Lingual fixed appliances are braces attached to the rear of the teeth, making your use of braces less visible to others.
Lingual braces are the ideal solution for anyone who requires a discreet method of straightening their teeth.
Our hidden braces are custom-fit to achieve the best-possible results in the shortest-possible time, allowing you to get the smile you’ve always dreamed of.
How do Lingual braces work?
Lingual braces work in the same way as traditional fixed brace systems. A wire grips the bracket attached to your teeth, gradually moving them to the desired position over time.
The only difference between lingual braces and traditional braces you’re more familiar with is the fact that they’re affixed to the back of your teeth, thus becoming hidden from others.
Do hidden braces affect speech?
When lingual braces are first fitted they can cause some patients to lisp. This isn’t permanent, however, and you will typically notice the lisp go away after a week or two as you get used to talking with your new braces.
Can I see what my teeth will look like after braces?
Yes! We have a specialist system called an iTero scanner which produces a 3D model of your teeth before treatment and provides a prediction of what your teeth will look like after treatment, giving you a great idea of how braces could help you.
In addition, we can also provide before and after photographs of people with similar teeth to yours. Our Private Patient Coordinator can provide an outcome simulation for you free of charge in just 30 minutes!
How long does treatment take?
This depends on the complexity of your case. Minor irregularities can be completed in just six months*. Complex cases will take much longer, 12-18 months is common.
* Treatment times vary depending on individual patient needs and must be determined at your assessment consultation.
