Incognito™ is an invisible brace system with a difference. Unlike conventional braces, Incognito™ braces are placed on the inside of the teeth making them completely invisible to others. Incognito™ lingual braces are 100% custom-made for the individual and designed to fit the shape and contours of each individual tooth. The system uses advanced technology to move the teeth and create beautifully straight smiles.
Benefits of Incognito™
Invisible: this is the major advantage of Incognito™ lingual braces. Many people are put off having orthodontic treatment because they don't want to wear bulky, unsightly braces – this treatment provides an amazing solution. Because the Incognito™ braces are fitted to the rear of the teeth, they will be completely invisible to others.
Comfort: you may assume that lingual braces are painful because they lie so close to the tongue, but this is not the case. Incognito™ braces are extremely fine and the brackets are smaller than normal braces, so there is no risk of friction or cutting. There is also no risk of nickel allergies.
Fast treatment time: you will notice the results quickly and it is usually complete within 15-28 months.
Stages of treatment
Stage 1: we will initially work to find out if you are suitable for Incognito™, which is done through an inspection of your mouth and taking photographs. We will also talk you through the treatment process and answer your questions.
Stage 2: we will create tooth impressions so that a technician can fabricate your braces. The braces are hand-crafted using the latest technology.
Stage 3: the braces will be fitted by one of our highly trained dentists. Once the brackets have been fixed to the back of the teeth, the archwire will be threaded through and treatment can begin.
