Everyone wants to have perfectly straight teeth that they can be proud of. But most of the time, this involves wearing a contraption across the front of your teeth for years in order to bring them into line. Braces are not a very attractive prospect and a number of people are put off by the thought of them. But there is one brace that is a class above the rest. Lingual braces are becoming increasingly popular because they are effective and virtually invisible.
How do lingual braces work?
But how can a brace be invisible? Surely you can see some of it? Well lingual braces actually sit behind your teeth rather than in front so that they are virtually hidden. The mechanism is exactly the same as other braces as they work by tightening the wires to pull the teeth into line. They are 100% custom made to fit your teeth and have had great success in creating the perfect smile.
The London lingual braces centre offers you this form of brace and it’s very easily fitted. Most people are eligible for a lingual brace and all you need to do is book a consultation to make sure that you are suitable. If this is the case, an impression of your teeth is made and a technologist can then create individual brackets to fit on the back of your teeth. The brackets are held together by thin archwires, which are routinely tightened when you visit the dentist. There might be slight discomfort from this but you’ll soon get used to the feel of the braces.
Some advice for lingual wearers
Lingual braces are exceedingly popular, especially amongst celebrities as they are very discreet and effective. You may need to wear them for up to three years but the time frame might be considerably shorter as they have a high success rate. Just make sure that you keep the braces clean and avoid eating foods that might pull on the braces such as chewing gum or caramel. Other than that, the braces will not affect your every day life and you can continue without feeling that everyone is staring at your mouth, as they are the most discreet way to achieve that perfectly straight smile.
