Lingual Incognito™ Hidden Braces
Incognito™ Hidden Braces are a unique orthodontic treatment option featuring customized braces placed on the back side of the teeth where they are completely hidden from view. Since they are completely customized for you, Incognito Hidden Braces offer many treatment options.
Incognito Hidden Braces can treat nearly any orthodontic issue, while Incognito Lite Hidden Braces are specially designed to fix just your "social six" - the teeth that are visible at the front of your mouth.
No matter which option you choose, no one will know you're wearing braces – unless you tell them!
VS. Traditional Metal Braces and Clear Braces
Traditional metal braces and clear braces are worn on the front of your teeth and a mouth full of metal isn't necessarily your preferred look. Incognito Braces are applied to the back of your teeth, meaning no one will know you're wearing braces unless you tell them.
VS. Clear Aligners
Clear aligners, such as Invisalign® Aligners, are made of a shiny plastic and must be removed to eat and drink. The aligners are visible and many find them very inconvenient to remove every time you sit down to eat(take it from Incognito Braces patient Mary). If you don't wear the aligner, your teeth will not move. Incognito Braces are invisible and work all day every day to straighten your teeth.

How long will it take to see results?
Each case is unique, so the length of time it takes to see results with Incognito Hidden Braces varies. Many people begin to notice changes before their next appointment.
