Introducing Incognito – how lingual braces can straighten your teeth discreetly

Incognito braces are among the most popular orthodontic treatments at our Weybridge dental practice. They employ the traditional principles of orthodontics, but there’s one big difference: they are lingual braces, which means they are placed on the back of your teeth. This means that they are highly discreet.

How do lingual braces work?

Incognito lingual braces work in the same way as conventional braces, using a system of wires and brackets to gently move your teeth into a more desirable position. The major difference is that they are placed on the back of the teeth, next to the tongue, meaning that nobody will know you are having treatment unless you choose to tell them.

Although other lingual brace systems are available, Incognito is the only 100% customised appliance system for invisible orthodontics currently available in the UK.

The latest technological advances are used to create braces entirely customised to the shape of your teeth and your dental needs. At Surrey Braces in Weybridge your orthodontist will create a unique prescription for Incognito lingual braces to produce the ideal results.

Further advantages of Incognito braces

As well as being able to smile with confidence during treatment without a hint of metal on show, Incognito braces also produce fantastic and predictable results, thanks to the 3D imaging technology used by orthodontists to create your bespoke set of braces.

There is no need to remove your braces to eat and drink, and while it may take a few days for your tongue to get used to the braces, they are also renowned for being highly comfortable.

As with all orthodontic treatment, you will need to ensure that you clean around your Incognito braces carefully. Your dentist or hygienist will be able to advise you on how best to do this.
