Lingual braces are braces that are bonded on the back of the teeth, making them invisible to others. The word “lingual” refers to the inside tooth surface next to your tongue. We use Incognito™ by 3M, which are lingual braces that are 100% customized to the shape of your teeth and to your individual orthodontic treatment, making them comfortable, non-interfering, and as effective as traditional braces. Lingual braces are a great option for adults and teenagers who prefer not to show their braces.
How it works
Models made from impressions of your teeth are scanned onto a computer. From those scans, lingual braces are created just for you. Customized brackets and wires are made to fit your teeth and are bonded to the back of your teeth. We adjust your wires to gradually align your teeth, almost exactly the way we would if the brackets were on the front of your teeth.
