For many of our patients, discretion is top of the list when it comes to choosing the most important features for orthodontic treatment. Most of us are image-conscious, and almost all patients prefer a discreet solution. The good news is that we have some fantastic options available for those who don’t want the hassle or worry of wearing a visible brace, so which discreet brace is best for you? Let’s explore some options:
Lingual braces are fixed braces, but unlike conventional braces, lingual braces are attached to the back of the teeth, which makes them invisible when you smile. We have two lingual braces systems: Incognito, which is suitable for most patients and STb Social 6 braces, which are ideal for those who only need minor correction. Lingual braces are an excellent choice for anyone who longs to undergo treatment in secret. STb Social 6 braces are also perfect for those in a hurry, as treatment only takes around 16 weeks.
Invisalign is a very popular clear brace system, which uses a series of clear aligners to straighten the teeth. Invisalign aligners are made from transparent plastic and each patient receives a set of custom-made appliances. Each aligner is worn for 2 weeks and then swapped for the next brace in the sequence. Invisalign aligners are really convenient because you can take them out to brush your teeth and eat. Similar treatments include Simpli5.
Fixed braces have something of a bad reputation, but the braces that are available now are a far cry from the appliances many of us envision. Modern fixed braces are much more discreet than older versions, as they are smaller and sleeker and they contain transparent and tooth-coloured parts. Examples include CFast and Six Month Smiles, both of which also offer speedy treatment with an average treatment time of six months.
