What are Incognito Lite braces?
Incognito Lite Braces features custom-made cast-gold brackets, which attach to the inside of your teeth. Unlike the original Incognito brace, Incognito Lite is only fitted to your front six or eight teeth – also known as the ‘smile zone’. Incognito braces are fixed onto the back surfaces of your teeth so no one will know you are having orthodontic treatment.
Incognito Lite offers an affordable and efficient alternative for patients who are only concerned about the appearance of the front teeth. Treatment times can be much quicker using Incognito Lite as we are straightening a smaller area. The majority of cases can be completed within a few months.
Incognito Lite is a very versatile lingual brace. Its sophisticated design makes it ideal for treating moderate to complex problems. The only thing it can’t do is improve the way your back teeth bite together.
Treatment is very straightforward. Impressions of your teeth are sent to the Incognito laboratory to create models of your teeth. Following our precise instructions, the laboratory will create a model of the final results which can be expected after straightening. Images showing the way your teeth look now and how they will look after treatment are then sent to us for approval. Once the treatment plan has been approved the brackets and wires will be custom-made especially for you. The completed brackets and wires will be sent back to us so they can be bonded onto the backs of your teeth.
When your lingual brace is first fitted, you may find that your speech is affected for a day or two. However, it won’t take long to adapt and for any audible difference to disappear. In fact, you’ll soon forget the brace is even there. The only clue will be your ever-improving smile.
