Choosing Incognito lingual braces to subtly correct orthodontic issues

Incognito lingual braces are a discreet brace system that can be used to correct a wide range of orthodontic issues, from the quick and simple to the more severe. At Surrey Braces dental centre in Weybridge, they are one of the most popular brace systems for adults in need of orthodontic correction.

The biggest barrier to treatment among adults who want to straighten their teeth is the thought of wearing obvious metal braces for a long period of time. Braces remain, in many cases, the best way for your dentist or orthodontist to improve the alignment of your teeth, because they afford maximum control over each tooth’s movement, and produce highly predictable results.

However, at our Weybridge dental centre we understand the concerns people have about having to live, work, and socialise with a very obvious metal appliance for months or even years. That’s why we believe, in many cases, Incognito lingual braces are the best solution.

Whilst they are made of metal, Incognito braces won’t be obvious in daily life – in fact, they are unlikely to be noticed at all. That’s because they are lingual braces, which means they are fitted to the rear (or lingual) surfaces of the teeth. This means that only you, your dentist and your orthodontist need to know you are having treatment – unless you choose to tell friends, family, or colleagues, they simply won’t see them.

When you come to our Weybridge dental centre for an Incognito braces consultation, your orthodontist will assess the type and amount of correction you require. Unlike some other more cosmetically-focused discreet brace systems, Incognito lingual braces can correct a full spectrum of orthodontic complaints.

Your Weybridge orthodontist will use the latest 3D digital imaging technology to design your braces and show you predicted results of treatment. Once your braces are fitted you will quickly get used to them, although minor speech issues may arise for the first couple of days.

You will need to come into our Weybridge dental practice for periodic check-ups for the duration of treatment, and once your treatment is complete you will need to wear a retainer.
