Lingual Braces Treatment in Leicester & Loughborough
Lingual braces can be used to treat a variety of orthodontic problems and are an extremely discreet way of straightening teeth compared with traditional braces.
The brackets and wires that are bonded to the back surfaces of the teeth making them virtually invisible to other people.
We offer several types of lingual braces including comprehensive lingual braces, 6 Month Lingual Braces and STb Lingual braces.
Lingual braces are tiny metal brackets that are fitted to the inside surface of the teeth and so are not visible when you smile. This treatment requires a higher level of expertise and time to fit the brackets in comparison to standard braces. For this reason, they tend to be the most expensive option when it comes to straightening teeth. There are different types of lingual braces:
- Comprehensive Lingual Braces – can be used to treat any orthodontic problem
- Lingual STb Braces – the brackets for this system are small, round and self-ligating
- 6 Month Lingual Braces – only treat the front teeth that are visible when you smile
The Dental Suite was one of the first practices in the UK to provide Lingual 6 Month Braces to its patients. Lingual braces are an ideal solution for those who want don’t want anyone to know that they are having teeth straightening treatment. Our patients either opt for Lingual braces or Invisalign if they want a discrete solution.
Lingual braces are placed on the back of the teeth, therefore no one can see you are wearing them. The great thing is that lingual braces can be used with the Powerprox six month braces / 6 month smiles technique, allowing treatment times to be much quicker than traditional braces. Therefore, you can now have a beautiful smile in a short time without anyone knowing you are wearing braces.
