Incognito Braces

What are Incognito Braces?

Incognito braces are the latest type of lingual brace which use an individual bracket system to reduce problems commonly associated with braces, such as speech and tongue irritations. Incognito braces are custom-made according to your individual requirements and are made from precious metal.

What does treatment involve?

The Incognito treatment will initially involve a silicone impression of your teeth being taken. The impression is then embedded in wax and processed through a 3D high resolution optical scanning device. Your individual brackets are then processed using state of the art digital software to ensure the brackets are created as per your individual requirements. Once created, the dentist will then fit the Incognito braces to the back of your teeth. They are completely invisible to others as each bracket is positioned on the back of each individual tooth for ultimate comfort.
