Men and women, aged 18 to 60 years and older, have been treated with Lingual braces. It is the most aesthetic braces treatment there is, and often is completely undetectable even from close quarters.
The ultimate aesthetic brace! Lingual braces use brackets positioned on the inside of the mouth to gently move and align the front 4-6 teeth, for those patients where speed and appearance are essential.
The braces attach on the inner surface of the teeth, where they cannot be seen! Your teeth can be straightened without worrying about your appearance. Because lingual braces are hidden behind your teeth, you can enjoy the process much more while you will notice how your teeth are changing when you look in the mirror.
Lingual braces are customised to your mouth which helps make them efficient, effective and less intrusive.
How it works
Simlar to traditional metal braces, Lingual braces use a combination of brackets and wires. Most people who can be treated with normal braces can also be eligible to use Lingual braces.
The difference is, these are completely custom-made to fit on the inside of your teeth. The process begins with a precise impression of your teeth. We will then send these to the Cfast Lingual laboratories, based on your dentists prescription, models of your mouth are made to represent the desired result your perfect smile.
The brackets are then custom-engineered to specifically fit each one of your teeth. Based on the placement and Orthodontist instructions, the wires are created. This is all packed and sent back to Stock Hill Dental Care in readiness for getting your braces.

It’s a cost-effective option for those who have always wanted a beautiful smile without the embarrassment of braces.

Risks and Benefits
Similar to the risks of all braces, you can expect some mild discomfort to the tongue and gums since the braces rub against them, however, this is usually only for a short period. Since the teeth and moving you are likely to feel soreness and movement especially on the days when the wires are tightened. We suggest taking painkillers an hour before those appointments. You must also take good care with cleaning around these brackets and wires since there is a risk of gum disease and patches developing around the brackets if they are not well cleaned. We offer discounted hygiene visits during this treatment, which we recommend to attend regularly. The most important part of the treatment is the after-care. We want you to have this treatment to last a life time…so long term maintenance is important and we can make recommendations specific to you.
The benefits are simple…straight teeth and a beautiful smile.
