If you’re thinking about braces, and you’re keen to go for something discreet, you may be wondering whether clear braces or lingual braces are your best bet. Today, there are so many incredible treatment options out there, and lots of patients are spoiled for choice. If you’re weighing up your options, here is some useful information about our incredible invisible braces.
Clear braces are a very popular option as many people don’t want to show off a bulky brace when they smile. If you want the convenience of a removable brace, as well as being able to undergo treatment in secret, systems like Invisalign are a good choice. Invisalign aligners are suitable for those with moderate orthodontic problems and they’re great for patients who don’t want to worry about anyone else knowing that they’ve got braces. Invisalign aligners are made from transparent plastic, and they’re really easy to incorporate into your daily life. You can take them out when you need to eat or clean your teeth, so you don’t have to adapt your daily routine in any way. If you would prefer a fixed brace, discreet options include Damon Braces and Six Month Smiles. These braces are a lot more discreet than traditional metal fixed braces, but they are visible, and if you dream of going incognito, lingual braces are probably your best bet.
Lingual braces are fixed braces, which also offer you the chance to have treatment without anyone else knowing. These braces are attached to the back of your teeth, so nobody will be able to see them when you smile. Lingual braces are finer and more delicate than traditional fixed braces and they use innovative technology to prevent friction and minimise pain. We offer STb Social 6 lingual braces, which are designed for minor orthodontic misalignment. Treatment is rapid, as it focuses on the social 6, the teeth at the front of the mouth. Typically, cases can be completed within 6-16 weeks.
