Have you ever thought about having orthodontic treatment and then decided against it because you didn’t want to wear highly visible braces? Many people want straight teeth but they don’t want to put up with braces that are there for all to see. In the past, it wasn’t possible to undergo treatment in secret, but how would you feel if we told you that we could straighten your smile without anyone knowing? With lingual braces, you can keep your treatment to yourself and then dazzle your nearest and dearest with a perfectly straight smile.
Lingual braces are similar to conventional fixed braces, but they are applied to the lingual side of the tooth. This is the back of the tooth. With lingual braces, you can achieve amazing results without anyone else being able to spot your brace, as it is hidden behind the teeth. Lingual braces use forces generated by brackets and wires to move the teeth like traditional fixed braces, but they offer an invisible alternative to the braces you’re used to seeing. If you’d like straight teeth, but you don’t want to worry about how you’ll look during treatment or what others will think, lingual braces could be a brilliant option for you.
At Harley Street Dental Studio, we’re always keen to make sure our patients have access to the best treatments on the market, and we’re delighted to offer two incredible lingual brace treatments: Incognito and STb Social 6 braces. Incognito braces are ideal for patients who have moderate or complex needs. They are made from bespoke parts, and they use powerful but gentle forces to guide the teeth into position. STb Social 6 braces are designed for patients who have mild orthodontic issues that affect the social 6, the front teeth. Treatment times are very short at just 6-16 weeks.
Lingual braces offer a host of benefits, and they are particularly appealing to patients who don’t want their braces to be visible during their treatment. If you’d like to find out more or you’re keen to see if you’re a good match for lingual braces, call us today or get in touch online to arrange a consultation.
