Secret Smile | Lingual Braces
Secret Smile lingual braces is the latest technique to help straighten crooked, twisted teeth. Unlike traditional metal braces, lingual orthodontic braces are bonded and fixed to the back of your teeth so these are the only truly ‘invisible braces’ out on the market. Originally made famous in Hollywood, lingual braces is a popular approach with famous celebrities such as Tom Cruise.
If you want the results of a fixed brace without the visibility of metal, ceramic or wires, Secret Smile is the ultimate option for discreet braces.
Depending on how crooked your teeth, the treatment time for Secret Smile can be as little as 4 months. We are one of the leading practices to offer orthodontic treatment in Stoke-On-Trent, Staffordshire and are one of the first practices to offer Secret Smile Lingual Braces.
What makes Secret Smiles lingual brace so innovative?
- Average treatment time of only six months
- Metal brackets and wires are hidden away at the back of your teeth.
- No Extractions required
- Low forces and short overall orthodontic treatment times increase comfort, safety, and hygiene
- Secret Smile is typically less expensive than traditional braces, aligner therapy, or veneers
HOW DO SECRET SMILES LINGUAL BRACES WORK?
Secret Smiles cosmetic brace works by having attachments glued onto the back of your teeth and a wire is tied to this. Unlike traditional braces, we start off with extremely flexible wires, which moves your teeth gently and the process is repeated monthly until the teeth are straight.
We are able to straighten your teeth in such a short timescale because traditionally we would remove teeth if there is crowding. Spaces created from removing teeth usually take up to 1-2 years to fully close. However with the Secret Smiles technique, we perform Interproximal Reduction (IPR) by filing the edges of your teeth lightly to create just enough room for them to move into.
WILL I NEED RETAINERS AFTER TREATMENT?
Teeth are constantly moving so in order to maintain the straightness, we would fit a retainer immediately after treatment. You will receive one metal wire glued to the back of your front teeth and also a plastic retainer as part of your treatment.
It is your responsibility to ensure the retainer is worn according to our instructions.
