Why show your braces if you don’t have to!
People of all ages are having their teeth straightened without showing braces on their teeth.
Lingual braces can be the answer for you too. Of course, any brace will involve a period of adaptation and effort on your part but most people mange quite quickly. Dr Manara will discuss this in greater detail with you at your consultation. Contact the practice if you would like to see how how these braces can help you.
They are placed on the back surfaces of your teeth, and so are totally invisible to anyone else. They give teenagers and adults the chance to straighten their teeth while keeping it a secret.
They could do the same for you!
Incognito® (previously iBraces in the USA), Win® and and Harmony® orthodontic braces are a relatively new generation of lingual orthodontic braces for teenagers and adults. Only Orthodontic Specialists are allowed to use these brace systems by the respective companies.
They are among a few fully customised lingual braces on the market today. They are manufactured using state-of-the-art CAD/CAM technology and rapid prototyping machines. What this means is that they can control the movement of your teeth more accurately. They are effectively 3D brackets. Simple lingual braces are heavily promoted but are usually just 2D brackets which means they cannot fully control the movement of your teeth.
