Lingual braces are unnoticeable to the eye as they are attached to the back of your teeth. They most often address the six upper and six lower teeth.

As the name implies, lingual braces are fitted on the back of the teeth (tongue side) and is completely invisible to your friends and family.

Treatment time lasts 4 to 6 months usually but it may be longer depending on your situation.

Not every patient is a candidate for lingual braces and your suitability will be determined at the time of your initial consult.

If invisibility is your reason for choosing lingual braces, Invisalign is another potential alternative for you.
