Incognito lingual braces
Using similar technology to traditional metal braces, lingual braces are attached to the BACK of your teeth, so no one can tell you’re wearing them.

Are braces right for me?
Getting braces can be a big decision. When you choose to correct tooth and jaw misalignment with orthodontic treatment, you will receive more benefits than just a glowing smile. Through our treatments you can also gain a better bite, improved dental health, better hygiene and confidence to last a lifetime. Modern orthodontics has advanced to the point where corrective devices are less obvious (even invisible), more comfortable and require a shorter treatment time.
How do you know if orthodontic treatment is right for you?
The only way to know for sure is by coming to visit one of our Specialist Orthodontists for a free comprehensive consultation.
During your appointments, we do everything we can to help you feel calm and comfortable. None of the treatments require numbing or drilling and you shouldn’t feel any pain. You may experience some soreness and/or tenderness as your teeth adjust to new braces. This is normal, but shouldn’t last long. We will suggest a few methods to keep you comfortable based on your treatment and needs.
