Lingual braces are applied behind the teeth as compared to metal or ceramic braces which are applied to the front of your teeth. Often called “Invisible Braces”, they are the best and only non-visible form of fixed orthodontic therapy. Although lingual braces are more expensive, they offer a highly cosmetic alternative to those patients who otherwise would not consider treatment.
Lingual braces will transform the way you look. If your teeth are badly aligned now, they are also probably affecting your facial appearance. Since the alignment of your teeth contributes greatly to the way your mouth and jaws look, improved alignment results in a more attractive facial appearance. The way your teeth are aligned also affects your bite, as well as the bone and gum tissue. Proper alignment of your teeth and a correct bite promotes overall good oral health. Lingual braces are just as effective as traditional braces but as they are at the back, your teeth are not obscured and you can see your smile improve daily.
Lingual braces are popular amongst our patients, with people often travelling from far and wide in order to receive this specialist treatment. If you have crooked teeth or are not happy with their alignment and would like to improve your smile with lingual braces please contact us today.
