lingual braces may be for you.
The brace is custom made for each patient to maximise comfort and ensure precise results, this is achieved by using the latest computer technology. As the braces are fitted to the back of the teeth, there is no risk of decalcification or white spots on the front of the teeth at the end of treatment.
Unlike clear aligners such as Invisalign, you'll never have to worry about remembering to insert or remove them while eating and drinking as they are fitted for the duration of your treatment.
Incognito braces are suitable for patients with mild to complex cases, including common problems such as:
As each case is different, treatment times vary from patient-to-patient. Moderate cases are usually completed within 15 months, while more complex cases can take up to 24 months.
Once lingual braces have been fitted, it's not uncommon for patients to experience some discomfort for the first 10 days while your mouth gets used to them. After this period, lingual braces are very easy to live with and won't impact on your lifestyle.
