Lingual braces are entirely discreet as they are attached to the inner surface of the teeth making them virtually invisible. At the Smile Manchester Clinic, we are pleased to offer Incognito, which is one of the leading lingual brace systems in today’s market.
The brackets of these braces are completely customized to the shape and contour of each tooth in your mouth. The wires are connected to the brackets to gently straighten teeth into the desired position. Thin and lightweight, incognito braces are much more comfortable than traditional braces and just as effective while being invisible.
Treatment with Incognito braces usually requires between 10 and 24 months. There are several phases throughout the treatment process:
Step 1: Through a consultation, your dentist will determine if you are a suitable candidate and examine your mouth. Impressions of your teeth are taken and sent to the laboratory so that the braces can be custom made to perfectly fit your teeth.
Step 2: A second appointment is required to have your braces fitted. Incognito braces are different than traditional ones and each separate bracket is fitted individually first and then the wire is threaded through to hold in place.
Step 3: Regular check-ups will be required so you dentist can monitor your progress and make adjustments as necessary.
Step 4:Upon completion of treatment, your braces are taken off and you have a permanent new smile!
