Lingual Braces

Another way to invisibly move your teeth!

 Oppenheimer Orthodontics offers  lingual braces.

We use 3M™ Incognito™ Hidden Braces that are 100% customized for your mouth using state-of-the art technology to form the brackets and each individual wire. You won’t have to worry about remembering to wear a clear tray because these are attached to your teeth just like metal braces. However, these are bonded behind your teeth as opposed to the outside of your teeth.

How It Works

  • An impression of your teeth is taken and then sent to the 3M lab, where a model of your teeth is made. Working with your orthodontist’s instructions, a model of how your teeth should look is also made
  • Your doctor will then be sent images of what your teeth look like now and how they will look after treatment is finished. Your doctor will use his insight in order to finalize how your teeth should look when finished.
  • Brackets and wires are then custom-made for your teeth. This process takes about five weeks, creating 100% customized braces and wires to fit your mouth perfectly.
  • The appliances are then sent to your doctor, who will book your bonding appointment to attach the braces to your teeth.

Incognito Lite

Incognito Lite are specifically made to fix the front teeth or your “social six.” Usually used for adults who had braces earlier in life, but may have had some shifting of their front teeth over time and need some tweaking to get their smile back to perfect. This is similar to using clear aligners, but can help with some more complicated movements of teeth, and is also completely out of sight.

How much do they cost?

Every case is different so the costs can fluctuate, but Incognito Braces are affordable and comparable in cost to other appliances.Incognito braces are custom made out of gold, and the wires are also custom made for you, and therefore can cost up to $5000 more than metal braces due to external production fees.
