For patients who wish to straighten their teeth without placing appliances to the front surfaces of the teeth, London Bridge Smiles offers lingual braces. These innovative braces are applied to the back of the teeth, facing the tongue, to provide a discreet treatment. Please call us at 757-644-5421 to make your appointment with our dentists and learn more about lingual braces in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
While there are many discreet orthodontic treatments, not all dental problems requiring orthodontics can be treated with clear braces or plastic aligners. Lingual braces are often a great treatment to provide the necessary corrections to your teeth while still allowing you to maintain your natural smile.
Lingual braces are placed on the back surfaces of your teeth, facing the tongue, and are nearly invisible from the outside as a result. Even when viewed from a close distance, lingual braces are difficult to see. Lingual braces are more efficient than clear aligners for correcting rotations, changing the height of teeth, and closing gaps left by tooth extractions.
When you receive lingual braces, our dentist will need to take an impression of your teeth. While lingual braces function like traditional braces, applying gentle pressure to move your teeth into the correct positions, they need to be custom-made to ensure effective treatments. You can expect to wear your lingual braces for 18-36 months.
If you are considering lingual braces, please remember that the custom design of this treatment adds to the cost of your service.
