Lingual braces in Farnham are an option here at Elmsleigh House Dental Clinic for our patients who are concerned about how metal braces would look on their front teeth. Lingual braces are clever in that they are applied to the backs of the teeth, so people will not notice that you have braces.
What are lingual braces?
As lingual braces are placed on the backs of the teeth, these types of braces are less noticeable and are a popular choice among our patients who are concerned with wearing traditional fixed metal braces. Lingual braces in Farnham are recommended for teenagers and adults with overcrowded teeth and bite problems. The outcomes are comparable to conventional metal braces, without any of the worry of having that train track look.
How do they differ from traditional braces?
Lingual braces in Farnham are custom-made to your teeth, whereas traditional braces are comprised of standardised brackets, bands and wires.
Here at Elmsleigh House Dental Clinic we use Incognito lingual braces as they fit to the back of the teeth where they are very difficult to see, whereas conventional braces are mounted to the front of the teeth and can be very noticeable.
Can anyone have Incognito braces?
Adults and teenagers over 13 years old are prime candidates for Incognito braces. In most cases, being a candidate for traditional braces means that you are also a candidate for lingual braces.
After a thorough initial examination from our Specialist in Orthodontics, Kostas Spathoulas, we will be able to provide professional guidance about your candidacy for lingual braces in Farnham.
What dental issues can be treated using lingual braces?
Lingual braces can be used to correct many dental problems. If you suffer from crooked, crowded or overlapping teeth, they could be the right option for you to improve your smile.
Why Incognito braces?
Incognito braces in Farnham offer many advantages, such as being permanent, so you do not have to worry about changing or losing aligners.
They are mounted on the back of the teeth where people cannot see them and are designed to fit snugly to your teeth for increased comfort.
