Lingual Braces

Unlike traditional and ceramic braces, these special braces work behind the teeth instead of the front. They are virtually invisible, leaving the front of your smile entirely untouched and that’s the main reason why they are more common among adults who deal with professional duties. 

Lingual braces can’t fix everything so if you’re interested in getting them, you should first ask your orthodontist if they’d work in your unique case.


  • Appearance: Lingual braces are invisible when smiling.
  • Speed: If lingual braces are right for your case, they can be fast.


  • Cost: Lingual braces are more expensive than both traditional and ceramic braces.
  • Discomfort: Some patients report feeling discomfort when wearing lingual braces because of their position. More uncomfortable than traditional braces since the tongue frequently comes into contact with them.
