Incognito braces are an advanced generation of brace that is hidden discreetly on the back of the teeth, not on the front like conventional ‘train tracks’. This allows people to go about their daily routine without feeling self-conscious - because their braces are virtually invisible.
Incognito braces are suitable for all age groups – children, adolescents and adults who want to correct their teeth.
The braces are custom-made for each patient - to maximise comfort and ensure precise results. This is achieved by using the latest computer technology when creating the brace.
With conventional metal braces, the brackets are bonded to the front of your teeth.
Incognito braces are just the opposite – as they sit behind your teeth, known as the lingual surface – which makes them practically invisible. When you look in the mirror, you won’t see them. Your friends, family and coworkers won’t see them either.
These smooth braces are comfortable, as they follow the contours of your teeth. The gold brackets are precisely made, and highly polished for comfort.
Invisible - Hidden behind your teeth and practically invisible when you smile.
No white spots - Very low risk of white spots forming on the front of your teeth.
Customized - 100% customised for you, so the brackets fit perfectly on your teeth.
Comfortable - Braces are smooth, and follow the contours of your teeth.
Your treatment plan will be customised by your dentist with the help of the lab. Overall, lingual braces can correct the same kinds of alignment problems as conventional metal braces.
Digital scan of your teeth - Your dentist will a digital scan of your teeth. Then your brackets and wires will be custom-made using computer-aided design, 3D printing technology, and robotics. This technology helps ensure precise results in treatment.
Bonding – In a follow-up appointment, your brackets will be bonded to the backs of your teeth. While they may feel funny at first, you will get used to them. Everyone does! If you feel like your voice sounds different, it helps to slow down when you speak - until you get you used to your braces.
Your dentist can help you decide if lingual braces are the best option for you. Research shows this treatment is successful in achieving the goals you and your dentist have set.
However, lingual braces aren’t right for everyone. If you have a very deep overbite, for example, you might have trouble with lingual braces.
Your dentist will examine your teeth at your first appointment, and discuss the treatment options that will work for your situation.
If you need braces, but don’t want them to be noticeable, lingual braces might be your best option. Treatment may take a little longer, and the cost may be a little higher than conventional braces. But with our payment options, it’s possible for every patient to get the treatment that’s best for them.
