Incognito Braces

Straighten your teeth without anyone realising!

  • Virtually impossible to notice
  • Braces placed on inner surface
  • Improve appearance & straighten teeth

Incognito braces, otherwise known as Lingual braces, work in the same way as the traditional metal bracket system. However, Incognito braces are attached to the rear of the teeth, making them far harder to spot than braces fixed to the front.

The Incognito straightening system functions much like traditional braces in that it shifts teeth into their correct position by threading a wire though brackets which have been fixed to the teeth. By tightening the wire, pressure is applied to the teeth and they are slowly pulled into alignment.

However, this system places the metal brackets and wires on the backs of the teeth, otherwise known as the lingual surface of the tooth. Since the brackets and the wire are hidden behind the teeth, they are almost impossible to notice under normal circumstances.

Learn more about Incognito braces

What are incognito braces?

Incognito braces are also known as lingual braces. They are the new generation of braces that are placed on the back of your teeth instead of the front. 

How are incognito braces fit?

The only main difference between Incognito braces and traditional braces is that Incognito braces are placed on the back of your teeth rather than the front. The procedure works by using special silicone impressions fixed in wax to access each person’s precise oral dimensions. 3D technology is used to process the specifications so that every person’s bracket is custom-made for the individual’s unique orthodontic treatment.

The incognito straightening system uses the latest computer technology to plan your treatment and create custom braces. The whole process can take up to 12 to 36 months depending on your teeth. Incognito braces are predominantly popular amongst adults as they offer individuals the chance to change your teeth without the visibility of having metal braces. You’ll still be able to go about your day and attend special events without having to worry about your appearance.

What can i expect with the incognito straightening system?

It is possible to experience a slight lisp when you first start having braces, but most people have no problems at all. There also might be some initial pain and discomfort, but nothing that is unbearable. Any discomfort or soreness you may experience can be helped with over the counter painkillers. 

Will I need a retainer after treatment?

You will need to wear a retainer after your treatment has been complete. It is important that you wear your retainers as your orthodontist recommends as they will ensure that your teeth remain in correct alignment and do not move. 

Do Incognito braces hurt?

Lingual braces may create some soreness, mostly felt on your tongue because of where your braces are placed. However, the longer you wear your braces, the pain and irritation will decrease. 

Are Incognito braces suitable for adults?

Yes these braces are suitable for all ages. 

Alternatives to Incognito braces.

Contact our practices in Wandsworth, South West London or Esher, Surrey to discuss the best way to straighten your teeth.


What are the advantages of Incognito braces?

  • Invisible while straightening your teeth
  • Just as efficient as clear aligners

What are the disadvantages of Incognito braces?

  • They can cause a considerable amount of discomfort at first
  • May take longer than traditional metal braces
  • They may give you a lisp
  • They may be slightly more expensive than other teeth straightening methods

Will I be sedated?

No, this treatment does not require any local anaesthetic or any sedation.


How do I clean my teeth with Incognito braces?

You can clean your teeth with a soft-bristled toothbrush. Use this toothbrush to clean around the brackets and around the gum line Be sure to floss at least once a day. Flossing is a bit trickier while you have braces because the wires might cut through the floss. A way to avoid this is to use floss threaders instead of dental floss tape.

How many appointments will I need?

The length of your orthodontic treatment will vary based on your individual needs. Most cases require treatment for at least 12 months. It usually ranges from 12-18 months but if you are only looking to straighten mild crowding, your treatment could take as little as six months. In the same sense that if you have very severe overcrowding, your treatment may take longer. 

The amount of appointments you will need throughout your orthodontic treatment is entirely dependent on how much work is needed for your teeth to reach the desired alignment. Usually you will need an appointment every 6-10 weeks. These appointments will typically take no longer than 15-20 minutes depending on your needs. 



Lingual refers to the rear of the teeth, the side that is closer to the tongue. Lingual braces are fixed to the rear side of the teeth, rather than the front.
