Lingual Braces at a Glance

Lingual braces are an excellent alternative for teens or adults who want straight teeth without noticeable wire.

They are “hidden” behind your teeth (that’s why others may call them incognito braces) — so you can straighten your smile without anyone knowing you’re wearing them. Conversely, traditional metal braces are visible.

Moreover, If you think you would be forgetful in wearing aligners well, then Lingual braces may be a good choice as they are fixed to your teeth, meaning you can get on with life and forget about them.

How does this treatment work?

Try out this new way to straighten your smile without the obvious, shiny metal wires in front of your teeth!

Brace Yourself for a Beautiful Smile

Braces are used to help encourage your teeth to grow straight — to look much better and grow more naturally. When put on your teeth, braces apply continuous, gentle pressure to the teeth — making them gradually realign until they correct themselves.

This is often a long process, but the result is a much more attractive smile that will improve your confidence. Lingual braces can help solve the following teeth issues:

  • Misaligned teeth
  • Bad bites
  • Rotated teeth
  • Overcrowding of teeth
  • Gaps or spaces between teeth

Key features and benefits

Your way to straighten your smile Incognito!

Custom-created for your teeth

The Incognito system creates braces specifically to fit each and every patient’s teeth. Since they are custom-fitted, they will be perfectly suited for your mouth and more comfortable as a result.

Practically invisible to others

The most widely associated advantage of lingual braces is that they are virtually invisible since they are hidden on the inside of your teeth. Lingual braces continue to grow in popularity for people in customer-facing roles.

Confidence-boosting results

This type of hidden brace is suitable for any age. If you can wear fixed braces, you can also wear lingual braces. Children, teenagers, and adults can all benefit from lingual braces.

Frequently Asked Questions

Below you’ll find answers to the questions we get asked the most about teeth straightening.

Patients say it takes up to a few weeks to get used to lingual braces. However, for most patients, it happens in a matter of days.

Lingual braces are just as effective as traditional fixed metal braces, and treatment is for 7 to 12 months. Both treatment techniques may take 20 to 24 months for more complex cases.

It takes some getting used to because the brackets are fitted closer to the tongue. But once you have adjusted, you can certainly eat most foods while avoiding hard, sticky, and crunchy ones.

Lingual braces start at £2,000 to £3,000, but more complex cases can go as high as £10,000. You can, however, talk to a Park Orthodontist about plans and financing.

Lingual braces are attached behind the teeth closer to the tongue, meaning you can kiss with them on.

The length of treatment will vary on a case to cases basis. It could be as little as six months, or your lingual braces treatment may take up to 2 years.

To ensure your teeth alignment progresses well, you need to see your orthodontist every 6 to 8 weeks for adjustments.

Lingual braces can be customised for your specific treatment plan, so you can only get them on your front teeth.

Lingual braces can give you a slight lisp but only for a short while. Your lisp will disappear as soon as you have adjusted in a few days.

The best advantage of lingual braces is that it’s hidden and practically invisible. They are attached behind the teeth. Other people won’t know you are undergoing a teeth alignment procedure.
