Lingual braces are invisible. The brackets are placed on the back side of the teeth, and they are not visible from the front. Working just like traditional braces, lingual braces eventually straighten a patient’s teeth within the same amount of time metal braces would. Of course, each patient’s timeline depends upon the specific case of lingual braces aligning. Lingual braces can significantly enhance an individual’s appearance – without the self-confidence shakers of metal braces. Therefore, lingual braces are a great option for both adult professionals and teens who would feel more confident with invisibility all while managing great dental health.

Invisalign is an exciting development in orthodontics where it is possible to move teeth using a series of transparent aligners which are placed over the teeth. When the aligners are in place, they are nearly invisible to the naked eye allowing you to smile with confidence whilst your teeth are being gently moved into a new and more aesthetic position.

This is the most common type of brace today. Brackets are glued onto the teeth and linked by wires. Small elastic hoops are often used to hold the wire in position. The wires exert gentle pressure to move the teeth into a new position. The brackets can be metal, ceramic, transparent or even gold and the elastic hoops come in many colors.
