If you've ever been told by your dentist that you should have your teeth straightened with braces 89117, the first thing you probably thought about was how obvious and ugly braces look. It's true that typical metal braces can be distracting and lead to self-conscious feelings about your appearance. However, just because you need to wear braces doesn't mean anyone has to see them.
Lingual braces are just like normal metal braces, except they're worn behind the teeth rather than the front. They'll still reshape your smile to the right position, but it will look like there's nothing on your teeth at all. When you smile, all that people see are the outer surface. Since lingual braces are attached to the inner surface of the teeth, they'll stay hidden from view.
Not all orthodontists can offer lingual braces as a part of your orthodontic treatment. Special training and practice is required for dentists to add lingual treatments to their services. At BracesLasVegas.com, we offer a variety of orthodontic treatments, including lingual braces. If you need braces, but can't commit to the distraction of visible metal on your teeth, make an appointment and talk to our staff about how lingual braces can make it happen.
