Incognito

Fly under the radar with your braces treatment

Are you tired of friends telling you how discreet their teeth straightening treatment was? It seems getting your teeth straightened as an adult is all the rage with clear aligners and tooth-coloured bracket and wire braces increasingly available at the dentist. Great for all of them, but perhaps not so much for you if you’ve been told your misalignments are too severe for clear aligners or those tooth-coloured fixed braces. Well there is no need to be down in the dumps about it anymore, not when you can get Incognito in Weybridge.

Incognito in WeybridgeYou don’t need to wear conspicuous fixed metal braces and endure stares and perhaps even sniggers. Incognito in Weybridge from Weybridge Orthodontics is a discreet, fixed braces treatment that can handle severe misalignments with ease.

How is this possible? It comes down to their innovative design.

Designed for discretion

Incognito uses the traditional mechanics of fixed metal braces pulling your teeth into alignment but with one massive difference – they are fixed onto the backs of your teeth. Each bracket is custom-made to fit the contours of the backs of your teeth, where they are secured in place by our braces dentist. They are completely hidden from view and are therefore the only braces treatment for severe misalignments that is both effective and discreet.

Time to adjust

Having braces on the backs of your teeth, next to your tongue, takes a little getting used to. But eventually the feel of those brackets and wires won’t be a distraction and you’ll be able to get on with your day as normal. You will have to invest some time in cleaning your braces properly, which can be a little trickier with the brackets on the backs of your teeth. But with some practice and advice from your dentist, you will get the hang of it.

Getting started

If you want to straighten out your teeth without the whole world knowing about it, then Incognito in Weybridge could be the way to go. The first step is to book a consultation with our braces dentist who will examine your teeth, take impressions and maybe x-rays too. So get in touch and we’ll get started.

Complex alignment solved with Incognito in Weybridge

To be honest, no one really thinks that wearing braces is going to improve their image, even if afterwards, when their teeth are straight, they will look amazing. We can dress up metal braces for kids with brightly coloured elastics round the brackets to make them a feature, but that’s not a look that’s going to work for adults. Unfortunately, most discreet and invisible braces are designed for people with mild to moderate alignment issues. Those with complex issues that require precision straightening over a pretty long period will have to have traditional bracket and wire braces.

Incognito in WeybridgeFortunately, at Weybridge Orthodontics, we have a great way you can get the best of both worlds and that’s with Incognito in Weybridge.

How Incognito in Weybridge works

Incognito braces still use metal brackets and wires, which are the style of braces most able to deliver the force and precision needed to correct complex and severe misalignments. The difference with Incognito in Weybridge is that the brackets are fixed to the tongue-side of the teeth rather than the fronts.

The gold alloy brackets are each individually made to precisely fit the inner surface of each tooth, using detailed measurements taken from impressions and a handheld scanner.

Once the brackets are in place, they are strung together with wire, just like traditional braces. The difference is that no one can see them.

How to get Incognito in Weybridge

Come in to see us at Weybridge Orthodontics and we can examine your teeth to make sure you do indeed need Incognito. If you do, we take all the measurements and send them off to the manufacturer. Because each bracket is custom-made, it takes about 3 weeks for the braces to be created and sent back to us for fitting to your teeth.

You will take a few days to get used to having braces on the inner surfaces of your teeth, and you will need to learn how to keep them thoroughly clean. But once you have got the hang of them, these braces will fit neatly into your life and over the next little while straighten out your teeth, apparently by magic.

Behind the scenes straightening

Not everybody got to have braces when they were young. Maybe you are one of those people, and now that you are an adult with your own income, you’d like to get your teeth straightened. Trouble is, getting a lovely straight set of teeth means wearing braces, and you’ve been told that your malocclusions are too complex to be successfully sorted out with discreet braces or clear aligners.

Incognito in WeybridgeSo, now you have a choice: you can either submit to clunky metal braces on the front of your teeth (not a great look in your line of work) or you can go without and spend the rest of your life holding your hand over your mouth every time you want to smile.

Actually, there is another way in Weybridge: Incognito. If you have never seen in Incognito in Weybridge, that can only mean that these invisible braces are doing what they are designed to do. That is, straightening people’s teeth while giving no clue of their presence to the rest of the world.

Here at Weybridge Orthodontics, we regularly fit Incognito braces to people’s teeth that are just too twisted, crowded, gappy or badly descended to work with simpler devices.

What is Incognito in Weybridge?

Incognito braces work like the usual bracket and wire braces. The difference is that they are fitted to the backs of the teeth, next to the tongue, where they cannot be seen.

These braces are made of gold alloy and there is a bracket for each tooth. Each bracket is custom-made to fit over the back surface of that tooth. The measurements are taken with a digital scanner or using impressions. Because the brackets are custom-made, it takes about 3 weeks between us taking your measurements and your braces arriving.

Once your braces are on, they gradually straighten your teeth with a pulling pressure as the wires between the brackets are tightened. The braces take a few days to get used to, but after that they won’t interfere with your speech.

Incognito in Weybridge can take a couple of years to work, depending on how misaligned your teeth are to start with.

It’s no longer a Catch 22 situation

Getting braces as an adult has always been a bit of a Catch 22 situation. You need to look good for your job, but having braces means that for a good while you won’t look good. If you have more complex alignment issues with your teeth, you may even be facing a couple of years with braces, and let’s face it, you never see braces down as a must-have item in the wardrobe of the busy professional. Thankfully with Incognito in Weybridge from us at Weybridge Orthodontics, you can get out of the Catch 22 and into a story with a happy ending for you and your teeth.

Incognito in WeybridgeNever seen Incognito in Weybridge?

Well that’s hardly surprising. Incognito is different from other braces designed for more complex treatments. These braces still rely on brackets and wires, which deliver more accurate, predictable movements, but they are hidden away on the inner surfaces of the teeth, next to the tongue, rather than on the fronts of the teeth.

The brackets are different as they have a different surface to deal with. Each bracket with Incognito in Weybridge is custom-made to fit the inner surface of each of your teeth. No 2 brackets are the same.

This means that when you come for your initial consultation, we will have to take some very accurate measurements of your teeth. To do this, we use 3D scanners. These scanners take hundreds of pictures of your teeth, which we then build into a highly accurate 3D image of them on a nearby screen. This is far more accurate than putty impressions.

We send these details to the Incognito laboratory, where your individual brackets are made. This takes longer than other devices, so there is a bit of wait between your initial consultation and your fitting appointment.

Once your Incognito braces are fitted, no one will be able to see them as they are hidden behind your teeth.

The James Bond of braces

He wears smart suits, drinks martinis and fights crime worldwide. But do you know what else makes James Bond so timelessly cool? It’s the gadgets. That pen or belt-buckle that magically turns into a lethal weapon; it’s the power that comes from expertly hiding fantastic technology, so 007 can get on with doing what he does best. When it comes to teeth straightening, we think Incognito in Weybridge really is the James Bond of braces. It’s traditional technology with an ingenious upgrade. It’s more than discreet, it’s completely hidden. And it lets you get on with doing what you do best without having to worry about conspicuous braces ruining your look.

Incognito in WeybridgeNeedless to say, we’re big fans of Incognito in Weybridge at Weybridge Orthodontics. The reason stems largely from the transformative effects we’ve seen these braces have on our patients lives, particularly those with more severe alignment issues with their teeth, who have often resigned themselves to either a lifetime of wonky teeth or the embarrassment of sporting the train track look during their treatment. We are always delighted to let them know that there is another way.

What’s the story with Incognito in Weybridge?

We haven’t quite got the panache of Q when it comes to unveiling technological innovations but let us lay out just what makes Incognito in Weybridge so different from other discreet teeth-straightening devices:

  • Incognito uses brackets and wires but rather than being fixed to the fronts of the teeth they are attached to the back surfaces of the teeth
  • Incognito can handle mild, moderate and severe misalignment issues owing to the fact that it uses traditional bracket and wire technology, which is designed to resolve more complex dental problems
  • Incognito is a highly customised teeth-straightening treatment as each bracket is specially designed to fit an individual tooth.

A great solution for tricky teeth

Have you noticed how fewer and fewer people have wonky teeth these days? How are yours? Have you heard about all the great new ways there are to get teeth straightened? Have you also heard that so many of the more discreet ways seem to be designed for people with only mild to moderate misalignment concerns? Great for them, but not so good for you if you’re on the more complex end of the misalignment spectrum.

Incognito in WeybridgeIf you’d like to get your teeth straightened by can’t face the months and months in brackets and wires that seem to be your only option, we have a nifty solution for you. Come and investigate Incognito in Weybridge.

If you have complex alignment issues, you are going to need more than an aligner or a very simple clear bracket and wire brace can handle. Clear aligners can’t, for example, pull down a tooth that has not descended properly, and the more simple bracket and wire devices are designed to work on the front few teeth only.

Incognito in Weybridge

This device can deal with any amount of complex straightening and it does it without anyone knowing you are wearing it. How? By being fixed to the tongue side of the teeth rather than the cheek side. Incognito in Weybridge is what is known as a lingual (tongue side) brace. It still has brackets, but each one is custom-made to go onto the backs on each individual tooth. Each tooth is measured very accurately with a scanner to get the exact dimensions and these are sent off to the manufacturer. Because each bracket is individually made, it takes about 3 weeks to get your braces made. That means there’s quite a long wait between your consultation and coming in to get your braces fitted, but it will be worth it.

Of course, it will take a few days to adjust to wearing Incognito in Weybridge and you may well have to make some brave food choices to keep your device in one piece, but at the end of treatment, it will have so been worth it.

It isn’t a problem with Incognito

There are times when you’ll want to show off you new bling, whether it’s a piercing complete with a shiny, new stud or a flashy pair of cufflinks gifted to you. Glinting metal isn’t always a beautiful sight to behold though. Wearing braces is a prime example. Maybe friends have told you that you don’t need to endure the embarrassment of fixed metal braces thanks to clear aligners or tooth-coloured braces. Unfortunately, you know those are of no use to you; your misalignments are just too severe.

Incognito in WeybridgeGood news, at Weybridge Orthodontics we have just the thing for you, discreet braces that can handle mild, moderate and severe cases of misalignment. It’s called Incognito. In Weybridge this teeth-straightening treatment is a popular choice for adults with crowding, protrusion or rotation of their teeth, which other discreet braces just can’t handle.

How does Incognito work?

Incognito in Weybridge is a fixed braces treatment. But before you picture yourself sporting the train track look, hold on. Although these braces are metal and fixed, they are attached to the back surfaces of your teeth, facing your tongue. So, unless someone gets very up close and personal, they aren’t going to spot your braces.

Using the traditional mechanics of fixed metal braces means Incognito in Weybridge can handle more severe cases of misalignment that other discreet braces, such as Invisalign or Six Month Smiles, can’t.

Custom-made just for you

As Incognito braces are attached to the backs of your teeth, each bracket is specifically designed to fit onto each individual tooth. This really is the ultimate is personalised braces treatment.

See the final finish from the start

3D imaging technology means you’ll get the chance to see the predicted results of your treatment before you even get your braces fitted. We’ll also be able to give you an estimate of roughly how long it will take to achieve these results.

What’s next?

Braces behind your teeth with Incognito in Weybridge

Braces don’t really add to your image. As a kid, you can expect to get teased for having braces, so if you are an adult in an important position at work, or perhaps you deal with the public, or have to look extra well-groomed in some way, the last thing you need is braces on your teeth.

Trouble is, the first thing you need is great, well aligned teeth. It’s a conundrum, that’s for sure. Or at least it used to be, but dental researchers have been working hard over the last couple of decades to design braces that don’t dominate your mouth. There are several that work well on mild to moderate misalignment issues, but if you have more complex issues, does it mean you have to have the metal mouth look?

Incognito in WeybridgeNo, not if you come for Incognito in Weybridge with us at Weybridge Orthodontics.

Never heard of Incognito in Weybridge?

Well then, here’s your chance to find out more! Incognito is a brand of fixed braces, but not as you know them. Instead of having the brackets and wire on the front surfaces of your teeth, they go on the inside, adjacent to your tongue. This means they are completely hidden from view.

The brackets look a bit different too. They are made of gold alloy for starters and each one fits over the entire surface of your tooth. They take a bit longer to make as each bracket is custom-made from detailed measurements to exactly fit each tooth.

Because you have a bracket on each tooth, Incognito in Weybridge works really well to correct complex alignment problems. Such issues take longer to correct as the teeth have to be moved in order. The biological processes involved in moving teeth – the dissolution and rebuilding of bone around the tooth to allow it to move – cannot be hurried. Because of this, complex issues can take a good couple of years to sort out, but with your braces hidden from view, that’s not such a big deal.

To find out about Incognito in Weybridge, why not come in for a consultation?

The tongue side of teeth straightening with Incognito in Weybridge

It’s all well and good getting adult braces when you only have mild to moderate alignment issues going on. You can have clear ceramic brackets, tooth-coloured wires or clear aligners that pretty much disappear altogether when they go on over your teeth. But what if your teeth are way more wonky than such devices can cope with? Do you have a stark choice between living with teeth that look like they had a party in your mouth or spending a couple of years behind the bars of heavy duty braces?

Incognito in WeybridgeThe answer is no. There is a third option: Incognito in Weybridge from us at Weybridge Orthodontics. These gold alloy beauties can cope with any alignment issue, no matter how severe and complex, and they can do it with complete discretion, even more so than clear aligners.

Behind the teeth, not in front

The clever thing about Incognito in Weybridge is that they are fixed to the tongue side of the teeth rather than the cheek side. This means they are completely hidden from view.

Incognito is a bracket and wire device but the difference is that each bracket is made to measure for the lingual side of each of your teeth. We scan your teeth to get pinpoint accurate measurements and devise a treatment plan. The gold alloy brackets take a while to make, so there is a hiatus between your measurement appointment and coming back to get your braces fitted.

Once they are on, you may find it takes a few days to get used to wearing them. Your speech may not be as clear as you adjust to having lingual braces but this will pass.

You will need to come back to us for regular check-ups and adjustments and how long the treatment takes depends entirely on what needs to be done. It could be 2 years or more for complex alignment issues. To everyone around, it will look as though your teeth are being straightened by magic.

After your teeth are aligned, you will need to wear a retainer to keep your teeth in the correct place while the jawbone settles down around them.

Try something different

Sometimes, going against the norm can become the popular thing to do. Way back in the 90s going back to front with your baseball cap was all the rage. Just a few years ago back to front shirts were causing a stir. When it comes to braces, going back to front is also proving to be a big hit with adult patients.

By back to front, we mean attaching fixed metal braces to the backs of the teeth, instead of their fronts. Yes, it’s possible, as unusual as it sounds. These are lingual braces and at Weybridge Orthodontics we are proud to provide one of the leading brands across the UK, including in Weybridge: Incognito.

Incognito in WeybridgeIs Incognito right for you?

Unlike some other discreet teeth straightening systems that focus on only the front teeth or only mild misalignments, Incognito in Weybridge can resolve a range of dental problems. Mild, moderate and complex cases can all be treated with Incognito, including issues with spacing, crowding, protruding teeth or teeth that do not bite together properly.

Another benefit of Incognito is that these braces can be used at any age, from childhood through to adulthood.

How does Incognito work?

Incognito works along similar principles as traditional fixed metal braces, pulling the teeth into alignment via a wire that connects the brackets attached to the teeth. However as the brackets are attached to the backs of the teeth, every single one must be custom-made for each of your teeth. Incognito in Weybridge really is the ultimate in personalised teeth straightening treatment.

The technology behind Incognito

3D imaging technology is used to custom-design Incognito braces. This comes with the added benefit of giving you the chance to see what the finished product will look like and also means we can predict the effectiveness of your treatment with a high degree of accuracy.
