Lingual Braces vs. Invisible Aligners

ENQUIRE NOW

How can we help?

Many people come to us hoping for an invisible cure for crooked teeth. In the past, this was an impossible dream. But today, we have some incredible options that can straighten your teeth in secret. Two of our most popular options are invisible aligners and lingual braces.

Invisible aligners

Invisible aligners are removable braces made from transparent plastic. They glide over your teeth in a similar way to a mouth guard. Each aligner is bespoke and you wear a series of them throughout the treatment period. You can take your aligners out to clean your teeth and eat, so treatment doesn’t have a major bearing on day to day life. Our invisible aligner systems include Invisalign and Simpli5. Simpli5 is a fast-acting system that tackles minor issues in just 10-20 weeks. Invisalign is suitable for minor and moderate cases and treatment takes around 12-18 months.

Lingual braces

If you’re looking for a brace that is completely invisible when you smile, look no further than lingual braces. Lingual braces are fixed to the back of your teeth. From the front, your smile will look exactly the same and you can go about your daily business without anyone knowing that you’ve got a brace. We offer two innovative lingual brace systems: Incognito and STb Social 6. The latter is an excellent choice for those who only need minor correction. It focuses on the front teeth (the social 6) and produces results in just 16 weeks. Incognito is suitable for most patients, even if you have complex dental problems. These braces are made from gold and are completely bespoke to your teeth.

What’s the difference?

The main difference between lingual braces and aligners is that lingual braces are fixed and aligners are removable. Both options have their pros and cons and what suits one patient may not be the best option for another. To learn more and find your perfect match, call us today!
