Many people want to straighten their teeth without everyone seeing their braces. Lingual braces are placed on the interior side of the teeth. This way, when you smile and speak, nobody can see that you are wearing braces.
Usually, lingual braces are placed only on the upper teeth, while the lower teeth have regular clear braces on the front. Sometimes, lingual braces can be fitted on the upper and lower teeth as well.
Lingual braces are a fully customised appliance system, and required considerable planning, laboratory steps and clinical skill to achieve excellent results that are no different to the results achieved with conventional braces. Because of the extra time required for each adjustment appointments, treatment fees for lingual braces are higher than similar treatment with conventional braces.
