Many adults and older teenagers who have never had braces think that it is now too late for them. Others are reluctant to wear metal braces for 2 or more years. Truth is that you can still have a beautiful smile with a straight set of teeth through discreet orthodontics in Weybridge.
Here at Weybridge Orthodontics, we offer Invisalign aligners and Incognito lingual braces for patients who want to have their teeth straightened without the hassle of traditional braces. Our experienced dentist will examine your teeth thoroughly and help you decide which option is the best for you.
Incognito lingual braces
Incognito fixed braces are placed on the backs of your teeth where they are hidden from view. Just like traditional braces, they can treat a number of dental and bite problems within the same amount of time metal braces would. Incognito braces are customised to fit your individual teeth.
Your braces are made in a special laboratory based on teeth impressions our dentist will make. They are crafted with the help of 3D computer technology. Once ready, our dentist ill fix them in place on the backs of your teeth and you’ll be on your way to a beautiful smile.
Invisalign straightens teeth by using removable and almost invisible aligners, which are made specifically for your teeth. Each aligner is replaced every 2 weeks to gently and gradually move your teeth into their straightened positions. Unlike metal braces, Invisalign aligners have no wires or metal brackets. Instead, our dentist controls the timing and amount of movement of your teeth through the use of the series of specially designed aligners – each shaped a little differently to push your teeth that bit further.
Invisalign aligners can treat many different dental problems but they may not be your best option if you have severely misaligned teeth.
Invisalign aligners are comfortable to wear, barely noticeable and can be removed for eating and cleaning your teeth. However, you must wear them for at least 22 hours per day for effective treatment. The average treatment time is 14 months, though each patient is different.
