“Before I used to feel quite self conscious about smiling but now I think I will be able to take pictures and so on without being self conscious about it.”

Kerrie, Hanwell, London

Incognito lingual braces are an ideal solution if you want to straighten your teeth and regain your confidence about your smile, without having to wear visible braces.

They are hidden, truly invisible braces, for all types of dental concerns from mild crowding to gappy teeth. They are placed behind your teeth and are custom made and shaped to fit your mouth.

What are Incognito Lingual Braces?

Incognito Lingual braces are custom made braces which are fitted behind your teeth, making them a virtually invisible alternative to conventional metal braces.

When would I need Incognito Lingual braces?

Incognito lingual braces are used to treat all types of dental situations:

  • Crooked or protruding teeth
  • Widely spaced or gappy teeth
  • Overlapping teeth
  • Inverted teeth
  • Overcrowded teeth
  • Protruding or 'goofy' teeth

What is the procedure?

To get the smile you want, with lingual braces you are choosing braces are that are manufactured individually to ensure a perfect fit and a perfect result.

During your first appointment, we will take models of your teeth and send them to a special laboratory in Germany.

The models of your teeth are scanned into a computer and the braces are designed digitally. The arch wire is specially shaped to fit behind your teeth helping your teeth move into the correct position.

At your second appointment, your braces are fitted on the inner side of the teeth, next to your tongue, making them completely invisible.

On average your treatment will take anywhere from 9 - 24 months to complete.

We will see you every 4 - 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.

Once your treatment is complete, we will provide you with a retainer to ensure your teeth stay in position and you can enjoy your new smile for a lifetime.

What are the benefits of treatment?

If you do not want anyone to know you are wearing braces then Incognito lingual braces are an ideal choice.

  • Customisation: They are individually designed and produced just for you
  • Aesthetics: Because they are placed on the back of the teeth they are virtually invisible from the outside
  • Time: Visible success in only a short time
  • Comfort: Most patients experience minimal discomfort and speech interference. After just a short adjustment period, you will be able to eat and speak normally
  • Reliable: Correction of all types of orthodontic problems
  • Age: Suitable for all age groups
  • Safe: No risk of damage to the front tooth surface
  • Speed: Fewer wire adjustments can mean fewer visits to the practice
  • Allergies: Since the brackets are made from gold, nickel allergies are not a problem
  • Flexibility: Can be used in combination with other braces

How will I feel after treatment?

Tooth movement with Incognito Lingual braces are gentle and comfortable.

When you first have your lingual braces fitted, you may experience some mild discomfort or soreness as your teeth start to move into their new position. This is usually temporary and your mouth will adapt to your hidden braces within a few days.

Incognito braces are fixed behind the teeth and therefore cannot be removed for cleaning. It is therefore important that you brush well. We provide you with a complimentary orthodontic care kit with special interdental brushes to keep your teeth and brace clean.

In order to look after your teeth and braces, it is best to avoid:

  • eating toffees, boiled sweets, chewing gum, chocolates
  • fizzy drinks and fruit juices
  • eating hard foods such as apple or crusty bread which may damage the braces 

How long will my treatment take?

Incognito lingual braces are as individual as you are. That’s why the duration of treatment will differ from one person to the next. Treatment time usually takes 9 - 24 months but will vary according to individual treatment needs and how complex your case is.

Our Specialist Orthodontist will see you every 4 - 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.

Free retainers

Wearing a retainer after your orthodontic treatment is an important step, because it keeps your teeth stable in their new position. To help you maintain your new smile, every Hidden brace treatment comes with free retainers at the end of treatment.

In addition, after completing your treatment, our Specialist Orthodontist will also see you for a two further complimentary appointments at six monthly intervals to ensure all is well.

How much will my Incognito Lingual braces treatment cost?

We understand that price is an important consideration. Like any orthodontic treatment, the fee for Incognito Lingual braces is dependent on your suitability for treatment, the complexity of your treatment and how long your treatment will take.

When you come to see us for your first consultation, we will determine the most appropriate braces treatment for you and provide you with a treatment plan. All scheduled appointments and aftercare are included in our fees. There are no hidden extras.

All our orthoodntic treatments come with a flexible payment plan to suit your needs.

To obtain an estimate for the total cost for your treatment, please call 020 8567 4344 for your consultation or email us.

What are the alternatives to the treatment?

Incognito Lingual braces might not be the best treatment for you and you might want to consider other orthodontic braces. There are always alternative treatments available. Remember we will discuss all options with you in your first consultation to make sure the treatment and fee suits you.

Alternative treatments: Metal Braces, Invisible Braces, Quick Braces
