Invisible Braces in Harrow
Invisible braces – a great way to your new smile!
If you are looking for a discreet way to straighten your teeth, consider lingual orthodontics – where a fixed brace is placed on the inside of the teeth. From the outside it is virtually invisible, which means that the positioning of your teeth is corrected without anyone noticing.
No-one need know you are having treatment unless you tell them!
The Incognito™ Lingual Bracket system is an orthodontic treatment where the brackets are fixed to the inner surface of the teeth. All brackets are made individually for each tooth and used with custom-made wires, which gently move your teeth into the right position. Most orthodontic problems can be treated with lingual braces; these may only be needed for short periods of time for simple problems, while more complex cases may take up to two years.
Some situations such as crooked lower front teeth are especially suited to treatment with lingual braces. The 2D system, which uses very low-profile and comfortable brackets, is a great way (and one of our most popular) to straighten the lower front teeth discreetly and efficiently
The majority of lingual braces are for adult patients but you can request this treatment for children from 14 years of age. Fees are about twice that of conventional treatment.
Dr Millen specialises in lingual orthodontics, and was one of the first orthodontists to study for a formal UK university qualification in this treatment methodology.
