Lingual Braces can be used to treat a variety of orthodontic problems and are an extremely popular method of straightening teeth.

Here we list a few reasons that Lingual Braces are preferred to traditional metal braces, and why they come so highly recommended by both patients and orthodontic professionals.

Lingual Braces are a very popular solution for people who feel self conscious about wearing a dental brace. Comprised of small brackets and archwires that are bonded to the back of the teeth, Lingual Braces are virtually invisible to the human eye, making them one of the most discreet and unobtrusive methods of getting straighter teeth and a more beautiful smile.  



Despite being far less visible, Lingual Braces work in much the same way as traditional metal braces to straighten the teeth effectively. At the beginning of this treatment metal brackets will be custom-made to fit the individual shape of your teeth, and attached to the back of each tooth in order to realign them. This treatment offers visible, lasting results within 6 to 24 months. 



We understand that cost is always a consideration when choosing a teeth straightening treatment, so we’re pleased to offer Lingual Braces as a practical and effective solution that offers great value for money to our patients and impressive, long-lasting results.
