There is a solution to having straighter teeth without having to wear metal braces. Known as invisible or discrete orthodontics, this type of treatment offers you the choice of wearing a clear and sometimes removable appliance while straightening and aligning your teeth.
Invisalign is an effective teeth straightening treatment that provides an aesthetically-pleasing discrete alternative to fixed braces. One of our most popular systems for adult patients, because it is so easy to use and the aligners are virtually invisible. This is often a favourable option for adults who have professional careers and don’t feel comfortable wearing unsightly ‘train track’ braces for months on end. The technology behind invisible orthodontics is highly advanced and may give some patients a much shorter treatment time, depending on their individual cases. You can also enjoy the flexibility of your braces being hidden from an untrained eye, making you feel less self-conscious when socialising or speaking in public. With removable devices you can also take them out to eat or for special occasions, so they fit around your lifestyle.
The clear acrylic aligners are created using a state-of-the-art 3D computer imaging system, and they simply fit over the teeth, gradually moving and straightening them, with each aligner being removable, light and comfortable. As they are removable you are able to eat and drink whatever you wish then clean your teeth easily during treatment. The best thing is that nobody else will even notice you are wearing them. It is important to remember that straighter teeth are healthier teeth. When your bite is properly aligned and your teeth are straightened, there are less gaps and areas for food to get trapped and plaque to build up on the teeth, causing decay. In that sense, invisible orthodontics is a long-term investment in your oral health.
This is a true invisible brace system as the braces are fitted and worn behind the teeth.
Orthodontics has come a long way in the past few years and we are now straightening teeth faster and more discreetly than ever before. And with more and more adults seeking orthodontic treatment in order to perfect their smiles, the demand for increasingly aesthetic braces has soared.
The Incognito™ brace system is the very latest advance in invisible lingual orthodontics and its cast-gold brackets are custom-made to fit onto the inside (lingual) surface of your teeth, making it virtually invisible.
As well as being our most invisible brace it offers all the benefits and precision of a fixed brace, ensuring you get the best possible results from your treatment. Its low profile brackets also help to make it one of the most comfortable lingual braces around.
Treatment can take up to two years but most of our patients begin to notice an improvement in just a few months. And because the Incognito™ brace is hidden behind your teeth it won’t be long before you’re showing off a more confident smile.
For simple cases involving just the front teeth we also offer Incognito™ Lite. With all the benefits of the Incognito™ hidden brace, it straightens just your front teeth, helping to create a confident smile in a matter of months.
The cost of Incognito™ lingual braces varies depending on the complexity of your case and how long your treatment is likely to take. To find out more about the cost of your treatment book a no-obligation consultation with one of our specialist orthodontists.
