Incognito Hidden Braces are an excellent option for professionals and anyone else who prefers a more discreet alternative to traditional metal braces. The system involves customized braces that are placed on the backs of the teeth, rather than the front, hiding them from view.
How Incognito Hidden Braces Work
Incognito Hidden Braces are a type of lingual braces, a term used to describe braces that are affixed to the back of the teeth so they can’t be seen when you smile. The braces are smooth and low-profile to minimize their impact on your speech and maximize their comfort.
Traditional metal braces are a one-size-fits-all solution, with the same type of brackets and wires used for every patient, but Incognito Hidden Braces are customized to our exact specifications and fabricated by a dental laboratory. They’re a unique system made to fit your teeth and help you achieve your personal treatment goals. As with any other type of braces, you will come to our office every 4 to 6 weeks so Dr. Stachel can monitor your progress and make adjustments.
In addition to Incognito Hidden Braces, we also offer Incognito Lite Hidden Braces, which are designed to fit only the “social six,” or the six teeth that are visible at the front of your mouth. Whichever option you choose, you’ll be able to get the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted without feeling self-conscious about wearing braces.
Frequently Asked Questions About Incognito Braces
Do Incognito braces take longer?
Incognito Hidden Braces do not usually take longer than traditional metal braces.
Do Incognito braces hurt more?
When you first get Incognito braces, you’ll feel some tightness and discomfort, but no more than you would experience with regular braces. This will resolve after you get used to wearing them.
Do Incognito braces fix overbites?
Yes, overbites and a number of other bite issues can be corrected with Incognito braces. During your consultation, Dr. Stachel will let you know if you’re a candidate for lingual braces and help you compare your different treatment options.
What can you not eat with Incognito braces?
Foods that are very hard, sticky, or chewy should be avoided with Incognito braces, just like with traditional metal braces. We will provide you with a detailed list of foods to avoid and other care instructions.
Do Incognito braces give you a lisp?
Because of their placement on the backs of the teeth, Incognito Hidden Braces can affect your speech for a few days after you first start wearing them. You’ll quickly adjust, though, and you’ll start speaking normally again soon after.
