Here at Keppel Dentistry our top priority is giving you the best possible treatment to transform your smile and ensure you can enjoy healthier and more beautiful teeth.
Everyday our team of leading UK clinicians speak to patients who come to us looking for great results and from time to time there is a need to recommend the use of braces.
When you mention the word braces most people picture the rather ugly, chunky metal braces of the past and we find that particularly adults are reluctant to wear braces because they are either embarrassed or self-conscious to wear them in public, or they think they will be difficult or uncomfortable to use.
But there is really no need to worry as the latest developments in modern dentistry have provided an alternative which not only delivers fantastic results, but also allows people to have treatment no one will know about, let alone see.
Lingual braces offer the perfect discreet solution to patients who don’t want their treatment to be visible to the world when they smile. While traditional braces are attached to the front of the teeth and each bracket mass produced to fit the uniform shape of the tooth, Lingual braces have brackets which have been individually designed to fit the unique shape of the back of the teeth to ensure they are almost invisible when you smile, talk and eat so you can have complete confidence.
So exactly how do lingual braces work?
The brace’s brackets apply a low level amount of pressure onto the back of the teeth, this discreet treatment gently forces teeth into their correct position in the mouth to give a straighter, more symmetrical smile making it the perfection option for patients wanting to correct issues such as crowding, closing gaps and repositioning rotated teeth.
Comfortable to wear, yet incredibly hard working, lingual braces can be fitted across just two appointments with regular check-ups recommended to ensure progress is monitored at every stage and the best possible results are achieved.
Lingual braces are just one option available to you at Keppel Dentistry and our team of highly trained experts can work closely with you to determine the right treatment for you to given you confidence in your smile.
