Incognito Hidden Braces
Incognito braces are known as Hidden braces as the fully customised brackets are fixed to the back surfaces of the teeth so they are not easily visible. These hidden braces are able to deliver predictable results and are quite different from most fixed braces that use conventional, mass-produced brackets to move teeth. Instead Incognito uses individually designed brackets that are customised exclusively for your use, and overall treatment time can often be quicker than using generic, mass-produced brackets. Incognito braces are designed to be able to treat most orthodontic problems, including crowded or crooked teeth, gaps in between teeth and overbites, underbites, crossbites and open bites.
Incognito braces can only be prescribed and fitted by a specialist orthodontist. All our patients are treated under the care of our specialist orthodontist Preet Bhogal.
What are Incognito Braces?
Incognito braces use the latest state-of-the-art technology to produce brackets that follow the natural contours of the back surfaces of your teeth. Each bracket is individually cast in gold before being highly polished to ensure it feels smooth in the mouth. The brackets are individually customised; they can be designed to be flatter and less obtrusive than conventional brackets which ensure they are more comfortable to wear.
Why Choose Incognito Braces?
Traditional fixed braces are usually worn across the front of the teeth, and even if the brackets are clear such as with Damon Clear Braces some people feel particularly self-conscious about wearing them. In contrast Incognito braces are fixed onto the back surfaces of your teeth so no one need know you are having orthodontic treatment.
Incognito Lite, hidden braces are especially designed to straighten the front six teeth. These use exactly the same customised brackets, and treatment is especially popular with people who wore braces as children but who have since seen their teeth move slightly out of alignment.
What Is Treatment like?
Treatment is very straightforward. Impressions of your teeth are sent to the Incognito laboratory. The laboratory will create models of your teeth, and will follow our precise instructions, fabricating a model of the final results 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, beginning the process of straightening your smile.
