TRANSFORM YOUR SMILE

If you’re looking for a more discreet style of brace, then lingual braces are for you. The majority of people don’t like the look of traditional metal braces. These braces are a fantastic option if you’re self-conscious about how braces look and don’t want to draw attention to your dental work. These braces have the same components as traditional braces, but they’re fixed to the back of your teeth instead of the front.

WHAT ARE LINGUAL BRACES?

These braces are an invisible type of brace that are concealed by sitting on the back of your teeth. So when you smile, no-one will see your braces. They work very similarly to traditional braces – they use brackets, wires and sometimes rubber bands. Lingual means “toward the tongue” meaning that these braces will only be seen if you open your mouth extra wide.

HOW DO LINGUAL BRACES WORK?

Like metal braces, brackets are attached to the back of your teeth using a dental adhesive. Wires are attached which then apply a continuous pressure to gently guide your teeth into alignment. Brackets are custom made for your teeth so they are virtually invisible whilst doing their job. They work just as efficiently as traditional metal braces in correcting dental problems.

ARE THEY RIGHT FOR ME?

Even though these types of braces are similar to traditional metal braces, not everyone is a good candidate for them. If you have a severe overbite, lingual braces will not be as effective. Depending on the shape of your mouth, very few people can experience difficulties with speech. At your free consultation with one of our specialist orthodontists, they’ll be able to assess whether these braces will be right for you. If not, they’ll recommend a suitable alternative.
