Incognito “Lingual braces”

The Incognito lingual braces are hidden behind the teeth, which makes them unnoticeable when you smile. In the Incognito system, brackets are custom-made to match your teeth’s shape. The Incognito lingual brace system is the only fixed appliance system with intelligent wires and brackets specifically designed to achieve the desired results.

Why lingual braces?

Nowadays, some great options are available, but Lingual Braces are the best option for people who would rather hide the fact that they’re undergoing orthodontic treatment. In lingual braces, the brackets are strategically situated behind the teeth so that they will not be seen from the front.

How does incognito work?

We A digital scan of your teeth will be required first in order to create 3D digital models of your teeth, which will be used to manufacture custom brackets. In order to convert your digital model and manufacture your braces, sophisticated CAD/CAM technology is used. It will take about six weeks for us to receive your new braces. In the next step, the braces will be cemented onto the teeth, and the wires will be connected to the brackets. Following this, you will need to visit us every 6-8 weeks for adjustments.

How long would I need lingual braces?

The length of treatment depends on the complexity of the treatment plan and is not affected by the type of brace used. In the case of minor irregularities, treatment may take as little as 7-12 months. However, more complex treatments may take as long as 20-24 months.

How much does incognito cost?

The cost depends on whether you want top and bottom braces or only one arch corrected – pricing based on examaination.
